Chilling at Camp

20120826-095049.jpgI The sound of fall is already here-acorns bouncing off the roof and the deck here overlooking Hobbes Pond in Hope.

We’re ready to take out a couple of Keowees for a paddle down by the cove this morning, checking for turtles and herons.

I have already waked 5 miles up and back from Pushaw’s Trading Post, where I bought the Sunday paper.

When I came back, I was drenched from the humidity, but this time I enjoyed my first ever hot shower from the outdoor “rinsing station” that was one of several recent additions to our deal here.

A great start to a Sunday just a short bit away from home.

About tjamrog

I'm sixty-five years old, retired, and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I like reading, and am outdoors every day. Nature is my gym. My exercise program involves more walking. For my upper body and core workout, I'll be shoveling snow, and when that's done, cutting, splitting, and hauling firewood. I have practiced Transcendental Meditation for an hour daily for the past 45 years.
