John Long: Guilty Pleasures

Tahoe Moderates
I was gambling: two kings face down in front of me, and a third in the middle of the table, along with two spades and half my chips. I shoved my remaining $150 into the middle.

Concurrent with the studies, BPA was shown to leach from plastic water bottles, the kind most of us climbers use.
