Unplugged in Wyoming

I love Idaho, but my soul will always belong to the mountains of Wyoming. Prologue This year for our summer vacation, Ann and I had 10 days and no plan. Well, we did have an agenda for the first two days – a wedding and a reunion – but then it was wide open and …

Huntington Beach – Surf City USA

In January of this year, I had the “tough” assignment to spend some time in Australia with my company doing some testing for an upcoming software release. At the end of the week, we had an extra day to enjoy Australia. I had always told myself that if I ever had the chance to get …

Ride Like A Girl…

While climbing to the top of the infamous Porcupine Rim, arguably the best downhill trail in Moab, I was struggling. My legs were weak, my cardio non-existent and my attitude sour. This was the spring of 2002 and I hated climbing. As I slogged up the hill, I could hear the steady cadence of a …

Hi-Adventure for Mobile Devices

If you prefer to surf the interweb with your smart phone, and you have tried to browse the hi-adventure site with one of these devices, it has probably not been an optimal experience. OK, let’s be honest here. It has totally SUCKED! But as of today, the suckiness (OK, I know that isn’t really a …

iBikes Under The Tree?

I don’t own an iThingy.  No iPod, no iTouch, no iPhone, no iPad and certainly no iPad Mini.  I have nothing against iThingys—my wife and two daughters have iPhones, iTouchs and iPods.  Truth be told, I have downloaded some un-cool, old guy music from iTunes once or twice with their help.  For me, the whole”i” …

Oregon Coast Escape

Not all of my adventures involve snow – and that is a good thing! OK, here’s is the deal. My wife has been saying that each of these ski mountaineering trips that I have been going on requires some “beach time”. Now it is important to note that fortunately, in her case, “beach” doesn’t necessarily …

Heaven and Hell in the Tetons

This little adventure was my October session of Turns All Year, (the unapproved pursuit of skiing every month of the year). I refer to this as “unapproved” in reference to Ann’s attitude towards this latest installment of my ongoing insanity. I was getting nervous about this trip actually coming to fruition, due to the fact …

Scars Rule!

As Halloween approaches I am reminded of…scars. While nobody can rock a scar like Frankenstein, scars have found a place in my psyche. I stare down at my left arm above my hand. A newly minted scar in licorice red has formed. I acquired this in a recent disagreement with a step-up jump at The …

Rolling with the Flow

Dawn is breaking here on Lick Creek Road, just north of Slide Rock. We are parked at a snow bank across the road that is too much for the Jetta to handle, and there is a slight problem. The snow on the road, left over from avalanche debris this winter, is really about as much …

Powder on Mores Mountain

With the dangerous avalanche conditions in many popular back country areas, we dialed it back this weekend and chose some mellow terrain just outside the Bogus Basin ski area boundary.  Mores Mountain has some great skiing with some low risk options.  This is only about a 30-45 minute skin from the OB gate. We had …

Bull Trout Point TR

It has not been a good start to the winter here in the Boise area if your definition of “good” is lots of snow in the mountains.  I have been up to Bogus Basin a few times, and the groomed runs are skiing OK.  But don’t even think about getting off-trail and the stuff I …

Thanksgiving Weekend 2013

I’m thankful for many things in life, and high up on the list is my health and the wonderful outdoors.  As I sit here writing this, I’m hearing reports of mild violence and frenzied shoppers during the beginning of the holiday shopping season.  You will be hard pressed to find me doing any “Black Friday” …

Half Marathon in the Boise Foothills

Here is my little “Forrest Gump” running project. This past Saturday, (December 8th, 2012), I decided to go for a little run in the Eagle Bike Park. I’ve been doing some 5-7 mile loops there, and that was what was on my mind. When I got to the southeast corner of the loop that I …
