15 miles before heading to the cabin where my running trail is no more…

So I thought I would check in and let you know that I’m still here.  It’s just that the kid is in town and we’ve been having so much fun I almost forgot about my little blog.  And then just when I decided to sit down and write a little post, bam, my internet took a crap again.  Thank you WOW cable and internet, you never cease to amaze me with the amount of mistakes you make and the crappy service you continue to almost provide.

Anywho, since we’ve got service for the time being, let me start by telling you about my awesome Saturday long run.

fifteen mile long run

Yep, I got my fifteen mile run done, albeit slow, it was still 15 miles and I did not get a migraine and I felt great afterwards.

The kid and his friend arrived around 1:15 in the afternoon and we hung out around the house because he was tired from driving for so many hours.  MacGyver and I went to get pizza and another of the kids friends came over so they all chilled on the lanai for a while.  It was a pretty low key evening because we had to get up early the next morning.

On Sunday at 5AM I woke everyone up and we hit the road.

We headed out to our cabin in Holopaw.  We didn’t bring our mud jeep this time because we were only going to be there for a few days and the guys weren’t interested in muddin all that much.  They had other plans.

In case I didn’t mention it, we have our own shooting range on our property.  MacGyver brought out a mini arsenal and they all wanted to shoot every single thing.

They set up tons of targets and the thing that launches the clay pigeons.  The kid is the master at skeet shooting.  For real.  He doesn’t miss.  Ever.  He loves it.  Unfortunately he also loved MacGyver’s Benelli and has informed me that’s what he would like for Christmas.  If anyone knows where I can get a Benelli super black eagle III on sale let me know.

While the guys were busy shooting, the dogs were busy napping.

I wish I could sleep through all that noise.  Silly dogs.

Instead, I was inside the cabin setting up dog town with new sheets.  For those of you who don’t know, our camp is actually called ‘Dog Town’.

dog sheets

Can you believe I found those dog sheets on clearance at Walmart after Christmas for only 7 bucks!  Score.  And bonus, they’re flannel.  Perfect for the cabin.  I also got a queen set for 11 bucks for our bed.

We did a bit of riding around while we were out there and we even did some Urban Exploration through some abandoned camps and I’ll post those photos tomorrow.  It was so much fun.  I could have done that for days.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to run on Monday morning because my running trail is grown over and since someone bought the lots around us, we have to reconfigure it anyways.

We got home around 9:30 last night and the guys must have been exhausted because I got up and ran 7 miles, walked the dogs and showered and they were all still sleeping.  Too bad because they missed this beautiful sky.

That’s it for me. I better get some work done while the internet is functioning.  Check back tomorrow, I promise you will love the pictures from our urban exploring adventures.

How was you’re weekend?
