Yesterday, the weather was nice. So we loaded up our bikes on the car and headed to the Big Creek Greenway.
Michelle and I rode our bikes for about an hour. Here’s the trail map.
The trail was crowded and it was a lot of fun.
Four years ago, I built my desktop computer. Now it was getting a bit long in the tooth, so I decided to upgrade some of its parts.
The computer’s now fast and powerful. My Harappa Ancestry Project analyses run much faster than before.
Ubuntu had no trouble running after the change. However, Windows XP refused to boot and I have to do a reinstall.
Fall is the best season to go camping and hiking. And I love the fall colors you can see in the mountains. So once again we headed to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park a couple of weeks ago for some camping, riding, hiking and driving.
We had three black bear sightings in the smokies this time.
Here’s the trail to Laurel Falls.
Here’s the trail to the observation tower at the top of Clingman’s Dome which gives a nice view around.
The hike from Clingman’s Dome to Andrews Bald was great and the views from a bald are always the best.
I thought I would never become a soccer dad. And so I never enrolled Michelle in any league sports.
But she liked one thing, then another and they accumulated until now I spend most evenings driving my seven year old around town for:
I am also helping her learn how to ride a bike. And competing against her on who does more nighttime reading.
It’s all fun as a parent and there’s also pride Michelle mastering different activities.
But it does reduce the time I can spend on things like the Harappa Ancestry Project. While the data submissions there have slowed down, I still have a number of ideas I am working on that I need to analyze and then post the results. When I can find the time of course!
