river miles


So I’ve been reading Ron Chernow’s book on Hamilton, and I’ve found some facts that I would love to be made into fanfics.

1. Washington called Hamilton ‘my boy,’ and the other aides called him 'Ham’ or 'Hammie.’

2. Alexander made many rides across the Hudson River, riding 60 miles a day, for five days, riding like a man possessed. He eventually had to stay in a town he was delivering a letter to, telling Washington in a letter the reason he was so late; “I have been struck with a slight fever, and severe rhumuthic (however you spell that) pains.” After he recovered, he was struck ill by a severe chill, and doctors thought he wouldn’t make the night. He did, and left, collapsing outside of Morristown. (Ham needs to take care of himself smh)

3. Washington brought out his anger on Hamilton.

4. Alexander’s relationship With John is called the most intimate relationship he had in his entire life.

5. Lafayette referred to himself as Alexander’s brother, but he may have had a small crush on Alex.

6. Hercules Mulligan was Alex’s first friend fuck off Burr

7. Alexander’s horse was shot out from under him in the Battle of Monnmuth (however you spell that), was badly injured, and had to retreat.


Can You Identify This Man?

Police investigators in the town of Delphi, Indiana, are pleading for any information or identification on the man pictured in the bottom photograph. He is believed to be a suspect or potential witness in the murders of two local girls, Abby Williams (13), and Liberty (Libby) German (14).

The two girls were reported missing on February 13, 2017, after taking a hike in a popular beauty spot. The last time the girls were seen was on the Monon High Bridge, where Abby took a photograph of Liberty and uploaded it to social media. The next day, their bodies were discovered close to a near-by river, about a quarter-mile away from the bridge. Police have since informed the media that DNA evidence has been recovered from the scene, though they are refusing to comment on the nature of the evidence.

Police have also obtained the above picture of the unknown suspect, and are asking for help in identifying the man. If you were in or around the Delphi region between February 13-14, you might have seen him. Here are some identifying features:

- Blue jeans
- Blue windbreaker jacket, with a possible scarf
- Brown cap
- Stockily built
- May have been hitchhiking on the day the girls disappeared
- Might be a keen outdoorsman/ have intimate knowledge of the area

Please, if you can help in any way, call the Delphi tip line at 844-459-5786. Your tip will be handled anonymously. Please help bring the killer(s) of Abby and Liberty to justice!

The oil industry needs to #RezpectOurWater and stop building the Dakota Access Pipeline

I am 13 years old, and I’ve spent my whole life drinking and fishing from the Missouri River in North Dakota. As members of the Standing Rock Tribe, my family has lived here for generations. Today our lives on the reservation are still defined by the river.

But now an oil company wants to build a pipeline that will cross the river a mile away from our reservation, carrying 570,000 barrels of crude oil across each day. We’re terrified that it could leak into our water, but the company doesn’t seem to care. We, the youth of the Standing Rock Tribe, refuse to let them risk our water and lives without a fight. So far over 130,000 people have signed our petition.

18 year old Jean Pierre Orlewicz of Canton, Michigan, is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Daniel Sorenson.  After stabbing the 26 year old 13 times, Orlewicz used a hacksaw to decapitate the body and threw Sorenson’s torso into a nearby field where he set it on fire.  In an effort to disguise the victims identity, Orlewicz also took a blow torch to Sorenson’s hands and feet.  The head was later found in a plastic container dumped in a river nearly 15 miles away from the scene of the crime.

Despite Orlewicz’s contention that he had acted in self defence, the jury found him guilty of murder and mutilation of a corpse.  Speaking at the trial, County Prosecutor Robert Moran stated:

‘Where was his emotion when he testified that he had to kill Mr. Sorensen? When he had to cut off his head? He testified like he was ordering a pizza. A typical day. That’s him. That’s cold.’

#TravelTuesday with BLM Wilderness Specialist Bob Wick to Idaho’s Canyon Country!

Southern Idaho’s Snake River Plain’s basalt uplands are dissected by several deep river canyons that offer spectacular scenery and world-class bird viewing and photography opportunities among their recreation offerings.  Just south of Boise is the Morley Nelson Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. This area supports one of the world’s densest concentrations of nesting birds of prey and hosts about 800 pairs of falcons, eagles, hawks and owls that arrive each spring to mate and raise their young.  Catch a glimpse of the area’s birds of prey at Dedication Point, a dramatic overlook on the rim of the Snake River Canyon. A ¼-mile trail with interpretive signs offers insights about the birds, geology and other wildlife. 

