There are plenty to say about guns. France doesn’t really have a gun culture so it’s difficult to form an objective opinion.
Historically the German occupation of France should never have happened. The complete lack of weaponry is often used to justify the fact that a mere 5000 German soldier managed to occupy a country of 30 million people for several years.
On the other hand; there are crazy people everywhere.
I consider Denver to be fairly safe but I thought I’d buy one to actually talk from experience. This one is not going to kill anyone so at least there’s that.
I’m at the range every other week because practice makes perfect.

Woke up at 1am., drove to the trail-head and started hiking at 3am. Reach to top of Grays Peak at 5:30 right on time for sunrise. It was freezing at 14000+ feet and I had no gloves nor beanie. Ouch.

I usually go to Walker Ranch Loop Trail for trail running but the weather looked nasty so I thought I’d find a new place closer to Denver.
Had a great time going around North Table Mountain. That little ledge is fun!

Sometime, working in basement is depressing. I try to remind myself that the house is older than any human alive. That it was built around 1894 and it has seen things…
Second room ceiling is all cleaned up.
Doing some experiment digging along the walls in a corner to check out the foundation. Looking good up to two feet at least.
I might dig out a foot and redo the concrete slab. Work work work…

Snowshoeing for a few hours up Ruby Creek towards Mt Parnassus / Bard Peak. Except without snowshoes. Oops.
Oh well. Finished the day at Sushi Sasa & My Brother’s Bar for some glorious sushi and some Chartreuse. Yummy.

St Mary’s Glacier with friends
Not the best weather. No visibility whatsoever but good hike nonetheless
St Mary’s Lake
Group of climbers practicing self-arrest
Are we having fun yet?
The dog seems pretty happy about the snow
Cleaned up one brick wall and one wood panel. Also started cleaning up the joist and ceiling (wood floor really). It’s messy, it takes forever but the result is pretty good (see before / after photos below.)
Considering the wood is 120+ years old I’m happy with the result. Will probably be done with the entire cleanup in two months. Then I can start building on it…
Not spending too much time on cooking / baking but I survive somehow…
- White / Milk chocolate fudge with rum raisins
- Chicken liver paté with basil
- Onion Soup with bread & cheese
Snowshoeing near Byers Peak, Colorado
I ended up taking the wrong trail and the view below is actually a view of Byers Peak from the saddle along the Bottle Peak trail.
