Summer Workouts Had HIM a Blast! (In the “Grease,” “Summer Nights” tune, of course!)

August 17, 2013

Hiking and Trekking and Climbing…

August 17, 2011

I am from the East Coast. Raised in a town of 400 people. 1.5 hours to the nearest mall, 2 hours to the nearest (major) city, 1.5 hours to any (decent) ski mountain and 1.5 hours to the closest airport (Manchester wasn’t really happening back then). So, with that, the natural surroundings became my friend. […]
