I am trying out a new maps plug-in which shows the location of posts. Unfortunately it doesn’t sync up with my existing GPS tracks, so I have to manually set the trip locations on old posts. [Edit:] The map is now available on the Trip Planning Resources page. Here is the map of all the […]

We had too many chores this weekend, so we didn’t go exploring. One of the chores was taking Isaac’s skin on frame kayak up to Turner Wilson to get resized. Turner had intentionally built the kayak with an extra large masik that he could carve back as Isaac grew. In the meanwhile, I wrote up […]

As is tradition, I made applesauce. Diane, Jason, and Ian came over to help and we made a fall celebration out of it. Last year I had tried a wide variety of apples. Isaac wanted something a little different this year, and I wanted more of the Cortland flavor. The farm stand had the same […]
