    It was all Nuttynu's fault! He posted his trip to Homer. I've wanted to get to Homer all summer. I wanted to camp on the spit but at this time of year his idea about Land's End was attractive, too. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to go. What a perfect end-of-the-season ride! But he was leaving on Wednesday and I couldn't go until Thursday afternoon. So what was stopping me. Absolutely nothing!

    So the weather... On Thursday it was variable. Not bad in Anchorage, windy and pouring rain in Girdwood, snowing like crazy in the Pass, and then raining on and off down the Peninsula ending with rain in Homer. There were even a few sunny spots. Today on the way home the weather was MUCH better. Pretty much good until Girdwood and then rain into Anchorage. Pleasant on the Peninsula and dry in the Pass. A nice surprise.

    Saw Nutty yesterday somewhere around Soldotna. It looked like the Alaska State Troopers were keeping an eye on him. Thanks, NN, for the great idea!

    Those who've ridden with me know that's not the case. There is a reason my avatar is a tortoise. Just ask NorthernBoxer. He'll be waiting beside the road somewhere for me to catch up.

    Now you have photographic evidence. The fall colors were just glorious, as well. No pictures though. Once I get rolling I don't stop until I get there or run out of gas. Which ever comes first.

    I spent the summer of 1977 on an island at the head of Kachemak Bay slowly digging holes in the ground with a mason's trowel. It was nice the whole time.
