Crossing a huge body of wilderness often involves a question of returning back to your car.  This itinerary suggests such a crossing, if you have one car, one bike and 3 nights to spend in the woods.  At no point you are required to carry your tent and your sleeping bag on your back.  Instead, you will stay two nights in a campground and one night in the hut, where they have beds and blankets. New Hampshire White Mountains are only 2 hours from Boston (140 miles to Lincoln, NH).  They are close enough and large enough to explore several times a year. Here is a bird-eye view of your itinerary:…

07-11 First picture of the day

  July 3, Wednesday Around 13:30 on Wednesday things seemed slow enough at work that I saw an opportunity to make an early start for the White Mountains.  I quickly gathered all the things, and departed by 15:00. Around 15:20 a phone call caught me on route 128, and I made a stop on a Rest Area to connect to work and do some fixes.  The connection was unusually slow, and I couldn’t get close to the windows (for better signal) because of the sun.  Around 16:46 I was done, traffic became a solid menace by this time.  Instead of braving the traffic for several hours on the way to New Hampshire, I decided to…

Only in America – Talking and Lying Icons (or eat a live armadillo)

eat a live armadillo

I was very surprised to learn that in America icons can talk.  For some reason, no one was amazed or shocked.  Who cares what icon had to say, the surprise is that it can talk at all.  Wow! Some technology advancements America have.  But can you imagine my total amazement several days later when this very patriotic icon was caught in lie?  Only in America you can have a true talking icon that can lie right to your face.  That is truly magical. Now it is up to scientist to determine if this was a true icon or just a mummy.  Because obviously, if this was a mummy, then you can suspect…

  [Sat, 20 Oct 2012 12:36] Пришло время поздравлять нашего папу с 80-летием. Поздравляем! Пришло время задавать вопросы.  Теперь уже не только время, но настоятельное желание узнать правду. (1) Не упустили ли мы что-то без религии? (2) Есть ли правда на дне научного поиска? (3) Трое детей – это много, мало или в самый раз? (4) Когда было лучше и интереснее – до 1953, до 1985 или сейчас? Все, все хотелось бы узнать в такой эпохальной перспективе. Поздрявляем еще раз, Сын С . . .  из Бостона     [Tue, 23 Oct 2012 21:59:29 +0400] Привет, С . . .  Бостонский!   Ну что ж, давайте отвечать на кардинальные вопросы, которые вдруг встали…
