It snowed all day. I picked up my rental car this evening. Tomorrow morning I’m getting this trip underway come hell or high water. If I can’t cross the mountains I’ll stay the night somewhere, but my friends father who lives in western Colorado says the passes are passable. We spent the day at a […]
This may be the end of what I like to call the “Adam effect:” I always, always have good weather (defined as weather that does not alter my plans) when I travel. Probably it has something to do with the Red Sox. I am ready to leave Denver tomorrow, and it is snowing in the […]
If I had been able to get out of work early today I would probably be on a plane right now. But I’m leaving early tomorrow instead. Last night I called to arrange for a cab ride to the airport. So at 5:30 this morning I was awakened with a phone call: “You’re cab is […]
Work went fast today despite its uneventfulness. I have a long week this week: I still have five more days to go. I finished out my second year here last week and got a raise. The notice came today. Woo ha. I’m thinking about cutting the Mexico portion out of my vacation. It gets too […]
Work was uneventful. Spending an afternoon at our information desk is making me dread the coming winter. Thank god for volunteers. I’m trying to plan my vacation without planning it. This is a problem. The rental car companies aren’t very breezy about when and where you return their cars. I figured with over two weeks […]
Vacation plans are taking shape. It looks like I’ll be travelling to Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Mexico. We’ll see how it plays out. Worse than fire ants, moquitos, and deer flies? The biting gnats are back. I’ve been working on our john boats this week, getting them ready for this winter’s marsh tours.
I’m back from visiting my folks in Colorado. The weather there was great! Dry, clear, and sunny. I come back here to humidity. Despite the nice weather there, I only got a very little bit of hiking in. Sort of a disappointment. I’ve immediately set to work trying to plan the logistics of my next […]
The hurricane struck further east than expected, and unloaded it’s energy on the Alabama and Florida panhandle coasts.
It took me 10 hours to get to Vicksburg. It is normally a three and a half hour drive from home.
I received my birthday gift from my brother and sister in-law: the book “Still More George W. Bushisms.” Apparently the book has a couple of predecessors, which shouldn’t surprise me (recently W. said that terrorists “want to behead us so they can break our spirits”), but does. His father was good for only one book.
We went to Graceland Too in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Talk about a truly unique experience.
