Hungarian Falls

Yesterday, Rae, Whitney and I headed out to Hungarian Falls. Our initial plans involved snowshoeing ou there, but a precipitous rise in temperature (it rose above 50) forced us to simply dig out our boots.

It was a fun trip, we attempted to find the trail to the bottom of the lower falls, but couldn’t locate it (none of us had ever gone that way before) so we headed back to the trail that would take us to the top of the lower falls. After moving to the side of the trail for a passing armada of snowmobiles, we started our hike along the cliffs.

We got to the top and found the falls flowing fairly well, probably due to all the snow that had melted and poked around a bit. We then headed up to see the middle and upper falls which are much smaller. We then started our trip back, reached the Jeep and headed to Calumet for a trip to Burger King via Lake Linden and Laurium.

I’ll leave you with a picture of Rae and Whitney. You can find the rest of the pictures on flickr.

Spring Break Plans

So, I was talking about plans for Spring Break a couple days ago, and I now have plans to go to Washington D.C. over break for a vacation. I’m looking for a couple more people to go with us to fill up the car (and split gas) though.

Anyone interested?

Classes

Classes have started again, and I’m enjoying myself. Broomball is probably my favorite class, though it has left me in a lot of pain. Speech won’t be as bad as I feared and though it is pushing me, I think my class on techniques for teaching math will be quite interesting.

Military History of the U.S. will be interesting, it’s with my favorite SS department member and I think I’ll become pretty good friends with one of the SS majors in there. Social Problems will probably prove to be entertaining, I’ve heard the professor loves to offend everyone equally.

The rest of my classes aren’t really worth talking about I suppose.

CAEL should be an interesting semester. We’re going to visit area high schools and attempt to recruit some new Partners. In addition to that, we’re going to be working on completely rewriting the training manual and putting together 2 other manuals, one for the Senior Partners and one on editing the manual. Luckily, I’m only helping with those and not in charge of them.

All in all, it looks like it should be a good semester. And for those of you who constantly ask, there’s no girlfriend yet, but I have a couple interests that probably won’t pan out.

Site Downtime

Sorry to everyone about the recent downtime.  Friday, my housemate that owned the router moved out, so there was significant downtime that day.  Yesterday and today have seen a few problems with the hardware that was used to replace the router (we’re now running off a commodity Motorola router).  My housemate that administers the network is looking around for a better option, but until then, there will probably be times when the site is unavailable.

New Common Area

As promised, here are a few pictures of the former pool area.
