re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - hogfly
Lucked out and checked the local library for Greatcoats. They had all 4 books in (which is rare right now with COVID). Reserved all 4 and picked them up yesterday. Tore through the first one yesterday, woke up at 3am with insomnia and finished it this morning. Now on to the rest of them. Definitely ...

re: Any goof crime fiction novels set in Louisana? - hogfly
If you're interested in the Dixie Mafia, watch "Quarry" sometime. I'm not sure if the books upon which they're loosely based by Max Allan Collins are also set in the South or not. I don't think they were. ...

re: Utah for Thanksgiving - hogfly
[quote]I am looking at taking the wife and kids to Utah in November. We've never been out west and we have a specific couple of things we want to see in Utah. However, those are half day things. We are not skiers. I tore my ACL in '13 and the wife just has no interest. The kids may. How are the nati...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - hogfly
So I'm on Book 4 (Blood Mirror) of the Lightbringer series. I still love the series, but it's like Brent Weeks got obsessed with sex or something during Book 4. I know some of it is natural to Kip's storyline and development (and all of the Mighty), but it's also in other storylines as well (Gavi...

re: Winter Park, Co Trip - hogfly
Thanks for all the answers and indulging me! Glad you and your son got to experience it together. It's such a great activity and more and more places are investing in trails. Come check our the Arkansas trails some time. Hot Springs is closer to you and has some awesome stuff, but the real goods are...

re: Winter Park, Co Trip - hogfly
Sounds like an awesome trip. Being out West in the mountains in the summer is so hard to beat. I'd like to hear more about your MTB experience. Do you all MTB regularly when not on vacation? If not: did you find it comparable to going out for a day of skiing? If you were on vacation a...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - hogfly
Yeah, I've really just come back around to fantasy. I was a total addict in my youth. I read voraciously, mainly fantasy. I loved reading so much that I majored in English and got a Masters in Literature. I also completely stopped reading fantasy, focusing on Literature (with a capital L). W...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - hogfly
I read Assassin's Apprentice and... it just didn't do it for me. I think it's the point of view/narrator (Fitz reflecting back). It sucks, because I really wanted to enjoy it. I'm a sucker for punishing characters ala GRRM, but Hobbs also kind of screwed Fitz over one time too many for me. An...

re: Which one of you baws is in Gunnison/Crested Butte? - hogfly
Red Lady was open for bikes? My understanding was that they'd not open lift service for bikes this summer. One of our biking friends summers there and said lifts were closed for bikes but that hiking lift was open. Edit: Not sure how people were getting their bikes up (I know some folks are sel...

re: Which one of you baws is in Gunnison/Crested Butte? - hogfly
Evolution Bike Park (the Crested Butte lifts turn to mountain bike use in summer normally) is closed for the year. That's one difference I know. I'm not sure if that's an economic decision or a public health decision. ...
