This one has been here for a few weeks now. And I am wondering when they gonne clean it. I don’t mind and I can imagine a lot of runners and dog-walkers don’t mind either. It’s those on their hordes. It is after all a horse trail. Even if I haven’t seen a horse on it in the 5 years I have been commuting along this path.

OK, I rarely swing by there in the evenings anymore, I have more fun trails to ride on than a gravel road. But in the mornings it’s perfect to warm up and don’t get too exhausted before work.

Yip, another one of Tuesday afternoon/evening. And actually a few minutes before previous photo. This is where I climb for about just over 10 minutes and take in the view, before I rush down in the open field and get into the forest again.

I mean, look at this!! Biking around in the forest and in the west you see this amazing light and colors. So lucky I can do this every day to get to work and back home.

PS: OK, I know…. this is not the best picture with that lamp, but it’s to give you an idea that you still need lights in the forest to see where to ride.

Last view of town for 2019

One from the last day of the 2019. We decided to go into town to watch the fireworks, because we haven’t done that in a long time with the kids. And why not make it a whole afternoon and go to the movies before??? Otherwise I don’t think they would have wanted to go into town.

The surprise was waiting for the bus to get home with apparently half of the neighborhood. Luckily we have a daughter who is 13 and travels a lot by bus and had the perfect plan B route. Even better than the original!!!

Stomach Bug

I mean, a fever and a headache, fine. But a stomach bug ??? Can’t hold down food or drinks. Spending most of the night on the toilet. I hope I will skip this for another …. eternity!!

January with all its boring weather. But, you try to make the most of it. It wasn’t bad at all. Almost no wind and just a bit of a drizzle in the air. No heavy rainfall.

The only thing I was really worried about was my tennis-elbow and how it would hold up. I knew that as long as I wouldn’t have too much pain on the fun sections, I would probably go for it and try to ignore the pain. So, it will be interesting to see how the elbow is behaving tomorrow.

New Site with Hugo

This is a totally new site. No more Wordpress!! Just plain old HTML and some CSS to make it look nice.

The reason was that Wordpress was getting more and more complex to play around with. I wanted to change the theme for my site, but with all the latest upgrades, it wasn’t so easy anymore. Then I saw a lot of talk about “good old static sites” that load super fast (because there is no database behind it). The other big advantage is that I write blog-posts in markdown now!!!! It makes life so much easier.

So first I tried Jekyll. Quick and easy installation. Even found a plugin that can transfer all your Wordpress posts to Jekyll posts with all the tags and categories, … But, with over 1000 posts on the old wordpress, it took ages to reload and rebuilt the site with Jekyll as soon as you made a change somewhere.

Looking for a solution I stumbled across Hugo. Built on Go and super fast. So I found a Tufte theme for it and 5 minutes later I was working with a new site. Easy peasy….

But what will take some time now is importing all the old stuff. I still want it here, but with a better layout and some correct data about the photos taken. Slowly but surely.
