What's up my friends? Put up your stuff.
QOTD? Will you be traveling or hosting travelers at Thanksgiving?
GBT is moving away from Antarctica a day early.
. Heavy ice and some significant storms in the Drake Passage altered our plans. We departed a day early. Can't I just stay at one of those outpost and count penguins and seals? We had a very early morning landing on Deception Island. It was a major whaling base 100 years ago. Some fascinating ruins left behind. A neat artifact is the remains of a tractor used by Sir Edmond Hilary to travel to the South Pole. I marvel at what these men did.
So we are headed back to South America. Hopefully back on land Thursday. They say it will take the extra day in the storms. Doc is handing out motion sickness pills this morning.
QOTD: I think we will only travel across town to my Aunt Shirley at Thanksgiving.

You are giving me a geography lesson! I need to look up these places you are talking about.
Safe travels to all.
QOTD -- hosting. I need to buy the turkey.

Safe travels Tom. Thank you for the update!
QOTD- We are hosting. But just Amy and my sister. Not much planning required for so small a group. I should think about getting a turkey I suppose.
Smooth travels home yesterday. Came thru Chicago during the Bear game 4th quarter so we stopped in a little sports bar in the suburbs for an appetizer as the game wrapped up. We cruised some car lots and were home by supper time.
Now I have to get back to better eating and more regular workouts. Good Monday to all of you!!
They may ask you to stop back in that sports bar. You brought the Bears good luck.
I went to the gym at lunch to do the ARC trainer but my knee hurt too much so I limped from machine to machine for a weight workout. Finished up with 10 minutes on the recumbent bike. That was just to see if that would hurt my knee and it didn't so maybe I'll stick to that for a while. At this point I don't know if I'll ever run again.
You will run again. Maybe not as fast or as far or as often but you will run. ARCs and bikes at the gym just won't satisfy you. That knee may take a while, but it will eventually strengthen. Perhaps some PT or a good trainer. But you will run.
Jen sent me a message to say that Rob's dad passed yesterday. Please say a prayer for Rob and Sam as they say goodbye.
Rob, if you see this, your dad lives on not just in your memories, but in you and your kids. Be well.
Oh Dawn, thanks for letting us know. I am so sorry to read this post.
So sorry to hear this. But thank you for sharing that.
Went to the gym and did my workout. It is cold for us Texans -- 45 degrees and the temps are dropping.
Have a meeting this evening and I really hate to get out when it's cold.
Enjoy your day.
Sending Rob and family comforting thoughts and prayers.
