August recap: DT, Chippy, Pubs, Runs and G-Had   159 comments

A relatively busy month just passed.  Here’s the short version (somewhat longer versions available in the blog).

Ten new Chippy Challenge entries include the southernmost and westernmost, circled here:

At 91 for the year so far, I predict a year-long tally of  about 125 (definitely more than 109 and up to, at the current average rate, 137). The venues themselves were:

90 Bobby’s Fish and Chips Swindon, Wiltshire 23-Aug Chippy
91 Golden Dish Fish and Chips Malmesbury, Wiltshire 30-Aug Chippy

.

Of course, the Daily Tipple trundles along easily and the Haiku are not yet becoming repetitive (albeit, enough of them are entirely derivative).  We drink a lot of wine seems to be the take home message of the DT:

With a bit more travel than normal this month, I was able to add a few new pubs this month, bringing the blog total to over 1250 with 20 new ones this month.  The new ones, few though they are, are shown here and, easier to see, on the map link:

new pubs august 2014

My running mileage is nothing special (170 miles this month) looking back over the previous years, but it is back up to a sustainably middling-to-long-mileage level.  While still short of the planned 2015 ramp up (I’ve got some upcoming surgery that will slow things a bit), I’ve got a good baseline level of fitness for the advanced (and ever-advancing) age.

Largely due to the extra mileage and the aforementioned local tourism, the G-Had is starting to bleed into new realms and I have a few potential recruits (although they may, just as easily, become hashers).  The missions completed in August hit 3 sites with new attacks against Bristol HHH and Wilton HHH.
