Adventure: Lake Surprise

Martin Luther King Day. I creep toward the edges of the natural area as I look for a place to park for the night. The day moves from hot to cold to hot again. Tourists fill the lots as they … Read More

Adventure: Snow Day

Some of you are old enough to remember the blizzard of 1978. I was a midwesterner then, a young one. Indiana to be more specific. Northeastern corner to be precise. If I remember correctly, we missed the all-time record number … Read More

One of the many good things about my job is I get to meet a lot of very interesting, very talented folks. Another fun aspect of my job is that I get to give talks. A lot of talks. A … Read More

Adventure: Up and Away

Time to stretch out the comfort zone. I just need to remind you of something. Roughly six years ago I contracted Lyme Disease which proceeded to absolutely kick my ass. Contrary to what you may or may not have heard … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Ride Report

Finally here for an extended period of time which allows me to start rounding into shape, cycling shape to be precise. Now, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. When I say “rounding into shape,” I’m not talking about anything remotely … Read More

Adventure: New Tread

You might be wondering, “Milnor, have you lost it?” “A post about truck tires?” No, haven’t lost it but I plan on doing so as soon as possible. For anyone who subscribes to truck born adventure, you will understand where … Read More

Adventure: California Training

Lots of activity here in the old OC. A mission on the horizon, so there is training to be done. If I haven’t said this before let me state it now. I’m not a runner. I was, way back in … Read More

Adventure: California Training (for Texas)

Ya, so there’s this thing. In the middle of nowhere. A race. Point A to Point B. Or something like that. I’m gonna go. I need to train. It’s on foot, so no bike. The cardio is no problem. The … Read More

Adventure: Buffet of Good

Just to give you a little window into my mind. How about four things that might seem unrelated. Me no think so. Go see “Free Solo,” a film that documents climber Alex Honnold. Technically, I’m a climber too, but there … Read More

Read: North

Scott Jurek is an ultrarunning legend. Seeing as I know nothing about Ultrarunning, I’d never heard of him. He’s won everything that “these people” want to win. He decides to go after the speed record on the Appalachian Trail, which … Read More

Creative: Shifter Vlog 0005

“You know, you could edit that,” my wife said to me. “Ya, I could,” I replied.(The glitch in the voiceover, the motorcycle rumbling.) But before we go any further let me explain some things. I’m not entirely sure what I’m … Read More

Adventure: California Training

So the Bianchi is broken. Not entirely but enough to make things difficult. So yesterday I take out the Salsa, complete with 2.2 Racing Ralphs and slime tubes. Ten miles into the ride I realize I have no extra tube, … Read More

Creative: Vlog 0003

Yes, I’ve taken “test” out of the title, but make no mistake, I’m still feeling my way around. My life has taken on a new level of chaos at the moment. Personal, family-related issues, which I’ll spare you as well … Read More

Creative: Kip Brundage, The Cuba Connection

As you know, I am currently scheduled to co-teach a class in Havana in December. Picturing Cuba: Havana and the Countryside, is part of the Santa Fe Photo Workshops Cuba program, which has been happening for quite some time. For … Read More

Adventure: New Mexico Training

My first time hiking Baldy alone, which was fantastic. Not that I don’t enjoy hiking with friends, I do, but working alone allows for the mental and physical games we play. I left the parking lot at 6:15AM but should … Read More

Read: The Push

You would think this is a book about climbing, and it is, but it’s not as much about climbing as it is about a life. There is a translation issue here, and anyone who participates in a “fringe” sport will … Read More

Adventure: Tacoma Build

The Tacoma build is coming along nicely. Almost done actually. I know, I know, I’m never done, but I’m closer than you think. I’m not a total truck nut. Well, I am but it’s all about USING the truck that … Read More

Read: Over the Edge

Again, I’m a bit behind the times here but after a visit to the local climbing gym my taste for climbing literature has, once again, risen about the waterline. Over the Edge by Greg Child covers the adventure, history and … Read More
