As a way to celebrate my retirement we devised and executed a mini-triathlon! It was a hoot, and a fun way to make the best of a day when I didn't have to go to work.

This is one of my favorite bike rides, I try to do it every year. It is a Gourmet bike ride and the food is really good. The beer isn't too bad either!

In the summer of 2019 I did a half marathon trail run at an event called the Timberline Marathon, at Timothy Lake, just a little South East of Mt Hood. For this event, I was inadequately prepared, and in the video I do a lot more philosophising than is typical for me.

One of the unique events of the Rose Festival in Portland is the presence of US Navy, Canadian Navy, and US Coast Guard ships. This is a trip spent viewing the ships coming up the river, with the benefit of sophisticated electronics on my boat.

This was a fun bike ride on the Willapa Hills State Park trail. The trail is a rails-to-trails conversion that runs about 50 miles from Chehalis to Raymond, WA. Not very good video quality, but the story is good.
