Hermits, Goats, And Pie For Breakfast.

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

It is great to see that Herb Thiel from Haps With Herb resumed blogging. He stated he was in a slump/funk, and those are never nifty. If you get the opportunity, drop by and send him a little encouragement would you?

For me, today was a day of Church, eating, and more Church. Then a little more eating was involved.

See, today is a cheat day and I will not not be seeing carbohydrates in this magnitude for a while.

Don’t judge, I am losing weight every other day… ok?

There is reason in the carb load as tomorrow is an exciting day for me that will require a lot of calories. I will attempt a hike with D.B. Achen, a friend of mine. This man is as old as the hills and has invited me to his corner of the forest.

Lets be real, I wont call him old to his face. This man has outwalked everyone I know to include a special teams Sergeant I work with, and he is in excellent condition.

No one wants to hike with D.B. Achen. He has a quick gait and is as nimble as a mountain goat.

I met D.B. Achen in Fremont County, Colorado, and have worked with him on numerous occasions. He is a hermit that comes to work and escapes to the mountains as soon as the shift is over.

Perhaps I will learn a thing or two. I will be as ready as I can be.

Wish me well, and I will give you an update!

    Thanks for the shout-out! I think you’ll learn something from the old mountain goat.

    I also had a huge cheat day today, but not for such a good reason haha. My reason was seeing a fancy vanilla milk shake thing that came with a doughnut on top.
