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, […]

Sometimes Hikers Die

March 18, 2010

Two hikers got lost on Blackhead Mountain last weekend.  One of them died. When I talk to people about my hiking adventures, they are of one or two mindsets: a.  They think it’s all just a walk in the woods and that nothing could be easier, or b.  They think I’m some kind of sick […]

Today’s Hike 3-28-2009

March 28, 2009

Today I’ll be hiking Fir Mountain.  At 3,620 feet, Fir is the 25th highest peak in the Catskills.  It doesn’t have a trail to the summit, so it’ll be a bushwack tomorrow.  I’m planning to head in from the parking area at Burnham Hollow Road and hike south to get to the summit.  It should […]
