Today I was very motivated. 15,283 steps (7.1 miles)

Now I'll share some pictures of what I seen today while I was out hiking near my home.




That was one very steep hill...

I'm bad.. most of my day is on the couch watching the TV and iPad.... I'm hooked on Instagram
hopefully this will change and I'll get outside getting my 10,000 steps in especially with this Fitbit keeping me honest

I do walk the Dalhousie everyday day and so I always carry a EDC kit that contains
a pocket knife, lip chap, notebook, pencil, pen, sharpie, tissue, lighter, flashlight, Advil, magnifying glass, a chewie bar, and some water purification tablets

I walked the Dalhousie around the block, then I took him home that was 3000 steps. Then out the door I went again to walk 7000 steps.
I bought myself a Fitbit and joined walking for fun where I can walk the Appalachian trail virtually. I'm going to really like that ...

Walking for fun ...

Appalachian trail. (Virtual)
I started walking today 8.3 km
( 5.1 miles)
These are my real sights as I walked around my home....

Well the Dalhouise is at home all tucked in - warm and cozy.... I feel so bad leaving him there but he can not go with me on all my excursions. I did take him out first for a slip and slide around the block though.

Poor guy has been limping badly all week and just now beginning to walk normal again..

The first of January 2017 and I had spent most of the day on the couch.. I couldn't let the New Year start off with being a couch potato all day...
















Did I mention that it was cold and windy - very windy. It was 0c (32f) without the windchill factored in..

Went out for a drive and found a place to do a little walkabout. We must come back here for a picnic -- it's beautiful



















Driving home it was nice to see





Those pictures might be good, but I'm really really BAD
. I we were hungry and had a craving...
Dalhouise enjoyed it too.. -- actually we received a free bag of popcorn chicken - Dalhouise loved those

No pond walk today, probably not tomorrow either as I need laser eye surgery in Vancouver.
It is very dark and gloomy with a slight sprinkle of rain here in Squamish today. It's a couch day.

It's not raining and I have no appointments to think about so I take the Dalhouise on a little walk around our neighbourhood pond.

What did I see? You ask!
Let me show you ...

















I can not walk fast because of my knee pain and Dalhouise age. So I get to slow down and just enjoy my moments and smell the forest or a flower or two







Dalhouise was being watched

First Monday off - time to walk around the pond before we go for a noontime swim then a doctor appointment. ( my blood pressure is perfect says the doctor... but what's with my heart?)
Well in the next coup,e of days I'll go to the hospital to get blood work and a chest X-ray - in the mean time he wants me to take baby aspirin once a day..
I went to the doctor for my two year annual check up and to have him refer me to a specialist about the pain in my left knee -- from car accident.

Well back to my morning rain walk with the Dalhouise..

Well the last group has left the camp. I'm finished- - almost. I have to feed twenty five staff tonight, then I'm off three days. Monday I must work until Wednesday feeding 10 staff and close down the kitchen.
Am I going back next year?.. I don't know, this has been my most difficult year ever and struggled with owner, director and the staff they hired to do dishes and front of house. Why do young people expect to go to work yet not work or complain about too many dishes to many pots, too hot, too cold, not enough breaks, - the list can go on and on. Yet Noni and I keep doing long days in all extreme temperatures and wrong numbers of guest given to me for menu cooking and ordering not to mention vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and picky eaters I must feed. So now I'm winning!
Well it's all over .. the next three working days will be easy and then.... we'll see

. This afternoon I took Noni to the lake for swim.

it was too cold for me to make the plunge today. Yesterday was perfect - hot, calm, and sunny - not today. Today was windy, overcast and a chill in the air.

On a positive note I found my sunglasses laying in the muck where I put the kayak in yesterday.

I went on a short hike, to Alice Lake Provincial Park earlier this month, I left Noni in the kitchen to serve our guess after I had prepared the meal. This me time was so needed.
I brought our little MSR camp stove to make tea and heat up some chili down by the river.
All in all I spent three hours just relaxing soaking up some sun and unwinding mentally.







