Trips & Hobbies
perpetually bad left elbow has somewhat sidelined me from climbing
activities. Additionally, I have grown a bit bored with hiking
Colorado peaks. Since I need something to do at all times I've
decided to pick up new hobbies to keep me interested. I have
started a small new page covering some of these hobbies and will expand
it as time permits. May, 2009
I presently own a Specialized Stumpjumper Pro M2 1998
and a Haro Xeon S LT 2008
The first bike is a hardtail used for faster riding on and off
road and the second bike is a full suspension, all mountain bike used
for downhill riding. My wife rides a 199 Klein Pulse Race.
- A great trail resource, they want a fee for directions to trailheads but google gets around that quite easily.
- Reviews, Trails, and Forums.
Kayaks I presently own are: a tandem Zoik
and a solo Zoik
. These are 1000 count pvc/denier inflatable kayaks which are easily suited to multi day trips and class 4 whitewater.
Pumphouse to Lyons: (Colorado River) May, 2009 - James West, Brian Hynek, & Dave Pneuman.
South Boulder Creek: Arapahoe and Canyon to 35ht and Arapahoe, Boulder
South Boulder Creek: class 2+/3- stretch near Moffat Tunnel
Poudre River: Pumphouse Falls
I presently own a 2 square meter HQ Beamer III and a 4.5 square meter
Ozone Cult. If all goes well I plan on trying kite skiing this
upcoming winter out at Dillon Resevoir in Colorado.
