Doing some remodeling around the ‘ol blog

This has been a long time coming really, I’m going to be cleaning up around here. My Blogroll is hopelessly out of date, there are still links to my old World of Warcraft characters, there are guides and such for WoW that are years out of date, along with some things I have posted over […]

Basic Family Camping Gear List

Hello again, Yes I’m still looking out the windows at the snow and thinking about summer. Since my last post it occurred to me that backpacking is far from the only camping activity that folks might be interested in. In fact, most folks that are interested in it likely already have a good amount of camping experience. […]

Where Dech Ponders Getting Back to Nature, or Possibly Plans his Midlife Crisis

As those who have followed this site for a long time know I am very fond of outdoor activities. You also know I write about what is on my mind, not just about WoW. (which I’m not even playing at the moment) Many years ago as a teenager I was into backpacking and canoe camping with […]

What happens when there are no good guys?

I find myself sitting here pondering something, the creation of yet another alt. An alt to level slowly, uncaring about whether they ever see end game content or not. One to go experience the story as its told while I’m leveling, as opposed to going full heirlooms and burning my way thru the zones, just […]

Bucket list?

So lately I’ve heard people talking about Mists of Pandaria  bucket lists. Are there that many buckets that we need to list them all? Does that have anything to do with this expansion being MoP? I mean, yes, MoPs need buckets, but why a whole list? Oh, my bad. You ment THAT kind of bucket list. […]

This should be a simple question

I was spending my Monday morning thinking about my future plans in World of Warcraft. More specifically about how and where I plan to level characters in Warlords of Draneor. In the end I plan to only level two characters to the cap next expansion. I figure One Horde and One Alliance will allow me to play […]

Visions of a better mobile app

As I’m sitting here on a quiet Sunday morning I do what I normally do when I have a bit of free time. I goof around on my phone. As I often do, I log into the mobile app to see if there’s anyone online that might want to chat. While I was bouncing from […]

My two cents on the boost to 90

One of the more interesting pieces of news that came from Blizzcon was the instant boost to 90 that will come with the expansion pack. It caused quite a kerfuffle on Twitter as the announcements were coming thru. Later as more details came to light it seems that Blizzard has decided that playing with ones friends is […]

The Riker paradigm

Years ago I was in the Navy, and spent a good part of the late 80’s and early 90’s out to sea. What does that have to do with Warcraft? Not much honestly, but it does explain why I’ve been slowly working my way thru shows like Star Trek, The Next Generation and actually seeing […]

What if we are the bad guys?

A thought has been rolling around in my head ever since the basic plotline of the WoD expansion was announced. You know, that whole thing where Garrosh escapes, somehow steals Doc’s DeLorean, and drives thru the Dark Portal at 88 miles per hour. This puts him back in the old west old Draenor where he decides to […]
