Glacier Trip Advice - Honeymoon Itinerary July 2-9?

Hi all, my fiancee and I are staying in Whitefish for our honeymoon from July 2 to July 9. We have the beginnings of an itinerary planned but would like more opinions from people who have been there on what to do!

We have a reservation booked with the Grouse Mountain Lodge and plan to rent a vehicle at the airport when we get in (noon on July 2).

Day 1) Arrive in Kalispell Airport, drive or shuttle to Whitefish; check into hotel. Look around the city, visit Whitefish City Beach.

Day 2) Explore around whitefish. Visit Whitefish Mountain Resort and buy the activity package - ride the chair lift, zipline, and the mountain slide thing they have.

Day 3) Drive Going to the Sun Road. Maybe hike/picnic at Hidden Lake? Visit St. Mary's Lake? Climb Mount Oberlin? Something fun. Being the 4th of July, we'd like to find the best spot in the area for fireworks.

Day 4) Drive through the park some more; get some more ideas on what to see and where to go? Whitewater rafting or horseback ridi

Vermont 2021 Ski Trip

Dear, r/Dartmouth

I am an avid skier and I would consider myself an expert skier, I grew up in Vancouver skiing Whistler, Revelstoke, Big Sky, Grouse, Mt. Rainer, road trips to Tahoe in California, and also Park City a few teams as well as Colorado a few times(Copper, Vail, A-Basin). I plan on taking a friend of mine who is also an expert skier as well as my girlfriend(she has skied twice and is intermediate and I plan on teaching her a bit on the trip). Anyways, I am in Florida for College now and plan on doing this Vermont trip the first week of January next season, like January 6-10 2021. I just have a few questions.

  1. What is the best resort as far as cliff lines, glades, expert runs, etc.?
  2. What is the cheapest resort as far as tickets and lodging?
  3. Is it easier to stay at the mountain or just stay in Burlington and uber to the slopes?
  4. Best resort for terrain parks?
  5. Best resort with good food and a nice culture/vibe?

[CONTEST] - A Ranger's Sorrow

β€œSwiftly, my servants! Your master shan’t tolerate tardiness!” the necromancer bellowed to his entourage.

With no effort to hasten their collective jaunt, it appeared the command had fallen upon deaf ears; or rather, dead ones. Nevertheless, Guiscard pressed forward with the exuberance of a man half his age and twice his importance. A wretch and a cretin most of his life, he delighted in his newfound position of command, and barking his most id-rooted wills was a satisfactory reminder that he, in fact, had power over an underling, even if the undead were hardly in a position to argue.

The procession of zombies and the odd skeleton shambled ever onward as if the Shyish hoisting their desiccated husks was a regimental fife and drum, and the lofty pines of the Grey Mountains sought to mimic their movements. Juxtaposing the scent of death was the rejuvenating warmth of the early evening breeze and the sun defiantly still eking over the trees, both indicating that Sonnstill was not far a

Paranormal Sites in the USA List

Thought it might be helpful to have a list in one place of well-known (or little-known) sites, parks, woods, roads, etc. throughout the USA that are paranormal hot-spots, or that you (or someone you know) have experienced paranormal activity in.

Just so everyone can be aware to avoid.. or explore :)

I'll start with some of the more well-known spots in each state:

Alabama

  • Adams Grove Presbyterian Church in Dallas County
  • The Dr. John R. Drish House in Tuscaloosa
  • Sweetwater Mansion in Florence
  • Adams Grove Presbyterian Church and the adjacent cemetery in Dallas County
  • The Boyington Oak in Mobile
  • The Dr. John R. Drish House in Tuscaloosa
  • Gaineswood in Demopolis
  • Kenworthy Hall near Marion
  • Edmund King House on the University of Montevallo campus in Shelby County
  • Pickens County Courthouse in Carrollton
  • Pratt Hall at Huntingdon College in Montgomery

New COTW ideas

I was thinking that there could be a map in the midwestern United States. Layton is fun but whitetails are more suited to areas like the Midwest. Some ideas: not very much water, maybe a small lake and a stream or two with a swamp, have the north east portion of the map be corn and bean fields separated by tree rows about 20-30 yards thick. The rest of the map could be some fields but mainly oak and pine forests and birch and swamp. Species could be whitetail, black bear, coyote, pheasant, woodcock, grouse, cottontail rabbit, feral hog, elk in the northwestern part of the map, mallard, eastern turkey, wood duck, red fox, grey fox, Canada goose. I thought it would bring more realistic hunting for whitetail to the game.

Texas map: have blackbuck, feral hog, axis deer, whitetail, mule deer, aoudad, alligator, jack rabbit, cinnamon teal, mallard, wood duck, coyotes, desert bighorn, and more. Have it be (I don’t know how to describe it), Texas forests.

Central Asia antics.

That reminds me of a story.

I was pounding away on the keyboard very recently when my wife came up to my third-floor office, ostensibly looking for her morning cup of coffee.

Oh, sure, we have a De'Longhi Maestosa Coffee gizmo downstairs; but it’s kind of slow, noisy, only makes one cup at a time and is just plain fiddly. We reserve using that thing mostly for when we have company.

