Oh wow, it’s past 6:30am? Though I have “only been awake” since 5:00am, I’ve been busy. I’ve made a pot of coffee, did the Friday crossword puzzle in the Washington Post (avoiding all election-related news), packed most of my camping gear into the M6, and wandered down to the end of my street and liberated an old pallet to be used either in the garden, or given its state the firepit. (side note: I rediscovered that I won a circular saw, which is hand for cutting things like old pallets.)
Still on my agenda is to make/reheat and eat breakfast, clean up breakfast mess, pack my clothing, shower, do some German studying, and finish packing up the M6. Shove off time is scheduled for around noon since the campground is only about an hour’s drive from the ITP Estate. I should be drinking by 3:00pm EST. Woot!
Speaking of camping, I received my parking pass for 2021 in the mail yesterday. When I ordered it last week I kicked myself because I feared I cheated myself out of a month because my current pass is valid through the end of this month, and my order confirmation stated that the new one would be valid from October 2020 – October 2021. Fortunately, whoever punched the parking pass did so that it is valid through the end of November 2021. Get your camping mindset on for next year, I expect to do it more often especially because COVID will probably still be an issue.
Early candidates for my 2021 activities:
– vegetable gardening
– brewery visits
– outdoor gatherings in the ITP estate backyard farm
No news on my knee yet. Unsurprisingly, it still hurts.
Hope you are happy and healthy. Have a fucking (no Apple, not “ducking”, “fucking”) great weekend!
Uh oh, something internal to the blog may be broken. I have neither the time nor skill to work on it…
