Slow Ride

No, not on my bicycle. If I were referring to it I’d entitled this post “No Ride”

My journey home yesterday from Black Mountain, NC was routed through Clayton, GA (home of Black Rock State Park) due to traffic concerns on I-64. The trip took longer than usual, and I missed the opportunity to buy cheap gas in South Carolina, but I’m sure that it was the quickest route available at that time.

I paid $1.799/gallon for gas in South Carolina at QT. And the QT farther down the road was $1.759! We’re getting screwed, Georgians.

As always LEAF was a lot of fun, and as is has been the case for many Fall LEAFs, very cold. The highs were in the upper 50s and the lows were in the low 30s. I wasn’t cold sleeping, but was rather chilly outside my tent during the night.

And as has always been the case the campgrounds are an AT&T dead zone so I was blissfully unaware of the Gators’ loss to LSU this weekend until Sunday afternoon.

This morning I am suffering from the combination of weather change and grass/dust allergies. I’ve also found a few spots around my neck where I failed to apply any sunscreen. Wheeeee!

My New Passport Is Here! My New Passport Is Here!
Actually, it arrive in the mail last Wednesday and I failed to blog about it until now.

I doubt that work will be sending be abroad after all, but a least now I have one fewer hurdle in order to return to Europe next year.

Monday Night Lavanderia!
Tonight I must do laundry because I am out of clean underwear. Of course I could go out and buy new underwear, but I really should do laundry because I have scheduled events for the next three evenings. Find out what they are when I blog about them each day.

Hope your weekend plans went as hoped.

    You do mean the next *four* evenings, correct? (Trivia Team Powers Activate!)

    Yeah, Georgia sucks – especially compared to the rest of the deep south. (love this map: At least we’re not Pennsylvania!

    Glad you had a fun (albeit cold) weekend. It got a little chilly up in Helen, too, where I headed off for a night to Oktoberfest. Thankfully, we had a lot of internal antifreeze so it was barely noticeable. 😉

  2. Ah, I should have been more specific and said plans on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights.

    Thanks to Randy and Lisa I had some Cinnamon Fireball to “improve” my hot chocolates.

    That is the best used of Fireball ever.
