    The summer activity checklist

    It's the middle of summer so that means it's time to break out the checklist to make sure you're on schedule to accomplish everything you need to. Feel free to add any quintessential summer activities I may have missed.

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Most of everything on the list. Especially during the long 4th weekend vacation in my hometown.

    Biked around town a ton
    Kayaked and paddle boarded in Downtown on the river
    Chilled on the lawn with drinks and grilled food
    Several trips down the street to the City beach for fun in Lake Huron and playing in the sand
    Generally enjoying beautiful weather in northern Lower Michigan

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    I've got kids so I did most of the things with them. Surprisingly I haven't brewed any sun tea. My wife loves the stuff.

    Where I live, try not to pass out from heat exhaustion. I went to baseball game when I went up north.

    Come on, it's not that bad... It's only 211 degrees outside. Water can't even boil!


    For me, there has been cold beers by the pool, boating/swimming on a local river with an old friend from my first planning job, unpacking, exploring the area, and just getting settled in.

    Well, I didn’t fare too badly. We covered a bunch of items on our week long road trip to California (redwoods, the ocean, camping, many hours of books on CD) and are going on a river trip in two weeks. Paddled the local Great River in town earlier in the summer as well. I go on a big bike ride every weekend so I got that covered. And grilling outside? My favorite. Last night I made brats. Mmmm, porky…

    Must brew sun tea.

    I can't vote in that poll...

    ...because I have done nothing on that list! <?>

    Poll question:
    Which of the following have you done this summer?
    I take that question to mean:
    Which of the following have you done since June 21, 2015?
