My daughter, Sam Capers, took part in the student walk out at Randolph Early College High School as part of the #Enough! National School Walkout to raise awareness of school safety and remember the 17 people killed 1 month ago in Florida.
The students stood silently for 17 minutes, it was very respectful, ending with a single student asking they all be nicer to each other, to talk to each other.

Throwback Tuesday. That time I was almost the cover of Toyota Trails, the TLCA magazine. I wrote a story called “Plan B” how adventuring with my Toyota Tacoma leads to many Plan B decisions. This year we had planned to go to Nova Scotia, but something came up, so we headed to Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia, after a couple of cold nights and bear visits, my friend’s wife wanted warmth, so we headed to Cape Hatteras for the rest of the vacation….. I am never  unhappy if camping.

I am tired of winter, it’s March, they cancelled indoor tennis and I am riding in my basement. 1 hour with an Aussie video I found on YouTube. Workout is from CTXC videos, for my Toyota friends – tons of Hilux and Cruiser sightings

I am also playing with the iPhone and video so I can help my students and what they are experiencing on internships.

Sunday morning – back to reality and back work. I needed to prep for Monday and had plans in the afternoon, so early to work. Best quote of the day, “It must be convenient to always have a bed with you.” #flippac for the win.

March 8, 2017 – my morning


The box home improvement stores were not helping me, so I visited a specialty store… Debbie’s Hardware in East Rochester. They had EVERYTHING!


I had time for a quick snow shoe run before lunch, that hurt, I have not been running… I forgot how snow the tail kicks up, but I really enjoyed being out there.


Nick Tahoe’s Garbage Plates with ex-coworkers! It was great re-telling tells of old and making fun of co-workers who blew me off! Thanks Scott, Max and Annette for meeting me!

As the Riddler said, “Riddle me this, Batman” How do you exhaust a bathroom fan that is installed at the eave and the roof vent is back about a 2 feet, clue don’t ask Lowes…. they only point to an aisle.


From the song “Low Bridge” –

I’ve got a mule and her name is Sal
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal
She’s a good old worker and a good old pal
Fifteen years on the Erie Canal


I didn’t get 15 miles in on the Erie Canal, the snow was too deep… I have never called my bike Sal, but I had a great ride, and a great day.

OK this chore still sucks, even if only to help your daughter. Makes me glad to live in NC


Sleepy baby, she slept on my chest for over an hour as we watched basketball, between the dogs playing, TV and talking, she can sleep through anything!
