Training/Diet Update #2: No pain from lifting!

November 27, 2011

Although I alluded to the reasons here, I never really explained why I’m not doing a formal exercise regimen like Starting Strength or CrossFit (two modalities that worked well for me before). Long story short, I broke my left shoulder twice and separated my right shoulder once. Each time I broke my shoulder, I had […]

Hunting my Friend’s Homestead in the Catskills: Day 2

November 24, 2011

Day 2 began just as the day prior, 5am wake up, shower, in the field by 5:30. Yesterday, I saw hunters on the property to the south, and part of the southern perimeter consistent of stone walls with breaks forming natural funnels for lazy deer.

One of my more aggressive goals on my return from Oregon was to take a second deer this year. Taking a deer is one thing with a guide who knows a piece of property so well that the deer practically fall into your lap. Having a deer venture into range while sitting dead silent in […]

Still a “Cook” plus Gunshow Roadtrip

Although I like quite a bit about Manhattan, one of the aspects I miss of New Hampshire was the ability to teach novices gun safety and marksmanship almost every weekend. In total, I took about a hundred classmates of mine from business school through the basics, with an emphasis on practical marksmanship. Manhattan, due to […]
