failed intercept in Boxford, but passively made the point via visible tracks
in the snow
(This kickstarted the whole "hunting AMC hikes" thing, a harmless game to test one's skills in park knowledge and predictive trail routing)
February 2023: Quick fly-by in Harold Parker, near Brackett Pond, nice cold day (Amy Kelliher)
April 2023: successful fly-by in Wildcat, not written up. The group barely even noticed me, the passing was so fast (Robin Doyle)
successful intercept(s) in Harold Parker, well worth a writeup, with some
early strategy discussion.
This, however, was the one that got so badly interpreted and really set them off (Mag)
Quick stop by a conveniently timed group-up in Harold Parker, just to
drop a plug for our Friends' weekly Wednesday outings before proceeding

Finally met that leader and her massively friendly Golden (Amy Kelliher)
Another double-meeting, in Lynn Woods.
two AMC groups
in the park that day; I crossed paths with one group twice but never
found the other.
[Apparently he'd canceled, I found out later.]

On the second meeting they labored their way up to the stone tower and found
me sitting at its base taking a quick break; that timing and placement was
