    If he's in Hollywood, then I'd expect him to look more flashier. More like Mr. Boomtastic himself

    What's this about permanent daylight savings time?

    It all depends on where you are. I would much prefer DST to permanent standard time, out here. Standard time kind of sucks on this side of the time zone. Other places would have different preferences.

    Well, glad your back and alive. Sorry to hear about the injuries but it's not the first time hiking has taken a toll on you. Hiking for 5 weeks is not my cup of tea but what ever floats your boat. Doesn't harm anyone,, except you. lol

    Where did you hike? If it's not a secret.

    btw - if it makes you feel better, I'm on antibiotics too.

    Re: Post Race!

    I was on the Pacific Crest Trail from Donner Summit (don't try the finger food, it's real fingers) up to Ashland Oregon. Half the continent of Europe is over here hiking the trail, too. Guess there was a bit of pent up demand. I felt that at least half the hikers were from the EU, primarily Germany, but several other countries, as well.

    Been over Donner Summit many times. Just @ 3hrs away. I like camping in the Sierra's. You picked a beautiful place to hike.

    Re: Post Race!

    Just south of Donner Summit...well, a ways south, actually...on the PCT, there is a hut called the Benson hut. It's the only place I have ever seen a three story outhouse. You have to climb a ladder to get to the door, which is a split door. That's kind of nice, except you need to be a bit acrobatic to be able to open both halves of the door, swing them wide, all while clinging to a vertical ladder. Then you have to get onto the small platform, and in through the doorway.

    Once inside, you can close the lower half of the door and enjoy the view without anybody else also enjoying the view...or not.

    However, also once inside, a person can admire the ladder that runs up to the roof of the outhouse, while contemplating the situation whereby you'd need to get out through the trapdoor in the roof, a good 20 feet off the ground. It would have been necessary this last winter, since that door would have required quite a bit of digging to get to it.

    You wouldn't want to be south of Donner now. Major fire around Yosemite.

    The term Crest suggests the trail was above the tree line.

    Re: Post Race!

    Apparently, most of the bloody world has figured it out. The PCTA has had to cap permits such that only 50/day can start from the southern end, with different numbers of permits for those starting at different places north of there. No permits were required just a few years ago, then the movie Wild came out, and the numbers soared.

    Re: Post Race!

    Most of what I hiked for the last two weeks is now under mandatory evacuation orders due to a series of fires. At least two fires started along the trail north of where I finished, so my hiking partner also got evacuated on Sunday. She had only made it two and a half days before getting evacuated.

    With more storms in the forecast, more fires are likely to start.

    Meanwhile, I can't smell the smoke, but it has cast a pall over the valley. Orange sunrises, gray/brown air, and all that.

    The good thing is that the high temps should only reach to about 90, today, rather than topping 100. We might even get rain. That would be interesting.

    There's an established trail the whole way. In most places, it's very well maintained, and built to a fairly gentle grade. Old burn scars tend to have lots of blowdowns and brush, but even those are pretty well maintained. There are signs at major road crossings, and perhaps even more signs at minor road crossings.

    A risky sausage, to me. They don't seem to be very consistent. Recipes seem like they can vary more widely than most sausages I've encountered.

    That might be a bit too regional. I've never even heard of boudin, but it sounds like a Cajun-sourced word, so I'm thinking it might be known by a different word elsewhere...or else it's a local thing that hasn't gotten a broader following. If it's the latter, it probably SHOULD get a broader following. Any excellent regional food deserves more recognition.
