    Reminds me of a piece of amazing documentary film I saw about polar bears. From what I remember, one of the crew was left back at the hut on his own while the rest were filming something elsewhere for a few days, he was just there to rest a couple of days and not part of the documentary. He recorded some of it on a camera, but he was on his own and all unplanned so it wasn't slick footage. Very shortly after the others left a large male polar bear started stalking him patiently, they had a trip wire around the compound to trigger bangs and flares and that normally worked to scare the bears away. This one must have been very hungry and it wasn't at all dissuaded. The hut was absolutely tiny and not entirely bear proof. The guy recorded a sort of vlog of the incident, you could feel his increasing stress in the updates as it went on because he wasn't sure how it would end, he had no rifle and his best weapon was a cast iron skillet/frying pan. He barricaded the door but the window wasn't securable, ideal size for a polar bear to stick its head and shoulders through and the room was so small it'd be hard to avoid becoming lunch. The guy had to wait for the bear to stick its head/shoulder through the window and hit it on the tip of its nose with the pan. It didn't like that and it retreated, luckily his colleagues came back the next day with a rifle and scared the bear away, but it was an interesting and tense video log!
    Wonder if I can find it on YouTube somehow?
    Not my idea of a nice vacation!
    It's never too late!

    Catching a plane tonight at 10:30pm to Denver, Colorado. We're going to stay at a hotel near the airport tonight and then tomorrow we will drive to Granby, Colorado for about four days. We haven't planned anything officially, but we will likely hike, kayak, sight-see, etc. we have an Airbnb rental until Wednesday. After Granby, our itinerary is blank and we will play it by ear; return flight is next Saturday night.

    Nothing too exciting, but it's our first vacation since before Covid and we are ready to get the hell out of Dodge.

    Sorry to say I hadn't heard of Granby, so I googled it. ****!!! there are some beautiful pics around that place, mirror lake and all sorts of lakes, hills and fantastic scenery.

    Enjoy your trip

    Thanks, man. We are looking forward to about 20-25 degrees lower temps. It hit 98 degrees here in Houston today.

    Sure thing. I'm sure we will take quite a few pics! I love the Colorado scenery.

    Yeah, it is a beautiful place. We chose that location due to its proximity to some great places like Rocky Mountain National Park and Winter Park. Should be a great time! Thanks.

    Managed to get a 1 overnight vacation last weekend to Yorkshire Dales went with an old buddy. Beautiful part of the world.
    I know.. "no photos and it didn't happen" but it was dark and so wet that I couldn't get any pics. I only had phone with me not a camera and that was staying inside 2 layers of ziplock plastic bags, a padded envelope and in the backpack otherwise it'd have been destroyed for sure.

    I will shameless post someone else's photo I found on the internet as that shows the bottom 25m or so (last 80ft, of the about 320 foot descent) to get inside to start exploring. And yes, the way out is back up the rope again! so a good workout


    Their picture is very odd, because it had been sustained dry weather for a week when I was there and there was a LOT of waterfall pouring down the hole, their pic it almost looks dry. Anyway, any of you UK folks reading this who enjoy the outdoors -- get yourselves over to Gaping Gill. Pant sh*ttingly impressive stuff. A great trip, totally recommended.

    Hit up Kansas City for a Chiefs game, good time at the game but the city isn't anything special. Did try BBQ at Joes, Jack Stack and Arthur Bryants with Arthurs coming in a distant 3rd as they coat everything with nasty sauce. Joes had great ribs and the burnt ends at Jack Stack were the best I have ever had.

    Going to see Eric Church in Buffalo NY in a couple weeks, tickets were a gift, just learned they were $315 each. To me that's ridiculous. 6x the price of the hotel and uber. Then they will charge 8 bucks for a beer inside the arena.

    Chit is getting out of hand.

    Currently in Pigeon Forge TN and it's great, busy as $hit with ungodly traffic but the food is good and no freakin masks anywhere. Was disappointed with the food at Ole Red in Gatlinburg but Frizzle Chicken in Pigeon Forge is awesome with divine chicken and the biscuits and gravy were very good.
    Did a nighttime Alpine sled run which was fun but pretty expensive for a 7-8 minute round trip ride.

    Not much of a trip.. but did drive up to LA last weekend for the Eagles concert at the Forum.

    More importantly, stayed in Venice Beach that Friday night, and went to Gold's for a workout Saturday morning. Went early and thankfully not too busy yet.

    It was a pretty cool experience (for $40 lol). Didn't see anyone famous, but there were a lot of large human beings there.

    Shoot. Still, sounds like it was a good time and you were able to get out for a bit!

    More importantly, stayed in Venice Beach that Friday night, and went to Gold's for a workout Saturday morning. Went early and thankfully not too busy yet.

    It was a pretty cool experience (for $40 lol). Didn't see anyone famous, but there were a lot of large human beings there.
    NIICE.

    I'm heading to LA/Costa Mesa in two weeks for IPL tested worlds - won't be doing much sight-seeing but it's been over 5 years since I've been in SoCal so should be fun/interesting.
    It's never too late!
