What a Summer!

This summer was a blur.

From June 26th to July 12th I was with the scouts in Philmont, New Mexico. We hiked 70 miles in the 10 we were in back country.  We did white water rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, spar pole climbing, black powered rifle shooting.  We hiked up Baldy mountain, 12,441 feet.  For 2 days we had 2 mules with us. One morning we woke up to a black bear trying to get at our food.

I ended up in India for 2 weeks on a business trip followed by a family vacation for 5 days in Maryland on the Chesapeake.

Here I am realizing that Thanksgiving is 5 weeks away.

Can someone please press the pause key?
