The 70s

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Schaefer Oct 18, 2010. 15 Replies

Maybe I'm a bit nostalgic because I was only a little boy then, but it seems to me that the 70s were a time when manhood was a true societal virtue and it didn't seem so challenged by hyper-feminism,…Continue

Losing both parents

At a loss right now.A few weeks ago, I buried my mom, whom I loved so much. This comes not three years after I buried my dad, who was my hero.Needless to say, this is uncharted territory for me. With each burial, I was the family's "rock," handling arrangements, setting things up, consoling others. No time to grieve.Soon after, I returned to cold, unfeeling, drab New York where 80 percent of the people don't care about your problems, and the other 20 percent are glad you have them.But with…See More

I could have died while hiking today, don't be stupid like me

I have a cautionary tale for my fellow outdoorsmen out there. I went hiking solo today through some less traveled canyons near where I live. I unknowingly ended up off trail and was aggressively bouldering to get up and around some obstacles, mainly a decent sized waterfall. I kept pushing because I thought this was my route, and the knowledge that I wouldn't need to go down because I was on a loop. Anyway, I finally got up the bulk of it and couldn't find anything that resembled a trail.…See More
