Yet another Manlaw post…

Looking back, I know I am the way I am, in many ways, by the way I was raised.  I always treat ladies as ladies.  Even the ones that are good friends and I flip crap to everyday, I will hold the door and tell them when they look nice.  I also make sure, even if they can do it, to offer to carry heavy stuff at work, or anywhere else.  It’s what guys do, its Manlaw.  In my travels this weekend, I saw a few breaches in Manlaw, and one classic example of adhering to it.

I can see we sometimes get a bad name!

Today was a different day for me.  Instead of riding the bike, I told Michelle (who had to put up with my long bikes rides every weekend leading up to the STP) that today I’d walk with her instead.

She is in training to walk the Portland half marathon in October with her best friend Kim.  So on tap today was a 6 – 8 mile walk along the Burke Gilman trail.  One of our friends joined us as well, and we headed out at 8 AM. Continue reading “I can see we sometimes get a bad name!”

Mountainstroh Rules of the “Road”

You never know where the inspiration for a post will come from. This one came from my friend Sarah at the Honoring My Compass blog. She is currently at the end of a bike tour from the Mexican border to Canada, traveling along the Sierras and Cascades. They are visiting all the national parks along the way.

At one campsite they had to deal with a couple of inconsiderate people who kept them up all night talking loudly. I told her what my rule for people like this is… Continue reading “Mountainstroh Rules of the “Road””

We’ll Never Know

There are, as we know some mysteries of life that we may NEVER know the answers too. Is there really a Sasquatch or a Loch Ness monster?  Why do UFOs seem to only pick up beer drinking rednecks?  How can people really be New York Yankee fans? And why is Justin Bieber popular?

There are these and many many more out there. Sometimes we just have to be OK with not knowing, otherwise we will drive ourselves nuts.  The Manchild and I are dealing that exact issue tonight… Continue reading “We’ll Never Know”

Yes Tony you have to Share…

This has been a strange week weather wise!  On Saturday, Sunday and Monday I traveled a total of 56 miles over three rides.  There are some who would say I swan 56 miles these days.  Pure and simple, it poured the whole time!  I showed you pictures of mudslides and myself soaking wet.  It was NOT the most fun time to ride.


Today, though, things changed.  Out of the blue we saw 60 degrees, sunshine, dryness and no wind!  Let the heralds go far and wide and declare this a day to go outside.

In all honesty, I think thats JUST what happened today… Continue reading “Yes Tony you have to Share…”
