Coyote on ridge;
voice lifting to la Luna…
now coupled by pack.

 

One voice is music,
pack voices become assault.
Then quiet: peace again.

 

Been years since the pack
frequented our ridge. The ebb
and floe of nature.

 

Did pack sense inbound
heat or are they, too, happy
to be Americans?

Hi All,

Hot and sunny today. It's 85 right now, should reach 90, feels like 87, but they say the humidity is going down...yeah, right. Cat LOL

Tomorrow hopefully the only boomers will be the fireworks at night. It will be partly cloudy most of the 4th.

Enjoy this truly American holiday.

@LaDolceVita - People love to be on the water, or have a waterview, but it comes with a price! This is another creek off the Manasquan River; townhouses in the background:

@LaDolceVita

 

After the first 30 years of sleeping on mats, air mattresses and sleeping bags in tents.

 

I think the buses, motor homes and truck camper all pretty much spoiled the thought of sleeping upon boulders.

 

Despite how well placed the ground cover and tent, always at least 1 rock insisted being lodged in my back overnight.

 

Plus, I'm a little taller than most mats so, beds seem so, much nicer. Also taller than cots, tried that.

 

Give me a nice Sealy Posturepedic in the woods, smelling slightly like Irish Spring, keeps the rodents away - and I'm golden.😇

 

71* no rain and low humidity, might survive today. Time to trim the trees😎

ps - try camping again, next month will be annual take a kid (not 10 people) off to woods to explore wilderness and breathe air with no cellphone signal.

@Frozenoem  I love to camp, never minded about the lack of bed, but it has been a while.  Perhaps I would mind now?  

 

Your retro kind of camping sounds pretty good.  One could pretend to be a pioneer. 

 

@ASTRAEA  Great pictures.  Gives me some idea what the Jersey shore looks like.  Pictures from a local's viewpoint are closer to reality than a photographer's.

We ride possessed:
scant time, not a bit to waste
Trikes to be repaired.

 

But before that: ride!
Early start times due to heat
Home, hungry by 10.

 

Next weekend new trikes…
new frames and tune up, anyway.
First: one more hard ride.

 

Today’s hill training
was o’r hills like these, I swear
Legs sure route steeper.

@LaDolceVita

Maine camp camping, no electric, propane lights.

 

Not tent camping, like beds😇.More like 1910 vintage log cabin with running water, and outhouse.

 

Its camping yes, but more like RV camping kinda. Same appliances minus electricity.
