  • Gettin’ High in Washington – The Climb Part Two
    on Sep 11, 2014 in Climbing
    After dinner, there’s not much else to do in Camp Muir. We have a short meeting with the guides about tomorrow’s plans, and the idea is floated that if conditions are perfect and the entire group agrees, maybe we will be summiting mount R...
  • Gettin’ High in Washington – The Climb Part One
    on Sep 9, 2014 in Climbing
    Thursday at 9AM. It’s go time. Chris and I are in a van with six strangers making nervous small talk. Since leaving Seattle, Mount Rainier has dominated our view, and the longer we drive, the bigger the mountain gets. As we were on final approa...
  • Gettin’ High in Washington – Genesis
    on Sep 8, 2014 in Climbing
    “Wheeeeew!” I exhale forcefully and, as I was taught, imagine I’m trying to blow out a candle three feet away. At thirteen thousand feet above sea level, the air is thinner, and something as simple as breathing requires concentratio...
  • Climbing Grand Teton
    on Aug 26, 2014 in Climbing
    It’s 3 AM, and the rain that had been hammering the thin roof of the tent most of the night seems to have mostly stopped, at least for now. At over 11,000 feet on a mountain in a bad storm, there isn’t much opportunity for sleep, especial...
  • Destination Fourteen Thousand – Climb Time!
    on Aug 19, 2013 in Hiking
    Four months ago, I was invited to climb a mountain with John Layfield and Michael Cole. Until that day, I mostly considered mountains something that planes fly over, or maybe motorcycles ride through, but never something to climb. I had no idea what...
  • Destination Fourteen Thousand – Rookies First Climb
    on Jun 13, 2013 in Hiking
    From that first little taste of hiking, I knew I was in trouble. Immediately following my inaugural climb on Garcia Trail, I drove directly to a large mountaineering outfitter and melted my credit card. Climbing specific boots, convertible hiking pan...
  • Destination Fourteen Thousand – Genesis
    on May 31, 2013 in Hiking
    Owen slaps his hands over my eyes once again, and bursts into another giggle fit. It’s impossible to be annoyed at my three year old nephew, perched on my shoulders for added ‘training weight’ as we climb an insanely steep trail. Ow...
  • Miscellania
    on May 29, 2013 in Hiking
    First off, the APC Rally, which I still owe a write-up about, did not kill me like many people thought it must have. Things never go exactly the way you’d hope, and the APC Rally was no exception. Yours Truly on the Kangaroo Crushing DR-650 I t...

    No really, I mean it this time…...
  • APC Rally – Prologue
    on Jul 27, 2012 in Motorcycle
    The APC Rally officially begins tomorrow from Wisemans Ferry in Australia, but for me it really began on Wednesday. Frantically packing, checking and rechecking that I had everything I need, then rushing to the airport only to sit for an hour on a gi...

  • APC Rally – Time To Go
    on Jul 24, 2012 in Motorcycle
    As of today, my training for the Australian Property Centre Rally has officially ended. Tomorrow at 10 PM I will board United Flight 839 and be magically teleported to the land down under. As soon as I land, things kick into high gear; I have a bike...
  • APC Rally – The Good, The Bad… and The Awful
    on Jun 17, 2012 in Motorcycle
    Forty-one days. That and a giant ocean are all that stand between me and the beginning of the Australian Property Centre Rally. I’ve been training nonstop since September for this rally, and I have to say at the tender age of 42, I am in the be...
  • APC Rally – A Day in the (New England) Dirt
    on Mar 26, 2012 in Motorcycle
    With two last place finish USDR races under my belt, and only 124 days until the APC Rally kicks off in Australia, one thing is obvious – while my overall fitness level is coming along nicely, I still need work on my dirt riding. Lots of work.
  • US Desert Racing Series – Round Two
    on Mar 19, 2012 in Motorcycle
     US Desert Racing Round Two Video Just like that, Round Two of the US Desert Racing Series has arrived. After my stunning performance in Round One (13th out of 15 in the  Senior One Beginner class) I’m ready to race again, and maybe even move...
  • US Desert Racing Series Round One Writeup
    on Mar 1, 2012 in Motorcycle
    It’s 8:58 AM on Sunday, February 4th. It’s a bit chilly, but a clear, crisp day. My heart is pounding harder than a Starbucks black eye double espresso ever makes it. In two minutes, my race career as “502S” will officially be...

  • APC Rally – Meet Dan
    on Feb 20, 2012 in Motorcycle
    Rather than going on and on about more boring running or my awesome ‘racing’ exploits, I thought I’d take a minute to introduce the reason I’ve entered the Australian Property Centre rally, my friend Dan. I met Dan back in 200...
  • APC Rally – Blather and Blabbing
    on Feb 19, 2012 in Motorcycle
    Good? Meh… Fun? Hell yeah! When I originally decided to race this race, it was really just to force me to learn to ride off-road better, in preparation for the APC Rally. I didn’t realize that racing was like crack, and as we all know, cr...
  • APC Rally – US Desert Racing Series Round One
    on Feb 11, 2012 in Motorcycle
    The day I’d been anticipating with a healthy mixture of fear and dread finally arrived. One thing I know about myself is I am very goal oriented. If I have something to strive for, I put maximum effort into whatever it takes to reach that goal.
