It was pretty simple: there's no way we could go to New Hampshire and Vermont and NOT go into Canada. Neither Kubo nor I have been anywhere in Canada, and this was the perfect chance to do it relatively easy. Like most of our plans, a simple idea of just visiting for a few hours… Continue reading 48 Hours of Québec
I originally wrote this blog in July 2013 after visiting Centralia, PA on my way to a mountain bike race in Allentown on my cycling blog. I decided it needed to come out of the archives as it is a unique roadside attraction to visit if you're in the area! A few months ago Matt… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Exploring the town burning from below – Centralia, PA
"Do I really need my job, and do we really need to go home?" That was the theme of my morning as I struggled to wake up on the final morning of our Bighorn Mountains adventure.

Kubo jumped up, started preparing some coffee and sandwiches… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 4: Thermopolis and Kcymaerxthaere

As… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 2: Shell Falls and Paradise Falls
A four day weekend that included me taking a rare single day off of work can only mean one thing... adventure time!! I didn't want to stick around home while using a precious PTO day, so Kubo and I packed up Fozzy (my beloved Subaru Forester) and hit the road to northern Wyoming and the… Continue reading Chasing Waterfalls & Adventures in Wyoming’s Bighorn Mountains – Day 1: Crazy Woman Canyon and West Tensleep Falls

I'm guilty of this,… Continue reading Workin’ my way around Wyoming – the bright side of work travel in this wonderful place!
