Changing over to Hiking

I’m shifting this blog to the one thing I have been doing the most of lately, hiking!!! It’s not just about the workout but also the serenity it gives.  The mountain becomes your best friend, the ground your one connection and as you climb or descend, the trail guides you.

So, keep posted.  I will write about some recent hikes I have done, and will escalate it to where I am now with a sudden desire to tackle as many of the Catskills 3500 footers as I can.  I’m looking forward to it.

Hello All…

To the one person that is going to read this… me… I say hello… You will notice as you read this that I really enjoy using the …  I am not sure why, it just happens as I am typing.  I’m starting this blog anew after quite some time without touching it.  This of course is not to say that I touched it at all before.  It will be my pseudo diary for the diatribes that come to my mind.  It will be everything from social commentary to my thoughts on some random tech subject.  Maybe I will get some 3-4 followers eventually.

The current splash pic of Gabriel, the youngest of my two sons.  He likes being called Gabe, we call him Gabby.   Anyway, that picture was taking in the Summer of 2011 in Ithaca at Robert H. Treman State Park.  They have a swimming hole there with a diving board right in front of Lucifer Falls.  At this point this was the 4th year in a row we visited Ithaca during the Summer and Gabe 5 when we started going, was always trying to build up the courage to take that 25ft plunge into 20ft deep water.
