Many things are strange things and here are things from our writings. Interviews, adventure trails, cooking recipes and homebrew breakdowns.

The lower you go, the further back in time you venture. Delight.

Racing to stand at the Women’s March on Washington, D.C.

Others may have an idea enough to knit beanies weeks ahead of time. Others still decide two days earlier is enough to rack up the car with supplies and head twelve hours long over an estimated nine to stand in with the crowd marching on with signs and clear plastic backpacks.
