The Dogecoin Network

March 3, 2014

THE DOGECOIN NETWORK: HOW EXACTLY DOES ALL OF THIS WORK?How is the Dogecoin network set up? How are transactions anonymous? How can you be sure it is completely secure? These are all questions that I have seen posed countless times about Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies. So here's my attempt to explain this phenomenon of the Internet.DECENTRALIZATIONThe first thing you must understand about the...

How Dogecoin has changed me

March 2, 2014

Today I tried to think back to when I first discovered Dogecoin, and you know, I can't even remember how it happened, it just did. Someway or another I stumbled across?/r/dogecoin?on a cold winter's afternoon last December. After three months of being involved in the community, I decided it was time to look back and see how it has changed me.The first thing that comes to mind is the knowledge I ha...

Dogecoin. Wow.

March 1, 2014

One thing that I have become especially fascinated with in the past few months is?Dogecoin. Now, you may be thinking, "But its a joke right?" What started out as a joke has become a real currency that people are using, and taking to the moon. Here's why.The first reason that dogecoin will succeed is because of the high volume of coins. Unlike Bitcoin, which will have ~21 million coins in circualti...

Northern Tier: Crew E080413I - Final Trip

August 12, 2013

My last crew of the season came from Indiana. They were a really great bunch, but all of the scouts were young. Because of this, we decided to take a very portage-light trip. The first day we went up the Moose Chain to a nice campsite on Sucker Lake. Nothing really exciting happened that day. The next day we headed over to Basswood Lake, and I started trolling as we paddled. That day I caught 7...

Northern Tier: Crew E072713M - Little Sag

August 3, 2013

This last trip was probably one of my favorite trips of the summer. We did the Little Saganaga Loop which was an 80 mile trip in 5 days. The first day we got all the way to Knife Lake by mid afternoon. We were lucky enough to find tons of juneberries growing right near our campsite, so we spent some time gathering them and had a juneberry pie the first night. It was really good and the scouts enjo...

Northern Tier: Crew E071413K

July 24, 2013

For this trip I pretty much took the same route as one of my other trips. We went through Knife, Kekekabic, Fraser, Thomas, Ensign, and then back into base. Instead of rambling on forever, I'm just going to let the pictures tell the story. First Lunch of the trip. Evening Snack on Knife Lake Lake Trout at last! Berries Well, at least something ate it. Firs...

Northern Tier: Crew E070513C

July 13, 2013

This last trip was surprisingly similar to my first trip. The crew was from Texas, and we did pretty much the same route, just backwards. So the first day once we got going we paddled up the Moose chain to Sucker Lake for the night. We got there pretty early and the crew wanted to go fishing, so we spent some time fishing. They caught a couple of smallmouth bass that we kept and cooked with dinner...

Northern Tier: 4th of July

July 5, 2013

Fourth of July on base is a lot different than the fourth in town. A lot of people drove into town to see the fireworks, but instead, I and a few friends took a hike to a lake to do some fishing. We hiked about 2 miles down to Ennis Lake, did some bouldering down to the water and did a lot of fishing. Unfortunately the only things we caught were rocks, but it was still a great time and...

Northern Tier: Crew E062513C

July 2, 2013

I just got back from another successful trip. This trip was unexpected because I got my crew at dinner on my day off. Their original interpreter wanted to be the interpreter for his home troop that was coming the next day, so we made a trade, and I get an extra day off! This crew drove all the way from Memphis, Tennessee for the trip and by the time I got them, they were pretty much ready to go. I...

Northern Tier: Crew E061713A

June 25, 2013

I don’t think I could have asked for a better first trip or first crew. The crew I got flew in all the way from Tyler, TX from the East Texas Council. The first day of checking out all the gear went very smoothly and the advisor had all the paperwork organized beautifully so the check-in process flowed without any hiccups. They came here pretty much wanting to do everything: paddle, fish, see wate...
