Powder day on Mt. Lemmon

After living here for 10 years, I finally got to snowboard on Mt. Lemmon (the southern-most ski area in the Lower 48). Six inches of fresh and catching first chair made for a great day.

That's Dave.

On Travel

Photo by Steve McCurry

"There's nothing more important that you can do with your life than to experience different cultures and see how different people live and see all the amazing variety of life in this world - human life, animal life, the natural world, the sea, the oceans, the mountains. To try and experience that is about the most interesting way you can spend your life." -Steve McCurry

El Tour de Tucson 2011

Despite a severe lack of training, I rode El Tour de Tucson for the fifth time yesterday. I rode with El Grupo and we posted our second best time ever (5:45). Congratulations to all the kids and coaches. See you next year!

Thanks to Kathleen Dreier for the photos. More here.

Thanks for your votes!

Your votes helped me to win the TucsonVelo contest for the second year in a row! I get $110 in gift certificates to various bike shops in town. This is the winning pic of Reyna being towed across Utah. Thanks again.
This is the pic that won last year:

A year already?

Today is the one year anniversary of bringing Reyna into our lives. Couldn't imagine life without her. Love you Rey!

Reverend Horton Heat 7-17-11 Rialto Theater Tucson AZ

Nirvana Setlist 10-23-1991 After the GoldRush Tempe, AZ

Was looking through some old junk recently and found this setlist that I got after the show. Probably written by Grohl and not Cobain but cool nonetheless. Almost exactly 20 years ago - crazy!

Reyna Goes Canyoneering

We took Reyna to the central part of West Clear Creek for some canyoneering. It wasn't a technical part of the canyon but did have 12 mandatory swims. She did great but all the boulder-hopping and swimming worked her pretty good (us too). It took us about 11 hours to travel five miles!

Carrying a tired dog!

…and be merry!

It finally happened. My food obsessions and adventures refused to be contained any longer. The pictures of every beautiful animal, vegetable and mineral that could possibly appear on a plate have spilled out of their digital files and on to my shared food blog. Sara and I have spent the last several years preparing food for almost everyone in our humble little town. We started by sharing food with anyone who was hungry during our involvement with Food Not Bombs. From there we embraced the Sonoran Desert and everything edible within it through our work with Desert Harvesters. This past year we worked on a community cookbook highlighting the ubiquitous mesquite. We fed even more neighbors through the extensive recipe testing and cookbook unveiling at the annual mesquite milling and pancake fiesta. Our work with Tucson Community Supported Agriculture includes cooking demonstrations and special events involving foods highlighting the season. We have catered the Gathering of the Greens party for the last three years at the Historic Y. The bottom line is, if you live in Tucson we have probably touched something you ate. Our food blog …and be merry! will describe our food exploits and endeavors. It was born as a documentation tool for our first Supper Club Dinner but it is clear that it will become so much more.

I hope you will check in and see what's cookin' as we go to the straight to the source for our dining delights. Join us around the table and see why few things bring us more joy than sharing food with friends.
