Still at LBL

Hi again,
 I put a new gadget on the top right side for following the blog by e-mails. Try it and let me know if it helps.
 Wendy keeps asking me if I feel retired yet or 'on vacation'. I say I don't know how retired is suppose to feel.

 We are doing the things we would do on many vacations. We have been hiking quite a bit. We have taken a few bike rides - nothing to tough. And we have been riding around checking the area out(always looking for wildlife).

  We are staying in a nice national forest area which we prefer over some private campgrounds.

  We have hit a nice spell of weather. It is suppose to be in the 80s for the next few days. We  plan on inflating the kayak for a workout tomorrow. We should be able to just launch off our site. We only hope the wind isn't to strong.

 We have had some nice chats with a few people. We talked to a work camper at another campground that was from Madison WI. He had some good pointers for us. We also had a nice old fella offer us some fresh fish (crappies) he had caught. We were not in our area and no way to transport the fish. Nice offer though.  If I was staying here longer I would be tempted to get me a fishing licence.

 Oh and I had a good laugh today. While on a hike Wendy went to try and see how strong the vines hanging from the trees were. Well,I put the camera down to soon- what you don't see is Wendy on her butt. Seems the vines aren't quite the type Tarzan used. Sorry no pic.

                              She says she is just keeping me entertained. Oh yeah!


  1. Good story to put in your blog. You'll be glad in a year or so because so much will happen in between you'll forget the small details and stories.

    Keep 'em coming.

  2. We're just getting past the vacation stage, but still feeling we have to 'do it all'. We have to realize that there is time to see it again!
