Bus adventure!

For those of you who don’t live in or near Denver, our annual bike to work day recently took place.  In a valiant attempt to single-handedly save the planet, I decided to participate.

This is mainly just a quick note to let you know that there are several different reasons to take the bus.  I have listed a few of them below:

  • Save the planet.
  • Check out the freaky deaky.
  • Wait in line for the express bus, only to find out that the normal one is only a few minutes slower.
  • Catch up on reading.
  • You get to deal with traffic (not).

And that’s about it at this point.  I actually do love riding the bus.  It’s always an adventure and is almost always a positive experience.  If you have public transportation where you live, get off your ass and give it a shot.  It’s not as lame or dirty as you think.

Coming attractions!

As usual, summertime has proven to be quite the journey.  Things have been really busy lately, and it won’t be letting up any time soon.

As a quick preview, this weekend I will be helping out with the Adventure Team Challenge, started and managed by World Team Sports.  This is an incredible opportunity to not only have our own adventure, but to also help those less fortunate to have what will no doubt be an amazing and life changing experience.  In addition, you can also expect to see posts for camping, fishing, and a national park or two in the next few weeks.

Stay tuned, see you all soon!

As I sit here on my balcony on a cool Colorado summer evening with chocolate milk in hand (it’s the little things), I can’t help but notice the sounds and lights of my surroundings.  Yes, we have your standard neighborhood folks walking their dogs, jogging, and for some what seems to be aimless wandering, but we also have sprinklers, very bright lights, the constant low hum of multiple air conditioners, and a steady flow of traffic.  No more than just a few days ago, every bit of this ceased to exist, at least long enough to help me realize the importance of a quiet, relaxing evening.
