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.
