Flying down a mountain on 2 wheels

One thing I’ve learned about having fun is it’s best to risk one’s life to achieve it, and it must be preceded by excruciating toil. So, Jody, Jim Bob, my wife, and I all bought full suspension aluminum mountain bikes recently, and I met my 2 friends from childhood just […]

St. Thomas and Virgin Islands National Park

Right before December concluded, we flew down to St. Thomas, exited the American Airlines 737, walked a few paces across the tarmac, showed some locals our negative Covid test results on my wife’s phone, and entered the Cyril E.

a 2020 recap comprised of 366 1-second video clips
