Wilderness Walk: Double-Stuffed

New, comments

It's my fault. I forgot to do the walk yesterday. Instead of posting some half-baked late version, though, I decided to double up today. The result is a walk that is heavy on Wild news, and some other things too.

Today also marks the start of school for many kids.... which means one thing: we are that much closer to hockey.

For our music today, enjoy the vocal-less version of the loudest concert I've ever been to: the little brother of Dream Theater: Liquid Tension Experiment
