Pico Bonito

Last morning at the Pico Bonito lodge. We got up early this morning for the “early bird” walk. Our guide proceeded to whistle up a pigmy owl, cuckoos, tucans, mot-mots, and a variety of other awesome birds. When I say “whistle up,” I mean that we would walk into an area and he would whistle . . . → Read More: Pico Bonito

Pico Bonito

I write from the Pico Bonito lodge / nature reserve / insanely sweet little hotel. Continuing my numerological obsession – we’re in cabin “1”. Yep. Uno.

Home sweet home

Home for a day, with redmed before headed to Honduras for a (well earned) week’s vacation tomorrow.

Hobbyist

I notice that I haven’t been posting all that much lately. What can I say? February tends to emphasize to me that life is short … a short month full of short days … so I spent more time doing rather than documenting.

Caught up at home this weekend, and it’s been really nice. . . . → Read More: Hobbyist

Travels

Tomorrow morning, I’m off to College Station Texas. Gonna re-build a compute cluster for the nice folks there. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to work in with the Judo club at the same time.

Travel

Dear travel industry:

If I go to Kayak.com and ask to get from “any airport near Boston, including Manchester and Providence” to “any airport near College Station, TX, including Houston and Austin”, during any three day window in a particular week, I really expect to have at least one nonstop option.
