    What a shame about the MTB trails, Sheila. Mother Nature is a cruel force at times. Hope you can find another place to ride!

    That sounds perfect to me! But I know it wouldn't work for anyone intermediate or above in skills...

    Smart is good whether hiking or mountain biking!

    We did hike some yesterday, then off to the Indianapolis Zoo! Both activities were great, trying to get in as much hiking as I can before surgery 1.

    Very cool last week, for my vacation week we are in the 90s for the first time since 2015. Next week back into the 70s, I could have picked a better week for vacation!

    If my hip, knee, and shin splints feel better tomorrow morning I hope for some dirt trail time tomorrow morning, need to.get dust on my hiking boots!

    I am so looking forward to more serious hiking after my cycling trip.
    Of course, I will have extra DEET on, with the tics and yes, the mosquitos are horrible this year. Living by a small wetland area doesn't help.

    I'm taking off hiking later in the week... sort of. Be in Chicago for a conference and will hobble along for miles daily, but at least I'll be outside some and get to see the lake!

    I always enjoy the city, and still have my Art Institute membership so I'll spend some time at the Gauguin exhibit as well. It's doubly fun when my honeys work foots the bill for the room!

    You'd enjoy it Crankin, so much to do and the city is heaven in the summer.

    Nice little ~3 mile hike today with some friends, and a good lunch/dinner/whatever you call it at 3pm afterwards. Good times! Thankfully that part of Indiana wasn't really hit by the huge storm from the aftermath of Cindy so things were quite dry.

    Well, that didn't go as planned. Got to Chicago on Thursday and my right big toe was neon red and screamingly painful; ended up in urgent care on Friday morning, another MRSA infection from a tiny cut I probably gave myself trying to trim my toenails (I can't bend my right leg far enough to see what I'm doing very well). So lots of time in the hotel room with my foot propped up and eating antibiotics. Wheeeee! At least I had a gorgeous view, 26th floor overlooking the Magnificent Mile.

    So sorry Pax, as you said at least you had a great view. Definitely a bummer, hope you're starting to feel better! MRSA is scary!

    Thinking how cool to have a high tech, light, electric, foldable, comfortable, wheeled chair for easy moving through a city and buildings.

    A miraculous and quick recovery coming your way pax…….well, hoping anyway.


    also thinking confinement to a hotel room sounds yucky ....but then what's the outside humidity like in Chicago now?
    but then then room service ftw.....does the hotel have a spa and in room massages???????????????
