Today, August 21, was a wonderful day at all campus sites – but particularly our Main Campus in Butler Township. Close to 500 students, parents and friends attended our Annual Welcome Day. With the sun shining and a nice breeze, our new students benefited from meeting with faculty and staff. As I greeted new students […]

Loud Neighbors

Mid Life Crunches - Sat, 08/15/2015 - 7:09pm
How loud is loud?  My neighbors like to sit out on their deck and play a boom box.  If I have my windows closed and I am inside my house sitting on the side of the house adjacent to their property, I can hear the boom box.  It is annoying.  Luckily, my bedroom is on the other side of the house, and they seem to shut it down after 11:00PM.

18th Anniversary Ride!

Brain overflow ... here ya go! - Mon, 08/10/2015 - 8:40am


Hello! It's been WAY too long since my last blog post!
Over the weekend Travis and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary by riding a couple new trails! We started in Indiana, PA on the Hoodlebug Trail which connected to the Ghost Town Trail ending in Ebensburg, PA. We rode 45 miles to Ebensburgh on Saturday, spent the night, then 45 miles back to Indiana on Sunday. I don't have any pictures of the Hoodlebug trail, but for good reason. It wasn't very interesting and by far the bumpiest trail I have ever ridden. It was honestly horrible and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! The Ghost Town trail was much nicer with lots of fun things to see.


I especially loved the Black Lick Creek that ran along it.
Apparently there's so much iron in the water that the entire creed bed was orange!


There were also a few furnace remains that were pretty neat.
 


I also loved this abandoned bridge. It used to lead to a coal mining town which is no longer there. It's the only bridge from that time period that survived several major floods. We of course had to explore the actual bridge. It had several trees growing on it, but was very passable. It was a nice place to stop and have lunch!


Right before the end of the trail in Ebensburg we found this fun graffiti for a little photoshoot. Notice my sweet new bike accessory! Travis got me a Buca Boot for our anniversary. It's like a trunk for your bike that locks and everything! I actually took my camera along since I had somewhere to carry it! It worked out great!


Happy anniversary to my love! Here's to 18 years with many, many more adventures ahead!
