Wow...105 degrees today...

So, now it's hot! And mornings and evenings are just awesome here in Ojo Caliente de los Palomas, Nuevo Mexico. I'm not real excited about the idea of a hot mineral bath right now but that will come later. It will feel very good when it cools a bit...

So lately, since it is pretty hard to be outside in the blazing sun during the day... I go out and do an hour or half hour of outside stuff, come in and watch the Olympics for a while, go back out and phart around some more and come back in and cool off.

In the last few days I have been experimenting a bit with alcohol stoves and making some buddy heaters, etc. I have also been messing around with my bicycle to convert it from a mountain bike to more of an around town cruiser so I use it more often....need some cable sheath before that comes together but I think it will be good for me and Dina to get a little more exercise...

I just learned how to use the Calibre program so I can download a larger variety of e-books to my computer and convert them into epub for my Nook e-reader. That will really expand my foraging for good books.

Kit is off in the high mountains of Colorado on a several day moto trip. She is visiting the places where her roots on her mother's side run pretty deep. Leadville, Cripple Creek etc.

That's about it...more as it happens, it is just happening slowly..LOL

Good travels,
