I first met Bergur a couple years ago in my travels to Iceland. Born and bred Icelander, this dude gets after it. He is one of the few people who humor my “bad ideas”, then tops them with his own. Continue reading Be Like Bergur
Went fer a bike ride last week. Started with 2 bottles of water and a 20oz coffee. Also in the pack was a banana, 4 CLIF Continue reading Yo dude, crazy ride.
The Colorado trail is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing linkups of singletrack in the mountains you will ever experience. The section from Silverton to Durango holds a special place in my heart. Nearly 2 decades ago, it introduced this punk kid from New York to what REAL mountains were.

My office Holiday party was last night. Many of you are probably going to one soon if you haven’t already. Maybe it’s tonight even. What Continue reading Go ahead, be that guy.

I didn’t care much for them when I first got back so I just put them in a stack with all the other mediocre photos. But looking back at them now, they evoke so many great memories.

I have developed a soft spot for Sotol over the years and West Texas/Chihuahua is the place to find it. In all its peppery, smokey gut rotting goodness. I love every drop. Continue reading The booze don’t care.
Seriously though, it’s not like the fucking world is coming to an end. Well for a bit I thought it was, but that was before Continue reading Good doin’ in a time of no good.
