Then we drive to Pennyworth Lock and start our hike. The bulk of our experience is detailed at that other link. I'd intended to write up a food diary of the hike as well-- even kept notes in my little red notebook, about what we ate and under what circumstances-- but when I got home I found those notes interested me very little. First of all, how much can you write about trail mix and crackers? Secondly, and more important, I was ready to end the daily food diary. It has been an interesting experiment and writing exercise, but is immensely time-consuming and requires an attention to minutiae that eventually becomes wearying. I also feel that the world now knows enough about exactly what I eat on a daily basis. (I would still like to know more about what OTHERS eat on a daily basis. But we'll save that for another post.)
I reserve the right to continue writing about things I eat... just not everything, not right now. Ironically, I have had less time lately to cook, due in part to all the incessant chronicling. Also, less time to walk, and less time to write my murder mystery. All things that are important. Perhaps as important as eating.
Nevertheless, stay tuned, I shall continue to afflict you with this and that.
