Roaming to Unite Radness
Reflections from Los Angeles to life on the road
I hold up the mirror of the year past in the hopes to make my future as bright as possible. I find myself dissecting every moment, as if I’ve laid my life under a microscope and as I pier through the magnifying lens I’m in the hopes to assessing my faults and errors that need sutured in repair. I thread the needle, tie the end and prepare myself to mend but I hesitate. Unable to move I start to see the beauty in my mistakes, my flaws are breathtaking. My desires to fix my error of my ways have helped me to realize that embracing the greats, good or bad, unveil the truth. Life is damn good.

Happy New Year and may your journey in life be as great and flawed as the best of us!!!

HELP CASE OF THE NOMADS
I've found that fundraising is an essential part of this journey, along with teaching workshops, giving lectures and mountain bike coaching. Thank you to all who have donated in the past, I greatly appreciate it!! This fundraiser isn't about supporting a nomadic lifestyle but to support others willing to dare to dream then make it happen. Help be part of this grand adventure and receive a gift from the road in return. This event ends at 3pm CST on January 13th. Please pass along to others and thank you.
*photos are just examples of possible gifts, depending on availability. Thank you.*
