I’m so happy I work for a company like Ride with GPS and have fun co-workers that all like to ride bicycles. It was decided that we would all take a long weekend trip out to TREO Ranch Bicycle Tours to ride some of the best routes in Eastern Oregon. Full Slide Show: There was […]
We decided to take a long holiday weekend drive over to the painted hills. Neither of us have never been there and as one of the “Seven Wonders” of Oregon, it has been on our minds the last few years. The weather turned out to be absolutely perfect, we saw some very nice scenery, and […]
Many weeks ago, Audrey asked “Should I do this?” Next thing I know, we’re driving 7+ hours to Aracata, California so that Audrey could attend Godwit Days. She would spend the weekend birding around with various groups, snapping photos, talking about birds, birding birds, and meeting her birding idol: David Sibley. Yes, THAT DAVID SIBLEY. […]
A story that really starts back when cameras captured our souls on ribbons of plastic call “film”, I liked taking pictures and shooting video. I still remember the day my father showed me how to focus on his 35mm camera. When he brought home a VHS camcorder that took full sized VHS tapes. How I […]
Last night I finished reading book number 13 out of 52 planned for 2016. According to the Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge, this puts me at 25% complete for the year. Barely into the second month and I’m eight books ahead of schedule. I suppose there will be weeks where I have other happenings that make […]
I started 2015 off pretty strong with a lot of reading, then had some months where I barely read at all. But overall, I’m pretty happy with the number of books I’ve read especially in the last few weeks of the year. Here’s a list of all the books I’ve read in 2015, in no particular […]
I just started riding a Santa Cruz Chameleon hard-tail as my trail bike. Bolted out of work a bit early on a glorious Friday afternoon to enjoy the trail before the rains dampened the weekend. I recorded bits of my ride using just my iPhone6, a Bluetooth Wireless Remote Control, and a small tripod. Although […]
After buying the Surly Pugsley, I was so eager to get out on some singletrack. My two buddies, Brad and Ken, piled into the car one early morning to try our bikes at a route along Coyote Wall. It’s over on the Washington side of the Columbia River near Hood River. A wide-open trail that […]
One of my goals for 2015 is to ride a 200km route every month. Through a series of errors and problems, I bailed after only 41 miles of the scheduled 126. So much for January. Let’s see if February is any better.
Riding out with Theo, Susan, Chris, John, and Paul, we covered 132 miles or 212km over 12 hours. But 44 miles into the ride, I got a migraine so I had to sit around for an hour waiting for the naproxin, ibuprofen, and two cans of Red Bull to kick in. I eventually got back […]
If you don’t know about “The Oatmeal“. You should. Audrey and I have signed up to run the Beat the Blerch Half-Marathon next month in Carnation, Washington. It’s going to be a hoot! What is The Blerch? He’s my inner sloth. The demon on my back telling me to eat more pizza. Run tomorrow. I […]
Happy Cat, as he is lovingly called now, wants to love and be loved. Today I added 5 new designs to my shop. Enjoy!
