About Me

I started riding at age 50 through the prompting of my sons. Now I am totally addicted and only wish I would have started earlier in life. Having lived in Mongolia for over 20 years, my favorite riding experience is exploring the many mountains of the country for new trails.

So great to hear from you Greg and hear that you finally fulfilled Outside 365 ... and more! Very cool. Life changing I'm sure. All the best to you and yours.
Washed my gloves tonight after answering this survey. =)

There is nothing more convenient than a SteriPen in areas with clear sources of water, which is where I almost exclusively ride and hike. The combination of the MSR Trailshot and a SteriPen is hard to beat as one's long-term solutions for all conditions. Use both in the worst of situations or carry only the…

Absolutely love hearing the stories of all you old timers. I'm a relatively newcomer to the mtb scene and have been riding for about 7 years. Five years in real earnest. I did have the exotic privilege to start mountain riding in the country of Mongolia. Nearly every ride was an adventure ride, riding trails…
