Even Japanese people get sun burns

Saturday Night: Jon and Derrick joined us at KK’s then hit the bars downtown hard and after word the Pita Pit really hard.

Sunday Afternoon: Hillsdale Lake for the Chris Cake’s BBQ. Ate lots of BBQ, bow fishing, boat ride, beer, jet ski.

Sunday Night: Make plans for Canoe trip next weekend and marathon training schedual.

Monday Morning: 12 week Marathon training schedule begins with a stretch and 3 mile run before work.

Ok I am going forward with my plan to cover the weekends very briefly
and then go into more detail on one aspect of what I did. This way the
post is more interesting to read and I am not spending all morning
typing. So above is what I did. I’m going to show you a pic of Peanut’s bed then talk about the trip to Clinton Lake with KK and Chiaki. If you have questions about anything else let me know.

Peanut’s Tent Bed:



He will come home tonight for the first time in a week and see his cool new outdoor/camping themed room.

So Saturday morning I woke up early and got the boat and truck and cooler all packed up and we headed to Lawrence. We got there at about 10am and quickly headed out to Clinton Lake. When we got to the lake we discovered KK’s wallet was missing. So we launched the boat and Heath took Chiaki for a ride while KK and I drove back home and found the wallet on the sidewalk in front of kk’s apartment safe and sound.

  • KK and I joined the girls and Grandma was running really good. It was getting hot by this time so we cruised down the lake quickly looking for a nice cove to hang out in. We stopped in the first cove we got to and pulled up on shore then opened some beers and took a swim. After some discussion and a drink we decided this spot was too rocky and tough to swim at so we fired up the boat and headed farther down the lake.
  • Not too much farther we found a spot that looked to good to be true. It was a small cove off the main section that had a nice flat beach area surrounded by some thick trees. It was just big enough for one boat and a party of 4 or so. It was somewhat private, had a beach, a good area to swim, play Frisbee, grill. We were set. We tied up the boat and spent some time swimming and cooling off. It was really hot and sunny on so we loaded up w/ sunscreen.

Soon after we loaded up the Lil BBQ grill with sticks and news paper and started a fire with the boat battery since we had forgotten matches or a lighter. We cooked up a nice fat kielbasa sausage and grilled up some fresh pineapple. It was delicious and kept our hunger at bay. We played Frisbee on the shore for a while then built up the fire and tossed on two huge steaks and more pineapple. Then we went for a swim.

I flipped the steaks a few times and then we ate lunch. It was a couple of tender T-Bones marinated in beer and soy sauce and covered in Montreal Steak Seasoning. Lunch was a huge success and we stuffed our faces. Then drank a bit more and did some more swimming. Then KK and I blew up a tube and hooked it up to the boat and we all took turns tubing. After we were tired from tubing we went for a boat ride to an Island and tied up there for a while.

The water was shallow for a long way around the island and we were able to walk way out into the water. But it was really sunny and hot and we already showed signs of sunburn so hung out in the shade of the island for a while. It got late in no time and we ran out of beer so headed back.

At the apartment we got cleaned up and took a nap then Jon and Derrick showed up and we played some games then headed downtown. But that is another story involving lots of bee, lots of popcorn and lots of pita excitement.

    Just curious…where did you do your 3 mile run?

  2. thePrewitt says:

    First gota thank google earth’s path tool for helping me find a route ahead of time.

    Out our door and over to Walnut. South on Walnut to 99th street and east to holmes. South on holmes to the trail. Took the trail West to Wornal and then Wornal north to 97th and that arround and back to main and down to our house. It came out to exactly 3.0 when I was on Google earth but I did not do all the turns just right so it could be a bit more or less.

    http://www.woot.com looks like a good deal today but it’s hard to tell how small the camera is. 5x optical zoom is nice

    Oh , that was great time, drinking , swimming, and eating good food.

    I got pretty good sun burn, but chris was worst. You looked like a red  lobster.



    matt and i went out in manhattan on friday night . . . hopefully matt will post the video footage of him eating pizza on the floor of his apartment.  very hasselhoff-esque.

    also, kentaro, is everyone okay in Japan? 

  6. thePrewitt says:

    I have Matt’s old couch where did you sleep? Did you get to see Joe and Bob and Tom?

    Kevin, what happened in Japan?


    matt slept on his hardwood floor for a while until he became aware of his surroundings . . . then we shared a romantic sunrise in his bed in which matt awoke with a morning hardwood.

    matt woke up with all of this clothes on this time though, so lucky me i guess.

    i saw bob, tom, joe, glenna and jennifer (mrs. bob stumpff).  we went to a big family meal and everything.  it was great.



    follow the news a bit heath . . . there was a big quake.  you’re so self-centered some times.

  10. thePrewitt says:

    Don’t you ever watch the news Heath? I know of a radio station that plays it almost all the time maybe you should start listening to it.

  11. thePrewitt says:

    "I would be all about juggling at loose if we can get a third. Can you try
    to get someone?"

    Jon sent me the above this afternoon does anyone want to juggle a soccer ball with us? Loose may not be the park of choice if we can find something more on his bike ride home or near my house or even near your house if you are in. Earlyer the better.

    I’m uploading it now.  I don’t think I’ll put it on my main site, but I’ll put it here and on the MySpace.  "Sing some Erin Brown for me."  I might upload that one, too.

    Great video.  Nice camera work by Kevin with the zoom in to show the grease on the pizza and on Stooks’ forehead.
