As some of you know, I’m involved with a fairly major construction project that go off slow and way too much work has had to be done in the winter. The good news is that we’re far enough north that we’re getting the benefit of global warming… We’ve had a mild winter and a lot of work has happened so on Tuesday, a couple of guys joined me and we prepared a Dutch Oven lunch of baked chicken, potatoes and cobbler for 44 construction workers. We had enough food, but there were no left-overs! It was a lot of fun and hopefully they know that we appreciate them working through the winter.
The cooking crew... Don't tell Osha that I wasn't wearing a hard hat.
Eating in the partly constructed building...
Other than that, I hit the gym four days this week. I skipped Friday because I was a chaperon for the Middle School ski club in the evening. Even though the hills here aren’t as large as Vancouver, I can assure you they were just as icy. A night of skiing on icy runs does give a little burn to the thighs. I was hoping to do some more cross-country skiing, but the warmer temperatures have, once again, ruined the base we had. We’re suppose to get more snow this week.
Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll finish my next segment in my Appalachian Trail hike, where I hike over Mt. Washington and the Presidentials in New Hampshire. I also have some more stories to write about the desert southwest… Maybe this week, but that’s what I said last week.
What are you doing this weekend?
