The Fox would start out ahead of time, tramp all through the snow through the woods and the Hounds were supposed to find us. The game would last all day or until the hounds found us. What good clean fun.
It could be only 10 above 0 degrees but we never got cold. Sometimes the snow would be deep in places and go over the top and inside our arctics (over-shoes.) We wore big woolen socks, wool scarves around our necks and wool mittens.
Sometimes I think you miss so much by being brought up in Florida.
