On Friday, I had to attend a work meeting in Providence, RI. It took just over 4 hours to get there and the meeting went well. Hopefully we will get a contract with this potential customer.
The ride home, however was a disaster. I expected to hit commuter traffic in the Boston area, and I did, but it was manageable. But, I didn't expect the Everett Turnpike in southern NH to be closed due to an accident. After being stuck in traffic for over an hour, I was forced to leave the road. I tried to use my iPhone to find an alternate route with two different mapping applications. However, both of them insisted that I had to get back on the closed road. I drove about 30 miles with no clue where I was before I got back to the highway. The trip that took 4 hours in the morning took 6.5 hours in the evening.
Saturday, I did some interval running - not much distance, but my speeds for the repeats was about 6:30 mpm. Later that day, my son and I went fly fishing on a notoriously tough river. This river is unstocked and supports a population of big wild brown trout and smaller rainbows. I have never gotten one of the big browns and Saturday was no different. There wasn't really a hatch until right at dark, so I fished nymphs the entire time. I hooked one rainbow and one brown, but didn't land either of them. As it got dark, I switched my son over to a dry fly because a few fish were working the surface. I think I selected the fly poorly, as he didn't get any fish to rise to his fly.
On Sunday, I slept in, did a repair to my lawn tractor, mowed the lawn, took a nap, and then went for a ride on my road bike - my first ride of the year. Later in the day, I was allowed to cook a Father's Day dinner for the family.
My wife apparently stumbled upon a set of interesting drinking glasses, and got a set for me, a set for her dad, and a set for her brother as Father's Day presents:
