fox sit

somebodies revealed

Some folks have been doing a bit of digging and somebodies has stepped out from behind the curtain. It's all here. While it's great to find out what's going on, personally I thought it was rather intriguing as a mystery. But I don't think it would have been a secret forever anyway. In any large group of people, someone's bound to know something.

In any case, anyone who can keep up with 500+ journals is amazing. Even with a fraction of that number in my friends list, I tend to fall way behind when I travel.

Speaking of traveling, I checked the Motel 6 rates for some Hampton Roads cities and got the following:
    Williamsburg - $30 per night
    Newport News - $40 per night
    Chesapeake   - $46 per night
    Norfolk      - $56 per night
The Chesapeake location is a good compromise. It's near the Greenbrier Mall and I-64 so it's actually pretty good. The Norfolk location is closer to the center of it all but the difference is only about 5 miles. Considering that I'm driving 450 miles to get there, 5 miles is nothing. Anyway, I'll think about this for a few days before making a reservation.

Non-rocky Mountain Way

Hamfest Special
Mountain Way Park in Parsippany. Nothing like an evening walk to pick up a new cache after work. I'm familiar with this park because that's where I hid George Washington's Stairmaster. Mine's on the other side of the road. Anyway, it's an easy walk as the trail isn't as steep on this side. The park looks a bit more well-used now too. Two years ago, I would go there and not see anyone. This evening, there were a bunch of joggers using the path along the road, and a number of mothers and children at the playground.

After that, I had fish tacos at Chevy's in Parsippany.
