    Quote from jimmyjam: “I can hardly believe it. Skins beat the Cowboys!!!!!! Bbbbblllllrrrrttttt!!!! ” I was gone all day and just now catching up on the day's action. Good day for a MI resident who grew up in DC. Lions and Skins win. Boys an Bears loose (both in spectacular fashion).

  • A water bottle is cheap. Shipping water is not cheap. Water bottles pro idea water for a few minutes. Filters provide water for a few months. Water from a bottle is available in seconds. From a filter it is available in minutes. Once empty, a water bottle becomes garbage. With a filter, it can be used indefinitely. My filter has no moving parts to break and can be back flushed if clogged. So the one advantage left for water bottled is they are superior for those of us who can't follow directions…

  • One thing I've never figured out is why disaster relief agencies invest tremendous resources to ship and distribute truck/plane loads of water bottles instead of a box of water filters.

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Funny thing about weight loss... I stayed on the same number for 5 days(?) despite eating healthy and keeping my calorie count low(ish). Yesterday was so stressful that I didn’t care what I ate, had chicken nuggets, half a sandwich, and a small bag of potato chips for lunch. Then for dinner, ate a double bacon cheeseburger and cheese curds from Culver’s. This morning, I weighed less, ” This is my weight loss program includes weighing yourself every morning (after I pee) …

  • 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 are lots of filter that don't involve pumps, are lightweight, have no moving parts and easily backflushed, don't you." But then I don't bother.

    Quote from max.patch: “finally...truth in advertising! ” Excellent. Both of my parents are from NE. As a kid growing up in MD, I spent many summer vacations visiting relatives on the farm in NE. What I have found is that most people's knowledge of NE doesn't extend beyond the 2 mile wide strip of land you can see from I80 as you drive hour after hour across the state. 99% of the state does not look like that. I recently learned something curious about NE. About 10 miles south of Mullen (pop 450)…

    I've had my DNA tested. I'm zero percent native American and 100% Swedish. So I don't have to lie about my Swedish heritage to use it to my advantage the way the Trump family does.

    Quote from Astro: “I used to live in Singapore and loved it. Hard to imagine some leaving there and wanting to go to Newark. ” I take it back. EWR-SIN is the longest flight. SIN-EWR is 40 minutes faster due to a tail wind. I guess if you're flying to EWR, it just SEEMS longer. Lucky you getting to spend time in Singapore. I keep thinking that I will go trekking in Nepal someday and the trip could easily involve a long layover in Singaore (or Hong Kong, or Bangkok, or Istanbul, or Abu Dhabi...)

    We have a piece of the Berlin Wall in our local public museum.. One striking thing you should observe (if you ever see a large intact section) is that one side is covered in grafitti and one side is blank. You could walk up to and paint the west side. If you walked up to the east side you were shot.

    yup, pack plus contents, no consumables. However some people may also include things in their pockets. If you are like me, you carry lots of stuff in your pockets. It's one to decrease your base weight. Wear all your clothes and fill your pockets.

    I have over the years encountered many variations on cooked cranberry and raw cranberry relish, but after trying many styles, I have to say that nothing beats the simplest basic recipe of one cup of sugar, one cup of water, one bag of cranberriers, boil until they are all popped. Smash with a potato smasher, cool, eat. I love the popping sound they make as they come to a boil, and then just a few second later there they go from hard berries to mush, almost instantly. So much fun making cranberry…
