right now we are shopping in the city and bringing up what we need.  i guess backpacks are a regular sight around here with the Appalachian train trail just a few miles away – including its own metro north train stop.  this week we came packed with hardware including a 73″ window shade movie screen.  amber was loaded down with fruit for our gifted juicer.  It felt a bit like hiking under the stars coming in the back way through the woods – so many animal tracks out there.
