What a lovely afternoon! Sunny and 71F with a very gentle breeze :)

Lots of people agree and are out in the woods today.

I am continuing the theme of the woods from my last book about the AT and am listening now to "Walden" by Henry David Thoreau.

After a looong ordination service at the Cathedral this morning and pizza afterwards I didn't get home till 4, so I'm confusing the dog with an afternoon walk :)

Warm and humid again, 78F.

For the first time in a long time I've passed 2 people smoking on the trail today going the other way. I'm supposed at how foul I find the smell and that it lingers for about 500 yards :(

Further AT adventures.

Early Tuesday

I've switched my hours at work from 7:30 - 3:30 to 9 - 5, this is going to be a huge advantage as we go into the fall and winter as I'll be able to walk Holly in the mornings when it's light rather than in the dark after work :)

Gray and humid, 65F.

More AT tales.

Another drizzly, cool day, I actually put on jeans and a rugger shirt! Raining gently and 65F.

I mentioned the AT to Jackie, and she actually suggested that I take a week and try doing a section :) I think it's a bit late in the year to do it this fall, but I very well might think about doing it in the spring!

Saturday, September 8, 2018


Cooler and a bit drizzly, 68F. Maybe fall is actually upon us?

This is a dangerous book to listen to, I wonder if Kate would give me 6 months off to hike the AT?
