Day 488, Sunday, June 28

Couple of Brody walks, some yard work, and a short bike ride in the evening bring today's total to 6.03. Yesterday was 4.37. Pleasant sunny days and still cools down enough to sleep at night. Once Jim kicks his cold he'll be cutting hay.

Day 487, Saturday, June 27

Finally, I have me, my data, and website all in one place.

Here's where I'm at as of today:

YTD miles: 527.1

AT miles: 1406.96

Virtual Walk miles: 1504.78

I hope the euphemism about "walking the Appalachian Trail" started by the wayward South Carolina governor doesn't stick. That would make for some potentially interesting discussion.

I hope your recovery is back on track, Bonnie.

Day 486, Friday June 26

Our first computer was a 486...

In my exciting little world, I've been walking. With Brody, without Brody. Just a bunch of steps! Thursday 5.4 miles, today 6.05. We had a downpour in the early afternoon today but it's back to pleasant and sunny this evening.

Day 482, Monday, June 22

Just to catch you all up on our last ten days, and the trip out to the west coast of BC. We did two official hikes and spent many other hours scrambling over rocks along the islands' coastlines. We had our bikes along and went cycling a few times also.

This particular trail was on Galiano Island. I've posted up more photos (and a journal of sorts) at my blog, and the best photos over all are going up at Facebook.

The stats for the ten days? 63.3 miles, of which about 10 was cycling.

YTD: 794.92

Day 481, Sunday June 21

Thursday did the elyptical for 3 miles. We had to pack for the hike so no walk in the evening.

Friday walked the Gale River Trail 4.5 miles. Nice hike with light rain, managed to fall into one of the river crossings but no damage done. Bonnie hiked well.

Saturday hiked out to the Bonds, made Bond and West Bond, but didn't have time for Bond Cliff. It looked like a storm so we cut it short, but the sky's cleared up for 2 hours and we had great views from West Bond and looking back from Guyot. Hiked down South Twin with a professor from Texas who specializes in water rights law, interesting discussion, about 9 miles total.

Sunday hiked back to the car, no problems with water crossings today 4.5 miles. No energy left for evening walk. Once again Bonnie hiked well.

Another cloudy and drizzly day, but got up early and played golf 3 miles. Ran at noon for 3 miles, actually felt the best I've felt in a long time, and finally walked 1.5 in the evening with Bonnie. Supposed to clearup today, but rain forecast for the weekend. Ah well they say "No Rain, no Maine".

Day 470, Wednesday June 10

I've been faithfully recording my steps every day on my spreadsheet. Too bad I don't make it all the way here! Busy this week (isn't it always, this time of year?) getting our bees settled in and prepping for vacation. We leave for ten days Friday morning, so you likely won't see me till we're home. I'll keep track of steps though so I can load it all up when we're back. Current stats:

Day 469, Tuesday, June 9

It rained here, fortunately letting up to mere drizzle and mist for the baseball game David and I went to. David went into Boston with me for the art class and went through some of the museum exhibits while I splashed acrylic on paper. Then we had dinner at PFChang's before we walked over to Fenway for the game. The Red Sox won. The only problem was that I forgot the pedometer. I'm guessing 4.5 miles based on previous similar excursions.

And no sign of this thing people call summer. Though I suppose we're still in spring, it feels more like April with all the showers.

Deep into Spring here (yeah, I know it's June tomorrow). Thunderstorms, wonderful lightning shows, and even liquid so the hope is no fires.
