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

Winter comes in waves. When temps begin with a four there is always room for discussion. When temps begin with a three much less so. And when temps begin with a two, or one or with a zero there is … Read More

Adventure: There is Always The Time

Beauty. Molecules. Us, them, it as it should be. All one and the same. Breath as frozen vapor. Single digits. Layered up but wondering about the combination. Oxygen choices. Limited conversation. Friends don’t need to say a thing. Trail winding … Read More
