    Quote from max.patch: “i don't know why anyone would bring a cat to a game -- but then again i don't know why someone would want to bring a dog to a game (especially when you have to buy the dog a ticket) -- or why teams would want dogs at a game -- but most teams have one game a year (dog days or bark in the park) where ya can bring your dog and sit in a special dog section. securea.mlb.com/assets/images/…6954/cuts/900x600/cut.jpg ” I was thinking more like they snuck it in and then let it loos…

    Quote from max.patch: “youtube.com/watch?v=lOoEqqriviU ” OK, so does someone bring the cat to the game and let it loose? Or does the stadium keep cats there to take care of rodents, and this one just got loose (or went where it wasn't supposed to)?

    Quote from odd man out: “Anyone have experience with the Steripen? I've been reading a lot of blogs from trekkers in Nepal recently and it seems to be the water purification method of choice. It gets a lot of good reviews. ” I once bought one of those on MassDrop, but don't know where I put it. Sounds like a neat idea, but sorta scary if it really works or not. I guess I need try it on a short trip around home some time. Of course I will need to find it first.

    I carry both a Sawyer Filter and AM drops. Which I use depends on the situation. Usually filter. But like having backup just in case.

    the brady bunch house is for sale for $1.9 million. Quote from max.patch: “hard to believe a couple with 6 kids and a housekeeper could fit in this 3 bedroom, 3 bath house. about 30-50 people a day come to house just to look at the outside of it. the agency handling the sale says viewing will be by appointment only -- said if they had open house it would be a mad house with at least a thousand people showing up. the house was originally purchased for $61,000. supposed to be the 2nd most photogra…

    IMScotty, thanks for the link. Since it just stung my finger and I washed it off good right after I took the picture and killed the bug, I am thinking my chance of getting Chagas would be pretty slim. It did sting initially, but my wife made a baking powder paste that I put my finger in that got rid of the pain. Today other than a tiny red dot on my finger it is like it never happened.

    Quote from odd man out: “I've been to one Buffet concert. That was back in the early '80s during his Volcano tour. I remember he had animated palm trees on state that would move in time with the music. Lots of fun. ” Pretty neat when they play it in his restaurant too.

    Quote from odd man out: “OK, I have a question for you baseball experts. It seems to me that when a batter hits a fly ball down the base line and a fielder catches the ball very close to the line, the umpire always makes a point to call it as a fair ball (out) or a foul ball (out). Why does it matter if it is fair or foul? ” Perhaps he is just practicing. He has to be ready to make the call in case the fielder drops it. And with instant replay in MLB you never know what might be overturned.

    My recommendation would be: Year 1 April/May 825 miles Year 2 May/June 825 miles Year 3 July/August 540 miles Believe me there is no comparison between the difficulty of the first 1790 miles and the last 400. So please do not think you can chop it into 3 equal sections. This will still give you 140 miles to get your legs before things start getting tougher.
