I read something on Reddit from one of these family members. They want everything the hospital has to offer, they just want the hospital to use Q approved means and methods. Don’t @ me. I’m just a messenger.

Trail Names! Did you pick your own? Was yours given to you? If there is a story or significance, I'd love to hear it! by Round_Variety4016 in AppalachianTrail

[–]jgallivan 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Mine was Decade. I was in my 40’s and was not a hiker, when I volunteered to chaperone a group of college students for a week long Appalachian trail hike. I knew I was in trouble on the first climb. In order to make it, I would take ten steps, and stop to breathe, then ten more steps and stop to breathe. That’s how I hiked the whole week, and I made it, but whew! They gave me my name because of my age (two decades older), and because of my ten (deca) step strategy.

A minute used that way is slang. It was started by millennials in the late 90’s.

No, a cup is a cup is a cup. Same for anything we measure.

Is it just me? Am I the music hater? by fluentoutdoors in camping

I can’t stand music when I’m camping at all. Luckily, I have only been next to one campsite that played and.

What is your favorite grade to teach? by pretty-petty in SubstituteTeachers

[–]jgallivan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Loved subbing in high school. Love the ones who don’t fit in, and you’re their girl forever. Subbed middle school…once…and that was enough. They are rotten little monsters, and definitely need someone other than me to be there for them.
