When you get a chance, please watch. This is a fantastic video. I know Casey, and I know Brutus... and I know the story. And it never gets old to hear it again.

Anyone looking for an outstanding opportunity to work with one of the largest Hadoop clusters in the midwest? Also, work with one of the largest AWS accounts in the midwest too? We are growing.

Let me know.

Yep... I must have been an awesome kid...

"You were indestructible.

You took falls that made doctors question physics, and got back up before they could declare you legally dead. No scrape, broken bone, or collection of skin-suit-alterations was going to stop you from being the chaotic little hell-beast that you were. You healed like a super human, and collected trophy scars that would one day get you laid. You were fearless. "

Haha, looks like my son. It seems his whole childhood was either replacing his teeth or splinting his ankles.

Damn. I remembered admiring those emblems when I was there. By the time someone got back there, spent all that energy to take them, they could have put in an honest days work somewhere else. SMDH.

I'm not a big sword fan, but I am a fan of anyone that can manipulate metal into functional and beautiful pieces of art or tools. Also, watching in 4K is a plus.

I'm a little over an hour from the nearest BPS and about 3 hours from the Cabela's near Richmond and Raleigh.

I've visited BPS a few times for freshwater stuff, but their saltwater selection is lacking, especially for a store located so close to the Atlantic.  I couldn't find an 8 oz. sinker anywhere. LOL

Story
Tagline
A technology creator and adopter, wilderness survivalist, and a polymath looking for more. I was lucky to be a Dude from Discovery Channel's Dude You're Screwed Season 2. Follow along as I have some cool projects in the works.
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully you will find something interesting here.  We tend to cover a lot of topics ranging from outdoors, technology, BBQ, fine pipe tobaccos, and random shenanigans.  Stick around and have a good time.  

He who sits still in a house all the time may be the greatest vagrant of all, but the Saunterer, in the good sense, is no more vagrant than the meandering river, which is all the while sedulously seeking the shortest course to the sea.  - Thoreau's Walking.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - So sayeth Robert Heinlein's character Lazarus Long in Time Enough for Love


Bragging rights
I am lucky enough to have been given opportunities in life, and have seized everyone of them. I cannot say I have been successful in each one, but trying is the hardest part. Failure is the greatest teacher.
