A very, very, very fine house

I’m sitting here a few days from a real fine trip to the Catskills with the Appalachian Mountain Club, which is its own source of excitement. Trip report to follow.

I’m also moving with my wife, Alison, to a new house in about a month. We’ve busied ourselves selling old furniture, rooting through storage closets and packing up our stuff. I love it when the U.S. government is going to pay me to buy a house.

Met with our interior designer yesterday morning, and you can believe there’s a future man cave planned with maps and all kinds of adventure décor. Think if Ansel Adams, John Muir, Benton MacKaye, Sir Edmund Hillary and others from the golden age of adventure huddled together to design a modern basement, what would it look like? That’s what I’m going for with our house.

Additionally, I have assignments to complete for a couple of publications. My MacBook buzzes with anticipation.

Posting here at Compass Points will be sporadic for a couple of weeks, but it will be back and better than ever. Some great trips and features planned for this blog. Here’s to hoping you can get out and enjoy splendid September and October weekends with an autumn sky above your head.
