    It rained this morning and it's getting ready to rain again. I had just enough time in between to fix Kathy's '78 VW Bus so that it will pass NY State inspection, which is due by the end of the month.

  • What's For Dinner?

    We;re going out for dinner today to give my nephew a send off, he leaves for the Navy later this week. Gave him a choice of anyplace and he chose IHOP. Not where I would have chosen for the last supper but that's OK. Because of his high school grades and how he scored on the ASVAB test they already have him slated to be a nuclear powerplant tech on submarines. Yeah, he's smart, he probably could have gotten into most any college but chose the Navy instead. I'm both glad and sad at the same time.

  • Hiking & Biking

    Yesterday on Long Island it was clear blue sky, warm but not hot, kind of day, In the afternoon I went out on the new bicycle and did the longest ride to date. While I don't have a bike computer, or smart phone, to actually measure distance I'm estimating the ride to have have been in the neighborhood of 25 miles. It was mostly on roads with a low traffic count so I actually got to enjoy the ride. It's not hiking, but at least I got to enjoy the outdoors.

  • I didn't have time to watch the whole thing but I sure wish my kids would have wanted to do stuff like that.

    Kathy and I only have 1212.3 miles remaining. I better hurry and get that 2000 miler application filled out. I'm sure we'll have the entire AT finished in the next 50 years or so. Actually we have a plan, to finish the northern half by the time we retire and then do the southern part as 1 journey. Next summer we expect to finish Maine. The dividing line for us between north and south is Harpr's Ferry.
