So, I know I’ve been sucking out and not posting very much lately. But, things around here have been busy… really. So, the big news first:
My wife Mari was recently offered a short-term position teaching geology at Bates College in Lewiston, ME and it looks like we will be moving out there sometime towards the end of July or beginning of August. Now, we’ve lived in Houghton for the last decade or so and this is going to be a big change and a lot of time has been being spent on figuring out where we’re going to stay, when we’re moving, how we’re moving, etc… There is still a lot to work out, but I’ll let everyone know more as soon as we know more.
Next up… a lot of my recent time spent not at work has been spread out between trying to do a better job helping out around the house and running/biking. With Mari spending a lot of time at home this winter after graduating I was able to get complacent and didn’t really have to do much because Mari was being a super-wife and pretty much taking care of everything. Now she has more on her plate and I’m doing my best to help pick up the slack. Let’s just say it’s a work in progress. As for the biking/running… I pretty much always try develop some kind of routine. And with all of the traveling I did this winter there wasn’t much time left for things like working out and spring arrived with me being heavier than I’ve been in a very long time. Because of this I’ve really been trying to make sure to take advantage of any free time and getting out from behind the computer and getting on the bike or going for a run. I’m feeling pretty good and just need to start bumping up my milage and things should take care of themselves.
On the photo front things have been a little quiet. I haven’t been shooting too much, but when out I’ve been trying to make the most of it. I captured some early spring surfing a few weeks ago and it looks like some of the images might be appearing in the fall issue of The StandUp Journal. Below in the most recent issue of Adventure Kayak I happy to say I have a handful of images. Here’s the link to the online version – Click Here.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Hopefully, I will start getting out a little more now that the weather and trail conditions are improving. Getting out more means more posts, so stay tuned.
