All hail the thread!

I made about a 4.4 miles of a 6.4 mile walk today, then I got a ride. I was suppposed to have a ride there and back but I did not. So it is a sore day. Maybe I should take a picture of my right foot . . .

Seems like a short walk for a ranger...

... and you may very well take a picture of your foot, but, please, do not post that picture here.

I used to walk 20+ miles (32+ kilometers) in full gear years ago, but that was not in a Ranger unit - I never was in a Ranger unit.

Plus, it was warm and humid which bothers my asthma.

But I did have a large coffee (24 oz or about .75 litre) with a nice chocolate frosted doughnut . . .

Listening to a local radio AM station running errands. Topic was the new Burger King Impossible Burger. Someone called with a new name. The Grass Whopper.
Also across the river in East Grand Forks. A whitetail doe and a couple of kids caught on camera playing.

I walked much more than I normally do on Sunday (just over 5 miles) in near 100F temps. My right foot is still swollen today. I did take a picture of my right foot... Not showing it it, though!

Zorch saw a picture of my right foot with a blister after I walked over 8 miles. The problem was, the last part was a gravel road with rocks scattered all over so there was no clear path to walk. The side of the road was clay with dried ruts to make it uncomfortable. The rocks was at least 2 cm in size or .8 inches. He did not want me to post anymore pictures of that foot. I just asked for people viewing it to ignore the big blister and count the toes. I am missing two on that right foot.

That sounds like a lot of sugar/carbs before a hike.....I might have to take the kayak out.

It makes for a good breakfast when I will be busy walking around so my sugar does not get too low. That has happened and the Registered Nurse was upset with me.

Major deployment of new applications at work is completed, as well as most of the "clean up" afterward. I may actually get to relax this weekend!

Then an Irish seven course meal - a six pack and a potato. Grab a six pack, a bag of chips, then sit down and watch a game . . .

Six packs tend to come in cans. Buy the whole case in bottles. And get the 2 for 1 family size chips/crisps.

Around here, I can get six packs in bottles. Some brands don't come in cans here, at least I haven't seen them.

Sadly I am stuck on the East Coast of the US where PBR, Miller Lite, Bud Lite, and Bud have large followings. I literally fumble for my wallet when I see something like 'Old Speckled Hen' on offer. But thankfully the craft beer industry has made inroads so there are alternatives to the mass market offerings.

Advice needed here. My doctor advises five fruit or veg a day and exercise. If it is made from hops and barley and there is a lot of running in the game would that count?

The exercise would be the 12 or 16 ounce curls as you bring the beverage container to your lips. The vegetable would be the dehydrated potatoes. One ounce of chips takes four ounces of potatoes. Add in any dip to include dairy. The beer is considered liquid bread, is full of trace minerals including silica which is needed for strong bones.

To help pass a kidney stone, drink lots of beer. To keep from getting them or dissolving one, drink or use an acetic acid solution commonly called vinegar.

I think any acidic juice will do the trick, so I prefer cranberry juice to vinegar.
When I was in hospital years ago the guy in the next bed had kidney stones. I overheard the doctor's bedside advice to drink a lot of water and eat little additional salt beyond that already in our foods when we buy them. Continuous flushing by normal osmosis of excess water is easy on the kidney. When it has to expend energy to do reverse osmosis (because the blood is not hydrated enough), it concentrates the salts and they may or may not make it out of the body with the remaining liquid. Dark yellow, pungent urine is a warning sign.

I know that I had a kidney stone removed surgically but they did not cut the skin.

The next 9mm one I passed with very little pain. I drank 4 ounces of vinegar several times a day for a few days. When it came out, it was as smooth as a river stone.

I eat more salt to get my sodium up and my potassium down. I have been in a situation where my sodium was too low and my potassium was too high. I felt like
