Fall beauty and the end of another season.

As the leaves fall and the fishing gets good, the kids have all gone home and the resort takes on a quiet, relaxed pace. Most visitors are couples or fishing groups that don't want anything more than to enjoy the quiet, wet a line and soak in the beauty of the fall colors.

This morning the trees glowed as the sun came up. I know I have seen that before but it never ceases to amaze me. As I finished up some e-mails and fooled around with a SLOW computer, I got ready for work. My boring, brain cell killing part-time job that thankfully will be over this month. I have let a lot of stuff slide at the resort and I am looking forward to getting back to it.

That is about it for today, as we say here at Virgin Timber Resort, stop and listen to the quiet...

Spring Training

At this point the winter is getting a little old up this way, I like it to get cold, stay cold and snow, snow, snow! This week was the dreaded spring thaw, the end to snowmobiling and an increase in stress at the Birkie office with just 10 days to get through until the big cross country ski race.

I signed up for a few races this week, trying to get a little motivation to run in this strange weather. I had to drive down my driveway to get to to the road to run, it was solid ice, but the road was good and I ran my regular 4 miler, it was only about 10 degrees and sunny.

The resort was quiet this weekend, we had two cabins full, some cross country skiers, and 2 ice fishermen. The fisherman I think mostly partied, did catch a few rock bass?? So the panfish were uncooperative.
Sunday is a chill day, stay in watch some of the Daytonna 500, there is a snowstorm coming so probably won't run until tomorrow.
