On Africa’s Roof, Still Crowned With Snow

Mon, 21 Jan 2008 20:42:23 +0000

The New York Times travel section has taken on Kilimanjaro. It brought back fond memories of the climb that I did there two years ago, at about this time. The writer took the same route and is good for waxing nostalgic…

Do What You Love and Starve

Wed, 12 Dec 2007 17:57:13 +0000

I came across this article today and it cracked me up, if only because of the title: Do What You Love and Starve The hefty dose of cynicism aside, he actually makes some good points regarding how to make a career transition to ‘something you like’, although I’m still an optimist that you can do […]

Minnesota Bridge Collapse

Thu, 02 Aug 2007 15:17:14 +0000

A national news story has hit a little closer than I’d like after the I-35 bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River in my hometown area of Minneapolis. I found on when I headed to the gym – it was on all the tvs there. I stared at them, dumbfounded, for a few minutes before rushing […]

Vino Dopes

Tue, 24 Jul 2007 17:42:58 +0000

*Sigh* I wasn’t able to watch the TT, but when Vino sprung back yesterday for the fantastic stage win, I said to myself, “I hope that Vino doesn’t end up like Landis after his amazing Stage 17 ride last year.” Such a disappointment…Vino was definitely my favorite rider and I loved watching him two years […]

Biking in Colorado

Sat, 30 Jun 2007 21:17:05 +0000

Charlie and I just returned from a two-week vacation to Colorado to ride our lovely bicycles. Our 6-day ride that he helped to guide I just hoped to survive took us from Breckenridge to Mt. Princeton to Gunnison to Peonia to Leadville to Aspen to Breckenridge (in some order like that) and went over 8 […]

Summer in Portland

Fri, 01 Jun 2007 03:53:47 +0000

Although it will probably rain for the entire month of June, the past ten days have made Portlanders think: summer is here! And, with summer, comes camping! And bikes! And vacations! Since everyone is so pressed for time nowadays, Charlie and I decided to combine all three and are heading to Colorado in two weeks, […]

Omaha- Somewhere in Middle America

Mon, 30 Apr 2007 18:02:09 +0000

It’s been awhile since I’ve been to Omaha – a sprawling suburbian town with a cute, albeit very small, old town with cobblestone streets. Charlie and I ventured off to Middle America for 36 hours and the wedding of his pledge dad, a soccer coach who will be moving to Boise in two weeks with […]

What I’m Reading: Afghanistan, PINK and Google Advertising

Wed, 21 Mar 2007 17:10:11 +0000

I don’t usually write about what I’m reading, but right now my plate is full of awesome randomness. Since I take the bus to and from work, I am trying to take advantage of this time by reading more. For fiction, I just finished Kite Runner, which is a fantastic book that weaves in historical […]

February Fun

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 17:44:18 +0000

As promised – here’s my MSN link…The Best Thing About My City. They liked the series so they’ve decided to make it an ongoing thing, which is exciting. Up next? The most overrated thing…anyone have suggestions on overrated Portland activities? I’ve got some fun (domestic) trips planned – one to Omaha for a wedding (I […]

January Update

Sun, 21 Jan 2007 22:58:07 +0000

It’s been awhile since I updated, so I thought I’d drop a quick line – I’ve been incredibly busy this month. I’ve started writing travel guides for, a website in PDX that specializes in honeymoon vacations and travel registries, which I think is an awesome idea. When you get married, instead of getting another […]
