What's been going on?

What's been going on?

  • Fall cleaning at the house.
  • Backpacking.
  • Walking.
  • Training - Speed Work.
  • Adjusting diet ... again.
  • Planning.
  • Working.
  • Sleeping.
That sums it up.

On October 27th Carrie, Baron and I went on a 20 mile - 26 hour backpacking excursion to Reavis Ranch in the Superstition Mountains.  The hiking was rocky and had a bit of climbing ... but we were basically alone for most of the walk. Bonus track: The famed apple orchard produced tons of apples this year. These trees are over a hundred years old and have not received ANY maintenance in years ... yet they still produce apples. These are real apples. Tasty ... and surprisingly small compared to the modified giants we see at the grocery store.

This past weekend we went on a 10 mile hike on Trail 100. It's still flipping hot on the desert floor. It was 92 degrees when we finished hiking on Saturday morning. Yesterday we did some straightening and cleaning around the house. I did a run/bike brick workout for speed. It's been a while since I have done a true speed workout and I could tell.

We also donated some clothing and knick knacks to the local Goodwill. It feels good to give away USABLE items. Sadly, I see people taking JUNK to Goodwill. I am torn on this. On one side I see that it might be better than being in the landfill. On the other side I feel like this stuff will eventually END UP in the landfill anyway.

Get out and vote ... but no matter which way you vote - don't be rude to people just because they don't vote like you. Remember - it is the lesser of two politicians ... where politicans = mostly corrupt. I wish we voted on LEADERS and leadership rather than parties, special intrest or politics.
