A bit of a shame,
the Sharing small joys thread turning into the Boy Scout thread. :-\

Rejoicing in small joys is worthy.

I just spend a glorious week in the alpine wilderness,
away from electricity, people, and the persistent hum of engines.

On the way home, all burnt and leg weary,
we dropped off this hill
passed a fat bear munching in an avalanche chute,
and within 6 minutes were in town at the brewery enjoying a soured Berliner Weisse.

After only water for 5 days, that was a real treat. 
And to have a beer like that in such a remote location...even better.

Cheers to the proliferation of craft brewing.

Good grief Vertical1, you are correct!
They did stain dark.

Glad I am here to type still, and thanks for the lesson.
I guess I should stick with the chantys...or hang with someone who knows.

Cheers to learning and living. ;D
They were tasty though... ::)

One, maybe two day old boletes,
crisp and fresh!
About the only ones I will take.

Man were they tasty.

Cheers to the season of fungi. 8)

Well it ain't spring, but isn't this the wild mushroom thread?

Went up on the hill to get some wood, and brought these home as well. 8)

Interesting.  Seems like good life work. 
Congrats on the postdoc!

So how does Lou Gehrig translate into MN in europeanish?
I bet that was not one of your defense questions. ;D

What did you defend?

the proper classification of wet and fresh hop ales... :D

thanks everyone, still reading through . . .

 :o holey moley, backpedaling already?  wowza that doctoral achievement takes over fast. 
hehe, just ribbing you a little.   8)

Anyway,  I am {edit: um still} curious of your field of study. 
I think folks that have PhD's and goats on their chin are just automatically cool.

I found some of these today.

They looked scary, and were going to black.

looks like this heat wave has finally hit Silverton. We came very close to 80°F today. :o

Heh, guess that passed.  I was up county road 12 this morning early and it was 38 degrees! :o
Looked like Silvertown had a bit of river fog going.

Days are getting shorter, better get some wood stacked. ;D

 ;D Man, I snorted hard on that one.

Anyway, wow a defense is a great thing to be done with.
So what was your field of study?

Thought I would bump this thread, with harvest coming on.

Technically, these were planted last fall, but what the heck.
It is garlic harvest time here. 8)

Wow Phil, that is cool stuff. 
Talk about some nice outdoor living space.

Good work!

So where are you guys located (Pinnah and 1vertical)? 
Me= Central BFE Whyoming

Ah, I figured you were in CO with the mushrooms in Telluride reference. 
So I gotta ask:  I've seen BFE and Wyoming together in other places - a Google search of BFE was less than fruitful, tho' it did give me an inkling what it might stand for - what does tha acronym stand for?

We were talking about southwest Colorado.  The early monsoon is making for some damp weather in mushroom territory.

Wyoming and BFE do seem to go together...west Texas and parts of Nevada also come to mind.  The Urban Dictionary is always a good reliable reference when it comes to vague and colloquial acronyms... :D  I think it mentions under BFE - in the middle of metaphorical nowhere.

BTW Vert, I spend the last two days above Telluride.  The only mushrooms I saw were growing out of wood.  Despite the moisture...perhaps it is just too early?

Word in the CO beer distribution scene is that the 2 Below is gone.  Yep.  Discontinued.

You certainly gave up the valiant fight. ;D

I will have at least one fond memory of it.
On tap at Billy Goat Gruffs.  Hells yes.

What will they sub as a winter ale?
