Day 37 – Quick Update

A very quick update for you from the field today, friends. Our very last Cape trips of the summer wrapped up this morning in Boston. I had the privilege of being down there to say hi to a few families and to ride back with our leaders. Not only did I get to listen to all of the Top 40 they had been singing with their kids for the last couple of weeks, but I also got to hear some fantastic stories from their time on the Cape. Even after doing this trip three times this summer, each of our leaders continued to have a great time with their kids and with their trips.

Day 37 – Quiet Sunday?

A quietish Sunday across the Apogee Empire today — folks were touring Fenway park, walking the Charles River, spotting otters from kayaks in Mendocino, escaping from forest fires in the Cascades, and riding 110 miles across the Mojave. Pretty quiet, right?

Day 36 – Summer Stunner

Dear Reader, I don’t know about where you are, but it was a stunner up here in the beautiful Mid-Coast region of Maine. Seventy-odd degrees, gentle breeze, and sun shining down through a cloud-dappled sky. Ahh, Maine in the summer… Or Cape Cod in the summer — or the Northern Coast of California — or Washington’s Cascades — or, umm, the Mojave in the summer… All lovely spots on this 31st of July!

Day 35 – The Ball Still Rolls

The ball still rolls, friends. The ball still rolls. (Does that read with the air semi-detached melancholy I’m shooting for? I hope so.) As of this afternoon, we’ve said good-bye to another three trips — with only another six in the field before we are done for the summer. I know, I know, we’ve already gone on about how quickly all of this comes and goes in this little blog, but it’s just so shocking! If you told me that Leader Training was just wrapping up and we were getting ready for our first trips, I wouldn’t doubt you. A veritable blink of the eye, I tell you!
