dogs clean their feet by rubbing them on the ground to remove the scent from their paws and not to cover the droppings.

Watched 'First man' with Miss Me and Nancy. So moving and powerful!

Need to step up on the AMC front. I'll be co-leading a couple backpacking trips and a few hikes over the next couple months. Can't wait to get that rolling this week!

Spent quite a chunk of this weekend also re-working my data storage solution. Moved all of my personal data from the Nextcloud install on Digital Ocean to my personal NextCloud box. Late last week I realised I was saving the data on the SD card and not on the connected external hard disk. Took me sometime to figure out how to point the default data location as the external drive. Nevertheless, got it to work finally. Was a pretty straight forward work around but should document this in detail sometime soon.

The NC Box is setup for the most part. I now need to figure out a backup solution for it. Will most probably tinker with Unison, Rclone over the next few weeks to sort this out.

Looks like we had a heavy pollen shower on Saturday. in Cochituate and Walden Pond with the Bhaskars. Totally mesmerized by the water in Walden pond! Reminded me of kayaking in the springs of Florida. One phenomenal weekend!

At the AMC trip planning meeting yesterday, felt like being in a war room. Everyone had their Maps and calendar out busily chalking out trip plans for Spring ad Summer. Been a while that I've done this. This is home!

Updated my home router DNS to Good riddance ISP sneaking!


Five years back, this day we moved to the U.S. Still remember that wonderful run in Owings mills! Time flies!

Drove about 3 hours to visit the source of the . Decided to head to the 'Source of the Nile' restaurant
on the west banks of the river instead of the more touristy 'Jinja' side. I think it was a pretty good decision! Beautiful views from the hill and refreshingly windy.

70% of water apparently originates from Lake Victoria - Which in turn is fed by several streams from various regions nearby and 30% from springs or elsewhere...Pretty surreal being there by the waters!

Drive after Lugazi was pretty straight forward and actually more enjoyable than the section between and Lugazi. Most of it was through the Mabira Forest which we went to [a few days back](

Tomorrow early AM, we head back to Boston. So glad we decided to 'close-out' this trip with the Nile visit!

A splendid 4.5hour, 11km walking tour in . Idi Amin's torture chambers... A 93 year old temple that Idi Amin surprisingly didn't flatten...Unlike portrayed in most history books, Gaddafi is not considered a tyrant here by the Bugandese people!...The first son of the Bugandan King apparently would be the chief advisor and never gets to take the throne...
