Some images from a great and interesting gtg in Geneva. Some of the rarest military watches and chronographs in vintage watches. Perhaps even more important and interesting, the discovery of the first commercially sold Weems ever (picture 4) sent to Baume and Co in the UK no less. Now in what must be the most important collection of Lindbergh and Weems watches in the world.
Thanks to those who organised and to Longines for the fantastic hospitality.
With all the time I’ve spent in the Catskills, I’d never eaten at @peekamooserestaurant . So that’s where we went for my bday dinner (it’s one of the only places up here that’s open on Mondays off season). I’d say it was more fun than fine dining, but it was definitely an experience im glad I checked out! Here are two of the best dishes we had: chittara Bolognese and wood-fired octopus. Hard to complain about a delicious, warm, hearty noodle on a 45 degree eve in April. #noodsnoodsnoods
Our group signing in at the summit canister on a winter hike I led to Fir Mountain. This trip included the loop with Big Indian Mountain. These days there is often a fairly easy to follow herd path most of the way to Fir from near the Biscuit Brook lean-to, but there are still times when it seems discontinuous or difficult to find. In the winter, even a well set snowshoe track can be quickly hidden by falling or blowing snow. During the growing season, blowdowns and new growth frequently make such a path hard to find. The route from the summit of Fir over to Big Indian can be tricky. There are a number of ways to make the hike more difficult than intended or even head off in the wrong direction. Even if you do find a good herd path, there is more than one popular route to Fir and you might be heading off to a different parking area than you started, rather than to Big Indian. You should never go off trail without the essential back country navigational skills and tools. It might be relatively straight-forward one day and impossible without solid map and compass skills on another day.
The signals appeared sooner than we’d anticipated. Our home planet needed us back—not because it was in trouble, but because we were.
Earth once brimmed with so much potential. It was a place our species could thrive. But we promised not to lose hope. – The Visitors
