#MariposaLive

Well… recorded live action 🙂 I spent a little time today putting together a few videos from the weekend. I’m not done going through all of the footage yet but I’ve run out of time for the moment so I’ll published what I have gotten to so far. The one I personally like is the …

A Monday without work

I remember the first few days after I finished up at IBM… it was an odd yet pleasant sensation. Doing what I have on my list of things to do, at my pace, is a nice feeling. And so is planning and looking ahead to the next adventure. Here’s a rough approximation of what it …

Heading back to Vermont for Autumn colours

As I’ve said before, it’s been an unusual year so it’s really satisfying to be doing something we’ve done for a few years now… heading down to Vermont with some bikes to enjoy the beauty on display. As we were leaving Andrea was getting caught up on the day’s news… it was very saddening to …

Wow… 2013 Buses at Bon Echo Already!

Amazing how time flies… although for me this year has been an unusual one. Still, it’s the end of September and I’m not mentally prepared. This will be the 3rd time I’ve headed to Bon Echo for a VW campout, and each one has been different. Cold, wet, sunny, windy, fun, and knitting are all …

Getting out and about – BoTC 2013

This year has been quite a different year, for lots of obvious reasons. The result has been a lot of different activities for me though, and that came as a surprise. Perhaps it shouldn’t have. Obviously all of the time spent in the halo meant I couldn’t be active the way I normally would be. …

Kingdom Trails 2012

For a second time Andrea and I have wrapped our cycling season up with a trip to the Kingdom Trails in Vermont. That, coupled with a trip to Pisgah to kickstart the season for a second time… I think it was a great way to open and close the season. Not that we didn’t ride …

Back to back Westy weekends

I enjoyed the experience last year and it was even better for 2012… the only time I have two VW camping events that I can be at right after each other. All the events I get to are fun all on their own. And they’re all unique. My schedule doesn’t often let me have a …

A weekend at Watkins

What a blast! It was great to have some time to get caught up with people I only get to see once or twice a year. And to talk about things I generally only mull over in my own mind. In this case it was all VW stuff, with a little photography thrown in. And …

Becoming a grease monkey

I’ve worked on bicycles for years and love them. The simplicity and elegance always strike a chord with me. It doesn’t take many tools to do the basics, a few wrenches and hex keys. Owning an old VW camper is another matter. Of course I knew what I was signing up for when I bought …

Babe 101: Monitoring and Supporting

Owning my VW camper has been exactly what I expected it would be… a learning experience. And I’m enjoying it. I’ve gone through some surprise learning curves as well as some I was prepared for and actually capable of dealing with in an informed way. Over the past month or two I’ve been trying to …
