  1. Maybe people should do what works for them. Instead of being judgmental, we could respect freedom of choice.

    Via Ferrata

    Anyone ever done this? I'm told it's in my future. https://www.jhnewsandguide.com/sports/outdoors/climbing-via-ferratas-is-dol-o-mite/article_903db54e-9f85-50ab-8fc7-260521e572aa.html
  3. That seems crazy. New ones start under $25k. Why would you pay $30k for a used one. https://www.mazdausa.com/shopping-tools/build-and-price?semid=66009657085&providertag=MazdaSEM&servicetag=66009657085&k_keyword=mazda cx30&k_matchtype=e&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7vz6l7W9-QIVQj2tBh0UnQAsEAAYASABEgJ5K_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#/22C30 https://www.cars.com/shopping/results/?dealer_id=&keyword=&list_price_max=&list_price_min=&makes[]=mazda&maximum_distance=50&mileage_max=&models[]=mazda-cx_5&page_size=20&sort=list_price&stock_type=used&year_max=&year_min=2019&zip=55405

    Minimum wage

    it's this that I have a problem with. The idea that we need some people to make less so that the rest of us can have cheap stuff. “Low-income workers are going to be key to making sure restaurants are open seven days a week, same with retail,” Aadland said. “They’re critically important in terms of keeping companies here [and] keeping the vast majority of workers here.”
  5. So just to be clear, it's not just about the people. Getting too close to wildlife stresses them. It's not good for them.

    Minimum wage

    JH essentially has it's own unwritten min wage. Our local paper has 10-12 pages of want ads. You can't hire unless you offer a competitive wage. The rest of the state needs to get on board.

    Minimum wage

    Full story Yikes, $5.15 is embarrassing. The local Target is starting people at $24/hr. I don't think any local business pays less than $15/hr Wyoming’s minimum wage is $5.15 an hour, tied with Georgia for the national low, according to the study. This means the state defaults to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour — last adjusted in 2009. This quote doesn't make sense to me. Pay people shit so others can benefit? Aadland explained that low earners are critical to providing amenities that draw companies and people to the area and create economic growth. “Low-income workers are going to be key to making sure restaurants are open seven days a week, same with retail,” Aadland said. “They’re critically important in terms of keeping companies here [and] keeping the vast majority of workers here.”
  8. Full story The bull elk was standing in the rain, grazing, when Adam Collins pulled into the parking lot Friday to see the Chapel of the Sacred Heart in Grand Teton National Park. The 44-year-old visitor from Glen Ellyn, Illinois, stopped the car, and got out to take a few photos, making sure to keep his distance as the elk moved toward the Teton Park road. But other people didn’t, including one man who went out on the road, started taking pictures and inching closer and closer to the elk. As Collins watched, that man got within 10 feet of the hoofed and horned ungulate. That’s when the elk appeared to decide it wasn’t having it. “He kneeled down on one knee to take a picture and the elk turned, reared up and started charging him,” Collins said. The man split, running backwards through a grove of four trees to avoid getting gored. The elk got within 5 feet of the man, Collins said, but his decision to run through the trees turned out to be a good one. The elk stopped on one side. The man kept running.
  9. Good luck with the van DH. JH mtbing next summer? My friends just built a Ford Transit. I changed my mind on building a Transit Connect or Promaster City.
  10. School starts after labor day here.
  11. I like big tires and I cannot lie.... Meet Bud and Edna
  12. I have to admit I don't understand stickers. I have a million, everyone gives me a sticker. I don't know what to do with them. The only sticker I need is a new parking sticker and I refuse to buy one. How can I make one? The two coolest stickers I've owned are ones for finishing Trans-Iowa and the Arrowhead 135. The TI sticker said TI 336.4. Nobody understood it and I liked that.
  13. For bikepacking, I carry nuun. I tend to grab water from streams and filter it so at a little nuun can help the flavor. Bikepacking rides can be 5-10 hours so I need some electrolytes. For rides three hours or more from home I use Scratch.
  14. Overdramatic? You funny. Saturday's dinner. Recipe from the NYT. It was so good, we made it on Sunday as well.
