    Brewers making it interesting, win without even using Josh Hader. He was a starter before Astros traded him to Brewers, and has few days rest. So I would not be surprised if goes 3 innings tomorrow if needed.

    The funny thing is I still occasionally see people giving advice about backcountry water treatment claiming that filters are not that great because pumps are slow, heavy, and prone to breaking and clogging. I feel like replying with "you know that there…

    I'm a Semite in a way that could only happen in the U.S.A. From my mother's side I have Jewish blood, and from my father's side I have Arab blood. Every time there's a war in the middle east I get confused and don't know who to root for.

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
