It’s official…there is a new hip cool band.

July 30th, 2008 No Comments

I feel conflicted telling you about them for two reasons: a) I like knowing what’s cool and doling out the information when I decide that said person “deserves” said information, b) I wasn’t the one who discovered them, that honor goes to either Mike or Pitchfork….not sure which one got there first. Even their name […]

California!

July 27th, 2008 No Comments

The last two days were spent driving across some pretty boring country. Idaho was the worst. The only cool part of Idaho was driving down US-20 and seeing the west side of the Teton mountain range. From the west, you can really tell that the Grand towers over all the other mountains in the range. […]

Those tiny differences

July 23rd, 2008 No Comments

More and more in my life I’ve found that all that is really important to me are the details, the small differences. It doesn’t matter if I’m talking about people, places, jobs, or songs. The difference between something that makes me happy and something that makes me sad or bored or annoyed…is really quite small. […]

Power Tourism with Liz and Alex

July 23rd, 2008 No Comments

Day 1 On Saturday morning, Alex and I packed up our camping gear and set off for Yellowstone National Park. We went in through the north entrance, and our first stop was Mammoth Hot Springs. To me, it looked exactly like the inside of a cave–except it was more colorful, and there was actually sunlight […]

Kayaking on the Okatoma

July 21st, 2008 No Comments

My friend Keith and I went kayaking yesterday morning on the Okatoma Rivers just outside of Hattiesburg, MS. We took the thirteen mile “upper” route and thoroughly exhausted ourselves. The river was pretty low, so there was not much current to help us along. That aside, it was a surprisingly pleasant trip and neither of […]

Will it blend?

July 17th, 2008 No Comments

I got my new credit card in the mail today, and needed to destroy the old one. I asked Alex if he had a pair of scissors for destruction purposes. He said he had something better: the magic bullet. However, the credit card was tougher than we thought, and refused to blend nicely. Alex then […]

Kiwano

July 16th, 2008 No Comments

While Ruth and I were at the beach, we shared an interesting fruit called a kiwano, or horned melon, as pictured below. It is essentially a yellowish-orange, spiky shell full of goo-covered seeds. The goo is what you eat, and it is quite the social event. One has to show off one’s teeth and tongue […]

And then I went dirt biking…

July 15th, 2008 No Comments

Yesterday after Alex got back from work, we drove out to Radersburg, MT and went dirt biking. Dirt biking is kind of like mountain biking, except the bike weighs 240 lbs. and the slightest touch of the throttle sends the bike flying over the ground. I basically got the hang of riding the bike pretty […]

Fairy Lake

July 14th, 2008 1 Comment

This weekend, Alex and I drove his big truck to the other side of the Bridger Mountains to Fairy Lake, which is a high altitude mountain lake with ultra-clear water, ringed by pine trees, and towered over by the mountains of the Bridger range. The scenery could not be beat. Fairy Lake After setting up […]

Yeah Montana!

July 12th, 2008 No Comments

I’m staying with my buddy Alex in Bozeman, MT. This is a picture of his living room, which I think speaks for itself. Montana is pretty sweet. I’ve gone on some short hikes in the past two days, including one up to the Montana State University “M” in the Bridger Range. Because the humidity is […]
