In Denver, there is a cool email service called “This Week in Denver.” It gives updates on the latest and greatest events Denver has to offer each week. The great thing about the service is that most of the events are something unusual that might be completely off the radar. They definitely do a good […]

As many of you know, I am a pretty serious runner and triathlete. One of the hardest things for me to adjust to on the expedition was leaving my bike behind and not being able to commit to any regular exercise routine. Sure, I was able to get the odd run in here and there, […]
I first met Wendy and Jim Pearson two years ago. The couple contacted Steve and I after reading an article in The Denver Post recapping the adventures of The World by Road a few months after we returned to US soil. Jim, and experienced adventurer in his own right, was already planning on taking time […]

TWBR is excited to be at the 12th Annual Explorers Festival in Lodz, Poland. Landed without incident last night in Warsaw and after being swooped up by our awesome handler Les in his Jaguar, went out on the town with a few other festival attendees (the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen as we quickly dubbed it) and had a traditional Polish meal that was so good it nearly put me to sleep at the table.
Come celebrate with us at Division West in Cherry Creek on Friday December 11th. Since we were just named one of the 2009 Adventurers of the Year by National Geographic Magazine, we thought it was only prudent to have a rockin party at this sweet shop.
When we first came up for the idea for this adventure, often we would hear from people, “That sounds like one heck of a vacation.”
“How lucky you two are to be able to do something like this,” many would say. Breaking the stigma that we were going on some easy road trip vacation to exotic places proved to be near impossible. We knew, and every day with more and more research, we were absolutely positive that an adventure of a lifetime preceded us. Still, rarely would we find someone willing to listen to our pleading that this was a true expedition that would go far beyond
The sun is shining, the grass is green, and the birds are singing. It must mean summer festival season in Colorado, and the first one that comes to mind is the Mile High Music Festival. It’s the second year of the festival, and it appears that everyone involved is doing everything needed to be done to make this year’s festival even better than last year’s great couple of days. The festival, just like last year, is being held at Dick’s Sporting Good Park (click here for directions), which is located in Commerce City, Colorado, and is home to the Colorado Rapids professional soccer team. The 18 practice fields surrounding the stadium turn into the festival area, which make it spacious enough for the 5 stages, vendors, and services. The doors to the festival open at 11 a.m., with the parking lots opening their gates at 9 a.m, and tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
The sense of community we all felt when we arrived at the Old Minto camp for an Athabasca Indian potlatch was incredible and inspiring. We were all very fortunate to interact with them and learned a great deal on our tour of the camp.
It began with a 30-mile boat trip up the Tanana River from Nenana, Alaska to the site that was originally settled in 1912. They have since moved their camp to a new location based on the flooding that continually caused them to flee, but still return to their old location for celebrations. It was here they were having a celebratory potlatch, as they come to the Old Minto a few times throughout the summer.
