Oh my gawd, a blogpost! Really??

Surly 3″ Knard vs. Logging Truck tracks

I originally started this weblog as a way to keep in touch with my family and to share some of my outdoor pursuits, which at the time was mostly cycling.   Now I use facebook for that.  I used to bicycle to work for about 3/4 of the year, but my place of employment changed negating most of the content I’d ponder while to-ing and fro-ing.   Somewhere along the way I stopped riding bicycles much and would use them only infrequently.

 

Here’s the stuff we’ve been doing since my last post:

  • Geocaching.  This has been a whole lot of fun that all of us enjoy.  We get to mix lots of other stuff with it as well!
  • Camping.  The kids love it.  We get out summer and fall.  We missed the spring season.
  • Snowshoeing.  Great for getting around on the trails for winter walks and geocaching.  M0dern snowshoes are nothing like the ones I remember as a kid!  Good fun.
  • Snow biking.  After getting talked into this over a weekend camping trip in October, I elected to buy a “one trail bike to rule them” and ended up with a Surly Krampus.  It’s not a “fatbike” but rather a “chubby bike” that’s been fun to ride on snowy trails.
  • Mountain/trail biking.  What a hoot the Krampus is to ride on trails.  I bought the stock bike that has super wide handlebars which have caught on trees in narrow spaces, but so far it’s been fun to ride.    It’s also a good vehicle for geocaching pursuits.

So what’s next?  Who knows.  Perhaps more blog posts now and then.
