So sad

We've been getting our Daily Show fix by watching episodes on the internet for almost two years now. So imagine our dismay this week when we tried to watch and got this instead:

Apparently no one outside of the US is allowed to watch. So frustrating!

Vad är det?

What is this?

Answer to last week: Jon was right, that was a high-speed air hand dryer. You stick your wet hands through the top and the air blows the water off.

Tree terrorist

I had heard the rumors that somebody has been going around slicing a single, deeply cut ring into the pine trees around here; a bunch have already had to be cut down because of it. The other day I saw one. Why would anyone do such a thing?!

Swedish Safety

Bicycle helmet while in the stroller? No, that's not normal here. Note that it's on backwards too.

Walkable Westchester

The book is finally out: a guide for places to hike in Westchester County, NY which just so happens to contain maps made by yours truly. You can find more information about the book here. It is available for purchase directly from the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference or Amazon.com.

Vad är det?

What is this?

Answer to last week: Of course the Swede got it right. That was a Långfärdsskridsko, one of a pair of ice skates that you can easily take on and off (they attach to your boots) so you can skate across frozen bodies of water and hike between them on your trek across the wilderness.

glad påsk

What better way to celebrate Easter than to burn up anything and everything that will catch fire. You've got to scare away the witches somehow.

What is this?

Answer to last week: You guys were on the right track, but it is a melon slicer--sorry, Frida, it is way too big to help with an orange.

Go fly a kite

The nifty thing about this kite was they guy had a digital camera duct-taped to it. I would love to see what kind of photos he has gotten...
