Where I have been? A couch potato... that where.
Sorry to say that for the month of November I rarely got over 3000 steps a day. There was a couple of exceptions but not many.
December hasnít been much better yet either..
Today I did get off the couch, not a lot of steps, 6876 so far, but I did get off the couch.









Letís hope this is the beginning of me getting off the couch

Well since Camp ended I have barely got any steps in. I took the car to the garage today, walked home and enjoyed a hike near the golf course
I must really force myself to walk... Dalhousie used to force me, now all he wants is a walk to the bottom of the third floor Condo to the grass area at the entrance.

Monday we took him out

Today sights...

Appalachian Trail virtually hiking
Done: 1,617.0 miles
To-Do: 585.0 miles

Summer is over... this has been a long hot stressful summer at that. Long hours, working with complete idiots and becoming sick for the last two weeks with a flue, not to mention knee pain.

I'm off for five or six days now. Was semi planning a road trip. But this didn't happen as we are just so exhausted and engery less. Sixty days left before the new fall season ends and I'm off either permanently from camp or six months if we go back next spring. The next 60 days I only see three or four off days on the calander .. remember my relief cook quit and the owner said he was not replacing her... I have to work because he was / is angry with me. I see some issues arising because I'm not sure if I'm willing to push through this. In the past I have, but motivation and "love" for my job is no longer there.
Let's see how I feel after this rest.

My steps have been cut down because of knee pain, I wonder if I'll finish my virtual walk of the Appalachian Tail before the end of camp?





I miss walking with him so much. These days he doesn't walk anywhere, outside for a quick business happening and then back inside... and I must add some days he doesn't make it outside in time. Old age is claiming him rapidly now...

bear horn at the ready

amazing views

the picture does not do justice to the steepness of this hike







she found it



then we came back down to the lake level

So before I could leave.. the Camp owner phone me, the relief cook didn't show up. Chaos but they managed to get breakfast served with some phone instructions from me. I then returned to Camp and cooked and served supper and prepared the supper, gave clear concise instructions on how to heat and serve it. Then at 1 in the dead heat of this gorgeous day my friend and I hiked and geocache.

I'm at 90 floors elevation and just over 20,000 steps in for my day of rest...

. Dalhousie enjoys his behind the cabin times with me

June 8, 2017
Activity: 20,205 steps (9.4 miles)

It's been a crazy week... last Thursday I visited Mom.. found out she was back in hospital... nurses informed Noni and i that she was declining and I should talk to her doctor. Talking more with the nurses they felt she would not last very long at all.. later that night the doctor phoned me.. he thinks two or three months ... maybe longer..
so every night we been going to visit her after work.
She seems to be improving...
work has been stressful as well... yesterday we fed 240 campers... every other day it was 121 hungry mouths. Also I suspect my relief cook to be stealing food ... I talked to the owner ...
we won't mention the stressful relationship I have with the kitchen coordinator...

. Seen while driving home from a visit with Mom

. I have been having little camp fires behind our cabin to release stress.

we bought a lawn chair.. our swing was broken over the winter.. thenowner says he will replace it.. in the mean time I can't wait I want to relax outside on my afternoon coffee break

So it's Saturday, not raining so far, and I'm off.

I'm torn between taking it easy and rest .. many steps were taken this last week... or push for a new record.
I officially start feeding 25 staff + Sunday supper.

This darn Fitbit...

Sundays are normally difficult days for me to get my ten thousand steps in.. Today I really didn't believe it would happen. This morning we skipped church, I was just feeling unmotivated to move. Around lunch time I decided I had to take the Dalhouise outside... even he hadn't asked to go out today thus far.
Once we walked around the block, I came back and began to collect and organize our camp supplies and load the car. Many steps began to add up as I did that. Then a trip to the grocery store to buy food for camp.. more steps.
The car was full - very full. So Noni and I drove to camp to unload.. Lots of steps doing that.
Since it was not dark and kind of nice outside -- we went for a little walk and a steep hill climb to get more steps in and floors recorded on my Fitbit.

Tomorrow we move to Camp and begin our six month contract.
I expect 15,000 to 20,000 steps per day just by working in the kitchen everyday my 8 to 10 hours ... but what will be hard is getting floors in as Camp has no stairs for me to climb.

I wonder how Fitbit will record my cycling ?

Noni and Dalhousie and I went downtown to our local Farmers Market that opened today for the season. Took a stroll along the marina then visited Mom. Returned home and only had 5000 steps. I figured it would be much more.. but since it wasn't I went out the door.. well now I'm over 20,000 steps .. I'm sore but happy.

Dalhousie I agree is probably healthy and strong because of the exercise and life at camp -- but these are no match for Old Age. He is like his human... more now then before.. I am loosing my hearing... below normal now was the result of the test I had done last November. I have been blind in one eye ( almost blind very limited) since I was about five or six years old. And I certainly have old age aches and pains that working with youth can't prevent..

Today is Friday... two more days.. Monday we are back to work...
It is going to be rough getting back into the routine and the body is going to revolt at this pain cause by work. Six month vacation is wonderful until you have to return.

This week has been a low mileage one. I must remember I'm not in a race and don't fret weather I get few or many steps in

The circle is complete -- Squamish to Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons, to Powell River, to Lund, to Vancouver Island-- to Comox, to Gold River, to Campbell River, to Port Hardy to Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay to Squamish (home) over 1300 km (807 miles) driven from Monday to Saturday ... not counting the three Ferries, and I still managed to get over 84968 steps in. I even broke my record with 81 floors the one day.
What a Road Trip it was..









stopped here and spent money

Fitbit registering flights of floors

yes I spent some evenings on the treadmill

waiting to go for a walk

exploration at the Fish Hatchery

exploring a Super sized Walmart


I do believe this was the record breaking day (81) floors

Elk Falls





play time

The car was taken to the garage last night, it was to be there all day today for work on the transmission hoses and a rear end seal. I was told it wouldn't be ready until late today. Well this morning around ten they phoned me and said it was ready. So off I walked to pick it up in sunshine, after I walked Dalhousie around the bloc first.
Returned home and suggested to Noni we go back up the gondola while it was sunny.
Well our intention was good, but it clouded over as we drove there. Going up the mountain, rain began to fall. Well it sprinkled some, cleared, clouded, sprinkled again... maybe we'll have better weather next time. Regardless we had a good hike and some excellent views.

























Meanwhile at home sitting in my spot.. that rascal Dalhousie waits


that is the guilty look

After the Provincial Park walk - we took the Dalhousie home and Noni and I went up the Sea to Sky Gondola. It will be our first time in two years. First time we ever bought a pass... this year the company changed passes from seasonal to annually. I'm also counting on more time off of camp this year. The promise of a relief cook for weekends... so I hope to use this pass much more.

















It's going to be awesome ones the clouds roll away

373.4 miles walked since I bought my Fitbit on January 12th

This morning I sat on the couch - sat and sat waiting for the rain to fall. At lunch it remained just overcast so I decided to go for a walk seeking some birds. Knee is sore so I figured I would go easy and slow, however I wanted to reach my 10,000 step goal .. when I finally hobbled home, I was surprised at how far I had walked. But I'm extremely pleased with the birds I seen.
I couldn't photograph a blue heron nor the woodpecker nor the raven, but I did see ones I never or rarely see here in Squamish.
Enjoy.....


American Dipper

Ring Neck Duck

. Trumpeter Swan



Buffleheads

. Wood Duck

Mallard Duck



Robin

.... hoping I don't meet one today
