I’m a bit of a maniac when it comes to having too many interests. Anyone that knows me can attest to my eagerness to try things and get involved with the things I really like. Two things I really like, like enough to make new blogs about: Adventure Touring and Photography. Adventuring.Bike is my cycling-centric […]
During my weeklong roadtrip with @tweetsandchirps, I kept a sketchbook and watercolor travel journal of our experiences and the wildlife we spotted. My full supplies list: Moleskine watercolor journal 5″x8.25″ Sable travel brushes in various sizes Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolor transferred to a generic tin Copic Multi-liner 05 Mechanical Pencil with 0.5mm blue lead […]
Today, we celebrated hitting a milestone of One Million registered accounts. Proud to be part of the team.
I’m now 90 days, 3 months, or a quarter of 2017 into my self-imposed 2017×365 Photography Challenge. I’ve challenged myself to take at least one photo with the intent of improving my technique. Why am I doing this? These 365 days of “intentional” shooting with specific ideas and techniques being practiced should help develop my skills […]
Ugh, Monday. Am I right?
My daily photography project is really helping me see light, angles, composition, and color all in a new angle. I used to be rather afraid of color. I always felt that my eyes didn’t quite see the world in the same as everyone else, but as I finally dipped into painting with acrylics, watercolors, and […]
20170125 I’m going to miss my Pebble 2 when Fitbit finally kills it. There is so much about the design and practically they executed so much better than Apple Watch and Android Wear devices. Today, the emoticon design was spot on. This isn’t a particularly difficult photo to take, but getting a glare-free shot of […]
Today marks 6 years since Audrey and I started dating. We started the day with a nice breakfast at Helser’s on Alberta. I recommend the smoked salmon hash. Then we went over to Powell’s City of Books to get some light reading material. We also hit up the Backyard Birdshop for some bird-related supplies and […]
Overall, 2016 was a rather successful year for me on so many levels. I had set several goals for the year, all of which were met with success to my own standards. Bikepacking the Three Sisters Three Rivers Route Bicycle Tour of the San Juan Islands Read 52 Books in a year Run a Marathon […]
At the beginning of 2016, I set out to read 52 books by the end of the year. It was a slow winter for me, so nearly half those books were read in just a few months. As summer rolled in, my reading slowed down. But as we found ourselves rained-in while bike touring the […]
I wrote a more detailed report over at my biking blog, Adventuring.Bike But here’s the slide show if you want a taster:
Neither Cabin nor Lake, this desert oasis made for a very pleasant weekend of birding, photography, and mountain biking on the edge where desert and high alpine forests meet. Read about Audrey’s birding adventure at the Cabin Lake Bird Blinds. I took the opportunity to ride my mountain bike around in preparation for a much […]
