Sorry for my silence, I am in another place that has little cell service. To make up for it here is a long-for-2022 blog post…

Since I couldn’t camp last week and I messed up my calendar dates thinking that the hash campout was this weekend, I have popped up to Fort Mountain State Park for a long weekend of camping. I am hoping to get in some road cycling while I am here. Black bears are out up here, thus changing my camping routine completely. A bear wandered the campground around 7pm last night, it didn’t come very close, but it got close enough for my liking. Having to keep all coolers and food in my car may keep me from driving somewhere to go for a long bike ride since I planned to empty the car when going somewhere else to ride. At about 8pm I saw a cat walking through the park. There is a little bit of everything up here!

Thus far the weather has been ideal, and it looked perfect going forward, and then it started raining heavily at 9:15pm. As if this morning everything outside is soaked; as I type this it is still too dark to see how things look around my tent, and the forecast says light rain again at 8am. DANGEN!

Am I happy yet? Obviously not. The constant nagging of injuries and genetic maladies are really wearing me down. You know my thumb will never be 100% since damage it at Spring Tune Up? It hurts to this day, and I assume that I did nerve damage to it that weekend.

By coming up here to go camping last night I skipped a concert for a band I really wanted to see, at the new venue on Memorial Drive, because I couldn’t deal with the emotional stress.

Amazon continues to piss me off. I placed an order that was due to arrive next Thursday. Then the shipping date got moved to Monday, fine. Now they say it will be delivered Saturday, not fine since I won’t be home until Monday! I get that Amazon doesn’t give a shit about me, but I keep thinking that when I place an order and a shipping date is quoted that I have entered into an agreement. Shame on me.

There you go, enough blather to last you an entire weekend.

My body is acting up again. I am such a genetic misfit.

Failed to get into two paid surveys last night. I thought that I was getting into both. Frustrating. That money could have paid for my hotel room for the wedding.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 186.8 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in); surprising given all of the depression eating/drinking I’ve done this past week.

Today is the eighteenth anniversary of my carjacking, the event which ultimately started me blogging.

Even though I removed it from my calendar months ago it feels weird to be skipping Busted’s “Bring Your Own Boat” camping weekend at Red Top Mountain this year. I have looked forward to this outing for the past three years and even went as far as to rent the pioneer campground last year when Busted decided to go to Prague for the hash. I am only missing because of the way my life has changed, and that fucking sucks for me.

Went to Aldi yesterday looking for the vegetarian chicken and waffles item they had in their weekly flyer. Unfortunately it was nowhere to be found in the Decatur store.

Funny (to me) story: last night I listened to an interview with Kevin Bacon. The interview talked about his movie They/Them. This is the movie which was being filmed at Hard Labor State Park when I spent a night over there last October. It’s a horror movie, so I will never watch it.

Any plan to go on a long bike ride today went out the window when I arrived home last night at 11:15pm. It was a long day of hashing, drinking, and having fun.

It was a good way to end my birthday month and put my hashing days to rest for awhile.
