Happy Summer Solstice . . . the longest day of the year.

When I was in Alaska a couple of years ago I learned that they really live it up on this day as they have nearly 24 hours of sunlight and I have to say I loved it in June (visiting in mid-September was a bit cool though and there was less light) . . . of course they pay for this sunlight in middle of winter with a little less than 8 hours of "sunlight."

In any case, I "celebrated" today by doing a few great caches . . . so go out and enjoy this great weather and "long" day!

I was under the impression that all the days of the year were 24 hours:rolleyes: That is of course with the exception of the day in the fall when we set the clocks ahead.:p

I suppose you are correct . . . perhaps I should have said the day with the longest amount of daylight.

I don't know about "downhill" . . . I look forward to the winter -- after all it means snowmobiling, beautiful winterscapes and no bugs.

Incidentally, it sounds like things should be busy around your neck of the woods this weekend with a huge ATV rally/ride.

Sure, sure . . . and I would still be unable to find them and they would get sucked up through the filter and the next thing I would know I would have a whole bunch of magnetic key holders and match containers blocking my filter. :D
