That Hiking trip

well, this being my next post, I feel like I need to at least explain:
that last post was about the bachelor party/hiking trip in general, but I do not remember what exactly it said. If you can decode it, congratulations, because even I can't. Looks like the whole "blog from your phone" idea has a few bugs.

Anyway, the bachelor party/hiking trip:
We decided to hike around Mt Greylock State Reserve in Massachusetts
We hiked about 12.5-13 miles the first day, we started on Money Brook Trail, but did the hardest trail in the park "Mt Prospect". This trail left us exhausted, causing us to stop just half a mile short of our planned shelter. The next day, we took it easy and did 5-6 miles, stopped at a shelter near a beautiful waterfall, and drank for the rest of the day.  After many tomahawk+knife throws, we set off for the final leg of the trip, 6-8 miles back to the van.
Once we got back, we went for big fat burgers at a local pub.
All in all, I had a great time on this trip.
I have another trip planned for 2 weekends from now, and one kayaking/camping trip in the works between then.
Should be fun!

Exams and busy stuff!

I've been inactive over the last half a week because of exams (3 finals to do), a wedding shower over the weekend, and trying to find out where I'll be over the summer. So far, the choice is between 4 states and 2 different countries, so it should be an interesting one.
This weekend I'm headed for massachusetts for a hiking trip/bachelor party on the tallest mountain in the state. Should be a good time!
See you guys in a week's time!

Osama bin Laden death

Well, just heard the word. Osama bin Laden, leader of the terrorist group Al-Qaeda has been killed and his body is in human custody.
Let me just ask, am I the only one who realizes that this is not, by any means, the end of the war?  Al-Qaeda is by no means a simple organization, and it was well known that there was a bounty on his head.  There WILL BE a replacement for him, and the organization WILL continue to operate.  The way I see it, odds are good that within a month, there will be a retaliatory attack on US soil.  The only thing I can do is wait.

Stay safe.
