:Yes, I meant that I was paddling out of the SRCA and going home on the 10th. But that took me from my campsite on Slang out to Hoel, so we wouldn't have crossed paths. The day before, I was...

American Chestnuts tend to get infected when the bark gets rougher & ridgier, as they mature. So the sprouts can get to be small trees before the blight kills them. That seems to be enough to keep...
