Steamboat Springs Ski Resort Ski Town USA

Ski Colorado: Steamboat Springs—Ski Town USA!

Why has it been so long? I asked myself this over and over again as I carved turns run-after-run down the fresh snow and groomed runs at Steamboat—Ski Town USA in Colorado. I guess the answer is simple: like so many of those things we love to do—our passions—all too often we find excuses not […]

People also asked, “Was your trip a life-changing experience?” Sure, circumstances surrounding one’s life always change and evolve. Yet deep inside, I […]

Last Ride of 2014 & The Ride of My Life

Since my book FORKS was published this summer I have been on a whirlwind promotional tour. Crisscrossing the county several times in a van wrapped in photos and graphics from the book and toting a pallet of books and my trusty F650GS Dakar motorcycle.
