    The company I retired from put me in for the Fedeal Aviation Administration's Master Mechanic award. They also presented me with a gold plated ratchet wrench engraved with my name and " Master Mechanic". I wish I had worked for them longer than I did, it's a good place to work.

    Today was a beautiful day, mid 60s, little breeze, blue sky and bright sun. We took our bicycles out and did a leisurely 10.24 miles. Very enjoyable! Pretty much just the opposite of Race Across America.

    I've seen videos of Race Across America before. It's amazing what the participants put themselves through. I guess it's like what people do to attempt a FKT on any of the long trails.

  • I got to see the eclipse by using my welding mask. It wasn't totally covered here on Long Island. Nice but nothing life changing.

    Today it was 5.75 miles around a lake in a local county park. While I didn't take any photos we saw several kinds of water fowl, ducks, swans, geese, as well as osprey, wood peckers and other birds. All kinds of plants are starting to bloom as spring sets in. Today was in the low 50s with a 15 MPH wind. The wind made it feel chilly when we stopped walking but it was warm enough when we were moving. I'm starting to think I should start keeping track of our mileage.

  • I just read that there places declaring a state of emergency because of the eclipse...really people, what's up with that ?

But we did find them, making it a literal wild goose chase.appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…f5f61d374baffa9fc9c62d179 ” Good looking birds.

    Yesterday we went to the next town over to walk. It's an old town with many houses from the 1800s that overlook the harbor. Also it has a number of pretty good hills. From the top of one we had a good view of Connecticut, across the Long Island Sound. I was looking for Coach Lou and Elf but didn't see them

    Kathy and I went for a ride today in a hilly section of town. And don't you know the bikes shifting wasn't working right, I couldn't get into lower gears. A quick adjustment at home should have that fixed. So we only road a little over 9 miles. I also took the toe clips off and now need to get different pedals. I'm staying away from what is called "clipless" pedals. Think I'll get some MKS pedals with a regular cage.

IF the thin clouds stay, we might get some views. IF....IF.....There is rain but not until after the eclipse. ” Life is full of uncertainty and "ifs"

  • Earthquake

    Forget about the upcoming eclipse, did anybody else feel the earthquake this morning. We were sitting in a funeral home and the whole place began to rumble and shake. Evidently the quake was centered in NJ , a little west of NYC and was a 4.7 on the Richter scale. Now that was cool since no real damage was done.

    Quote from hikerboy: “The plan begins today. Taking Amtrak to Gaineville, Ga, gets in Thursday 7:25 am. I had bought a coach seat for $165 (private rooms started at $615, which I wasn't going to spend) A few days ago, I received an upgrade option where you place a bid starting from $160 to $615 to upgrade to a roomette, which has a bed and a private toilet. I put in a bid for the minimum $160, and a few hours later got an email that my bid was accepted. So at least I'll have a bit of privacy and…

  • Happy hunting,... I mean shopping There are websites that specialize on used gear, if that helps. The one that comes to mind right now is geartrade. There are more but I'm drawing a blank right now.
