Garmin Alpha Review: Still the top dog?

A review of the Garmin Alpha 100 dog tracker
The underdogs and I like to go places.  Remote places...places no man has gone before.  At least no man not wearing blaze orange.  This means being prepared for the unknown.  The unexpected.  The lost.  This means gps tracking.

The Garmin Alpha is the Thundarr Barbarian of the dog tracking world.  Rugged, a little rough around the edges but the technology it wields may just bring peace in a post apocalyptic world.  This thing opens doors just not possible prior to owning it , and does so while sweating testosterone.  Yeah, I like it just fine.
As a reminder, my reviews are not technical specs or full of scientific testing.  My reviews are about how any given product may fit into or enhance the life of a mid-life fool like me.  There may be a few like-minded souls out there.  The wise ones, I call them.  Those who know to really disconnect, you need* technology.   Those of us battling mortality can often take solace in the distraction of ou…

Hunger strike

Intermittent fasting.

I am hungry just thinking about it.

So.  Much.  Suffering.  And yet...here it is coming up on this road to nowhere.  By all accounts there is some solid science around the whole idea of starving yourself.  Sound fun?  Let’s see where this goes.

So a few months back I decided to experiment with intermittent fasting.  I mean it feels a little bit like a cure-all.  A way to turn back the clock.  A way to cleanse that bruised liver.  A way to be twenty one years old forever!

Fasting is hard.  Like seriously hard.

Still, I need to make this work.  We were trying it as a team and it held promise but like all things that are hard, we bailed.  I deleted the fasting app which is sort of the death sentence for my latest "fix my life" plan.  Perhaps I was hasty.

I plan to start one  tonight.  See, I have many reasons to do this.  It worked for Phil Mickelson and he is my age.  Dude dropped like 10 percent body fat and looked at least 4 weeks younger.  I need this.  I am sort of an "all or nothing" sort of guy.  Food, beer, spending money...it all becomes a frenzy I can't pull out of.  That is why fasting is appealing.  It offers me nothing.  I can get behind nothing.

If Phil can do it, I can do it.  Be the Phil.  10pm tonight the fast starts.  Be sure to tune in tomorrow to see how it is going or which excuse I use this time for bailing and failing.  I plan to talk a bit more about this in the days ahead so tune in for the why and prepare for spectacular flaming and burning.

Faster than the tasty?
