During the winter, my buddy Morgan got it in his head that we should do a mountain bike bikepacking trip over spring break. With unpredictable spring weather in the Northeast, he looked south. And east. And that’s how we ended up in California attempting the Stagecoach 400 route.
We’re out here riding the Stagecoach 400 route. It’s day 3 and I can safely say this is the most physically and mentally challenging riding I have ever done. We started as 4 riders and are already down to two.
More updates to come once we reenter civilization.
Last year for my last birthday, Charly and I spent a week in California exploring Yosemite National Park. I sadly never made a post about it!
This year for Charly’s birthday we went out west again, but this time to Nevada, Arizona, and Utah to visit National Parks out there. The photos in this post were taken by both of us.
Israel was a blast. I was back visiting friends I’d made in just 5 months but hadn’t seen in a year.
We drank, danced, played, worked, talked, laughed, lamented, explored, and ate a lot of hummus together.
Time for a quick update on what I’ve been doing this summer and fall.
No, not my birthday, but a birthday nonetheless.
As is becoming a tradition, a big group of us – mostly friends from the rock climbing gym – went up to New Hampshire for Simone’s birthday.
Last weekend I went to New Hampshire with Julian and Erin to get our boat-drivers certifications. Now I can now drive a boat in 49 states! (I should probably find out what that last one is….)
We also learned how to wakeboard, which is really exhausting.
I killed one terrarium along the way but consider it a fair price to pay for aquatic freedom.
I decided to take advantage of the long weekend and catch a bus up to Montreal. I can’t bike due to a knee injury and my friends Noa and Lea are living in Montreal, so it was the perfect excuse.
This weekend the MIT Outing Club held a Circus at their cabin in Rumney.
