14 Minutes

A few days ago a female Japanese pilot took off in a Cessna 152 from a Florida airport and didn’t come back.  She apparently had over 400 hours and an instrument rating and was renting the plane in order to build time to get an airline job back in Japan.  Unfortunately her having 400 hours […]

Fourth Time’s The Charm

Just a quick update, two days ago Lonnie Dupre reached the summit of Denali completing the first solo accent ever in January.  While Lonnie was setting foot on the peak my back country buddies and I were in northern Wisconsin for our annual cross country ski weekend.  This weekend started out 29 years ago as […]

Seat Belts, What Are They Good For?

You might be thinking that I’m going to go on and on about how as a Libertarian minded person I’m opposed to “for your own good” laws such as the mandatory seat belt laws.  We could discuss how it’s none of the governments damn business how I live my life and what safety choices and […]

Winter Acent Of Denali

I’ve always loved climbing but aside from some scary but recreational rock climbing and some serious, and sometimes scary, back country climbing on skis I’ve never had the opportunity to do any “real” mountain climbing.  And by “real” I mean something in the 20,000 foot plus range. The thought of spending a month or more […]

I’m Playing Checkers, They’re Playing Chess

As many of you might have noticed I haven’t been posting a whole lot lately.  I’d love to say it’s because I’ve been traveling all over the world having amazing adventures, meeting interesting and exotic people and making tons of money but that’s not the case.  You see the problem is that, boy this is […]
