This is a continuation of a blog that was part of the University of Alaska walking program. Now it includes other activities in addition to exercise such as motorcycle rides on my '83 BMW R100RT/Cozy and 2012 Ural Patrol Sidecar rigs.
Happily, the roads are passable again. Only a couple of days of misery before the temperature dropped nicely below freezing. There doesn't seem to be too much ice on the road after this last warm spell maybe because we had some bright sunshine yesterday afternoon to evaporate a lot of the liquid water. We are now officially over six hours of sun being actually above the horizon. Barrow's first sunrise this year was four days ago and they are already over two hours of sunshine. Change comes quickly.
It was a beautiful morning for a ride and I had just a couple of errands to run. When going by the University, I noticed a fire on the horizon. It looks like a building in University Park somewhere. Never a good thing to happen especially in the middle of winter.
My new green for a while and I must admit that it tastes really good. Fresh kale, apple, celery and lemon. Plus I get to play with a new appliance in the kitchen. After years of never feeling very well especially after eating. And I'm partially convinced that maybe improving my diet may help. I am already pretty light on carbs due to my type 2 diabetes and the shift now is to dramatically reduce protein and increase vegetables. We'll see how this goes, I'm really looking forward to it...
