NaNoExoMo Going Great for First Two Weeks

Nov 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Adventure, All About Me, Heath & Fitness

So I made NaNoExoMo because November is the month where groups organize to do something everyday for a whole month. The most absurd to me is writing a whole novel in a month (NaNoWriMo is an annual (November) novel writing project). Well, I most certainly wasn’t going to do that. For the past two years […]



Saturday Ride to Bartlett Lake

The best way to spend a Saturday morning in Arizona in October. The weather was perfect. Rode up Cave Creek and picked up Tami. Then we rode to Harold’s in Cave Creek for breakfast. Next stop was the lake. Cam is leading the way. Bartlett Lake Ride (Arizona) from soul4real on Vimeo. Motorcycle ride out […]



Asila & GCC Bear Ready for Spring Break

Mar 14th, 2010 | By | Category: Adventure, Travel

The story of Asila is an interesting one. She’s the rainbow bear in the picture. I bought her at a gay pride celebration in Las Vegas many years ago. I want to say about 11 years, but I can’t really be certain. I was dating someone who lived there at the time, and I traveled […]

Me & Coach Craig Originally uploaded by dr.coop This past weekend I drove to Bakersfield, CA for my college Track & Field and Cross Country reunion. I graduated from California State University Bakersfield 20 years ago, and I had never been back. That’s not because I didn’t enjoy my time there. In fact, I’d forgotten […]

Motorcycle Girls Originally uploaded by cogdogblog C and I took another quick road trip this weekend to escape the heat of the valley. We usually try to get out of town early in the morning before it gets too hot. But this trip was different because we were going up to Strawberry to see my […]



Hawley Lake Camping for the 4th

Jul 9th, 2008 | By | Category: Adventure

We go up to Hawley Lake every summer for some rest and relaxation on the lake. It’s just so beautiful up there. We went for the first time the first week in June, but decided we would come back up for the 4th of July since we love it so much. We’d never been in […]



Proud to Call Them Friends

May 18th, 2008 | By | Category: Adventure, Travel

IMG_2211 Originally uploaded by nooccar I’ve been working in the Maricopa Community College District now for 10 years, and I’ve met plenty of people along the way. Some of these people it’s a real honor to work with and others are a joy to call colleagues, but very few are people I’d want to hang […]



Finally Got Some Vid Off My Camera

Feb 26th, 2008 | By | Category: Adventure, Heath & Fitness, Video

What a nightmare experience that was. Yes, it wasn’t easy, even for me. I shot some video yesterday of my hike on Piestewa Peak, but when I got home and tried to download it, I couldn’t. Turns out I needed the AC cable, which I did not have. So today I got it, and started […]
