This blog, that is. I’ve been fine – just busy. Really, really busy.
A rash of Rhino work coincided with the new hiking guide. I had to hold down my day job in the new economy (almost as much work – fewer people to do it) and hike while the hiking was good.
So a lot of things didn’t get done. This was one of them.
What have we learned since May 9th?
Many things – too many to list here. A handful of highlights:
No rebounds – no rings.
With blog updates, you get what you pay for. If you don’t pay the writers (I’m looking at you Examiner) all the jazzier new interface improvements won’t help you.
TV is the enemy of productivity – even more than cute animals or beer.
Twenty extra minutes checking the gear at the house can save you six wasted hours on the trail.
And clean you camera lens once in a while.
There might well be a real quality difference between lenses from your optometrist vs lenses bought online, but there can’t be a 250% difference. I’ll know soon.
Put the campfire out all the way out – every time.
Pride is expensive. It’s the difference between a couple hundred dollars over a week, or nearly a thousand dollars over three days.
Once you realize you’re screwed – get help. No one appreciates, or is impressed by your stoic failure.
