Reading Time: 45 minutes A portion of this hike is utterly worth it. A large section I have no interest in seeing again. All of it is better than a minute spent watching Jimmy Fallon.
Reading Time: < 1 minute Addressing the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab promised that the Great Reset will lead to great things.
Reading Time: 6 minutes The comedy of my wedding.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Victory most holy has arrived in the world.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Many of us (including your kind troll here) often miss nuance and depth in the Bible by boiling things down too much. For example, we boil down our Bibles to “Old Testament” and “New Testament,” even though technically the gospels pretty much occur during what would be regularly called “Old Covenant.” In doing this aggressive boiling, we miss a lot of richness offered in the word. Some aspects that are thus overlooked are below:
Reading Time: 6 minutes A glorious post in which I rank Kühl Deceptr, Renegade, Radikl, and Transcendr pants in order of how much I like them when hiking.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Tensions at The Daily Wire have flared recently as long-time employee Candace Owens seems to have forgotten that she works for a neocon organization.
Reading Time: 2 minutes With a record net profit of 43% this year, Goliath Industries, Inc. is excited to offer its 135,000 employees an affordable, new healthcare option this open season.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Altra’s Olympus 5 is an absolute treasure in reducing damage foot pain and damage, but it’s let down by an insane lack of durability.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Creepers socks are now my go-to sock for long-distance backpacking, as they have resolved all my foot- and toe-pain issues.
Reading Time: 17 minutes This area of the Winds is underrated. My 1/2 pregnant wife, my 8 year-old daughter, and the rest of us enjoyed this hike, but we found out a way to do it far more efficiently at the end.
Reading Time: 8 minutes I love the WillowAce socks and am glad that I gave them a go. For under $60, I’ve made myself, my wife, and my mom quite happy.
Reading Time: 29 minutes I hiked the Six Lakes in Wyoming’s Gros Ventre Range. I don’t really have enemies, so I don’t have anyone to recommend it to.
Reading Time: 2 minutes Yue Little grew a caterpillar into a pure, white moth, which she named Calvin. When I witness such things, imagining that somehow, through a blind process chock-full of errors, an organism arose which changes from a many-legged caterpillar into a two-winged creature of flight, is so preposterous as to be something out of a fairy tale.
Reading Time: < 1 minute My wife is pregnant and our income was recently slashed to the tune of around 150K/year, while our rent is now up to $30K/year. The price for hosting has also gone up on me by 30%. Until I find a new hosting provider or get a side job, I am going to run ads during the heavy-use season when people other than my family and friends are using bandwidth. It…
Reading Time: 5 minutes Pelham Lake can be accessed by an incredibly short neature walk. It doesn’t seem to really have crowds. We enjoyed it for what it was.
Reading Time: 7 minutes Introduction Why did I get some Kühl Transcendr pants and bother to post a review of such length? If you’ve read my hiking reviews (a massive ask, to be fair, and potentially a violation of the Geneva Convention if prisoners of war were made to do it), you know that I’m very particular about my pants. I’ve long struggled to find a really, truly good pair of hiking pants. One…
Reading Time: 8 minutes My go-to midlayer for skiing.
Reading Time: 6 minutes My wife bought me a Black Diamond Approach Down Vest and I figured that I’d review it. I’ve been using the vest for about 7 months now; this season we skied many hundreds of miles. I’ve used the vest for both nordic and downhill skiing and have worn it regularly to work, so I think that I can now comment honestly on it.
Reading Time: 2 minutes The universe beginning to exist is a problem for atheism in that it indicates a creator. Multiple attempts to bypass this problem have been propounded, but my favorite is the argument that nothing exists right now. Does that sound crazy? Surely a professor at Oxford wouldn’t say that, right? I cut out this clip of the renowned chemist Dr. Peter Atkins saying just that. It’s quite the escape hatch to…
Reading Time: < 1 minute We’ve all heard of murderers who are described as having soulless eyes. It’s a creepy thing to imagine. In the worldview of atheism though, everyone has soulless eyes, because no one has a soul.
Reading Time: 3 minutes Starting today, I’m going to be investing time into reviewing products (like those pictured below) which have significantly impacted my enjoyment of the outdoors. If you have any ideas about items that might improve my life, please feel free to let me know.
Reading Time: 12 minutes The unnamed lakes in Sweetwater Gap are worth a visit given how easy they are to access, as well as just how surprisingly pretty you’ll find them. I didn’t see any fish there, but it was late in the year.
Reading Time: 30 minutes Although a really nice hike, I’d probably only do this in fall to minimize the awful crowds.
Reading Time: 18 minutes A world-class day hike that I wouldn’t do in peak tourist season.
