I like to think of March 2021 as my “month on mountains,” as we biked, skied, or hiked every weekend (and some weekdays, even)! More of that, please.
I’ve spent as many weekends as possible in 2021 on mountains. Every weekend since getting mountain bikes, my bride and I have gone west, south, or north of Atlanta to ride. One weekend earlier this month, however, we brought the children, and Jody brought his oldest daughter, and the 7 […]
Remember 2019? Me neither. Let’s fix that (for August-December, anyway).
Here’s February 2021 in 28 seconds, like I did last month and last year!

A few days ago, I got to do something I only do twice a year but enjoy immensely: I saw my dentist…or, more accurately, my dental hygienist. We laughed about how when I last saw him in late May, we took a selfie together while covered in PPE. I told […]
Just over 2 hours from Atlanta is a state park in Alabama a few minutes from where my parents live, and since we had a Screaming Eagle Aerial Adventures rain check (more accurately, a “torrential, lightning-filled, and utterly destructive storm” check) left from Fathers Day weekend, we used it in […]
