    We had an interesting hiking incident take place up here this week. A hiker got in trouble on Franconia Ridge in the Whites and for some reason thought the first call he should make looking for help should be the the local hiking page "Hike the 4000…

    ...speaking of fun nights out in MD a long time ago... My good friend was getting married (probably around 1980). Everyone went out to a crab house in Annapolis (awesome). Then the guys went to some redneck bar for a bachelor's party. One of the guys in…

    I grew up in between DC and Baltimore, but closer to DC. However I once went with a group to a polka hall somewhere in the "Balmer" area. It was a hoot. It was probably around the late 1970's.

    While I grew up with traditional bowling and even was on our club team one year in college, I have never done candlepin or duckpin. On the other hand with raising four children, I have done a lot of skee ball at Chuckie Cheese. :D

    Duckpin is even rarer than Candlepin. I believe there is one duckpin lane left in the Boston area, although there are still several in Rhode Island. Duckpin has ten-pin style pins (candlepins are straight), but you throw three smaller balls like in…
