re: The Expanse Season 5 - hogfly
[quote]And it killed about 15 billion people in the book. I don't know why the show is trying to whitewash this.[/quote] Yeah, that's a pretty big deviation, because the whole impetus for Marco and why it's such an audacious maneuver, is that he's intentionally making Earth uninhabitable and kill...

re: Where would you go backpacking in early April between NM and Texas? - hogfly
[quote]on a two day 13 mile hike we took in big bend in October the two of us each packed three 2L bladders of water and it was just enough. We used one whole bladder cooking dinner and making coffee which I did not calculate properly the hike in was pretty rough carrying all that weight[/quote] ...

Really gorgeous rock formations riding strikingly out of flat desert. And the high altitude forests up top are very cool. It’s a dramatic place with incredible views that look out over flat earth. ...

re: Where would you go backpacking in early April between NM and Texas? - hogfly
Be aware that Guadalupe is dry with no water up on the mountain, which can present difficulty for multiple day backpacking trips. It’s really awesome though. Gila would be cool. Don’t do White Sands for backpacking. Definitely worth a day and possibly a single overnight, but it would get old IMO...

re: In keeping theme, the publisher of Arkansas Dem-Gazette is a member of Bohemian Grove - hogfly
My father in law repeatedly talks about his service at the tomb of the unknown soldier (not sure that is even accurate) and how they don’t just let anybody do that duty... and he respects him because of that. ...

[quote]Kind of like why the RINO SwampHawk Tom Cotton did what he did two weeks ago. Rumor is he's a total fruitcake and Bildeberg bro. So he does what he's told.[/quote] :lol: As much as I dislike Cotton, his stance on that issue was completely logical and in line with his politics and his e...

re: Family Trip - Western Mountains - hogfly
I'll throw out Crested Butte as another option in that general area. Pretty much everything that there is to do in other mountain towns. I like Salida and Buena Vista as well. Durango is awesome, too, but it's been a while since I"ve been. ...

re: Minnesota - places to see, things to do? - hogfly
Also, here are some pics from my wife of Big Lake and the Boundary Waters. They're all photostacks on Instagram, so there's multiple photos on each post. Her photos are pretty awesome, imo. [link=(https://www.instagram.com/p/CC6BCoCJa9M/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link)]Big Lake Post[/link] [link=...

re: Minnesota - places to see, things to do? - hogfly
If you want to get off the beaten path, Big Lake Wilderness Lodge near Ely is pretty awesome. It's adjacent to the Boundary Waters and is one of the few lakes in the area to allow motors. Main attraction is fishing. No skiing or anything of that nature. It's rustic and remote, and you can easily day...

re: The Expanse Season 5 - hogfly
[quote]I thought they dragged out the scene for too long and that placed it in the not possible realm. The show is all about science, but she should have jettison earlier. Maybe the miracle shot will be explained[/quote] The book, if I remember correctly, accounts for all of that science. She ...

Been on Chubby and the Gang for a year or so. Listened to it tonight while cleaning up after dinner. Really great punk. Not pop punk but some other stuff: Bully Charley Bliss The Beths (first album)...

re: The Expanse Season 5 - hogfly
[quote]Holden is so boring. Other than him, everything about this show is great. [/quote] He's much better in the books. I think they do a better job of capturing what a principled White Knight he is and how his black/white morality becomes increasingly difficult to maintain as situations get mo...

re: Navy SEALS Books - hogfly
Haha. No. I work in education (founded and lead a high school). By “team” I just meant my team at work. I do love SEALs though and know a few. They’re a different breed. ...

It's Sons of Anarchy on horses. That was my initial take, and imagine my surprise when I found out the writer, Taylor Sheridan, was also on Sons of Anarchy....

re: Navy SEALS Books - hogfly
If you're wanting to read about missions and such, then he's not really the answer, but Jocko's podcast (or just listen to some other podcasts he's appeared on like Tim Ferriss or Joe Rogan) is solid. Extreme Ownership is also a good read for organizations/teams and leaders. My team read it and g...

re: Oaxaca travel, covid restrictions, beach towns - hogfly
No information on current COVID-related conditions down there... but I'm jealous. Wife and I went for a quick anniversary trip a couple of years ago, and I'm dying to get back. One of my favorite places we've ever been....

re: The Breakers - Palm Beach - hogfly
Shopping won’t be a problem. Downtown Palm is nothing but insanely expensive boutiques (like Balenciaga stores and such). Royal Poinsietta is cool as well with good shops and food. You could be perfectly happy for a few days just sampling what the Breakers has to offer, but there is also good food ...

re: The Breakers - Palm Beach - hogfly
It’s very, very nice as is all of Palm Beach. Lots of rich, East coast high society snowbirds and families stay there and frequent the area in general. We are at Palm Beach currently and come down fairly regularly. What sort of recs are you looking for? Check out the Lake Trail if you want a place t...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - hogfly
I tried hi previous adult trilogy, the Lotus Wars, and it didn't pull me in the same way. I only made it through the first book and am switching over to something else. He really grew a lot as a writer between the Lotus Wars and Nevernight. It could also be that I'm suffering from recency bias becau...
