Wait?? There’s a Dress code???

In the Last couple of years, our niece Abby has twice braved the weather and TSA to come up from Texas to visit.

Well it seemed only fair that Michelle and I return the favor. It had been in the plans once, but things fell through for some reason. This seemed like a perfect time, though, given a recent event in her life

We weren’t the only ones with a plan B trip!

As we all know the plan this week was supposed to be San Francisco and Napa. In fact, today we would’ve picked up a rental car and driven to wine country. Instead, we woke up here at the beach.

Yeah, I am NOT sad about that!  Continue reading “We weren’t the only ones with a plan B trip!”

It seemed like a much easier plan in my head!

So this week is Michelle’s birthday! We won’t say which one of course, but to me she still looks like she is a hot chick in her 30s!

Her birthday is Thursday, so I wanted to do something fun on one of the weekends around it.

Next weekend I am taking the Manchild back to college, so that meant this weekend was it. I came up with a plan… Continue reading “It seemed like a much easier plan in my head!”

Tidbits from Cannon Beach 2017

Since the birth of the Mountainstroh Blog 4 years (wow 4!) ago, I have posted during every vacation. I do it because it is fun, and it helps me remember the fun stuff that happens, and lets me share my fun with people stuck at work.

This post is a few things that happened during the week we were gone that may have gotten skipped. Continue reading “Tidbits from Cannon Beach 2017”

Making the Best of it

I love going places with Michelle. No matter where we go, we generally will park the car and walk all over the place. From Key West to Vancouver BC, Disneyland to Boston, there is NO way I could even guess how many miles we’ve gone.

I am the same way when I travel alone as well. In Spokane, unless I have driven and taken the bike with me, I will only use the car to go to the office, otherwise I walk wherever I want to go.

This week, I was stuck given the opportunity to travel with two coworkers to Nashville to observe a training program we might implement…. Continue reading “Making the Best of it”

A very WET Bike Anywhere Day!

In May, the third Friday of the month has historically been Bike to Work Day. OK, I know, y’all are thinking “But Tony, almost everyday is bike to work day for you!” This is very true. However, this is a day set up to encourage EVERYONE to do so!

This year it was called Bike Everywhere day.  The theory, of course, being that ANY miles are good miles! (Which is true) but the festivities did revolve around the morning commute… Continue reading “A very WET Bike Anywhere Day!”
