AWOL

Sorry for my silence. Today was a beautiful :) day here in beautiful New Jersey, and I spent the day canoeing 18 miles (9 upstream and 9 downstream) on the Delaware River north of Dingman's Ferry. (Hint: It helps to have a little electric motor on your canoe when you're going upstream. Still, the motor needs really healthy paddle assistance through the rapids, so we got our fair share of exercise).

By the way, if you don't know New Jersey well and think it's the pits, it's probably because you've only seen the state from the NJ Turnpike. Whoever laid out that road did NJ the worst PR job in history. It goes through the oil refineries (which stink to high heaven, though not as bad as they did 40 or 50 years ago) and the industrial areas. Actually, NJ has more acres of forest than Ohio, which is more than 5 times larger. For all its faults -- traffic jams, population density, taxes, etc. -- it is one of the more beautiful states in the country -- and I've been to all of them except Alaska.