The baby was left home too

The season keeps crawling forward.. I do have a good front of the house coordinator now but the dishwasher boys are driving us all crazy. There is hope of improvements- when is October?

I had two days off together with my wife and we left camp and went to our condo. Today is my mothers birthday so we celebrated it with her.
Yesterday we drove to Vancouver and watched Tarzan, I enjoyed it.
Here are a few pictures of our weekend..
mom is 80

family

Noni made this cake

BBQ











Well 165 hungry campers are arriving tomorrow for the next two weeks.. Back to the grind.

Spring contract is ending - phew I survived the most stressful season yet at camp for me -- Monday summer season begins - hopefully it is better... But first I must survive a BBQ Thursday for 175+ and another one on Friday for 350+ . There is a weekend off the last one Noni and I have together until --- whom knows when.....

I'm off three days - three days ... Yes YES
So far I am up early - laundry started - coffee made - cooked eggs for Noni and me. I wrote two postcards and I'm going to place my food order in for Tuesday delivery.. ( ok that is work - but once I do it I don't have to think about it again - do I ?)

Then the decisions of what to do on this long weekend -- hoping to go on a bike ride in Vancouver area some where..
- not too warm or sunny where I am right now...

Sunday was my turn to work - Noni was off... I was to have the whole day off on Saturday but I couldn't leave Noni all alone so I worked in the morning to help her out then I went to the Vancouver area... Sunday after lunch was finished I was off, so Noni and I went to Stanley Park to ride together.. Surprisingly what one can do with your free time if you actually get moving...

This was me doing some work on Sunday.
But first I had too begin cleaning the kitchen from the inactivity of the last six months


almost ready to go .. I now will get the toothbrush out and clean those hard to get places - I have a high standard when it comes to the safety and well being of the food and prepping areas - start off the season the best we possible can be because once the two hundred guess begin to arrive - the standard doesn't lessen - but the maintenance is harder to keep. We are a very primitive trailer kitchen yet we are cleaner than many restaurants I have worked in or have peaked in while visiting their establishments. Blame that on the fact I was a military chef and many years in hospital kitchens.

YES - I went and bought yet again another Handheld GPS. I have uploaded several caches.
Today - I'll go walk Dalhouise around our regular route to tire him out.. Then we will load the bikes onto the bike rack on the car drive 75km or so and go geocaching.
I must keep Noni happy so I'll limit my geocaching today.. There is an area she wanted to go back too that we rode two years ago - I can birdwatch, and geocache.
I'm so happy.... However this is my last week of freedom - work begins next Sunday...

So yesterday I took Noni up to the highlands where Dalhouise and I had hiked at the beginning of February. We did the same rout s without getting lost this time. What I noticed was it seemed so much shorter to reach the end point then when I did it the first time. Much more comfortable hiking in known territory then going into the unknown.

So these are our signs of Spring bursting upon our beings, and take note of the Dalhouise wallowing in a little creek bed..

This days was the first time this year that Noni came out riding with me. I'm sure it won't be the last, but our days are numbered for the freedom to just drop everything and go out to enjoy the sunshine and warmth. Camp season for me begins in about 15 days and 20 days for Noni. I really hope that this year I do get more opportunity and have energy to go out riding / walking / hiking more during the summer then I have had in the last few seasons. Still trying to figure out why my handheld GPS and computer won't work together - haven't geocache in so long now which makes me sad.

do you ever feel like your just an old rusty body of rusted pile of nuts and bolts?

Hiking at Brohm Lake - Cheakamus loop Trail, High Trail, Connector Trail, Bridge Trail and the Alder Trail -- 5 hours of ascents and descents - up and down - is there any place level in BC? I am in pain, the pooch is limping, the wife is sore--- I think we took on too much...

Was surprised it wasn't raining this morning- so out the door we went before Mother Nature could change her mind. Well we were lucky because as we returned to the car there was a light rain fall

Today I had a hard time to get started, but once I did it was well worth it. My heart took a pounding as we hiked / climbed up and then down.
