cool weather

  1. it's really cooled off in the last week. the leaves should turn soon we hope. it was a really nice day out so me and whitty decided to get out and go to the weir. there were a few clouds out but mostly sunny. whitty got his skates out and we skated across to the other side of osceola island and back four or five times.
  2. after we did that whitty took me for a walk around the island. this time we went all the way around. the full mile and half of the trail. it was a good workout we had today. the skating and the hike tired us both out. the trail is mostly level so it wasn't too bad of a walk.
  3. i got to see some buddies i hadn't seen in a while and got to meet some new ones. whitty got to chat with a few people. one guy told us about geo caching. it's a game you play using a gps. where people hide items then others try to find them. sounds pretty cool. the guy said there were items all over osceola island. when we got back whitty went to the web site and found more than a dozen between our house and the south holston dam. one is within walking distance.
  4. we'll let ya'll know how the geo caching turns out. whitty says there's a bunch at steel creek park. sounds like a good adventure is coming up as fall comes in.

dog walk

  1. me and whitty heard that on sunday there was going to be a dog walk-run event at winged deer park in johnson city. at first it was going to be held on saturday but it was changed to sunday. we went down about noon on sunday. we only seen two or three people there when we arrived. none of them even heard about the dog run-walk. a few dogs showed up later with their pet humans afterwards.
  2. whitty got his skates out and we made our way around the track three or for times. after a few trips whitty noticed a sign not allowing skating or bikes. so we made or way back to the car and whitty put his skates up and we walked around the track a couple of more times. i noticed a trail that went off into the woods and talked whitty into checking it out. we hiked a short way up the trail and circled around back to the parking lot.
  3. the trail split and went differnt ways but we didn't go to far. we didn't have a map or know where or how far they went. we kept the hike short because we started out tired from skating and walking the track around the ball feilds. what we saw of the trails it seemed like they were really nice. we may go back and check them out and see where they lead to.
  4. i did get to meet a couple of other dogs and play with them. but their pet humans hadn't heard about the dog walk either. whitty was expecting i would have a lot of new buddies to play with. i hoped that more had showed up. we had a lot of rain this week leading up to sunday. that may have kept some home thinking it still might rain. no rain but a lot of wind on sunday.
  5. on the way out we stopped and saw some land marks and an old log house. whitty took a few pics i thought he should share with you. whitty wants to come back when the leaves start to change. should make for some nice  pics.
