• Two-Person Kayaking

    by  • July 10, 2016 • 0 Comments

    Karen and I spent a couple of hours yesterday on Standley Lake trying out a two-person kayak.  It was fun, and no one fell in.  We spent the whole time weaving around the lake as we couldn’t make it track in a straight line.  But we’re the first ones to admit we don’t know...

    Standup Paddle Boarding

    I’m going to try all of the rentals at Standley Lake, and my friend Amanda was up for getting out on the water on a standup paddle board (SUP).  She grew up in Michigan, so she was excited to get out on the lake.  Personally, I hadn’t paddled anything since I was in high...

    Nyree and I were on the south shore of Standley Lake a few weeks ago, and it was time to check out the north shore where all of the cool stuff is. We ended up renting Hydrobikes on June 18th, 2016, and I put a Sway together of our morning. It was so much fun,...

    Mesa Verde with Dad

    I’d been trying to get to Mesa Verde for the last few years but plans kept falling through.  I’ve lived in Colorado since I was in the sixth grade, and I saw it when I was little but I don’t remember it.  I asked my dad if he was interested, and he was!  He...

    Day Trip to Dallas

    I took a trip in a single day to Dallas with some friends on April 30th.  It was a blast!  We’re going to do a day or weekend trip like this about every three months, finding somewhere cheap to fly and grab a meal. I’ve been experimenting with Microsoft Sway and I put the...

    Getting Healthy

    by  • April 15, 2016 • 0 Comments

    It seems like I get further and further away from what I would consider “healthy” every year.  To me, being healthy means no processed junk, no artificial colors or sweeteners, and lots of plant-based foods.  At the end of 2015, I’d had enough of the nonsense.  I went to the Center for Medical Weight...

    Denver Blizzard 2016

    It was 70 degrees yesterday, and the weather has been really nice for a while.  I went for a run in a short-sleeved t-shirt and running shorts and it was comfy.  There have been many opportunities for this type of exercise lately, and I’ve been taking advantage of it.   They said we were...

    New Laptop

    by  • December 4, 2015 • 0 Comments

    In the spring of 2011 I bought my first laptop, the ASUS Slate.  It was pretty spiffy for its time, with a 64GB solid-state drive, 4GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i5 CPU.  The whole thing was in a 12-inch tablet of sorts, but it could run a full OS and all of my applications. ...
