When you ride to work then get a ride home from an offsite party then ride to work again you need a way to get both bikes home. Travoy trailer to the rescue.

Tried to take a picture of the space station last night. Clearly 60 seconds was too long an exposure to keep it in the frame...

Fly fishing. Do they have a 'season'? Yesterday the river was unpopulated, today there are several male humans at every bend.

I said a Georgia, Georgia
A song of you
Comes as sweet and clear
As moonlight through the pines

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still in the peaceful dreams I see
The road leads back to you

Saw something new on the trail today. I always see all kinds of wildlife but have never seen one of these just a few feet off the trail.

Owls are my favorite birds. There was a remarkable "Nature" episode about them that explained how they fly so silently and why they are such effective killers. When I rode the GAP I camped at Husky Haven. Maybe 15' from where I was sitting an owl grabbed a chipmunk and flew off with it. When hunting, an owl drops down vertically on its pretty with amazing force. That aids in disabling the prey.
