    54 Its been a long while since I was on these forums. I went off the low carb diet after emigrating and struggled through 2-3 years of bad blood glucose readings and terrible hba1cs. Back on a low carb diet now and on Friday I got my first CGM - took 2 days and a lot of frustration to get it working properly, but its been fantastic today and my sugars have not gone high today though I've been low twice, but I think that was because I was back at work after a short break. Hopefully my next Hba1c will be much better than the last.

    105 That's the lowest reading that I had in a long time. I am heading up to the cottage on Cape Cod this morning to be at the cottage when hurricane Dorian passes by Friday night, Saturday morning. It is supposed to be a catagory 1 or tropical storm and the Cape is supposed to get 40 - 50 mph winds (64 - 80 kph) with several inches of rain. I don't expect any damage except for tree limbs coming down and power outages. I'm bringing water (I have well water there), flashlights, battery powered radio, and a gas camp stove but I don't think I will need them, it shouldn't be any worse than a thunderstorm. Last night I had a tornado warning where I live, we had a line of storms pass by at sunset. A little worried when they issued the warning and the warning box included my town, radar showed rotation in the clouds.

    118 Went on a first date last night. Sat on the beach with some adult beverages hoping to catch a rocket launch at the cape 100 miles away. Never saw it and we got cold so ended up sitting in her car talking for an hour and a half. We talked about going to a restaurant but this is a tourist, resort island and it's spring break so we knew all the restaurants would be packed at that time. As I was backing out to go home I checked the rocket launch and it had been delayed and was at T-minus 2 minutes so I parked and looked. Saw it really good for about a minute or more. The night time ones are the best. Double good night. First date (I think there will be a second) and a rocket launch.

    Speaking of Fiare, we just had another grand adventure. We climbed Mauna Loa. The paved road ends at 3,353M (11,000 feet). The big challenge is to start at sea level and go all the way up. My friends at the bike store advised against that for a first go since I have never ridden at altitude. They recommended I start at the road that turns off the main highway. The start altitude is about 2,000M (~6,500 feet). The road is 30 km long (a little less than 15 miles) one way and the climb is 1,353M (~3,500 feet). The average grade is about 4.5%. While not the longest ride I have done, it was easily the most physically and mentally demanding. It is all uphill and there are some 8% grades in the last part of the ride to make this even more fun. I was riding at altitude so breathing was tough. It was cold. I had long sleeves and full finger gloves. I actually stayed pretty warm going up since you work bloody hard. This was a group ride. We started with 4 and ended with 2 (don't worry, the other turned around). It took me a little under 3 hours to make the ascent. Whether that is good or bad, I don't know, but I am satisfied that I made it. Having the other rider pushed me to make it. I really believe I would have turned around at several points had I gone solo. The top was interesting. No plants, no birds, no noise except the wind and whatever noise you make. The slopes of these volcanoes have been used for astronaut training for the lunar landings. The also simulate what a biosphere on Mars or the Moon might be like. While the utter barrenness offers a unique beauty, I am glad to live among the plants and animals of our biosphere. Going down was fun! Like an hour long rollercoaster ride. At the bottom the other rider was done but I had a little more in me. I rode on the highway to another park and back to make for a 75km ride in total. Dawn - There was just the smallest sliver of a nearly new Moon which can be seen if you zoom on the photo... This was the starting point. The kipuka. A kipuka is an island of land that was surrounded by lava. These can be interesting because sometimes evolution takes some interesting turns in these isolated spots. The kipuka will be used as a reference to show progress of the ride. Various rest stops. Way, way, off in the distance is Hilo, my hometown... Couple more rest stops. The elevation is painted onto the road pavement. The top of the road. Made it! After the descent, I found this line of cumulus clouds interesting...

    6.7 Mike, it seems you have reservations on that seat on the bus stop. I'm off to chase a ball. I throw it & my dog runs to it & then sits. I walk to the ball and throw it again My dog runs to it and sits. I walk to the ball and....................... I just dont get it. He sees other dogs return theirs. I do all the cutesy begging for him to fetch & eventually I start walking to it.
