They were always going to slow down once school started back up. And then there’s this weird thing that happens to me about the middle of October every school year where I just can’t do anything but deal with school and wait for it to be over. Which it isn’t until April (well — there’s
When I left town at the end of July, that coincided with the drywaller’s schedule. In other words, I timed it so I could be out of the house during what I imagined was going to be a neverending indoor dust cloud. So when I got back from the northwest road trip, I was met
Next up in the project was getting the new window installed. That corner of the house was super-dark, and with the kitchen going in there, it needed a window. I actually tried calling several professionals to see if I could find someone to do this part for me, but no one wanted to :(. I
The house I’m living in was originally built in 1949. At some point, maybe the early-60s, they added on to the back of the house, but rather than adding a room that the house actually (desperately) needed — a master bedroom let’s say — they used the extra space to create the house’s third different
This is a true story. The Contenders Suunto Core All Black ($129.99) Pros It’s all black!

For whatever it’s worth, I have within the last 12 months gone on a dayhike and not reported on it. OTOH, I’m reporting on this one apparently. Richards Hollow Falls is in Richards Hollow (!!), just up the Left-Hand Fork Road in Blacksmith Fork Canyon. These are all places in Cache Valley, a little south
You know, there are people out there who own and maintain blogs for the purpose of building an audience and making money. I do it mostly to make fun of my future self, I think. Or maybe to enable future self to make fun of past self. Whatever. I’m sure there’s mocking involved. The dog
This refers to Highway 50 going across Nevada. I’ve driven lonelier. On this trip I drove lonelier. That stretch from Elko, Nev. to Snowville, Utah, for instance, much lonelier. And uglier. Whatever, I guess. We started this part of the trip in Ely, Nev., which based on my short trip to the one grocery store
To celebrate the end of the school year I left town, which is kind of counterintuitive from the standpoint that Logan is just a lot nicer when all the students leave and things don’t feel quite as crowded. Except on Saturday when all of Franklin County, Idaho comes to town, which is just kind of
