    You see what's happening with it?  Bunch of small timers from Reddit and such are basically beating hedge funds at their own game. I don't fully understand it, but it's pretty wild

    So yeah, the Fed stuff is certainly alarming

    Fed's doing the right thing. There's nothing else they can do. I mean other than give people money, which is on the Treasury.

    This Fucking The Shorts business that reddit is doing is pretty funny. But it's short lived. Fun to watch people who wanted to fuck others over ultimately get fucked and come close to losing their shirts.

    suppose to get about 6-12 inches of snow. Hopefully it isn't too bad. I hate the winter

    Figured when they hired Dombroski this was the route they were gonna go instead of not spending money. I like it.



    Yeah, Dave....fuck this shit. I'm cool with winter through the holidays and NFL playoffs. But February blows.

    February is the worst month. I'm fine with winter as long as it's snowing. Personally, give me the months of May and September all year 'round. With that said, I'm going up to New Hampshire to do a 30 mile hike in the middle of February. I know, I don't know what I was thinking either...

    Pemi Loop - I've been planning this since last March. Now, if we actually complete it is another thing, haha...

    Have you done this type of thing before?
    This hike is no joke!
    I didn't know this was open in the winter.
    Should be an amazing experience.  Going for two days, or three?

    I've done this hike in spring, and I've done a lot of other winter trips, too, just nothing this hard. Yeah, we're pretty aware of the severity - bringing a lot of redundancies, snowshoes, crampons, GPS/SOS beacon, etc.

    The plan is 2 nights, 3 days. But am starting to think this might end up being 3 nights just because I don't think we'll be going more than 1 mph between all the up & downs and the amount of daylight.

    I'm a big fan of the White Mountains.

    Definitely will do.

    I get the impression that New Hampshire is kinda the laggard of New England. The Whites are absolutely beautiful, but I'd rather go to Maine or Vermont for anything else other than the mountains. I actually wouldn't be surprised that if (very big if) we were to move out of the city at some point it would ultimately be to VT.

    I had many great experiences growing up in VT.
    There are so many kind and genuine people living there -- and if you are outside of the few larger areas the communities are just a different world.  Wave to people driving buy type of shit -- mostly because you actually know them and recognize them - but even if not, they just wave because that is the neighborly thing to do.  (Even to "Flatlanders", which is what you would be to old folks there.)
    There are some fucking grade A hee-haws, but I guess that exists most places.  Raging opioid problem as well.

    You grew up in/around a city, so you know what you will be missing. 
    Surprisingly expensive to live in many parts of VT now - certainly compared to how it used to be.

    Yeah, I've lived in the boonies of PA, too, so I know the spectrum of people.

    I think there's a raging opioid problem everywhere, unfortunately, but I hear you.

    I'm weird - I have this perspective where if I don't live directly in the middle of a city then I want to be out near a mountain or some body of water with no in between. We've very lightly looked at houses in Montana, Washington, Colorado, VT, NH, ME. So that vibe. The wife is very much into it, and has talked me into something like Vermont-ish so that we're not so far away from family & friends. Again, this is all very low % chance of happening right now, but if for some reason I am able to land more jobs that are 100% remote then those chances go up.

    You're not kidding on those VT home values...

    We talked about moving to Vermont at the beginning of the pandemic in the US, but the telecom infrastructure of the home we had an option to move into there was such that it would be nearly impossible to work from home. We'd basically have to get a satellite service. I'm talking a giant dish in the middle of the field.

    It's just never been wired because it's always been the place to get away from work, screens, etc. We have an old table radio to listen to Sox games, and that's about it.

    Would've been nice to have had all that room to roam, for sure.

    It is the worst. 

    I like my elderly neighbors - they are quiet, respectful, keep everything clean...but they do not shovel.  Times like these past few weeks when I am open to seeing them move to FL and sell to younger families who can shovel their own yards!
    Well....then I would bitch about their mess, kids, and noises. 
    Hell with it, I can shovel some extra snow.

    Snow sucks.

    I don't mind snow.  If it's gonna be cold, I'd rather have snow on the ground.  Though that is changing a bit with working from home and daycare closing from time to time. 3 year old loves it though.
