Boo

See You Next Year

Recommended Posts

With my holiday break from work set to begin tomorrow afternoon, I am going to be flying under the radar for a couple of weeks.  I'll be getting together with the family at Christmas, traditional stuff.  However, I like to use this time of the year to go off the grid for a bit.  Spend a lot of time in the mountains...hiking, camping, fly fishing, climbing.  Good times.  

 

I'm also taking a break from technology.  The whole unplug to recharge thing.  My girlfriend has convinced me that it is not feasible in this day-and-age to bury my cellphone in the backyard for the next couple of weeks.  However, I will be spending a very limited amount of time using computers, phones, and all the other technologies that keep us so preoccupied.

 

That means I won't be around here much for the next couple of weeks (hold your applause for the sake of my feelings please).

 

Before I head out to points unknown, I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Here's hoping Santa brings you the loot you desire and the New Year does right by you.

 

2018 has been a good ride here on the Train.  I will see y'all in 2019.

Enjoy your unplugged holidays.  We'll try to keep the toad from leaping into traffic.

Have fun! I always unplug when I go on vacation/holidays.

No computer - no phone; nothing! Don't even take those things with me and I have never missed anything important.

Thank you for the kind words and well wishes.  Hope you all had a good Christmas.

 

I had a good Christmas.  Kind of quite and low key, which I don't mind at all anymore.

That's not working out the way I had hoped.  Heavy rains with much more rain predicted to fall over the next few days means flooded creeks, falling trees, and landslides in the mountains.  Back in my younger days, I scoffed at people who stayed away from the mountains due to conditions like this.  Then I spent a night trapped on a high point in the Cohutta Wilderness due to all the trails being impassable.  That was when I realized it's a thin-line between brave and stupid.

 

Mother Nature has made it abundantly clear over the years that she doesn't give a tinker's damn about my vacation plans.

The mountains loss is our gain. Sorry it didn't go to plan but it's always nice to see your posts.

Cash is easy to shop for during the holidays.  He likes wrapping paper and empty boxes.  He would get the paper in his mouth and shake it around for a bit.  Then, for a change of pace, he would push empty boxes around with his head.

 

He has simple tastes and is easily amused.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
