Cycling on the Schuylkill

Saturday, September 25, was a beautiful, sunny day with low humidity.  A whole gaggle of us (Matt, Weina, Matt's college roommate Ryan Schlueter who is staying with us, and Kathy and David) decided to rent bicycles and pedal up the Schuylkill River from the Art Museum to Falls Bridge, and back again.  The hiking/biking path was crowded with other outdoor enthusiasts, and the river was full of rowers doing time trials for a weekend regatta.  We spent a wonderful two hours.  More photos are on David's Facebook page (

Mohican Sunrise

This weekend we traveled to the Mohican Outdoor Center in Blairstown, NJ, near the Delaware Water Gap, for the quarterly meeting of our "outdoor" club (ok, Henry?).  We had a wonderful dinner Saturday night with some of the Appalachian Mountain Club staffers - John and Dave - and Matt, a former staffer, and Diann and Quint, who are both committee members.  Saturday dawned early and we hiked to the AT at the top of the ridge above the Mohican Outdoor Center with Jennifer and Tamara.  Jennifer is a Youth Opportunities Program counselor and she had invited her posse to stay the weekend at Blueberry Hill Lodge.  The four of us climbed from darkness to dawn on the ridge and witnessed this awesome sunrise, with clouds (fog) below us in the Paulinskill River Valley.  After breakfast we spent the rest of the day until mid-afternoon solving all of the problems of the world with the Mohican Volunteer Committee.  Back here at home, I look at these sunrise photos and realize that I don't think we've ever had such a dramatic view of clouds below and sun above.  Just shows you that the hikes around the Center can always surprise and inspire!

Great White

Here's the big boy that will take us on the road. He's feeling a little under the weather now. Doesn't want to start. But we're working with him.

Test Post

Okay, friends, so here's a test post.  Kathy and I are looking forward to the time we travel - sometime in 2012 - and we want to keep a daily diary or blog of our adventures and musings.  We'd like to get into the rhythm of it ahead of time.  So this will be practice for a while and won't necessarily happen every day.  If you want to follow our adventures, you can become a follower.
