Adventure: Suggestions, Five Bikes

I’m no bike expert. Let’s get that straight right from the beginning. (Famous for talking centimeters instead of millimeters.) But in today’s market, the average consumer has hundreds of bike options, something that can often make the entire process of … Read More

Adventure: The Psyche of Quantification

I wear a Garmin watch. This watch keeps track of my metrics while I’m out and about on things like longish bike rides. Now, I am wearing this watch for ONE reason in particular, a reason that I’m not going … Read More

Adventure: Salsa Fargo Titanium

I am no bike expert, and any bike is a good bike when it comes to being involved in the cycling world. I believe the bicycle is one of the most important inventions of all time and one that has … Read More

Adventure: Message from Phil

Never met Phil Gaimon. Probably never will but he has a very important, and humorous message for cyclists. Phil is a former pro so you can actually put him in the “great” category when it comes to pushing pedals. He … Read More

Adventure: Little Victories

My brother calls. “….a ride, up north, September.” Ya, okay, got it. I know of this. “It’s a hundred miles but the first seventy-five is what counts.” Okay, got it. “We might do such and such a ride, and such … Read More

Adventure: Latest Fun

Just finished responding to a YouTube comment. I wrote that I spent far too much of my life doing nothing other than photography. Far too much. I left behind so much of who I was, and after a twenty-five-year hiatus, … Read More

Adventure: Yoga Myths

If I can do it so can you. Yoga is an odd thing, surrounded by myth, legend, and endless viewpoints, but for me yoga was my savior, the physical exercise that began to pull from the depths of a multi-year … Read More

Adventure: Man Down

Or maybe it’s woman down? How does one tell? No idea. As I mentioned in my recent film, I’m back on the bike. After coming to a full understanding of just how badly we botched the virus response I realized … Read More

Adventure: Cycle of Life

Paco and Juanita are parents. Maybe they aren’t first-time parents but they now have a new batch of little ones to take care of. And at the same time, there was a death in the family. My best guess, impact … Read More

Adventure: Precious Seconds

Not entirely how sure how many times I’ve seen rainbows. From second grade through high school our family dabbled in Wyoming wherefrom about June to September you had rainbows nearly every day. Sometimes doubles. Sometimes triples. The physics are nothing … Read More

Adventure: Fly bye bye

Looking up. Who knew. Buzz the tower. Turns out there is a Hell of a lot of winged creatures above my house and many are of the metal, not feather. When this pandemic hit I figured it would be bye-bye … Read More

Adventure: The Love of Damage

Stay with me here. I honestly think most photographers would be better if they had cuts on their hands. Or scrapes, or blisters or road rash. I have to say, if I was going to rate myself on the “handy” … Read More

Adventure: Feather Types

Kinda odd that I find birding now. I think it was the Bosque that tipped the scales. Or maybe it was Wyoming as a kid. Or maybe being on the Gulf Coast near Corpus and seeing massive waves of migration. … Read More

Adventure: The Cloak

I love it when I mention winter in New Mexico and I’m met with “What are you talking about, it doesn’t snow in New Mexico.” This is incredibly common, which is why I often mention it, to gauge reaction. You … Read More

Adventure: Out of New Mexico

I love Out of Africa. Great movie. My favorite part you ask? The short flying scene where Robert Redford lands to pick up Meryl Streep and she asks “When did you learn to fly?” He answers, “Yesterday.” The subsequent flying … Read More

Adventure: BikeLife Episode 006

This is probably the last BikeLife post for a while. I’ve decided NOT to ride on the road until the virus is over. Today alone I’ve had three Amber Alerts on my phone, from the state of New Mexico, saying … Read More

Adventure: Cycle of Life

Life can be a cruel mistress. And it can end abruptly. As you know, I’ve been investing time in learning about birds, which until recently filled yet a tiny portion of a long, long list of topics I knew nothing … Read More

Adventure: In Circles

So, I got a trainer. I’ve been a cyclist, on and off, since high school but this is the first trainer I’ve ever had. I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. I thought riding it would be boring. … Read More
