Listen to the Mocking Bird

Near the top of Sugarloaf Mountain in Morrow Mountain State Park, Uwharrie Mountains, I heard, but never saw, this delightful mimid, presumably a mocking bird.  I did see a brown thrasher a few minutes later.

Not Captain's Blog

My wife cleverly came up with the idea of writing a blog about our forthcoming travels in our tricked-out van.  We were looking at a Road Trek van, which rhymes with Star Trek, so it was only natural that she came up with the name "Captain's Blog" for the blog.

Then we found we preferred Pleasure Way vans to Road Trek vans, and now I see that on both Blogspot and Wordpress the name "captainsblog" has already been claimed.

Claimed, but not used.  Blogspot's captainsblog has an entry from 2000.  Wordpress's version has the creative entry "Hello World," with a 2005 date.

So don't look for me there.

Any suggestions for a name for the new "ship" will be considered.
