    Mixology report, whats your favorite mixed drink?

    When I would go to the Alafia River Rendezvous in Florida, I camped around a bunch of folks from Georgia. They would take fresh peaches and cut them into chunks, and then put them in a big tub with Jack Daniel's. Mix. And then fill quart jars of it to make pickled peaches.

    The other day I did a couple searches in my current podcast platform for certain people and got some good results. One of the searches was “Ivan Carter.” There are a bunch of podcasts, some going back 4-5 years. He is an incredible listen. I would highly recommend searching out anything with...

    I found the episode with @Philip Glass just a couple weeks ago on Podcast Addict. It was an excellent listen. I’m saving it and will probably re-listen.

    Luxury trains and hunts

    On a couple episodes of “Under Wild Skies,” Tony Makris did a bird hunting Safari on Rovos Rail. I thought it looked like an amazing adventure. It is definitely a bucket list trip.

    I am working on my plains game rifle, for whenever I finally get to take my first Safari. Rifle is a Ruger No. 1 in .30-06, and I have a Leupold VX3i 3.5-10x40 to mount on it. The problem right now seems to be feeding it. I want to try a few different rounds to see what it shoots best, but...
