Catching Up

DAY 106, Deer Park, August 31, 2013 – Consider this a catch-up report. It took all day Friday to learn the score of the Newberry-Rudyard High School football game played Thursday night. 32-zipdog, Newberry Indians over the Bulldogs.

Travellers’ Trivial Trevails in the U.P.

  We are in Copper Harbor, unloaded gear into room of our cabin, plugged in computers (this is a work trip) and there is a message saying the  router needs to be adjusted. So I hoof it up  to the office and tell the receptionist, where I hear her tell a man checking in that the […]
