Chicago Conference – 12/11/2022

I had a work trip to Chicago to attend the AGU 2022 conference. (Since this is about a work conference, you can tell this is Danelle posting and not Hogan!) AGU is the American Geophysical Union – a group that includes anyone who studies water, soil, rocks, air, or space. The event was attended by … Continue reading “Chicago Conference – 12/11/2022”

Sunset Race – 12/9/2022

It should come as no surprise by now that I like paddling. I also like just about any weather for paddling. For the December Sunset Race, I was the only participant. That wasn’t going to stop me from a wonderful night time paddle. I don’t often make it up to the 141 bridge anymore as … Continue reading “Sunset Race – 12/9/2022”

Emergency Repair On My Epic V7 – 2/4/2023

Since I’m planning to use my Epic V7 in the MR340 this year, I figured it was time to make sure it was up to the task. I’ll be making more updates and documenting them here. Today’s job was to put a more robust hatch cover on to help keep water out. I went to … Continue reading “Emergency Repair On My Epic V7 – 2/4/2023”

Thanksgiving In Wisconsin – 11/23/2022

We left early on Wednesday 11/23 headed up north. Danelle and I decided that we would rent an Airbnb for a few nights.  It probably would have been cheaper to fly Corvin home for a few days, but then the kids would all want to go hang out with their friends. This would make them … Continue reading “Thanksgiving In Wisconsin – 11/23/2022”

Joe Borrows A Unicycle – 11/19/2022

My friend and national speaker, Joe Fingerhut called me to ask a favor. His unicycle had a broken part and its a part of several of his speaking engagements. He asked if I might have a part he can borrow. Rather then try to grab a part, I suggested he come over and just borrow … Continue reading “Joe Borrows A Unicycle – 11/19/2022”

Youth Orchestra – 11/13/2022

We picked up tickets for the St. Louis Symphony’s youth orchestra. Sonora loves to go and its a great excuse to get out. Laura met us at The Fountain on Locust for lunch. The food menu is just meh, but that isn’t what they are known for. They have a HUGE collection of ice cream … Continue reading “Youth Orchestra – 11/13/2022”

Grease – 11/12/2023

Coty finished softball season and went straight into practice for the school musical, Grease. She landed the role of an extra, but it was a lot of work. She played several different roles and had to do several dance numbers! See her below with a mustache dancing with the guys. Being an extra doesn’t mean … Continue reading “Grease – 11/12/2023”

Sunset Race – 11/11/2023

Another amazing Sunset Race is in the books.We had warm weather that made it easy to paddle. You’re looking at a very bright moon and Blake paddling. Looking at the back of the boat, I’m trying to keep us straight. What a perfect way to spend the evening. Come visit us on the second Thursday … Continue reading “Sunset Race – 11/11/2023”
