Boondocking in Arizona, Day 7: Owl Creek BLM Campground

 Today I displaced out of the Hot Well Sand Dunes Rec Area, detouring through Safford for errands, and now am dry camping in the Owl Creek Campground managed by the BLM.Small campground, seven sites in all I think, and it's perhaps 1/3 full...the sites are pretty well spaced apart and there's some privacy provided by large sage brush bushes.

How to Use the Silencer Shop Kiosk

How to Use the Silencer Shop Kiosk U.S.A. -( I have always wanted a .30 caliber suppressor for my .300blk pistol that I affectionately call “Black Betty.” I have multiple .300blk firearms, but this one was the first I built, so it has a special place in my heart.

Where the Rich Use Public Transportation…

I ran across this quote while reading about what makes Tokyo work as a city: A developed country is not a place where the poor have cars. It’s where the rich use public transportation. It’s a great quote and the piece attributes it to the former mayor of Bogotá, Colombia, Gustavo Petro. But he never said it (even though the vast majority of the results on Google say he did). The original quote (from 2012) is from another former mayor of Bogotá, Enrique Peñalosa, and it reads: Una ciudad avanz...

The metaverse isn’t a place – it’s a mandatory upgrade for reality

When Facebook announced it was changing its name to “Meta,” it was immediately clear the company was doing more than just pivoting – it was evolving. In the weeks since, the metaverse has become the hottest topic in tech. The last time I saw a planet-scale conversation about technology of this magnitude was when blockchain and cryptocurrency entered the mainstream periphery around the middle of 2017. Unfortunately, it seems like most people don’t “get” the metaverse. It’s being referred to as a ...
