2555 Means Something, But I Don’t Know What

January 3, 2011

Life is good, dear reader:  life is good. And busy.  Hoo-boy, is it busy.  What a great weekend.  I climbed North Dome and Sherrill on Friday with Heather, Tom, Debbie, Doug (whom I sort of know from the forum but hadn’t actually met in person) and some dude named Ed.  After dinner and dropping Debbie […]

OOO 7/14 to 7/18 – Unreachable.

July 13, 2010

I’m taking a couple of vacation days – Wednesday to Friday.  I’ll be up in the Adirondacks, bagging peaks.  I leave Wednesday morning and will hopefully be able to climb a mountain that afternoon.  I’ll be staying at the lean-tos at Flowed Lands.  Feel free to send me a fax. Thursday and Friday will be […]

May 21, 2010

So it’s half past midnight and I’m still up.  I really should be in bed by now.  This has been a short, hard week.  Not hard like “oh my god, I don’t think I can do this” – there’s just been a lot of work involved.  I haven’t done much outside of waking up and […]

Good Times, Bad Times

April 27, 2010

They’re all good times.  Life is good, dear reader – even when things ain’t what I’d like them to be.  My scratched cornea from that hike a couple of months ago somehow got re-opened this past weekend.  I took the day off from work on Monday and went in around 4PM on Tuesday.  It was […]

No Post Today

March 22, 2010

I’m off to bed.  Should have done so an hour ago.  I’m exhausted – this weekend wasn’t necessarily long, but I didn’t get the relaxation/decompression time I usually do, so I was a worthless sack of sh*t at work today and hope not to be tomorrow.  I burned a lot of calories this weekend and […]

I Couldn’t Have Miscalculated…

March 19, 2010

I was looking on YouTube for the scene in Spider Man 2 where Dr. Octavius (at that point newly Dr. Octopus) says “I couldn’t have miscalculated,” but I suppose that line had more of an impression on me than it did on other people. I regularly work with spreadsheets that contain equations in various cells, […]

Reading, Writing and Lauren Flax

March 11, 2010

Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. -Benjamin Franklin I’m not exactly sure where I am as far as this quote goes, but I suppose that’s ok.  As far as I’m concerned, I’ve been doing things worth writing about.  I’m still riding high on the sense of accomplishment from climbing those four […]

Why I Climb Mountains for Fun

December 27, 2009

So I’m at the beginning of my Catskill 3500 Club winter peaks goal, right?  I mean, I’ve been talking about it for a while now, but why am I doing it (you ask yourself)? At the end of the day, I think it’s basically ego-driven.  I enjoy hiking, but I like the sense of accomplishment […]

Weekend Review

December 8, 2009

This weekend turned out to be a pretty good one, even though it was short and despite my best efforts to the contrary.  I planned to get up early on Saturday to go hiking, but didn’t get out of bed until around 2PM.  That gave me enough time to get my laundry done, play some […]

We Interrupt the Boringness…

December 2, 2009

Yes, yes, I know, dear reader: post quality has been abhorrently low lately.  I have no excuse except maybe to say that I’ve just not been feeling all that interesting lately.  So before I go on with my uninterestingness, a question: Have you seen in your travels (on the interwebz) any websites similar to the […]
