How Do You Take Your Steak

How Do You Take Your Steak

Grilling. It’s pretty much a camping requirement Not only does food seem to taste better when grilled, it’s healthier and it makes for a hell of an easier clean up which, when you’re living in a camper, can save valuable resources. Some people swear by […]

What’s Behind The Yellow Sign

What’s Behind The Yellow Sign

I grew up camping. Single mom. Three kids. We didn’t have a lot of discretionary vacation cash yet my mom still managed to show us just about every state in the continental U.S. and the campgrounds in them. We traveled by station wagon; a beat […]

Pit Falls

Pit Falls

Call us nuts, but we’re traveling in a 27-foot camper for three weeks with three large dogs who we, lovingly, call the Brat Pack. They have their quirks (what dog trainer’s dogs don’t) but we adore them. Hendrix is an 8 year old White Swiss […]

Georgia On My Mind

Georgia On My Mind

One of the best parts of this cross county adventure is that we have no real plan. With a Colorado ETA of August 2nd … or 3rd … maybe 4th, we have more than three weeks to spend where ever and how ever we want. […]

Today is Someday

 “Someday sounds a lot like the things people say when they mean never.” -Dolores Abernathy (Westworld) Some people spend their whole lives living in a constant state of repetition. Wake up. Go to work. Come home. Cook. Clean. Take care of the kids. The house. […]

Torreya Draggin’ Tails

I’m way behind on posting a couple race reports so though this race was a few weeks ago, I didn’t want to not write about it. There’s another one to follow as well.  I was first introduced to Torreya State Park in 2012. Fresh off […]

Croom Fools Run

Croom Fools Run

A couple weeks ago, I made a last minute decision to run the Croom Fools Run 16-miler. Though I’ve been running, I haven’t been doing what I need to for my other upcoming races so I figured a race would force me to get it […]

Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k

Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k

I ran the Doggies 4 Duchenne 5k last weekend. First 5k I’ve run in two years. As an ultra runner, it’s hard for me to justify paying to run 3.1 miles but I love this race and the charities it supports; The Humane Society at […]

Upcoming Races

Upcoming Races

It’s time to get my ass in gear. In the past two years I’ve done a mere two races; croom zoom 100, a dnf, and then a year later the Croom Zoom 50k (pretty much untrained) as the only course revenge that I could muster. […]

Still Streaking

Still Streaking

My streak has yet to break. Thirty nine days straight of at least two miles, 50 sit ups and 50 pushups. I’ll spare you the daily details on every pathetic little run or walk. Yes some days I’ve resorted to merely walking two miles but […]
