Yeah, that's some sort of circus tent in the mall parking lot. I haven't heard anything about it.
Someone talking about Suicide Squad mentioned an animated one made a couple of years ago and I watched that this morning while watching my work inbox. It was ok. The movie out in theaters now is actually pretty good, at least compared to the low expectations I had from all the talk about it. Jared Leto was definitely not the best part about it and the decision to cut most of his scenes was a good one.
My Friday/Saturday plan is coming together nicely. I found a restaurant to go to about 20 miles from my rental (which is quite far from everything) to enjoy a fancy dinner. I've agreed to bring my work laptop with me to check on work stuff since my boss has the whole day off, and since it'll be with there, I can watch a movie in bed if I feel like it. I'm not planning on staying up very late at all, though, because I'd like to start my hike Saturday as early as possible. But the rental comes with stuff to make a country breakfast and I'm certainly not going to leave without enjoying that.
One site says the place I'm planning to hike is 8 miles, while another says 5.5. I can handle either, but I'm curious about the discrepancy. I'll look on MapMyRun for people's routes to see what those say. And I'm glad I read the reviews, because it's a loop, and now I know which direction to go in order to get all the climbing done first thing. That's the kind of intel I really appreciate.
I still have a couple of choices to make about Friday. Mainly, if I do a walk in the morning, I need to get home and get everything I'm wearing into the laundry so I can pack clean gear. I could wash everything tomorrow and swim instead. We'll see. Either way, I need to get my CPAP cleaned, dry, and packed that morning. No way I'm going without it.
