About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good.

Re: Science Fact: Running Does Not Suck.

Re: Tights
I'm curious why all the tights are the skin-tight versions. Why none of the tights that are looser, with air space between the skin and the legs, like those worn by runners or that were popular...

A big cast iron cauldron, enough to feed 10, with an entire watermelon nested inside.

Re: Olympus
I thought you were talking about the TG-2, sorry. I own the OM-D, and you're right, it is not submersible. But it does great in the rain and as long as you have one of the weatherproofed len...
