When we go canyoneering it usually means the kids hang at camp with an adult or two while the rest of the adults go adventuring. We wanted to shift that focus towards a kid centered trip. We thought it would just be us but quite a few of our friends thought it was a great [...]
Tory said he wanted to ski the terrain park. I didn’t think he’d hit any of the tricks… pardon the poor camera work, I wasn’t prepared to keep up apparently.
We headed down to Moab for an extended weekend of riding, which included a day on Slickrock trail. Tory wanted to give it a try too, and ended up riding the entire practice loop. He had to walk much of it, of course, but rode a whole lot more than we expected. Here’s a little [...]
Quick weekend trip to the Uintas with the DeFords, Lesters, and Mark & Seneca.
Camping and biking in Brian Head! Neither Kari nor I had ever been to Brian Head, so we headed down there with the Lesters and our bikes to explore the acclaimed mountain bike trails and get the kids outside. The biking was actually very good, although it was extremely volcanically dusty and hard on the [...]
Earlier this spring we spent a few days in North Wash with Brad, Babbie and their family – including Babbie’s mom and brothers. It was a nice trip, with enough adults around for watching kids while others canyoneerd. Brad and I had the kids for an afternoon, so we went to the alcove at Hog [...]
My first job as a kid was a paper route. The thing I got up so early in the morning for? A 1/10 scale RC car called The Frog, by Tamiya. A couple of friends and I saved up for months to buy these cars (Eric had The Hornet, and Steve had The Ultima) and [...]
For the most part, it’s been a pretty disappointing winter. You know this is so when people start talking about spring skiing when winter never really started. Anywhoo, it has been warm enough to think about going to the park. We met up with Heather, Josh, and Serisa at Willow Creek park for some park [...]
We haven’t got a lot of snow yet this season, but I don’t mind as it gives us all a chance to get our legs back under us riding the groomed runs. Here’s a few pics and videos of this early season.
Fall means canyoneering around here, so we headed down to the North Wash area of Southern Utah. It’s located between Hanksville and Lake Powell – essentially BFE. Heather, Josh, and Sirisa, as well as Babbie, Brad, Tai, and Aspen showed up too – But the first morning was just us. We took the kids through [...]