Photo tip: Photographing moving wildlife, especially flying birds, requires a very fast shutter speed.   I typically use 1/1000 of a second or faster.  By panning your camera and shooting images as you match the speed of the wildlife, you’ll get sharper images and also blur the background, creating a greater sense of movement.

A bit further from Boise, but still within an easy drive, is the Bruneau Canyon Overlook. The Overlook is the only readily accessible spot from which to view this deep canyon carved through basalt and rhyolite by the Bruneau River, recently protected by Congress as a Wild and Scenic River. The canyon appears to be narrower than it is deep which is almost the case – the opposite rim is only 1,300 feet away from the overlook, and the drop from rim to riverbed is 800 feet. From this spot near the northern terminus of the 60-mile canyon, you can view the wild and scenic Bruneau River tumbling out of the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness.  The viewpoint provides a taste of one of the more remote corners of the U. S. – the Bruneau-Jarbidge-Owyhee River Canyon system.  These canyons offer whitewater boating, fishing, hunting, and unlimited exploring for properly equipped adventurers.

Photo tip: Canyons and other landscapes with sharp differences between bright sun and deep shade surfaces can be especially hard to photograph as your camera’s sensor can only pick up a certain range of light – much less than your eye can.  Cloudy days and the time right before sunrise and right after sunset have much lower range of brightness and are perfect for capturing these landscapes.  A technique called High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography is another method for capturing landscapes with highly contrasting light levels.  HDR software blends multiple images taken at different exposures.

This is pretty cool, I’m thinking Insomnia for Alaska and Pearl Harbour for Hawaii.


Every year, tourists flock to The Actun Tunichil Muknal, a cave near Belize, which is a Maya archaeological site and the home to a number of skeletons. The most popular being The Crystal Maiden - a skeleton of an adolescent that was used as a human sacrifice. After 1,000 years, the skeletal remains calcified, resulting in the skeleton appearing to sparkle in the light. If you want to catch a glimpse of this rare relic then you have to know how to swim as the cave contains a 2 mile river which one must swim up to reach The Crystal Maiden.

When Foreign researchers first came to Alola, they believed for the longest time that this was an entirely different species of Pokemon. The Alolan Golduck is far more Aggressive and Territorial than its relatives in other Regions, jealously defending miles of River and Swamp with Poisonous Spurs on their Arms and Legs. Males will use their Thumb Spurs to “grease” up the Fur on their heads with Poison– the bigger and brighter the hairdo, the more fit the Male. Due to living in Murkier Waters, the Alolan Golduck has evolved true Psychic capabilities, of which they use to “see” their prey in the mud and muck.

because Golduck is a Platypus dammit

Wife and stepson charged with murder of KKK leader Frank Ancona

The wife and stepson of a Ku Klux Klan (KKK) leader who was found shot dead have been arrested and charged with his murder.

The body of Frank Ancona, the self-appointed imperial wizard of a Missouri-based chapter of the KKK, was found on Saturday (11 February) on the banks of the Big River, around 70 miles southwest of St Louis.

According to an autopsy conducted on Sunday, the 51-year-old died as a result of a gunshot wound to the head. Now his wife, Malissa Ann Ancona, 44, and her son, Paul Edward Jinkerson Jr, 24, have been charged with first-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and abandonment of a corpse in connection with his death.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Monday that according to a probable cause statement, Jinkerson shot Frank Ancona as he slept in his bedroom on Thursday before his body was driven to an area near the river and dumped.

According to police, when they searched Ancona’s home, they found “extensive blood evidence” in the master bedroom.

Francois County Sheriff’s Detective Matt Wampler wrote in court documents that Malissa Ann Ancona told police her biological son, Jinkerson, killed Ancona while he was asleep. It was stated that she attempted to destroy blood evidence and altered the crime scene to conceal evidence, and that she was acting in concert with Jinkerson.

A US Forest Service employee found Ancona’s car abandoned on Thursday but he was not reported missing until the following day.

The Park Hills Daily Journal stated that police interviewed Malissa Ann Ancona and her son in their home with “all indications” showing Frank Ancona had been killed.

Malissa Ancona reportedly told investigators that she had last seen Frank early on Wednesday, before he disappeared claiming that he had a call from work that meant he had to drive across the state.

On his website for the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Frank Ancona is depicted wearing a white hood in front of a burning cross on the website.

“The media will tell you the KKK is dead, gone, irrelevant,” the website reads. “They have tried since the birth of the Klan to downplay the influence and power of the KKK … We cannot allow this. The time has come to awaken from our hypnotic sleep before we and our children wake up to a hell we can never escape from.”
