The Buckeye Trail Fest is the annual meeting and celebration of the Blue Blazed Trail that winds around the state of Ohio. There are hikes, bird watching, work shops, talks scheduled for attendees. It is a very nice schedule of events, I have had to choose between favorites that are happening at the same time! A nice problem to have!
I’ve Lost My Voice!
The high tree pollen count has smote me. It started on Tuesday, at work, my voice getting huskier and huskier as the day went on. Wednesday, I had practically no voice at all, just a soft rasp. Great! I’m going to Buckeye Trail Fest to meet and talk to new people! Talking being the key word here!
Today, the voice is a bit better. I am hoping the tree pollen in Yellow Springs will be a bit more advanced than my home area, and my allergies clear up a bit. I’m prepared to bring sharpie pen and notebook and write big notes to people if needed!
What I Hope to Accomplish at Trail Fest
I want to hike in some new areas to me. I want to attend some work shops in order to learn more about the Buckeye Trail, camping, photography. I want to get some good ideas for future writings from other hikers, such as “what has been the biggest mistake you’ve made hiking” “best piece of gear” “best advice” “favorite section of the Buckeye Trail” so you may see whip out my little notebook when we’re talking-if I have a voice!
I plan on writing a Trail Fest Report next week, stay tuned for that!
Are you attending Buckeye Trail Fest? Come on over to Yellow Springs!
It’s World Malbec Day! Fill a glass of lovely Argentinian wine and celebrate!
Malbec is one of our favorite varietal. It’s a strong red wine mainly produced in the Mendoza region of Argentina. The Malbec grape is from France, where it was used more as a blending grape in a Bordeaux wine. It found a great home in the higher altitudes of Argentina.
We have found great bottles of Malbec Wine under twenty AND under ten dollars. Hit your wine store on the way home to take the Moan out of Monday and celebrate World Malbec Day today!
