Lakeside Park

While in Kingsville, I noticed this sign for the first time. I do not think it was there the last time I came to the park. I am pretty sure but not absolutely sure I would have noticed it the last time I was in there. I did a couple of other waymarks really really close to there. The only trouble is that I can be Captain Oblivious sometimes. Other times, I have my spidey waymarker senses on and noticing everything. The waymark for this sign is HERE.

Chrysler Canada Greenway

One of the neat features in Essex County, Ontario is the Greenway. I have waymarked one of the access points of it HERE. I have walked some of this trail and wish i had more to time to do so on the last walk. It is long enough that I would really like to do a day or two bike tour of it. This particular access point is near the Pelee Island Winery which makes for a nice starting or ending point and there is a benchmark here from the time that this use to be a railroad.

If you want more information about this neat trail, check out the wkipedia article HERE.

Canadian Benchmarks

I went on another trip to Southern Ontario. True to my habits, I had my GPSr and digital camera in tow to do some waymarking. I found two more canadian benchmarks. I understand that benchmarks are not everyone's cup of tea but it always interests me on where they are placed and what is used for benchmarks. One of them was at the Kingsville harbor and the other was along was used to be the Pere Marquette railroad. that railroad has been converted into a trail. I will be talking more about that tomorrow.

The waymarks for these two benchmarks are here:

Is anyone other than me not surprised?

I heard a news story about how there is a backlog of foreclosures and the peak of foreclosures will not happen until sometime next year. Link to story is HERE. I did not see this coming but I am not in the least surprised. The credit crunch was severe and it is rippling out. This reminds me of the ripple effect on farm loans a while back. Just judging by the way the finances around my house has changed, it is going to be ugly for a long time. Not only are we not as willing to spend, we are not willing to borrow more money than we already have and priority one for our money is to dump as much debt as we can. The final effect is we are not going to spend all that much more than we have to. The economy based on that is going to be in the toilet. I got a feeling, my wife and I are not the only ones is this situation.

Attention all the goobers in Washington who call themselves politicians.
Please get your cranial rectal inversion taken care of and start being frugal with the money you are taxing from our pockets and calling it helping the American people. Both sides of the aisle can take their share of the blame and it about time they start using some common sense. Mark Twain was so right about how uncommon it is.

Bench on trail 7

I went down to Pokagon State Park. I found a bench that had a dedication and a fabulous view. It is waymarked HERE. It was worth the hike just to see the view.
