still here

I am still alive. Hard to believe it’s been almost a month since last post. But in that time I have been consumed with the home buying process, moving, and all the associated time-sucking activities. I figure it will be a few more weeks before I am back to semi-regular ruminations. Hope you all are well.

  1. Wow, that's a big step. Are you still in the B'more area? Will you ruminate for us on what inspired you to take the plunge into home-ownership?Part of my own silence on-line has been due to getting out and about, cycling, kayaking, and even a little hiking. Somehow, though, it still never feels as if I'm able to do enough of those things. I certainly hope that you'll be able to get back out on the bike and in the woods once your new home is settled into.

  2. See, that's my dilemma: On the one hand, you're right that it's a shame the trail is under-utilized because use is what protects these places and keeps them from being otherwise developed. On the other hand, the fact that it's so isolated and empty is what draws me there, knowing that it's a place where I can escape.I haven't done Tour Dem Parks yet. I'll be doing Tour de Port for the third time this year, but it's definitely a completely urban route. A very fun ride, but not an escape in any sense.

  3. Ah, the NCR (which apparently has a new name, by the way). I love that trail, too, especially when it crosses over the PA line and becomes the York Heritage. Haven't made it all the way to York yet, but that's partially because it's so hard to find a full day to get up there that won't be crowded.And I agree with you on organized rides like the TdP. Though I do appreciate that someone else went to the trouble of putting together a good route and that they provide good foodstuffs along the way. It's best if you can register early enough to get the discounted rate, that makes it less of a blow to the wallet. How's the new home?? And how is Fiznit?

  4. I hadn't heard of Cromwell before, but then I've only been that far around the beltway once, I think. Definitely looks like a nice spot, worth keeping in mind.Good to hear that you're all settling in and that Fiznit's happy!
