• Tent Ho!

    Last fall while backpacking in the Adirondacks we came across an abandoned tent. I decided that if I was going to be hiking around with a 50 pound pack on my back that I wanted more of a reward for my efforts, and not owning my own tent, decided to pack this one out with me. I didn’t know if it had all the pieces, and this May I finally got it set up to check it out. Its pretty nice, a three man tent, although I doubt you would really want to cram three adults in there. But hey, free tent!

  • A Wonderful Day at Winterthur

    We went to Winterthur Gardens and Mansion this Spring as part of the Celebration of Life for Jay Powell. It was a beautiful day, and the gardens were spectacular. The Azaleas were in full bloom, and the grounds around the estate were beautiful. It was a wonderful day, a fitting way to remember Jay, and a day I hope not to forget.
