Humor and Life

My satire is bad; my life details are worse. Still, people laugh at both, so join in the party. Everyone's invited.

Science and Philosophy

Thinking about thinking is important. How do our minds interface with the world? What can we do to avoid making errors? Does morality exist?   


Without spirit, nothing matters. But if you have free will, it makes all the difference in the world.


  • Green: Day hikes, but can be done overnight.
  • Yellow: Typically 2-3 night hikes.
  • Red Longer hikes, typically 4+ nights.
  • Purple: Camping spots, hotels, villas, and excursions.
  • Blue: Camping combined with something else, typically kayaking.


  • I’m transcribing my reviews in my own order, but if you’d like any moved to the top of the list, just shoot me a message.


  • Significant zooming is required to see all activities. Some trailheads have 5+ hikes, which do not show at default zoom levels.

Partial Transcript of Dr. Robert Malone with Jimmy Dore on Mass mRNA Vaccination

Reading Time: 5 minutes My friend [redacted] told me that things might be better if we societally-engineered everyone into getting vaccinated with our current vaccines. I told him that I owed him a longer response, but I didn’t have much time back then. I will submit this (hand-done, by me) transcription of a sliver of a speech for his consideration; I chose this because it was aimed at laypeople.
