Well… November is definitely not going to go as smoothly as September and October did. We now have two new challenges to consider on our field collection days – Daylight Savings Time and Hunting Season.
When the clocks rolled back they severely cut into the daylight hours we have for good visibility and decent photos. The days from here on out are only going to get shorter and shorter; not much I can do about that except go out more often, just in shorter bursts.
Hunting Season is making things tricky. I have already completed all of the easy to reach cemeteries and graveyards so the only ones left are the more remote and hard to reach sites. Therein lies the problem. I’m not the only one mucking through the woods and marsh anymore, and I sure don’t want to become an accidental target. So I went out and bought a lovely Day-Glo orange hunting vest. I think it really brings out my eyes. We definitely stand out now…
Better safe than sorry…
But on the plus side there are no more ticks, chiggers, or mosquitoes lurking about. Or at least I haven’t seen any. Blast. I’ve probably jinxed us now. Never mind.
I know I am SO far behind on posting new gravesite photos, I have tons downloaded from my camera, and I just haven’t had a chance to go through and sort and resize them yet. I promise to get some new ones up soon. But for now here’s where we stand.
Count as of November 1st – 175 Gravesites located in Dorchester County.
