Preface: Over 10 Years ago, I was pacing around while listening to my headphones, as I always have during a caffeine bender. I would go into a different world while listing to music. To this day I fantasize along with songs, making my thoughts relevant to the music. After imagining a few new scenes, I decided to write down […]
Climbing Single Ropes
Since there’s nothing outside of sports, TCM and PBS worth watching on TV, and since I’m paying outrageous sums for cable anyway, I have started watching (free) On-Demand movies through my cable provider (Comcast). I don’t like most of what Hollywood has churned out over the last 20 or 30 years, and believe me when […]
“We returned to my favorite neighborhood overpriced cocktail bar, Prozac Balcony (yes, that is the real name of the bar).”
With no way to retreat from the rampaging mob, Selane and company find themselves faced with hard choices.
Friday, 07/19/2019 16:03 clock Suddenly an engine howls behind us, just under 4700 meters above sea level. Our mountaineering group is currently working up the climb to the Pastuchov rocks, an acclimatization tour on Elbrus. All japsen because of the thin air. While we toil up laboriously, a snowmobile shoots past us: Behind the driver […]
100 push ups, 100 squat, 100 sit-ups & a 10k run, everyday for 3 years. ^^ That is what Saitama did to become the worlds strongest man, if only it was that easy in real life. In most anime shows you’ll find that training is consistent, with purpose and drive. Now training daily is something […]
Many climbers have asked just how legal these climbing “bans” in the Grampians are. It’s an interesting question and worth exploring in detail. Much of the vagueness in Parks Victoria’s press releases and public statements reveal just how grey it really is – and we are sure they know it.
We took a short trip to Hawaii during our spring break and stayed with our cousins. What’s great about staying at the Windward side of Oahu is the fabulous views and there’s no better place to see this than hiking the Lanikai Pillbox. (Also known as the Kaiwa Ridge Trail). When you arrive here, you […]
07/07/2019 They’re Girls, they wrestle in Sendai… It’s the SENDAI GIRLS!!!!! I am really happy that I am starting to seek out more of this promotion and take in some of the stories and the talent that they have. Like I have said in previous blogs, this group isn’t the best in Japan, but they […]
The estate itself put into our world’s context would be small. Nothing like the sprawl of green and brown further than the eye could see. Even so, it took up a major portion of the city, enough to make up perhaps a twentieth of the land. Studying it was a risk in and of itself, […]
After a year, less one week, of living off-grid (indeed largely ‘off-power’) on Gometra, I begin this piece, hoping to finish it in time to mark the anniversary. We arrived just three weeks before the start of the Scottish Autumn term (August 16th 2018), having waited until the end of the English Summer term (July […]
This is more of a rant than my normal posts! So I am currently job-hunting after nearly eight months off work. Seven months of those months were spent travelling and one month was spent having two holidays. I am now in the process of meeting recruiters and am having to explain that eight month ‘gap on […]
As a follow up to our rock climbing courses, we have created this post to remind people of some of the skills taught on the course.
Welcome to this weeks RAW report, delivering of course the fallout from the prior nights Extreme Rules Pay Per View, one that ended incredibly for the pairing of Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch….to a point. While Becky officially left as RAW Women’s Champion, a meddlesome Brock Lesnar ensured he would take away Seth Rollins Universal […]
