Busy Day!

Well, it's soccer followed by more soccer and then off to a party followed by another party.

That doesn't leave me much time for getting into the woods but I'm scheduling a trip out tomorrow with a friend to get a little dirty, break out some of the gear that hasn't seen enough tough love, and get away from the everyday...

I just started reading a book by John Muir last night. He's the outdoorsman, environmentalist, and conservationist who helped shape Teddy Roosevelt's National Parks System and, apparently, quite a good writer.

He credits Thoreau with much of his inspiration so I look forward to seeing what parallels I can find between the authors.

When I can't get out and do at least I can still read about doing. :)

Thanks for reading,
