Ticket to crashville – admit one.

2 weeks ago I was out on the bike, minding my own business, having a great day in the hills, as one does.

Sundays are meant for this and the dirt roads of the Perth hills are generally peaceful and riding is good for the soul.

Well, that’s how it was supposed to be, anyway… Read More

Off-road goodness

So, having just talked myself up on the internet about how badd-ass I’m going to be riding my bike into the inhospitable red centre of Australia, I thought I’d actually take it off road.   You mean I haven’t actually been off road on this thing?

500th Post! – Adventure Dreaming

Happy 500th postaversary,

I’ve been blogging for ages – close to 10 years now, but as is the way of things, blogs were started, burned, rekindled, abandoned.   But this one has been around since Feb 2008, which make it almost 6.  Not too shabby.  Theres been some ups and downs, but generally life is good.  Busy, crazy, but good.

So – this 500th postaversary  post is dedicated to an adventure (or more likely, multiple adventures) I want to have over the next 6 years.  Thats reasonable chunk of time, so it should be doable.

See, I’m a nerd.  As a geologist (by education and passion), I love amazing geological wonders – fossils, volcanoes, crazy sites of incredible geological importance.  So, I thought I’d pick a few incredible sites – world famous science changing sites that Australia has to offer, and go see them in person.
