So great meeting @GuerillaOntologist IRL! Just as engaging and warm as the personality I met through endless video meetings. So fun! And Lordy I sure did miss soaking in mineral water!!

Glacier National Park has been a treat and everyone has been so so so kind.

Rangers have been so knowledgeable about wildlife, geology and forest fires... helpful since we'll be trying to head through a the big fire area today...

Hey Will! A while back you mentioned something about Loomio- Mastodon integration. I was wondering if you would be open to exploring that a bit more? What would that look like and how would it work?

Would you be up for coming to the next CWG Ops team meeting (usually the first week of the month... next one will take place in May)?


A good quote for your monster trilogy :)

What do you do when you're snowed in and can't go anywhere? Some stay inside a cozy cabin and do work, I chose to dig myself a little quinzee.

Didn't get to sleep in it though, since the plows came a few hours later and we decided to get back the city while we still had the chance!

Heck yeah!

Adventuring in the snow on Mt. Asama in Nagano, Japan. I *think* I have less than 7 weekends left before I leave this country that I've spent the last 8 years! So much more I want to see and experience before I go!

My three favourite photos from this weekend. Toasty toes and full of smiles.
