My parents and my sister are going away to Puerto Rico for a week in April.

I've been inspired by the internet so I will replace every photo in the house with pictures of Nicholas Cage and Richards Simmons

Might actually sleep "early"

Curious as to what fans of the show thought of the American remake "Elementary".
Are we talking about the Benedict Cumberbatch Sherlock? If so, I watched it on Netflix on a whim and really enjoyed it.

Ugh.. I don't know why but that just triggered crazy recall from several past winters when we would go up to my buddies cabin in the middle of the woods near Stowe in Vermont with his dad and uncle and "rough it" for a week. We split wood every day for a wood burning stove that heated the cabin, his dad and uncle were big on hunting, so we ate what they caught, mostly and, the highlight and reason the memory, is we would shoot their arsenal of guns into targets we'd fix on trees off the porch. Such a blast. I don't know why shooting is so thrilling. The big guns are fun, but I love shooting a pistol as well. I think everyone (who is sane and fairly self controlled) should go to a shooting range at least once. It's kind of liberating.

Yes. Not a big fisher but I'll go with my cousins every once in awhile upstate to Sacandaga Lake or Lake George. Hudson River isn't bad either.

That sounds incredibly fun. People spend so much money on grand vacations to the Bahamas and whatnot, but I'd much prefer going out into the woods with close friends/family and enjoying the solitude from the outside world.

This is getting too personal too quick Christopher...



I moved out when I was a lad at 15. It's been 5 long years.

*****, you left the ambiguous statement, not me.

I have few boundaries, but never get offended if somebody doesn't want to share something with me.

And now you're going to school and making enough to support yourself...not bad. I probably would've been on the street somewhere. Thinking back on my mental maturity when I was fifteen...scary.

First off, all these asterisks... is that the W word?

boundaries are like ice cream. They melt away after a while. Craving some cookies and cream ice cream. Regretting not picking some up earlier.

I play online poker for a living I introduced my life a while back during the summer when the OT Thread was roaring and you missed it

mehh... I still procrastinate and do nothing all day long on most days so I wouldn't say I've got any kind of handle on things

I agree. I can't stand tropical vacations or packed resorts with cookie cutter rooms and pre-planned vacation itineraries. My dad loves hot places, and thinks that the ideal family vacation is to go someplace warm and luxurious with a pool and a beach and sun and lots of touristy activities, so when my mom was alive and we still took family vacations, that was all we ever did. That's why I loved going with my buddy and his dad and uncle. I love staying at that cabin.

Obviously my friend and I also go snowboarding when we're up there, but even that, to me, is a different experience than most would assume. I'm a good rider and can handle pretty much any trail at Stowe, but I rarely take the fast and exciting trails and virtually never venture into the park area to try my hand at jumps and rails. I consciously seek out the least ridden, most secluded, winding trails. The longer the run the better. So many of my friends love to go fast and rip down the mountain. I find that fun for about 2-3 rides out of the day. I like to find a winding trail where I'm unlikely to encounter many other people, put my head phones in and cruise at a medium speed, taking in the mountain and the forest.

Heading back to the cabin after a day on the mountain, eating some venison stew and having a couple of beers and sitting on the porch with a cigar or something is amazing. I also love the cold. Even being cold at night and having to sleep with a hat on kind of makes me feel content somehow, because I feel like I'm more alive when I'm somehow enduring an element that the normal comforts of home simply eliminate while we just take it for granted. I also love camping. When I was 21 we took a trip up to Lake George, which we'd done numerous times before because my mom's family used to have a summer house up there when she was a kid and it was nostalgic for her. We used to stay for like 18 days because she still knew a lot families up there and such. It was always boring for me because most of the families she visited were older folks who had been friends with her parents or whatnot so one year I convinced my dad to let me rent a campsite on one of the tiny islands in the middle of the lake for 5 nights while we were up there.

I packed all my camping stuff, filled a single cooler with basic food supplies, packed like 2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of jeans, 3 pairs of socks and boxers, 4 t-shirts and a sweatshirt, a pack of matches and one bundle of firewood to get started with and left my cell phone and everything else but a journal and a couple of books at our hotel. I rented a canoe and spent 6 days and 5 nights just paddling around the lake, reading, writing, exploring other islands, climbing trees and rationing the hotdogs and bratwurst that I brought. It was incredible and when I packed up and went back to the hotel afterwards I was in a state of serious happiness and contentedness that's really difficult to replicate before I eventually started falling back into bad habits. I loved not having to even consider talking to anyone or caring what they thought for a few days and I got so many thoughts in order in my head and came up with so many good ideas about life and what's important. I've wanted to do it again every year since and I'd said it was something I was going to do every year right after I did it, but I haven't done it yet. School and work and hockey and girlfriend and what not have just always held me back. I still would love to make it an annual tradition. I imagine it's terrific for mental health.
