Haha! No idea either. Just having fun with you, I figure.

It has been some time. Since our last regular communication, I’ve had a couple of kids. A boy (5) and a girl (3). They both literally and figuratively kick me in the balls daily.

Good times.

Jon, I’m doing quite well, how about you? I always loved the RS pictures you put up, but damned if I can remember how it started. Old age I guess!

Tom, hope all is well in your world. Calexico informed me some of the old knuckleheads popped up over here. Nice to see some familiar names.

Doug, shit man. So sorry to hear about your daughter. I cannot imagine how horrible that must be for you and your family.

Doug mentions riding his bike then goes silent. Seems oddly familiar somehow...

Doug, so sorry to hear about your daughter. I truly can't imagine it or conceive of how I'd handle that. I only hope I'd do as well as you appear to have.

Still following the football? I miss those conversations, seems I'm being a European football fan in a void. I guess I have Sporting KC locally, but MLS still pales compared to the big leagues in Europe.

Tom!! Hope all is well. I've actually been talking to a cop in Clark County, IN for some 9-1-1 stuff. Isn't that across the river from you? I think of you whenever he calls me.

Do any of the Facebookers here know what Marius is doing? Is he in to politics now? I confess I never bother with the translate button on his FB posts.

I miss Ben. <sigh>

Doug, work is work, ya know? Just a means to an end for me. That end has been more and longer hikes. Our last long one was 160ish miles in the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness in CO. Some albums if you are bored:

I'm just doing it on a Weber kettle with a Slow and Sear, but it gets the job done. I've done a couple of briskets that turned out really nice for first tries and ribs and pork shoulders of course. I really enjoy doing hot indirect cooks making wings and fried chicken. I found a fake KFC breading that comes out really good doing the indirect high heat. Looking forward to being able to stand for longer periods of time so I can do another shoulder and a brisket.

Rich, good to hear you’re still kicking, bum leg and all. The long cooks can be a challenge but I have three smokers, two of which are great for overnight cooks. Takes about an hour for the cooking temp to settle in and then they just do their thing overnight while I sleep.

Doug, I know you and I don’t have a history of camaraderie like you do with some others here, but as a father of daughters I feel compelled to let you know that my heart goes out to you. I simply cannot imagine. May you find comfort and love in everything you do.

Rich! Great to hear, er I mean read your voice. I appreciate it. She did so well for so long, but her boyfriend slipped and she followed. The unknown fentanyl addition took her but not him. She dealt with bipolar type 1, rheumatoid arthritis and addiction, as you know, for a long time. 6 years clean, but it isn’t easy.
We haven’t backpacked in years but plenty of hiking and car camping. Thank you, my friend. Nature is the best cure.
