In Which we Have A Host of Firsts

After last week’s longer post, this one will be a tad shorter.  Yep, Earl, Yogi, and I headed up to Yellowstone.  We also ticked another couple of states off my map and saw some national monuments.  You know, just a normal run-of-the-mill week.  Firsts include visiting the first National Park, the first National Monument, and…

In Which we Extend the Weekly Post

This week I had a travel week, as I’m positive you guessed from the end of last week!  Sorry for the delayed post, it will make sense though.  This week there was also some rafting, hiking, and a first! Oh, and a little bonus for you, we’re going to continue on through to Wednesday. Why?…

In Which I Visit Another State and Revisit a River

Yep, new state, winning! Also, I saw the Mighty Mississippi again. The alliteration got blown up when I discovered the Missouri River joins the Mississippi in Missouri at St Louis.

So let’s explain questival and how we got here.  Firstly, this is all my fault, I saw it on Facebook and decided it looked cool.  Thankfully it…

In Which Some Dirt is Moved….. Slowly. Oh, and Food.

As I’m sure you absolutely recall, my week started a tad earlier than normal with a flight to Fargo.  The week ended noisily. So Monday and Tuesday in Fargo were all about watching dirt get dug out in the flat fields of the Lake Agassiz Basin.  We arrived on Monday morning, 0800 (late start) with…

In Which we Live a Life of Luxury (ish)

This week has been a more quiet week.  I guess everything is relative.  I did manage to get some travelling half done, but that is about it.  A brief summary of my work week goes something like this:  So Monday was a day, it had only one meeting, which came with a host of actions…
