I think I'm ready to hit the road tomorrow. So today the plan is to do as little as possible which is not a big reach from my usual routine.

The weather forecast for the next 10 days at my next camp is a very boring 85° high and a 59° low for almost every day. The morning lows here have been in the lower 50s with the forecast lows next week to be in the upper 40s. So I'm getting out at the right time.
I could not find a book promo for this book that was first published in 1923. Amazon has a reproduction that was digitized by Google but they do not say anything about the book. The Google digitized version that I downloaded for free is rather poor so buyers beware at Amazon where they want $21.75 for the paperback. It is a compilation of short columns that the author wrote for various media of the day. It is very entertaining and as I said before it is just chock full of great quotes. Recommended, but get the free download.

So there is no longer a Nord Stream 2, or a Nord Stream 1, but Biden now refuses to take credit for their destruction. I think by early 2023 president Biden is going to be hated by more Germans than will be president Putin. President Putin has been saying over and over again that Russia is more than willing to sell gas to Europe but now president Biden has made good on one of his promises.
If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the – the border of Ukraine again, then there will be – there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2… We will – I promise you – we will be able to do it. — President Joe Biden during a joint press conference with Chancellor of Germany H.E.
