Sky of AQI 190

Labor day day trip to Mt. Rainier – cannot believe things changed dramatically from this day with all the wildfires and smokes flowing in the area. – All the major roads we drove to get here and back to home was on fire at day after (SR 410, I-5, SR 167)

Bent my wallet for anniversary ‘Corona To-Go’ dinner for the family at early in the month – This plate made me realize good sushi is made with a bit of aging and wasabi-on-the-rice πŸ™‚ which I came to forget with ‘regular’ sushi in streets..



Poo Poo Point via Chirico Trail


Lazy Sunday hike to Poo Poo Point using Chirico Trail – where all paragliding seems to be landing.. πŸ™‚

Steep rocky hills but fun hike to watch people flying all around the mountain..

So pumped to taste this back! πŸ™‚ This was one thing I have looked around to get the taste again since 2005 as I have an emotional tie ofΒ  this with “Lonely dorm life in hot (in Summer) and cold (in Winter) days at Ames, Iowa from 1997 to 1998”

Anyhow, this soda was reintroduced after some hardcore fan’s movement aka “Surge Movement” and Coca Cola made it available from Amazon about 5 years ago…and finally.. I made a bold order recently and this just arrived at the day Red flag/Heat advisory went effective.

Still refreshing! (and my brain memory of ‘more citrus and less sugar than Mt. Dew” seems about right πŸ™‚

Thank you Coca Cola!
