No More Hobbies!

I have the ski bug pretty bad. One thing that is great about gravity sports is that even a beginner like me can have a ridiculous amount of fun.  But this is the last sport hobby I am going to adopt for awhile.  I promise.  I don't have enough time off to do it all!
This video made me smile so I'm sharing it.  Looking forward to Snowmass/Aspen this winter!

There is something magical about carving downhill, whether it be on a snow slope or on whitewater or on a mountain bike or... well those are all I have experience with.   Exhilaration!

Some of my friends know of my recent obsession with vocal-less versions of Motown classics.  This one just blew me away.

Elizabeth Cotten

Elizabeth Cotten is of my all-time favorite guitarists. Left handed, playing with the strings 'upside down'. This is one of her classic original songs.   It's been covered by a bunch of folks including Chet Atkins.


A historical marker has been placed in Carrboro, NC honoring Elizabeth Cotten, read about it here:

The Big Ditch

One of my lifetime dream trips will be to kayak the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.    Here's a great video of some paddlers who paddled The Big Ditch in 2013:
