I have sailed through the wide open fields on the sandy singletrack that stretches through miles of wilderness in Sun Valley, Idaho. I have dropped off wooden stunts and ridden log […]

What ever happened to the good old days of the shmorg, I wondered as I loaded up on the measly offering of pasta salad and sliced peppers. I stared around the room and tried to get a glimpse of the scenery. Pounds and pounds of makeup, fancy dresses covering up lumpy behinds, and lots of […]

So I had to drive from Albany to Cleveland yesterday and make a stop in Buffalo at my favorite bookstore. I must say the Thruway ranks up there as one of the most boring roads one can take across New York State. Not my choice I prefer the 88 or 31 or newly built 86 […]
