Adventure: VanLife Episode Two

Enough about me. What about you? What do you think about me? Too much me here but simply continuing the great filmmaking experiment. Everything you see and hear was done in less than one day. Would I choose to work … Read More

Create: Everyday Expedition, Episode Two

Full disclosure. Not entirely happy with this but under the current life demand schedule it is what was possible. Now, this doesn’t mean I didn’t mishandle a few things. Creating work like this is often a balance between creating work … Read More

Adventure: The Scout

There is something to be said for having a look around. No goal, no objective, no mission or specific plan. “Hey, want to go hike Diablo Canyon?” “Sure.” What comes from a trip like this is the freedom to think … Read More

Adventure: Everyday Expedition, Episode One

This is a test. This is only a test, of the emergency broadcast system. So, I’ve had this idea for quite some time. “Everyday Expedition,” those excursions that people like you and I can pull off with a nine-to-five job. … Read More

Adventure: Pecos National Park

It’s always interesting to visit a place like this during a time like this. The Stable Genius, infected by the virus he claimed was a hoax, is doing laps around Walter Reed while his supporters hunt for gangs of rogue … Read More

Adventure: More Field Time

Getting away isn’t easy. And once you are away cutting ties with “home” is even more difficult. Once you spend enough time on the screen it feels like the screen is “normal” life when it is in fact the polar … Read More

Create: Journal Entry, Found Paints

There was this sale. It was an estate of some sort. A family member no longer. The other members sifting through the pieces, filing paperwork, and attempting to make sense of a future missing a piece. Articles of belonging, faith, … Read More

Create: Learning a New Lens

Great photography is NOT about great photography equipment. Sure, equipment can assist and it does make a difference what platform you choose. Think about 35mm, 120mm, 4×5, 8×10, or any flavor of digital and you have a virtual buffet of … Read More

BikeLife: Maintenance

When I was younger I never fully grasped the idea of maintenance workouts. I was unruly. “Maintenance?” “You dusty old coots, what the heck are you talking about?” Well, let the fifty-one-year-old version of me explain. At fifty-one, my body … Read More

Adventure: Los Alamos Highs and Lows

I like the Los Alamos area. Have since I was an assistant on a ten-day job inside the Los Alamos National Laboratory back in the mid-1990s. Less than an hour from Santa Fe and fewer people as well. I posted … Read More

Adventure: Out and About

It’s been a good few weeks, but limited none the less. We are doing our best to maintain a very manageable level of adventure while C19 continues to ravage the country. New Mexico cases are on the rise, as they … Read More

BikeLife: Seasonal Upswing

I would classify the Santa Fe Ski Basin as a classic area ride. I remember the first time I did this ride, back on my Trek 520 with front and rear racks and bar-end shifters. I’ve subsequently done this ride … Read More

BikeLife: Episode 008

Vortex of slateA push from CortezA pull from the thirst ofThe great aridnessColliders, once, these great beastsWe hope for them yet knowControl is just beyond us, alwaysRhythmic breathing and the cadenceOf thought when left aloneThese are the power spotsMoments unadorned … Read More

Adventure: Cruel Little Things

Oh, what we see when we encounter nature. Little windows into the harshness of the wild. The food chain, the dashed hopes of the concerned. I was tipped off to this little episode by the frantic sounds of a songbird. … Read More

Adventure: On the Fly

I know what you are thinking. “Milnor, where is all the 8k, “cinematic” streaming video of this little adventure?” Oh, just know it’s coming. It’s being color corrected in a secret lab near Sacramento. The bokeh is being copyrighted as … Read More

Adventure: Exposure and Sweat

I have an admission to make. I love watching bike touring videos. The more remote the better. The people who are riding from Patagonia to Alaska or some other voyage that to most people seem crazy, unrealistic, dangerous, or impossible. … 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
