Saturday Oct 31 #

7 AM


I haven't looked yet, but I got a text message saying that the dumpster is gone.
4 PM

hiking (trails) 1:07:31 [1] 5.02 km (13:27 / km) +1m 13:27 / km
shoes: Oboz Sawtooth II

Around East Boston Camps with Nancy, a bit of snow on the ground.
6 PM


I finally got around to returning all of the returnable bottles and cans that have been accumulating since I stopped going to the office. I had two huge trash bags full, plus six 12-packs of cans. But since I started spending my time at home, I also switched to buying two-liter bottles, which represent a lot of volume but are still only worth a nickel. So I only got about ten bucks in refunds. (It's not about the money, of course.)

Friday Oct 30 #

8 AM


It's noad. Still is, actually. The roof is white, so are the deck and the lawn, but I don't expect that there will be enough to have to deal with.
5 PM

running (trails) 44:48 [3] 5.77 km (7:46 / km) +117m 7:03 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

WBNW, In The Dim. Rubber socks and spiky shoes and gloves and a headlamp that I never turned on because a bright moon was rising. I measured 4" of snow on my deck at one point, seems there was less than that by the time I was running, because it was landing on a warm surface. Under evergreens in some places it was bare ground. One fall, but the toe felt fine.

10 PM

pedaling (rollers) 27:25 [3]

Couldn't get up the motivation to go out in the cold dark wet, so I went for a ride on the Motobecane in the garage. I listened to some John Oliver, choosing something on YouTube that was 30 minutes long. It turned out to be a highlight reel that somebody had sloppily cobbled together, a bit unsatisfying. When it seemed to be playing end credits (I couldn't really see the screen on my phone), I tried to look at my watch and managed to fall off the side of the rollers, which I don't remember ever doing before. Fortunately, this turned out to be about as minor an incident as I imagined it would be.

Wednesday Oct 28 #

8 AM


Annual physical, not much to report, no noticeable change in height, although I believe I'm about 10 pounds lighter than at the previous physical. Got a flu shot while I was there, but the band-aid is about the same color as my skin. No "say ahhh" any more, my mask was on the entire time.
10 PM

hiking (pavement) 1:00:43 [1] 6.12 km (9:55 / km) +89m 9:15 / km
(injured) shoes: Oboz Sawtooth II

Neighborhood walk, In The Dark. Plenty of moonlight, though, so I only turned on my headlamp (which wasn't very well charged) on the two occasions when a car went by. Feeling a little off, maybe due to the flu shot, and the toe is still a little sore after enough walking.

Tuesday Oct 27 #

10 PM

hiking (mixed) 40:39 [1] 3.27 km (12:26 / km) +44m 11:40 / km
(injured) shoes: Oboz Sawtooth II

Across the street, In The Dark. I got out fairly late, after a successful session of amateur plumbing (replacing the kitchen faucet), by which point light rain had started. I wanted to see if I could follow the new mountain bike trail at night, which I could, but just barely, and I did lose it a couple of times. Maybe I know where the north end of it is now so that I can try it in the other direction at some point. Surprised on the way there, near the stone wall on the trail in from Gilchrest, by a very large lean-to. It looks like some tree snapped off and got hung up at an angle, and kids used that as the backbone and propped a bunch of other branches up against it. Wasn't there the last time I used that trail.

I also rode my mountain bike down to Seeley earlier in the day to pick up my car, but I can hardly count that, since it's mostly downhill.

Monday Oct 26 #

11 PM

hiking (pavement) 30:15 [1] 2.88 km (10:30 / km) +37m 9:53 / km
(injured) shoes: Oboz Sawtooth II

Back from Seeley, In The Dark. Rainy day, misty evening, good thing I don't have a streak or... oh, wait, yes I do. But mostly I needed to drop my car off for service. The kind of night when mostly what the headlamp shows you is a zillion water droplets. Toe still bothersome.

Sunday Oct 25 #

4 PM

hiking (trails) 1:20:38 [3] 6.28 km (12:50 / km) +30m 12:32 / km
(injured) shoes: Nike Initiator

On the Oakham/Rutland line (partially on the rail trail) with Nancy. Signs said "Closed To All Users". Men vi läser inte engelska.
