Well folks, the title says it all.
More than six months ago I gave myself the goal of getting this blog going, writing some interesting stuff and, hopefully, getting recognized. Then, things at work got all shook up, the Pinedale Roundup and Sublette Examiner (the two Sublette County newspapers) merged, and I found myself inundated with work and trying to readjust my entire work schedule.
We finally got things organized here around May, kind of, anyway, and then BAM! summer began in Sublette County and I spent most of my time trying to get my work done so I could get out into the wilderness and have some fun (if you’ve ever lived in Wyoming, or any place where winter is longer than spring, summer and fall combined, then you’ll know how important it is to soak up the warm weather and explore as much as you can before the snow begins to fall, again).
I’m sure that since this post and my last, I’ve lost a lot of followers, but that’s OK, not that fall is coming and the cold weather has begun creeping in, I should have much more time to let anyone who is interested know what’s been going on with me.
Let’s have a quick recap that will hopefully be followed by much more regular posts.
Insanity ensues as I go from working for one weekly newspaper to two.
Spring arrives and the gang and I take that first camping trip of the season to New Fork Lake on Memorial Day.
We head up to Blueberry Lake out of the Boulder Lake Trailhead to celebrate Cody and Amber’s birthdays. I swim across the lake, about a mile total, in the buff to officially welcome the summer.
I head up to Triangle Lake, one of the county’s most unvisited areas and one of the most difficult hikes I’ve done since the American Legion Peak extravaganza.
Hunting season begins, and my first day out in the Wyoming Range is unsuccessful, even though I did get to hear an elk bugle, a first for me.
And here we are. Sorry for the lack of activity, hopefully I get my ass in gear.
