2020 Cross Country District Championships – 10/31/2020

One of the more amazing things about 2020 is that the Cross Country season wasn’t ended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The meets have been very different this year. Most of the meets didn’t allow spectators. When they did allow spectators, we needed masks on. More surprising yet, almost everybody at the meets complied and … Continue reading “2020 Cross Country District Championships – 10/31/2020”

Lost Creek Road Cleanup – 10/24/2020

West of St. Louis near Warrenton Missouri is a road called Lost Creek Road . See the dot from the Google Map. Its a mostly gravel road that follows Lost Creek.

August – 2020

2020 hasn’t been a completely horrible year. Yeah, its not the same as other years, but we’re making due! Sonora is holding her two favorite cats, Brawndo and Coatrack. Jo Jo was able to come over and see Brawndo. Danelle managed both of them on her lap. I got more unicycle and paddling time during … Continue reading “August – 2020”
