Introduction I have a love of skiing, cycling and writing. The evolution of could be traced back many years to when this cheesehead put skis on for the first time and snowplowed down a frozen mound that barely deserved the title of "hill". Since that "Weeeee" filled day, most of my outdoor bliss has been a product of the mountains. Here I share the dharma of the mountains and hope that even if I'm not informing, I'm at least entertaining. I'm not writing for resort promotion, I'm not writing to convince you what gear to buy (although I will give you my honest opinion of what I've used and abused) and I'm not writing for self-promotion. I'm instead narrating my story of recreating in the west and the passion I have for preserving the sanctuary of nature.
Interests backcountry skiing, cycling, backpacking, western U.S. history, organizing (yes I consider that an "interest"), writing
Favorite Movies The Seven Samurai, The Big Lebowski, The Blues Brothers, No Country for Old Men, Fargo

You get to ride the big roller coaster three times in a row. What will keep your dad from taking a bite out of your candy apple?

Nothing. He taught me there are two kinds of eaters: the quick and the hungry.
