Original photo of Diving in Jacob’s Well on Flicker

I recently contributed a couple of employee travel guides / trips reports to The travel guides were lacking in outdoor adventures. One is titled Austin, TX Outdoor Adventures and covers all of the rock climbing walls on the Greenbelt, kayaking & tubing Barton Creek, and a few more activities and places. A second article titled Climbing Mountains Around Seattle, WA covers Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Baker, Mount Shuksan, and Glacier Peak.

On Friday, November 28th through Monday, December 1st Mike Longfellow and I paddled the Devils River from Baker’s Crossing to Rough Canyon Marina (47 miles). This river is notoriously pristine and remote. The weather was perfect and there was plenty of good fishing and rapids along the way.

Madsen Cycles Bucket Bike

posted Apr 11, 2009 Madsen Cycles tub bike with my dog Paddy

The first Saturday of SXSW 2009 was the Bike Hugger Mobile Social Ride. It was pretty short, fun ride around Austin starting at couple block away from Mellow Johnny’s bike shop. One girl had bike made from bamboo and horn. No one seemed to mind the ride was short since it ended with free bar-b-que, beer and a raffle ticket for chance to win one of two bikes available (also an apple tv and a bunch crumpler bags). Mine was the last number called and it was for the Madsen Cycles bucket bike.

Project Nature

posted Mar 17, 2009 Baby Bird in a nest

While climbing at Gus Fruh on the greenbelt one afternoon I saw an empty bird nest. I drew this little guy to fill the nest and leave behind for someone else to find. It probably sitting on a shelf in someone’s apartment now. A couple weeks later I checked on it while out climbing again – someone made off with the nest and all.
