    I'm not an AI Bot on the internet ;) but you might also like to "follow" this photographer at Flikr, @SeleniumFalcon -- lots of trains and aircraft (old and new), so he pushes a couple of my image fave buttons, at any rate. :)

    Don’t you worry. You’ll get your fair share of this rain ;)

    Hopefully my maters don’t rot out with all of this water…

    I'd love to one day see trees like those in person. Giant redwoods and sequoias are a personal bucket list of mine

    I've been a few times. Very worth a trip. Id love to rent an RV and hit Yosemite (my favorite park) then a few others in CA.

    Yes one of the only reasons I'd travel to California is to check out the national parks there. I'm sure it's spectacular!

    Highest temp i could find today was 128 degrees. They are forecasting 130 for tomorrow. The lowest I could find for Antarctica is -82. Crazy to think we can have a 210 degree split on this planet.

    I’ve been near Death Valley.

    88 miles due south in the Mojave Desert/Ft Irwin/NTC in July. 125+ is common w/13-15% humidity - 18% considered high.

    Its a place you can get into trouble from dehydration VERY quickly. I recall experiencing a chill, however brief, immediately after an outdoor shower when the wind whipped up.

    Very cool foldout that was. Cool side note. The guy in the bright green jacket at the 40 second mark is Jim Spickler. We grew up together in Barstow CA. Our family's were very close. He is also in the foldout pic and if you watched that entire episode he is on Netflix he is featured a few times.

    I'm deathly, knee knocking, nausea inducing scared of heights. But I might pop a Xanax and some Nitroglycerin to keep from having a heart attack and go for it. That would be an amazing opportunity. I think that tree is named imperion or hyperion. I'm pretty sure it has been dated to 3,200 years old. Edit: my bad, its between 600 and 800 years old. And it's Hyperion.

    Small world!

    That's SOOO cool you know a guy who went up there during that research and photo shoot.

    I don't think I can trust a rope or those squirrelly things that the rope goes through. I'm 75% sure something would fail JUST because I'm using it/them.

    My wife was born in Barstow. Met her here at Wrightsville Bch. NC. Her parents moved a few times before settling in Surf City just up the road from here.

    Small world indeed. If she ever went to Dr. Paul Spickler DDS dentists across from the main Post Office she has met his dad.

    Here is a cool video of him. The Eagle Wisperer.

    Does your wife remember what street she lived on?

    Eagles are majestic birds for sure. My wife watches those nest cameras all the time.

    She's in bed now. I'll ask tomorrow.
