Still Busy...

So, things haven't really slowed here much.

One obligation bleeds into another and one task into the next.

I've missed Spring.

I've missed MOST of Summer.

The Fall is just around the corner it seems.

I've got some blog-related things in the works. I hope to be able to share them with you before the snow falls. :)

Thanks for reading,

I'm back!

After a slight change in plans (something involving cleaning the garage first) I managed to get out during the hottest part of the day.

I have literally just walked back in the door and will have some pictures and a write-up for you as soon as I get finished with an icy cold shower and a big glass of water. :)

Thanks for reading,



Today, I'm going to take a hike...

I can't believe it's been so long since I had some free time.

I'm picking up a new pack at REI this morning, a Camelbak M.U.L.E., and I'm going to load it with minimal gear and loads of water (it's going to be 93° today) and head out to see if the mosquitoes will carry me away.

I have a new GPS app on my iPhone and will start to record my treks to see how far I've gone, how long it took me to go from Point A to Point B, and to keep a track of which parts of the woods I've covered. We'll see if the antenna on the iPhone is better than the Garmin CSx I had. It was pretty much worthless under heavy canopy.

Pictures and a report to follow...

See you soon.

Hello Again!

No, I'm not gone.

I haven't retired from blogging.

I've just been committed to too many projects.

Fortunately, I'm starting to close those doors and reopen the old ones.

Sorry it's been so long since the last update.

Thanks for reading,
