Our Outdoor Adventures

Not everything is big cities and tourist destinations. We love the outdoor adventures that allow us to explore so many of the wild places. You might find us camping in the desert or backpacking in the forests or skiing some fresh powder. Hopefully we can share the outdoors with you.

A Trip to Texas – Bandera 100k

Well Les and I took a trip to San Antonio to race the Bandera 100k this past weekend. Looking to get a top two finish, win some USATF prize money and come home with an auto bid in Western States. Also hoping that this little trip would be a break from some cold...

A Year In Review

As I look back on 2014 I recall the many great times and successes that have occurred. I had a few of my own adventures to give it a boost. It certainly wasn't the epic peak bagging year of 2013, but 2014 had many great accomplishments within its own right. This past...

Getting our Children Outdoors
