Tuesday Skating

Tuesday, 18-August-2009 - Boekel - It was the last training session before the 100km tour on Saturday. We headed in the direction of Gemert. We got back just after dark. Bart turned his running lights on so we could be seen from behind. We were good for 30 km on this warm evening.

105 Km on Skates

Saturday, 8-August-2009 - Oirschot, NL/Postel, BE - It was the farthest I ever skated in one day. Seventeen skaters and three moped riders made the trip from Oirschot to the Postel Abby in Belgium, and back--105 km! We had perfect weather, smooth routes through wooded areas. We departed at 0930 and returned at 1900. The more experienced and stronger skaters kept a good eye on the first-timers. Everyone made it back in good health. Fun-on-wheels skater Pieter Smits was our host and guide. He had a swimming pool and a barbecue waiting for us when got back. It was a truly a day to remember.

Protecting the Small Planet Earth

Sunday, 2-August-2009 - Boxtel - No skating today--got rained out. Marij and I took this opportunity to go De Kleine Aarde (the small planet Earth), an information center for the environment in Boxtel about 19 km away. Co-generation home heaters employing a stirling engine, solar panels, and 500 watt wind turbines--all got my full attention.
