I'm looking forward to Foscue

Yesterday's decision to head south for a while before I head to New Mexico is agreeing with me. I'm looking forward to spending time at Foscue Creek Park again. Looking through my photos from last year reminded me how much I enjoyed my stay there last year.

Kentucky has by far the cheapest gas I've encountered so far

Now there's something I thought I'd never see again. Cheap gas. Today I headed west on Kentucky's Blue Grass Parkway and then took US 31E and US 231 south as far as Shelbyville TN. That took me through Kentucky's cheap gas country where I paid $1.789. Twice. Kentucky must be raising revenue by some means other than through gasoline taxation.

As My Breathing Evened Out

As my breathing evened out, I began to notice other sensations. The water felt different from any other water I'd ever swum in, as if it were more solid than fluid, as though I were swimming through a liquid Sno-Kone. [swimming in 33 degree water / 34 degree air]
