Now that is the boost I needed!
Since Mike has been too busy to post you guys are stuck with me...again!
Jimmy got himself a rifle and proceeded to guard us everywhere we went the rest of the week. He even had to take it into the fort with us. While at the fort he got the hat to complete the outfit.After the fort Mike & I took the kids to the sites in the middle of the island. It turned into a 2+ hour hike without a map (thanks Mike). Fortunately we have a good sense of direction and another tourist came by while at Sugarloaf and loaned me his map to get our bearings, and a way home. While walking through the woods Jimmy took the lead and protected us along the way.
It was tough getting on that ferry and heading back home.
Now it's time to get ready to send the kiddos back to school ~ YEAH!!! But first the kids & I are taking one more small camping trip with my mom. That should be interesting.
Mike got his assignments for Dances with Dirt on September 6th. He will be doing 3 legs:
*Butt Kicker~ Abyss and Death by Mosquitoes areas are good opportunity to sprain an ankle. Nasty decline & climb in middle followed by Butt Slider should make ankle swell doubl in size
*This Sucks~ Swamps can make it hard to get legs out of the earth. Plain old wicked, only the best get to run it.
* Vertigo ~Couple of nasty downhills that may give you vertigo. Portions of nice trail, road and hill climbs, off trail running and a flat ending. Mountain climbs and butt slides in middle. No rivers but some wading thorough high grass. Open area can be brutally hot.
Gee, that sounds like fun doesn't it?
I'll see if I can get Mike to sit down and post his thoughts soon.
Thanks for reading
