AS such it was time for the locals to drive like idiots. Cutting in and out of traffic at 70+. Texting while blazing pst me at 70+. pulling in fron of me at 50 while im pushing 65.


my mom was complaining on stalkbook about having to drive to bakersfield in the rain today.

in other news, new englander's continue to forge ahead with the ice on the roads.

Got 2-3 inches of snow/sleet/freezing rain today. I worked in it for 7 hours and then drove 2.5 hours home. The only time I felt unsafe was when other cars were near me on the road. People need to get their shit together.


always amazed at a person's inability to drive in snow. easiest way to learn is to go to doughnuts in a parking lot for about 30min. seriously, best fucking lesson on what could possibly happen if you do this...etc.

So true. Once you know how hard you can push a vehicle and what to do/not to do when you slide, it's all pretty straight forward.

Sadly temps and precip are not good for me to do recon work on the steep OW. Still cant find any info in guidebooks or online. Possible FA??


Probably not given how long people have been frequenting this crag but ya never known.

given how many people climb stuff and never tell anyone about it, I am always highly suspicious of FA opportunities.

Yep. I just look at that stuff as a true onsight and am happy for the experience.

It's always funny to find a piton halfway up an undocumented, chossy 5.9 pitch in the middle of nowhere though. You just have to laugh.

Headed back to Old Rag after all. 37 degrees, mostly sunny, 3mph winds. Might only do some bouldering and recon work but it's better than sitting inside...

In other news, I'm so far behind in my paperwork that bossman told me to stay home monday and get caught up. I'm not sure my annual evaluation is going to be so hot this year. Unimpressed

I was also, unintentionally of course, responsible for an explosion, fireball, building evacuation and visit from the fire department on Friday. Turns out if you close the supply and return line valves while the boiler is running, you can blow a seal and cause a fire! Thankfully the resulting fire was relatively small and could be put out with a single fire extinguisher.

Now, in my defense, I was told by the guy who scheduled the work that the fuel oil tank was for backup purposes only and expressly gave me permission to close the valves. My mistake was assuming he knew what the fuck he was talking about.

Oooo! New reason to bitch and moan today. I have a meeting with the school board to prepare for my son's entry this fall.

Here begins the uphill battle for a full time EA
Good luck with all that.
We've been through some of that with our older 2. But looks like our 2nd is now up to speed and will be just regular classes no more individual teaching.
But I'm guessing that yours will be a little more involved than mine. Hopefully your uphill fight will be easy.

Looks ok... Most of the other parents at the meeting were there because their 4 year old has ADHD...

Who dafuk diagnoses a 4 year old with ADHD?! Boys are supposed to be rowdy and distracted

Haha! There's a brown-point story for you! Laugh

Maybe it's best to stay the night at Old Rag, you know, just to be sure the paperwork doesn't catch fire. (btw - paperwork catching fire is a great way to not have to do paperwork, and to collect unemployment to be used for a road trip)

you know, i believe this. it's not really true in Maine but it's getting there, mostly because there are more and more Massachusetts drivers moving to Maine to retire or driving there to ski (I know, I know who skis and doesn't know how to drive in snow - seriously).

I think there is a weird generational shift going on. I think people are becoming so dependent on things like their smart phones and computers and stuff that people simply don't learn how to do things that still need to be done, such as driving in the snow.

working on the latest project. It'll be six canvases in total (my first piece of "art" really, if you want to say that. everything else thus far has been an observational painting) and each canvas will have about seven steps taking a total of at least two to three weeks each.

I'm having a lot of fun with this. damn, I love this. why I didn't discover this sooner I'll never know.

fuck this is fun.

Although that was gone later and today. Unimpressed

Go get a massage. They do wonders for soreness and post injury pain relief. Well worth the money.
Been thinking about that. The pain has moved on from strain pain to tightness. So thats a good sign.
One of the things I keep hearing is the abs need to be strengthened. The Y has a couple machines for working the abs. Need to start hitting the Y for them and just everything in general.

Yea funny that. I not heard why it does that. My guess would be that the fual air mixture gets so oxygen rich momentarily that it causes an explosion. But I have heard of this before.
Oh, and good luck with the annual review...

Went to old rag but there was snow on everything so we just bouldered. Didn't even make it up high enough to do recon on the OW. Did find some nice boulders and new projects. Snowy topouts were sketch though.

Thats very possible. I'm just glad it didn't compromise the boiler itself. That could have been epic.

Rude awakening this morning... Apparently it's winter

-20C out here

fucking gorgeous 70F here with a nice breeze out of the south east, partly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain in the afternoon, and a 0% chance I'm wearing socks to the Exxon english evaluations I have to do later.
Well teh winter reigns have returned after taking most of Jan off. Not uncomon.
AS such it was time for the locals to drive like idiots. Cutting in and out of traffic at 70+. Texting while blazing pst me at 70+. pulling in fron of me at 50 while im pushing 65.


my mom was complaining on stalkbook about having to drive to bakersfield in the rain today.

in other news, new englander's continue to forge ahead with the ice on the roads.

Hey!

Stay in your hemisphere! Mad

Sadly temps and precip are not good for me to do recon work on the steep OW. Still cant find any info in guidebooks or online. Possible FA??


Probably not given how long people have been frequenting this crag but ya never known.

given how many people climb stuff and never tell anyone about it, I am always highly suspicious of FA opportunities.

Yep. I just look at that stuff as a true onsight and am happy for the experience.

It's always funny to find a piton halfway up an undocumented, chossy 5.9 pitch in the middle of nowhere though. You just have to laugh.
I've had that happen too often. Though the kicker is talking to everyone to figure out who actually did it.

There are a handful of usual suspects in VA and WV. I just assume it was one of those old bastards.
