Rocky Mountain Arsenal hiking and wild life

I realize it's been awhile since I've gone hiking or blogged about a hike. With Hunter coming home, one of the things he wanted to do when he got home on leave was to go hiking. Originally, I was going to take him to Rampart and hike to the fire watch tower at Devil's...

Essentialism, pursing less

Have you ever gotten the feeling the universe was trying to tell you something? I felt this way with Greg McKeown's book Essentialism. No, not because it was on the New York Times bestseller list, but because I kept stumbling across it. I caught an Art of Charm...

Rainbow Falls

It took waaaayyyy too long to get back out on the bike, but I finally got a chance to go ride. I took off to Rainbow Falls to meet up with the Colorado/Denver Dirt Bike Riders meetup group. They are a great bunch to go ride with, and even had a pair of 10's in their...

Self Reflection

Since my trip to Wisconsin a few weeks ago, I've had the house to myself. Three weeks, no wife, no dog, and no crayon eater. For me, being the introvert that I am, I relaxed and had moments of reflection. Actually, I had a personal come to Jesus meeting with myself....

Wisconsin

Years ago, Aj inherited her grandparents house in northern Wisconsin. When I say northern Wisconsin, I mean it's up there. The house is far enough out that we can see lots of stars, and even the Milky Way (the galaxy, not the candy bar). We've held on to it because we...

It’s getting tough

Improve Concentration and Focus

Improving concentration and gaining focus. Those are good goals, and who doesn't want to improve their focus or their ability to concentrate? I know I certainly do. It seems like I spend a lot of time with scattered thoughts, jumping around from one subject to another...

More people, 60K New Homes?

It's not often I come across story in the Denver Post that makes my jaw drop, but this one did it: Massive community planned in Aurora. Really? Denver isn't large enough, we need to add a new city to the Front Range? It's not enough that there's barely a discernible...

Afraid to ride, might start a fire

Haven't ridden in a while One would think living in Colorado, I'd be riding my dirt bike all the time or at least every chance I got. One would think that, but they would be wrong. Last year between work, Crayon Eater graduating and going to the Navy, trips, camping,...

Colorado has crappy drivers

I like to tell people, when they ask me where I'm from, that I am a rare thing. I am a Colorado Native. No, that doesn't mean I've lived here 5-20 years and now claim native status. It means I was born here, I've lived here most of my life. Which also means I've seen...
