Trip to Colorado

I don't travel often anymore but each fall i feel a draw to see the changing colors of the aspens and visit the place i lived for the entirety of my adult life until about 6  years ago. The family of friends there has proved hard to beat and i've never felt more welcome and... Continue Reading →

Sierra Scrambler

Well I'm back! I never did really use the blog on the other web page so we'll see if I can actually motivate to write here again. Since moving to California it's been 6 years with a lot of ups and downs. We moved to Foresthill, then 2 years ago to the flatlands of the... Continue Reading →

About 15 or so showed up on a balmy 55-degree mostly sunny day, most of us overdressed...at least I was. I think snow when I fatbike so dress appropriately. But today... Continue Reading →

Tour de Trash with Sean

Sean led me on a big sweet loop from his house in Foresthill down to Auburn and back up home. He calls it the Tour de Trash because the middle portion of the ride, which follows the train tracks and parallel frontage roads, passes by some "interesting" houses and lots of scattered trash from hobo...
