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?!?
Feel free to write and complain.
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).
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.
In the next post I'll talk about the rest of the movie (or whatever I can get through before dinner time).
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?
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 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.
The sixth taste for dogs is whatever slippers are made of
