Welp, lots of events got cancelled in 2020, and for whatever reason you can bet they all fell under the great viral umbrella of covid. Dirty Kanza is one such event. It has since recovered, but not unchanged. Now, renamed Unbound Gravel, I personally wonder if this is the same event I fell in love […]
Taking five at the river.
It’s hard to research gravel cycling and not soon become aware of a phenomenal gravel ride known as Dirty Kanza. Ok, it’s probably impossible.

Ok, we’re back, and the glueing went well. We’re all stuck together. Now, time to iron out the wrinkles. In this case, sand them out.

They make me laugh (who doesn’t need that?), ponder […]
Some time ago we decided to become goat ranchers. What does that mean? Well,

I always over-do the onion crop
Its been a weird year. Our three-day winter here in central Texas has mother nature standing on her ear. My fruit trees are still putting on leaves.
