A Job Done Poorly is Worse than Doing Nothing at All.

A few months ago it was suggested that an older drop in stove be replaced with a slide in stove. I looked at the issue, took a few measurements and concluded that it was going to be a complete nightmare…if at all possible. Fast forward to today; the stove debate is now going strong. So…

Coding, Hiking and the quest for Simplicity.

It’s been a while since I last posted and I am sorry about that. The truth is I write this blog as a simple vent of thoughts and emotions rather than a constant stream of Facebook updates and rants. This gives me an outlet without the sometimes negative or frustrating comments Facebook allows. Onwards and…

40 Miles and an Interview

40 miles and an interview were enough to clarify a few things in our trajectory.  Within my last posting, I highlighted several potential options. It seems many of those pretty well cleared up themselves leaving a future that still seems very murky. Let’s start with the employment area as it seems rather funny in a…

Options for the Summer and beyond

Our time here in PA is coming to a close. We, or at least I have been here about two weeks (one of which I had the nasty flu which I am still suffering with), and I’m getting more frustrated and antsy by the day.  PA, especially southern PA is not my choice of places…

The Standards of Loss and Letting Go

Over the past few months, I have been drifting away, but let’s step back to the past few years. 10 Years ago when I was 27 years old I was hopeful towards the future, I was able to secure jobs easily and felt I had plenty of time to do everything I wanted. I loved…

The Collective Intelligence Issue

I’ve recently had the pleasure of section hiking a part of the Appalachian Trail and one of the best ways to pass the time as you place one foot ahead of the other is to think. Think about yourself, others, philosophy, and the future. During this walk, I ran into many different people. Some seemed…

Outerbanks Adventure

Sometimes life forces an unexpected path, a path that was planned now becomes a dream unfulfilled, or at least a modification must be made to realign with reality. Upon departing from the Redneck Rivera, or Myrtle Beach as it’s also known we decided to return north via the Outer Banks. Our intended route; the extent…

What have I become…..

I finished a book yesterday and I am hesitant to start another as I’m leaving to the Outer Banks tomorrow so figured I would spend some time debating on Facebook. Not my favorite activity but after walking my 8 miles already today and playing with the dog I figured it would be a good distraction….

Final Visit to BrookGreen

With our time here coming to an end, I felt it important to pay one last visit to the beautiful oasis of Brookgreen. So much life has emerged since my last visit.

Books have Replaced Facebook

I’ve finally found out why Facebook has been a crux for so long in my life. I have used it, in part, to live vicariously through other people. I would find a place I wanted to live, visit or found interesting. I would locate people there that I liked and send dozens of friend requests…

A few shots from March 26th 2017

I’ve been enjoying my Fuji x100s. There is something liberating about being able to simply shoot photos and not care about lenses, raw vs jpeg or dozens of additional settings. Just shoot and go. The guy at the bottom is from VT, he has a 10-mile range with that chair and he has been an…
