A big breakfast today - pancakes & bacon. I started out by leveling the table the stove sits on, so no runoff! Because of my somewhat limited water supply (refilling means hooking up the trailer & driving to the fill station 3/4 of a mile away) I also mixed the batter in a plastic drinking cup to avoid having to clean a mixing bowl.

All in all, it was big enough & late enough that I skipped lunch, although I did take the time to read the Syracuse paper. I'm trying to limit my power usage since yesterday my laptop crashed while I was outside reading & decided to draw over 10 amps for about an hour. Of course today is cloudy, so I'm not getting the full impact of my solar panel...

The Gravel Pit Ramada (located just below & east of my site) is home to a Sunday afternoon jam session. Wasn't sure what to expect, but there is a feast of musicians playing all kinds of instruments. I can listen from my site, but went down to take some photos. Well planned; they even have a dial posted to tell everyone what key the next number is in. Like all get-togethers of this type, there are various levels of talent, but for the most part they are very good. Wish I had my recording gear!


Dinner will be a grilled chicken thigh & the rest of the snap peas.

Until tomorrow -
