D minus 7 and counting

Took the Scouts out to camp yesterday. The heat smote one like a hammer on the anvil of the humidity. Welcome to July in Indiana.

Camp was lovely. Looked like a good staff, too. And the quality of chow for supper was much improved over previous years. We have a likely group of lads in camp. I kinda wish I could be there this week, but I have a lot to do here, especially in getting ready for Philmont. Starting with, I've got to count all my pills today to make sure I have enough to get through another week, and then a three-week trip.

Weighed 226 this morning. Down half a pound from last week, basically holding steady. Just got to make it through another week and a half. Once I get weighed in and start on the trail, controlling my weight will not be a problem.

Well, better get after it. Only SEVEN days till we leave for Philmont.
