COVID-19 Notice

par·a·digm shift - noun, a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions.


There are now over two thousand subscribers to my FREE weekly Constant Contact newsletter. My sincerest thanks for continuing with me on this journey. We have a long way to go.


Most of my events by far have been centered on themed pub crawls. I hope that we may resume those, but we need open bars.


And my heart goes out to all businesses and individuals who are on a financial cliff, especially those in the service and entertainment industries that in other times give us so much joy and are now without income and benefits.


Most of the the regional parks and trails remain open for now. We are planning group bicycle rides and other events that will comply with social distancing, etc. Rather than update the web site for each event I will have all details in the weekly newsletter until further notice. So, if you don’t already subscribe PLEASE do so now:

What People Are Saying

I made up a new word in honor of my awesome friend and sometimes partner in assorted adventures and general shenanigans, Funtrepreneur – a person who organizes and manages any lively and convivial enterprise, especially a gathering of likeminded revelers, usually with considerable initiative and risk.
