Cracks me up when folks call San Francisco "Northern California." Not only is it geographically incorrect...but there is soooooo much more up there. Oh well, more for me I suppose.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Man.||
I really need to make it up there soon. Thinking about doing a big loop through Oregon the next time I get a long weekend and hitting the big spots. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, Crater Lake, Bend and Portland are all on my list. Might need to split it up though, or just take some vacation time. If you've got some under-the-radar spots you don't mind giving up to a random dude on the internet I'm all ears.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||It's phenomenal.||
I moved up here for work recently, and have completely fallen in love with the Alps. So many endless trails and epic scenery - rivaling some of the best spots in the Sierra, IMO - and it's remote enough that it keeps the crowds down aside from a few of the flagship trails. Plus, this is only one wilderness area of several in the area, including the coastal redwoods. And I haven't even crossed into Oregon yet. I think I'm gunna like it up here.

Heading out to the Trinity Alps in NW CA. This will be my home for the next few days. cantwait.gif

This statement really doesn't say anything other than "OK I heard you already. For the love of God please stop sending me emails!"

Mike Leach would have come back to win.

As my username suggests, I live in Lubbock and was a grad student at Tech during the final Leach years. DO. WANT.

And I will most certainly drive to the Permian basin for Oberon or Bell's on tap.

Back in my day, I walked 15 miles to my classes through 8 feet of snow. While being chased by a rabid polar bear. And by golly, I made it to every one 10 minutes early. Damned kids are so pampered these days.

Just started watching and I am really struggling not to go on an all-out binge.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Yeah.||
I mean, I didn't like Joe D's decision to pass on Burke, but this team is a train wreck regardless of whether Jennings is running the point or not. Watching Josh Smith shoot threes is like watching a 2013 Michigan tailback pick up a 3rd and short.
What? Too soon?
|2 years 32 weeks ago||So...||
does this mean we gon' be SEC?
|2 years 32 weeks ago||But...||
what about decided schematic advantage?
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Decided. Schematic. Advantage.||
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Never change, Fran.||
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Man.||
Twitter is on fire today, you guys.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||I didn't...||
but it's a good move. I wouldn't mind a road trip to Tempe.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||Guns up!||
Trust me when I say though, that TTU is currently conjuring up a way to lose this game as we speak. So, so far from being a done deal.
|2 years 34 weeks ago||My goodness.||
|2 years 34 weeks ago||And not just Texas...||
...but way out in the middle of the high plains of West Texas. Good luck to you in your quest for BWB. For what it's worth, this magical experience is worth the 2 or 3 hour drive to Grand Rapids if you do not succeed. The clock is ticking and I'm sure it won't last much longer.
Merry Christmas, and cheers!

Today, I went to my local beer store in Lubbock, TX in search of a few christmas brews. On a whim, I asked if they had ever gotten Founder's Backwoods Bastard in the past. The outstanding associate said that they had, and went in the back and found the last one they had in stock. Thank you sweet baby Santa Jesus for making this the best possible away-from-home Christmas evar.

I think Gary Pinkel should been in the discussion as well. Mizzou and Auburn were similar last season, but Auburn was a hair worse and went one game farther than Mizzou did this season, so kudos to him.

My heart rate reached a level that I don't care to admit.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||Just got out.||
I really liked it. Smaug was incredibly well done from the voice to the CGI.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Welp.||
Then we just disagree completely. I have a hard time evisioning Michigan as a favorite against any of those teams except maaaybe South Carolina. Honestly, there might be 4 or 5 teams at best in the top 25 that we would be favored over on a neutral field... and to me thats a stretch.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Yeah.||
It would require either Hatch coming in as an immediate medical hardship, or possibly the coaches giving Horford the firm handshake... the latter of which seems unlikely unless Horford wants out. Or, like you said, someone unexpected leaves the programs.
|2 years 46 weeks ago||Disagree.||
Do you honestly believe that Michigan is one of the ten best teams in the country? I certainly haven't seen it.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Bummer.||
That really sucks. But, maybe the Lions can put Steve Breaston to work. Or maybe Braylon?
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Really?||
I kinda thought their QB looked pretty good. Their defense is suspect but they've come a long way from Kill's first season.
|2 years 50 weeks ago||My God.||
Suh with a classic stupid penalty... followed by a pick. Why am I watching this again?
