Weekend Ramblings; Patagonia Sale at BackCountry.com; Random Shots of Beauty

Posted Nov 26 2011 12:00am

A few product-related odd and ends before our customary Random Shot of Beauty …

*  If you’ve been a slacker on returning your Orbana feedback to me, good news: I’m extending the deadline by one more week in order to run a series of posts on an unrelated theme next week.  Therefore I’m pushing back the Orbana feedback post until the following week, which means you now have until next weekend to send me your feedback. So e-mail me if you’ve been sitting on your review, and I’ll publish them the week of December 5th.

*  When I announced the giant Vibram FiveFingers closeout sale at TravelCountry.com , I indicated that there was no telling how long the sale would continue. Well, now they’re telling: many of the sale prices (20 to 33% in most cases) will end after Monday the 28th, so get them while the getting’s good .

*  Another cool outdoor gear sale is going on right now at Backcountry.com , which carries an enormous variety of gear for just about every activity you can think of. They’re also a solid supplier of Patagonia apparel, with a healthy selection of Patagonia shirts , shorts , pants and jackets  (filter those links by brand on the right-hand side) included in the current sale.

And that’s enough business for today; on with the RSOB.

This week’s offering is a scene from Thanksgiving morning in Salinas …


Some little kid getting a drink from some grown-up turkey at an aid station. Our whole family entered a local 5K that turned into a great time for everyone involved. I made a long morning of it, running extra miles beforehand for what ended up being my biggest training day in quite a while*. I wish I could say that it made up for the calories I consumed later in the day … but I’m afraid that single meal might have set me back about a week’s worth of mileage. Thank goodness it’s still the offseason.

*I may have a report posted sometime in the next couple weeks, but who knows. Busy busy busy.
