Good Night!

I just woke up from a solid 8 1/2 hours of deep sleep after 9 hours of slowly grinding around My  Mountain.

In 2 hours, I'll be checking out my tractor in preparation of doin' it all over again.

My Boss didn't trusty ol' BR350 is running like a Ferarri! In 9 hours, never once did I use max RPM or max Track Speed. Her performance belies the 9000+ hours on her clock.

All things considered, conditions were great...yes, there was more geology lurking below the thin coating of manmade snow than I'd prefer, but that's the hand we've been dealt.

I saw a great sunrise from the Top of The World, and tonight I've got a shot at seeing a pass by Phobos/Grunt, seeing that the moon is in it's last quarter. Monday morning brings a more optimum opportunity at 0615.


  1. I saw the quote over on the side column about "condemed to repeat", that's pretty dang grim. However, I just wrote that quote down the other day. What does that say?

    Ahh, decomposing granite. Gotta love it!

  2. Do we really know our history? Well, it seems as if I never remembered mine. So, spurred on by this gun toting public of ours, I have started to research the Constitution of the United States.

    Even at the dawn of my research I have discovered that I don't know what events led up to its creation. I'm already shamed.

    Who was Robert Morris anyway? Someone with some pretty damn big pockets. More later on.
