  • 3 x 8 week section walks

    Post

    let's start with year one. i'd recommend starting at springer on april 1. that gives you one month in your desired time frame and one month out. many people start in mid march and/or march 1. starting on march 1 puts you hiking inside your desired time frame. it also guarantees you will have cold weather and snow at some point on your hike. people start thrus on march 1 (and earlier) and complete them. but in my opinion it's not optimal. for what it's worth i started my thru on may 1. but that's…

    Quote from Astro: “Game represented the current state of MLB with 10 home runs and 25 strike outs. Throw in the 9 walks, and that makes 44 "ultimate outcomes", meaning 4.4 batters per inning did not put a ball in play (for the defense to field). Makes we wonder if that is a record. ” i watched the whole game; but i gotta admit it was not exciting in the least to me. don't like the "home run or strike out" era that the game has evolved to. i will say one thing complimentary. i watched the whole g…

    i started going to jimmy buffet "concerts" in college. and by "concert" i mean it's buffet in a bar or coffee shop performing for free (i did pay a $2 cover charge once at a bar in coconut grove). one time in coral gables the first hour of his show was just me and my friends at a single table. how in the world did he get to be 71 years old!? i also can't believe this song came out 15 years ago...seems like yesterday. youtube.com/watch?v=BPCjC543llU

    Quote from Astro: “Hard to believe, Academy Sports fires Store Manager for stopping gun thief. More concerned about a "law suit" than preventinga a crime in their own store. This is so backwards. tallahassee.com/story/news/201…-theft-suspect/772900002/ ” ridiculous. lets hope he gets a job with a more enlightened company with a substantial pay increase.
