Defn: a human male displaying evidence of devolution - exhibits distinctive "caveman-like" tendencies. This man often dribbles in public places; cannot drink a beverage without spilling it on himself, the floor or someone else; may also run into objects like lampposts & bushes; has a definite "sloopish & short legged" running style that is slow and low to the ground, often resulting in the dragging of knuckles.

These throwback neanderthals, along with their questionable diet, should clearly be avoided.

Barr Camp hike

My son and I hiked up to Barr Camp today in preparation a reality check for him so as to see what to expect fear for the Barr Trail Mountain race coming up in 7 weeks.  Seemed like every man, woman, child and their dog(s) were on the Barr Trail.  Parking, as always, was a distance from the trailhead.  Took our time, hiked / walked the whole way - stopping plenty of times, including almost a 1/2 hour at Barr camp.  Total round trip time was just under 6 hours, 13.6 total miles.  3700 ft up & back.  Gave him plenty to think about as to what to expect for the race.  We will do this again, hopefully a few times before the race.


  1. Might not want to take him too many times - what if he smokes you on the BTMR??? That could make home life interesting :))

  2. When he starts to beat me on a regular basis, that will be when I resort to "Dads sneaky race day tactics". Not sure what those will be, hopefully have a year or two before that happens.
