Today’s lunch and nap spot will do….

A long day at work, so it was night ride. My mind had been busy all day and tough to not be loud, I realized mountain biking is the only time my brain shuts down and really allows me to be in the moment, as soon as I loaded up, my brain went back to overdrive.

Kodak and I got out for an early before work hike
Nov. 25, 2022
Since REI started closing on Black Friday and encouraging customers to go outside, I have tried to do it (like I need a reason) and motivation today really helped. It started with rain and I couldn’t talk myself into a long hike in the rain, so I started to prep for indoor climbing when the sun came out. I know Uwharrie doesn’t get sloppy (or have erosion issues after light rains) so that is where I went. This is also the trail where I originally broke the Salsa Dos Niner 12 years ago, so it was nice to ride it there again
I had planned a longer ride but my elastomers in my Thud Buster completely disintegrated, I haven’t used the seat post in years, so not surprised. The failure gave me time to catch the second half of the UNC v NC State game

A day trip to Columbia and the first family gathering since my mom’s funeral. After dinner we went on a hike on trails behind Wendy and Wayne’s house.
Still had lots of color
The turn around point is a chicken coop
The coop even has a chandelier

I was sent out last minute to do a Nat Sound on the soft opening of a new bar. The grand opening is Nov. 25.

Newsroom meeting about the helicopter crash of our sister station and how we would air it.

I had a good thing for a while. Morning tennis and then a nap in the hammock before work…. but it’s getting too cold to sleep even with the puffy jacket.

I got closer today…. even got an interview with the NTSB
I always love how reporters get FULL credit when they didn’t even attend the event. I was lucky to find a local connection to Colorado Springs the day of the terrible shooting there.
