I'm Back.

Let's see if I remember how to do a post. ...

It's been a long while since I've posted here. Lots of stuff happening but I'll spare you most of it (for now). I'll especially spare you any politics for as long as I can hold my tongue.

Terry and I have been busy doing our usual stuff. Mostly she's been traveling for various sewing classes and conventions while I've been hanging around the neighborhood. Some hunting last fall (I got a nice 8-point buck on opening day), some birding (still seeing the usual winter birds with only a few of the summer/migrants arriving), some gardening (rebuilding a raised bed that was starting to rot away), and a few short trips together into NJ for family stuff (Christmas, birthdays, etc.).

One major change that just took place was the trading of our 2007 Toyota Tundra for a 2017 Tundra. The "old" truck had 177,400 miles on the odometer and had see several trips up to Clova, Quebec for fishing; several trips with and without the trailer across country to the Pacific Coast; to Florida (no trailer); to Nova Scotia (with) and even to Alaska (again, with the trailer). We'll break the new one in easy like with a trip to Oregon in June without the trailer in tow and then to Clova (again trailerless) in July.

2007 Tundra has been a good workhorse.

2017 Tundra has yet to be tested but holds great promise.

Are you going to get a Camper for the new truck?

I've still got the travel traler and the bed has a tonneau cover (hard) on it. No plan to get a cap like the green one.
