May 2011

It’s been an expensive and disastrous month.On the plus side we did get to go hiking (twice), and backpacking for three days. Bringing the yearly totals up to 54 and 51 miles respectively. So far this year we’ve spent 12 nights out camping.

On the negative side, I’ve finished year one of my EFM course and I’m going to miss it. Then there was the accident with my hand: painful and very costly. The cats managed to break my camera, which (hindsight tells me) will cost more to replace than my medical bills, and the camera will subsequently be repaired for just $15.
