I clocked in with a 10:40 minute/mile pace. Not too bad. Next year! Hopefully, photos will be up soon.
Finished a few moment ago. I won’t know the results until Monday, but I had a great time. I’m not hurting – which means I didn’t push hard enough. There’s always next year!
3.5 hellish miles. Warrior Dash is like a mud run, but for “warriors.” There will also be “music, beer, warrior helmets and muddy shorts.” Hopefully, I’ll get two more jogs in before the event.
Just kidding. The folks answering the phone weren’t too bad and were able to provide me the related language I needed to research information on how to go about reviewing firearms from manufacturers. Key word? Consultant-evaluator. I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY. With a valid Certificate of Eligibility, photo ID, a letter from importer, manufacturer or […]
PS. There’s a 3.6 gram daily limit for pseudoephedrine, ephedrine, or phenylpropanolamine; 9 grams every 30 days. Each tablet contains 30 mg.I’m 5 years behind, but it’s dumb. I’m glad my allergies aren’t half bad.
I read Yancey Harrington’s LMS Defense blog article on a “different kind of trauma kit.” Based on opinions and direction of Mike Griffin of Austere Provisions Company, Harrington provided a great overview and why you should have some over-the-counter drugs with you. I visited the local drug store and grabbed everything I needed. I initially […]
Bear Creek Falls and Traverse Creek Falls. Probably the slowest 2.6 miles ever. We made an attempt to avoid planting our faces against rocks and landing on our bums by taking our sweet time navigating through this hike. Both of us managed to get ourselves wet. At one point, I used my face as a […]
Though it’s not an official theme, it might as well be. I was going to make trout with a brown butter sauce recipe this evening; however, I couldn’t find any trout. I went with a pierogi recipe instead. The stuffing tasted good on its’ own; however, it was on the bland side with the dumpling […]
Quick. Easy. Delicious. I’m not quick like Ramsay is, so I cut up the shallots, mushrooms and potatoes before I prepped the meat. I used unsalted butter instead, but I still need to add less salt next time. See ingredients and recipe here (PDF).
I had the intent to hike Rock Creek Falls; however, I didn’t feel comfortable hiking alone due to weather conditions and other safety concerns related to the area. Elevation at that location is only 2600 ft. and I have yet to run into anyone at Eldorado National Forest, but I wasn’t about to take any […]
I made a penny stove out of Heineken beer cans this weekend. The outcome went well; however, I haven’t measured it’s efficiency yet. I’m currently using yellow HEET for fuel. Going to attempt to find denatured alcohol or Everclear when I can find it.
I tried this recipe this evening and it turned out very well. I couldn’t find any red chili peppers, so I substituted it with green chili peppers instead. The market didn’t have any pork chops with the fat on it. I just picked up any variety so as long as it had the bone. Surprisingly, […]
