Out for a bit

Image result for sidelined

Hello everyone, the blog is going to be pretty much quiet this week because I am still battling a head cold and hoping it doesn’t get any worse. Vitamin C, Mucinex, fluids, and soup are my best friends right now and I’m hoping to get back in the loop as quickly as possible. Until then, the blog is going to be sidelined like I am right now. I’ll be back soon!

I don’t write about them anymore, but I’m still a fan.

A few weeks ago I decided to give up sports blogging and man oh man, I am so happy I did. I find myself with more free time and don’t feel like I have a second job to work on every evening.¬† Continue reading

Japan: Lake Ashi

Image may contain: people standing, sky, mountain, cloud, outdoor and nature

Picture and scene were incredible on this day last year, the weather, not so much. 40 degrees, rain, and wind, but it was worth taking it all in.

As a side note, this tour, which is part of a sight seeing day tour that includes Mt. Fuji (which I could not see due to weather), includes a boat ride across Lake Ashi and then up Mt.¬†Komagatake. The Hakone cable car that takes you up to Mt. Komagatake is quite the trip. It’s an old car and man, when the wind picks up, the whole car shakes back and forth and with a full car (they pack you in), it can be a little unnerving. This is just something to keep in mind if you do this kind of tour.

Maybe Osaka is added to the 2019 agenda, who knows at this point. I’ve got my work cut out for me.

Getting Prepared: Water

So as I stated before, getting prepared well in advance of the storm season is a goal of mine in 2018. I’m not going hardcore and buying cases of MREs and such, but instead, picking up items here and there over time to get ready before everyone is rushing around as a storm approaches. One of the first things I am working on is securing my water sources.¬† Continue reading
