So, I'm going to be hiking the Pacific Crest Trail for the next several months, leaving this blog on hiatus while I'm out playing in the mountains. I may occasionally update here, but probably not much, or at all. I do have a blog on the hike that I'm going to try to update, found here:

Moccasin's PCT Hike

Moccasin is my trail name, by the way. Don't know how often I'll be able to update, but I sure welcome you to check in now and then.

In the meantime, the old posts here are still there for your reading enjoyment. Below are highlighted a few of my favorites. Also, if you're interested in poetry, I have several poems up, you can read them here.  Otherwise... thanks for reading, for your thoughtful comments, and, until September, farewell!

Mind vs Matter?

Night and Darkness

Why I Meditate

Urban Despair and the Need for Nature

Conservation Chaos


System Fail

On Fighting the System


Thoughts On Science

Wanting Wisdom

Joining the Green Movement

Socialism, Health Insurance, and Eating the Rich


  1. Good luck to you! And I'm off to China in two weeks to hide behind the Great Firewall.
    It's been grand, these conversations.

  2. Give me a shout out somewhere on the southern Washington portion of the trail! (I won't hear it, of course, as I'm down here along the coast, but maybe a bird can relay the message to me.)

    I don't understand the link you provided for Moccasin's PCT Hike. It goes to a post on this site from January that doesn't even reference the hike.

  3. @Rambling Taoist

    That was obviously a typo. The link to his Pacific Crest Trail hike blog is listed on his profile page, but in case you missed it here's the link:

  4. Now that you're off the trail, can we expect more posts back here?
