Yes, I'm back. Actually, I got back late Saturday night. But between unloading the trucks, unpacking, doing laundry, cleaning various gear, picking up Duncan (and dealing with the subsequent hyperactive reunion), and catching up on sleep, I'm finally getting around to updating the blog. Overall . . . ()

Not that any of you will really notice, since I haven't been very active on here for a while. But, I shall be absent from the blogging world for a little while. In the morning, I shall begin the long and arduous journey across multiples states heading towards the land of deer & elk. Talk to y'all . . . ()

Here's a little story that kinda sums up how things go for me much of the time. I have this shirt. Well, actually, I have many shirts. But only one in particular is relevant to this story. It's a dress shirt, whose color I'm not entirely sure how to describe. It's not quite a plumb, not quite a . . . ()

Our final full day was a in many ways a bust, but in others not bad. Our original plan was to detour far into Germany and visit a particular town (the name of which escapes me currently) in order to see a museum dedicated to Medieval Crime & Punishment before heading up to Frankfurt for the night & . . .

Okay, I'm feeling a touch better today . . . good news was that it's not bronchitis. Bad news is that both ears are infected & my sinuses are severely infected. But, drugs are doing their job. So, back to the story. Our last full day in France, we decided to make it a "Dumbach-la-Ville Day". . . . ()

The following day, we opted to head a ways into Germany and see the Black Forest. As I've been told, the reason it's called the Black Forest is that beginning in the days of the Roman Empire and for many centuries afterwards, the forest was considered completely impassable due to thick foliage.

So, the after getting fairly well drunk with the cousins the evening before, we set out the following morning to tour the Route du Vin (Wine Road). One of the advantages of drinking a bit too much good wine is that it doesn't leave a hangover. Our journey first brought us to Haut Koeningsbourg, . . . ()

The next day was much better. After experiencing the excruciating pain of Strassbourg behind the wheel, we spent the morning wandering around the area on foot. This was a much more pleasant experience. Especially the Strassbourg Cathedral. Now, I've seen various cathedrals in the eastern US, as . . . ()

Sorry for the delay. Things have been busy. But, now I've got a chance to recap. My folks spent about 2 weeks in Italy, then my brother & I flew over to join them in Frankfurt (that's Germany, btw). Honestly, the trip did not start out well. We left San Francisco at around 2:00 pm for the 10 . . . ()

I'm back from my trek in France. Am also extremely tired. So, you'll have to wait a bit to hear the details. But they will come. Overall, trip was good. Right now, I need sleep.
