I’m leaving first thing tomorrow morning on a road trip to the Adirondacks. I’ve got a 300 mile drive. The weather won’t be great – it’ll be raining, but that’s better than snow in the mountains. Despite the lack of sun, I’m looking forward to the trip. My best friend, who I met at UNH when we were both working towards a BS in Animal Science, lives in the southern end of the Adirondacks. I’ll get to spend the night at her home. Melissa lives in a house that she built herself (really built, as in did the hard work with hammers and power tools, etc). I can’t wait to put my feet up and have a long conversation.
The next day, I’ll be giving a talk at The Wild Center. Check out their web site. I love nature centers. And nature centers with otters? The best! I’ve never been that far north in New York State, but I’ve heard it’s one of those places that gets into people’s hearts.
On the way home, I’ll be stopping here. Good thing I won’t have a chicken in the car with me. I’ve been to the King Arthur store before, and I always tend to get carried away. Without the chicken crate, I’ll have room for all of those interesting flours, and five types of chocolate chips! I have the $10 from this week’s egg sales in my wallet. I’m thinking I’ll use it to splurge on baked goods at the King Arthur cafe. Then again, I might find something on my drive tomorrow. You never know with a road trip.
