      I picked up the new brochure for the Otto Farm trail in September. The trail terrain is now easily walkable. Of course it has some modest climbs and descents, and it is a decent walk from the parkng lot to the southwest end of the cornfield.

      Let me know if I can assist in anything regarding the Antietam muster.

      I've been off CWDG for two months and have tried to re-subscibe via my new email. I'll try again today