For Irish Coffees.

However, adjacent to my office is my homemade, bespoke java-engine.

It is powered by a 454 cubic-inch, 1,200 bhp, blocked & blueprinted, stroked & bored, nitrous-charged Chevy Big Block V-8. It boasts Jahn’s Racing Pistons, Banks Twin-Turbocharger, Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger, Lyndon Poskitt Racing high-lift-and-duration cam, Offenhauser manifolds, dual Holley 4-barrel double-pumper carburetors, Hooker headers, and Denso Iridium Racing Spark Plugs.

Journal of a Spetsnaz Commando, Chapter 2: The Dead World

Lt. Nikolai Smirnov, Spetanaz commando

October 2, 1987

It’s been a long time since I’ve made an entry here. A lot has changed. I have a new Spetsnaz team now. There’s me, the leader, Anton, who’s finally healed well enough to return to combat, Roman, the sergeant and second-in-command, and Ninel, our medic and scientist. I got promoted to first lieutenant back in June after the mission in Pripyat. Since then, our team has focused almost exclusively on the paranormal. Unfortunately, the missions I’ve been on are either too disturbing, too classified, or both, so I won’t be writing about any of them.

Right now, we’re on a helicopter en route to investigate an anomaly in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine. Other than that, they’ve told us nothing. Of course, it’s possible they know as little as we do about what we’re facing. I don’t know which is worse. But then, this is standard operating procedure for these kinds of missions.

Lots of glitches?

So, I've had a near death experience some time ago. I've posted of this in comments on this thread before, and I'll go find and add them here in a few days, as I'm currently at work on a break. Since then, countless glitches have happened and I'll share virtually all of them with you all over the course of time I have to be active here, but I have 2 very recent that have happened, one of which continues to happen daily.

I'll begin glitch one (recurring) by saying that, as my job, I run a machine which takes a specified amount of time to do its job before my next interaction with it. Depending upon size and shape, this could be anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes. Over the past few weeks, something that should take 10 minutes has been finishing far more slowly at times, taking 15-20 minutes. At other times, something that should have taken 20-30 minutes, takes less than 10. Now before anyone says anything, this is a recurring thing, but I KNOW that it's taking different times than

Is it safe to go from Grouse's lodge to Crown Mountain with enough water and hiking boots only? I'm taking intermediate hikers with me who finish Grouse Grind in about 90 minutes. Is it too much technically, or can it be done slowly but eventually?

This story is part of the Gristledex

I stood at the gateway to adventure, hesitantly preparing to enter what would surely be a winding road to the heart of the unknown.

Just a few feet away, a small creek churned with a quiet soothing babble. The mist it gave off filled the air like smoke, allowing small cracks of light to form god rays shining through the emerald canopy of the evergreens above. Unfortunately, this pristine visage was ruined by the plethora of mosquitoes assaulting me, whose incessantly buzzing wings whispered constant insanity into my ears.

The whole way here, I had been swatting the damn things to no avail. Something about my biology attracted them. As long as I can remember, I could be walking with parents or friends and be the only one bitten by the damn things. It had been a long hike to get here, and I was sure that by now my shoulders probably resembled something like pink bubble wrap from all

Spider in the snow (Steatoda? Vancouver, BC)

I found a spider today up on Grouse Mountain in the snow, think it might have been a Steatoda borealis or similar (I'm not a spider expert, I just googled for a common species that matched what I saw). I was just starting on my hike so I moved her close to some vegetation, and had a look for her on the way back but no luck.

Seemed an odd place to find a spider - would they be able to survive in snow, or was it likely that the spider just fell off a person? I feel badly now, would have brought her down to the lodge or something if I had been able to find her again.

Our party consists of a Halfling Sorcerer, a Half-Minutaur Barbarian, a Human Artificer/Bard, A Human Monk, An Elven Druid, and a Dwarf Cleric.

We do occasionally break the fourth wall and generally attribute it to Bardic Knowledge and the drugs that the Elf used to take on a regular basis. In either case, the rest of the party generally just shrugs off the weird references with confusion and continues onward]

Our story opens with our intrepid adventurers squabbling amiably about the gold and other such sundry loot that they had acquired through the sacking of Vraath Keep. They had just returned to the inner room after successfully evacuating it of a burning stuffed owlbear that had accidentally been lost to the small pit fire during the previous battle.

Multnomah Falls hike: Robot dwarfs

I went into this expecting stunning views and boy did I get 'em. Felt like the paths were set up to confront you at every turn with heart breaking scenes of natural beauty. That might've been the 25C though.

I arrived about noon, overdressed on advice from the website that it gets cooler near the falls due to water vapor. As a result that's the only place I was ever comfortable, although I nonetheless tried to hike to the top and became quite dehydrated before I gave up. I brought water but ran out pretty quickly.

At minute 25-30 after dosing, the familiar madness took hold. Some fellow ahead of me asked his friend what's at the other end of the trail. He joked it was probably just a robot dwarf who tells you to go the other way.

So of course I imagined the mines, refineries and factories which would be needed to manufacture robot dwarves, in addition to the specialized classes you'd have to take to be qualified to build them. As a sub-specialty within the niche of building regular
