Dan's Day

[Bill jumping off rope swing] Hiking this morning involved heading north from the Bolinas Bird Observatory towards Alamere Falls, but about two miles short of the trail to the falls there's this lake that Terrence wanted to jump in before he moved to Massachusetts. So we spent a while feeling like we were 12 years old again, jumping off the rope swing into the water. It's been a while since I've had a second or two of free-fall, and I'd just gotten to the point where I was ready to figure out what to do with it when we decided it was time to head back.

When Charlene got home from work, I went hiking with her, up near Roy's Redwoods, where the afternoon sun cast this cool shadow on the tree.

Then we got home, and got Charlene's Burning Man project to a working stage! I don't think she's ready yet to reveal it to the world, and we've got some bugs and glitches to work out, but I think it's going to be really really cool. An all around good day.

Why do you have to be twelve to enjoy a rope swing? It's one of the greatest pleasures of life. Even better, try it at night when you can't see the surface of the water when you let go!

Great hikes. I was in North Carolina on Grandfather Mountain with 150 VW Bus owners. Only got out for one hike - more of a bushwhack, but it was fun nonetheless. Pictures forthcoming...

I don't have to be twelve to do it, I just feel like I'm twelve when I do. Done the at night thing. Up on one of those flooded valleys of Parksville Lake. I think we'd gone out there to give someone midnight kayak rolling lessons ("I'd love to paddle with you tomorrow, but I don't have a roll...", oh for the days when my peers' bodies could be so cavalier about class IV water...), and I'm sure you can project a mental state back on to the processes that decided that midnight kayak rolling lessons were a good idea.
