I just did a bike hike along the Cannon Valley Trail. Here is the MotionBased trace of the ride. Thirty miles of biking. If I had gone all the way to Red Wing, would of been a 40 miler. I didn’t have it in me, a little out of shape for that. Plenty of scenery. Besides the thumb picture, I took this picture and this picture. Those images look inviting. I really want to take a canoe or kayak trip along the Cannon River now.
I had the septic tank pumped this morning. The guy pumping it had to dig for the tank cover. I was thinking he would be able to use the inspection hole, which was much easier to access. County code says that is not allowed. So he dug up my yard. He is going to raise the opening, and then put something resembling a manhole cover over it for easier access. It would of been just $200 for the basic pump job. With this extra work, $300 total.
Speaking of spending money, I spent some last evening. I purchased an mp3 player and a small 8 foot kayak. The kayak was only $200 at Gander Mountain. Should be perfect for paddling around my small pond. The mp3 player by Sandisk is the first portable mp3 player I have every owned. I bought the 2 GB variety. I am going to connect it to my car stereo via a cassette adapter. Those two purchases were another $300 plus.
I attempted to throw my first party at the new house on Sunday. A bit of a bust. Only 4 people from my family showed up. I’m just too far away, I guess. I have my doubts I will attempt another party. Just small gatherings. Thats about all I can handle. Partys are just too much for me to handle alone.
Finally, this YouTube video is really cool. It is a high speed video of a water balloon that doesn’t pop.
