I'm a web developer/sysadmin/host (NERD TRIPLE THREAT!) and this is my attempt to write about...leaving the house. Sometimes. Like, to go backpacking. And take some pictures. And justify spending the money on all the gear WHY SO MUCH?!?

So check back weekly for all the smrt missives! And the dumb tweets!

Also hiking things!

Feel free to write and complain.

This all happened because he kept swiping cabs.

Now for another Nit-picky Review of North by Northwest (the first hour I've watched so far THE WIFE DOESN'T LIKE MY MOVIES).

Gonna have to wait a while to tap anything at this table.

What trips me up so far is why go straight to offing the guy when asking politely doesn't work? Are you trying to say Martin Landau can't do torture? HAVE YOU SEEN B*A*P*S?!?!

I do have to admit though it was nice to see a Woman of a Certain Age having a prominent-ish role at the CIA's Good Luck Chuck table.

Who the hell is Jason Bourne?

In the next post I'll talk about the rest of the movie (or whatever I can get through before dinner time).

This is known as "foreshadowing"

I see what you did there....

Next to dueling banjos, hearing a clown horn while hiking alone in the woods is the most unsettling thing.

Location: Laurel Highlands, north trailhead parking lot to decker shelter

Trail Distance: 11.5 (50.1 miles ytd)

My thermometer said it was 65 degrees, but my shirt said WHY ARE WE IN AFRICA?!? I'm used to hiking in the cooler weather -- this was pretty brutal. I drank more water than usual, but not nearly enough to avoid the dehydration headache. Or lack of coffee headache. Who's to say?

I got better...

The takeaway from this trip -- besides MOAR WATERZ -- is that those rehydratable paper towel thingins are super handy. Many thumbs up, will soak again.

Oh and hey guys I got my base weight under 10lbs so I am extra-special elite now, right?

I think his name is Sherlock

Didn't drop the poopsack!

I can hike a dozen miles with a 20lb pack through rain, roots and rocks but one uneven stretch of sidewalk and ASS OVER TEAKETTLE

I compose tweets while hiking alone in the forest. Just like #Thoreau.

The wife says I've been going on and on about wanting to get a drone.
