Hey, welcome back and thanks for visiting again. 🙂 I’ve been trying hard to do something different this year by posting something every month. I mean, it really hasn’t been THAT hard, and I like to do it…so it will probably continue on this way for the time being. But as it turns out, I […]Read More (bs24o)…The Backyard Sub-24 hour-Overnighter

OK, so I will jump right in. My friends Dave and Daniel and I started planning a camping/mountain biking trip about 5 months ago. […]Read More What a Trip…Seriously!
Well, shit. Seriously, holy shitha. (said like Belushi in Animal House) you know, when they accidentally killed the Dean’s horse. ‘Member? It happened. I would’ve never, in my wildest dreams, thought that it’d happen to me, but it did.

Hey all, thanks for joining me again. I thought maybe I would do something different this time, something that I haven’t really done before. I thought maybe I would just show off my Surly Long Haul Trucker a little. Ya know, just talk a little bit about it but mostly share some of my favorite pictures of […]Read More My Mother Truckin’ Trucker…
