alas....


i seem to have less and less time to do the things i really want to be doing and more and more hobbies to fill the time i don't have... whoa is me right?!?! but i do indeed have too many hobbies...
i golf...
i have a need to shoot guns and plenty to shoot....
i love camping...
i enjoy backpacking, (figured out I've been doing that for twenty three/four years now)...
i like to ride my motorcycle/quad when ever possible...
i garden...
i really,really garden...
i enjoy reading, (although i am too ff-ing tired at the end of the day to even finish the book i started months ago, "the kite runner")...
tattoos? fuck I've got a huge piece on my back needs finishing...
i own a ski boat that hasn't seen water in years...
I've been to the mountains to snowboard and never even got around to it.
i enjoy traveling to other countries, meeting new people and killing them... err... that's not me, that's the army! whoops...

what ever shall i do?!?!


so, this weekend backpacking went really well. we didn't get to do any of the trails we initially planned on due to the fact that there was either a wall of water (due to rain) coming down the trail or the trail was simply not there (due to last years fire and this years rain, coupled with no trail maintenance, means NO TRAIL). but we had a wicked good time for four days and three nights out in the back country of Carmel valley by the river.... the best part? the hardest part of planning the trip? the food!!!

we ate so fucking good. so good...

bagels and cream cheese with lox in the mornings... hard boiled eggs, oatmeal and fresh coffee with whiskey... lunch? first day was sandwiches with cold deli meats, lettuce, tomato etc... all the fixins... every other day was rye triskuts, salami, wicked good cheeses, cliff bars, Gatorade, plenty of ganja, dried mangoes, salted almonds, apricots, etc...
dinners!!! oh fuck....
first night was apple sausage stuffed portobellas, steamed zucchinis, rice, garlic bread and several whiskeys... second night was tritip skewers with sweet onions and three different peppers, steamed veggies and more garlic bread. third night we had chicken breast slices mixed with rice pilaf, steamed broccoli, carrots etc.. another yummy loaf of garlic bread (all with home made garlic butter) we baked an elephant garlic but were all too stuffed to eat any of it save for a few bites and tequila with coffee for dessert....

oh yeah you wanna go camping?!?!?! hahahahahaa....

must go, work calleth me...

Sounds so lovely. I camped every summer with my grandmother and sisters. Maine, Nova Scotia, Montreal, etc. You name it, we did it. It's beatiful. All the best to you and Cheese. And honey, the food sounds amazing. It's all about the food!
