    Is that commonly available or do you have to trek through the wilderness or something?

    Not commonly available. We have some farms nearby that produce it. Cross between bison and cattle. The taste is like a stronger grass fed beef flavor and we find it very tender.

    Do you think grass steak is better than corn? I like grass fed burger and milk for sure, but steaks tend to come out funny for me. Never tried ribeye gf.

    In my experience corn fed beef usually has more marbling but the flavor profile is different. Just a matter of preference really. I like steaks rare (well, just warm in the center) so that may affect how a grass fed steak comes out, vs. say medium rare.

    Wonder how it works out for prime rib.

    Anyways I saw a video on facebook that showed a ribeye reverse seared, slow-roasting it on cedar planks then of course blasting it on the coals. Seems like a fun idea to try.

    Heya Dom.

    The kids are getting huge. Both of them in soccer and gymnastics (they pronounce it gymmagics). Company I work for sold their assets to another company for 5.6 billion but I landed on my feet, so far. And I'm about to start querying agents for the book I was working on years back.

    All in all, pretty good.

    Hope you guys are okay with the fires and the girls are well.

    So as I thought about it today, my DB Bench Press and my weighted pull-ups have come to near the same volume schedule, that being 5 sets of 4 for one and 6 sets of 4 for the other as of this week.

    I've kinda been wondering if I should scale down the pull-up weight a bit for MMC or keep trying at this one increment of weight that renders the overall sets a bit of a slugfest. Kinda fun to measure up to the lift, just not sure it's necessary or practical.

    With the DBBP I probably will just go further with sets. Both exercises also I find myself adding whole sets as progress, I'm not sure how common or often that is among people. I'd think that makes it a form dominant progression to be adding whole sets. Then again it is just one exercise out of the whole workout technically, so that set progression might be inflated a bit.

    Thanks 400G.

    Yeah, I'm moving to the other company. It's a big change for us - been with this company for 15 years and thought I'd probably make a full career out of it. But the new company does some exciting things with regards to employee ownership so there's definitely cause to be excited (while also a little nervous...).

    Re: the book, I am in the querying stage. Writing a query letter to send to agents in hopes they want to pick me up. For debut authors this can be a long process that doesn't succeed, so I'm going to give it some effort and then pivot to self publishing on Amazon. Won't let this drag any longer. I have a couple other stories I want to start writing.

    How you been?

    Great to hear from you BT. Everything is okay over here although there were a couple of months where the air quality was bad and I'd be concerned about prolonged exposure to that especially for people with lung problems, children, etc.

    Hopefully now that your kids are older you'll get more time to do some of the stuff that inevitably gets put on hold. I've come to appreciate how important hobbies are and making time for them. It's too easy to fall into a rut "consuming" instead of being creative. Still taking photos?

    Phones have definitely come a long way and I use that feature all the time. A few days earlier I experienced a really vivid sunset at Mt Cook. There were only two people shooting from that spot — me and the guy who took this below standing 10ft away directly across the road with a Sony a7R III. He posted this to instagram the next day and of course I immediately recognized the shot. All mine were panos with a long lens so it's basically that without the streaking lights from cars and more of the mountains but I still haven't got around to working on it. I'm posting this as a reminder.

    So the lights remain because they are feeding the camera the most exposure, but the road remains because it's utterly consistent in the downtime?

    Long exposure and it captured cars in both directions. He might have even blended several exposures.

    Aperture and shutter speed control the light hitting the sensor. You can close down the aperture to increase the shutter speed.

    You can do the same with cloud and water movement. The camera generally needs to be on a tripod.

    Hopefully now that your kids are older you'll get more time to do some of the stuff that inevitably gets put on hold. I've come to appreciate how important hobbies are and making time for them. It's too easy to fall into a rut "consuming" instead of being creative. Still taking photos?

    That NZ story irks me. There's an unspoken code with landscape photographers, imo. Or at least there should be. When you arrive on a scene and someone else is already there you don't walk into their shot. You don't try to hustle them. You don't walk up to them while they're composing and try to talk to them. You give it time. Even if the conditions are one in a million you show respect and wait for the right moment. When that comes you can say something and ask if they mind if you set up next to them, etc.

    To be honest, I wouldn't have handled the Instagram lady as well as you did. I probably would have said, "I bet you're great with photoshop. So I'm going to walk forward and if you think I'm in your shot go ahead and photoshop me out. Next time, if you're less rude, maybe I'll listen to what you have to say."

    Anyway...

    Yeah I have been trying to get out there. Took the family to Zion, which was AMAZING. Got some of the iconic shots, like this of the Watchman (FB qual):
    Spoiler!


    If you look at the bottom right you can see a couple guys who walked out into EVERYONE's shot, on the banks of the river. They're blurry in my shot because it's a long exposure.

    I took this shot from a bridge and the entire bridge was shoulder-to-shoulder with photographers.
