I don’t think it matters, they are freaking delicious! My buddy Oliver Woolley raises them and sells at the Santa Monica and Hollywood farmer’s market. They are called Peads and Barnetts. You can find them on FB, IG, and Yelp. (Think he spells it mangelista).

That is inaccurate - your assumption about me that is. The rest of it is absolutely true.

Meat should be a seldom occurrence in the human diet. It’s terribly bad for the environment at it’s current scale and method.

I may agree with you that the western world choses which animals it eats and doesn’t eat based on “cute Read more

You know, butchering and eating meat is not some elegant thing. Killing, butchering, and eating an animal is something we have ALWAYS done. yet it is so far removed from people’s lives even the most adamant carnivore tends to find it distasteful to see. We humans have the benefit of tools to help and in most cases Read more

1: We ate the pig
2: They are not endangered

Actually, the original plan was to get a mangelista from a friend who owns a farm in San Diego, but the smallest they had was 180lbs at $5 live (so more like $7/lb after butchering). This came from an okay small farm, so not devoid of flavor and with the smoke it helped. I’m pretty sure it was “worth it” but yes, Read more

We actually made a vinegar cucumber salad and sauce was on the side...

Well actually, if you want to get really technical, keeping your eyes covered is a huge (and totally passive) way to save energy in very cold weather. Your eyeballs are the only place on the surface of your body that have to remain wet and very close to 98.6 degrees at all times. In cold, windy conditions this is a Read more

I was actually wearing a combo approach shoe/trail runner from Patagonia (who just discontinued their shoe). They are the Rover. They have a 4mm heel to toe drop. Are super lightweight (like a modern minimal trail runner) and have s sticky rubber compound and rubberized toe box (like an approach shoe). I love them and Read more

what about the potential of them eating you? cause that always excites me!

And if you ever truly always knew what you were doing, would it be any fun???

Well, Sansho might have precipitated our bad decisions, that's true. Also, there's always the potential that one of the dogs ends up injured and needs to be carried out. What other things are you thinking?

I'll never leave my dog at home if it's just the two of us - he literally lives for this. That said, I have some Read more

I did say "almost always" - in a post above you'll see where I acknowledge some bad decisions; namely splitting up. Others: 1) Matt not taking the map with him (really fucking stupid) - though the map Wes bought was an absolute POS and that was mistake 1(a) not having a good map; 2) did I say splitting up was a bad Read more

I really have to push back hard on this. As I said in another post, mistakes/bad decisions are almost always only acknowledged as such in hindsight and you don't know your limits until you do. But really, that's beside the point. Why are you angry because someone else has made "bad decisions" that don't affect you Read more

You don't know your limits until you do. Bad decisions are almost always only bad in hindsight and you learn more from your mistakes than your failures. When Matt tells a second story about the same bad decisions being made then you can judge negatively.
