The Other Side of the Owl

We’ve been to the local Owl Mountains a few times in the past, but we’ve mostly hit the same trails since we simply didn’t know any better. So when the weather forecast called for a super sunny and warm day this past Saturday, we knew that we had to spend that day outdoors, but we…

The Tough Guy Challenge

The Tough Guy Challenge began a few years back on the eve of the International Women’s Day. As the story goes, my buddy Robert and his then-roommate were asked to leave the flat so that the girls could celebrate their day by having a girls night in.

Chocolate Walkin’

We took both of our chocolate labs for a hike on Sunday. Ours is of course the larger of the two, Fado, the 6-month old pup Rico was a loaner from Ania’s mom 🙂 I was actually pretty surprised to see the little one handle the hike like a champ. I was half expecting Rico…
