    On a beautiful Saturday on the southern mountain roads, the STI's tires and engine were finally starting to get warmed up. As I began to push the car more and more up the mountain road, the tires finally started to hook up in the corners. Just as I started to roll into 4th gear coming out of a compression, cresting a hill, the radar detector made a slight noise... followed by a LOUD NOISE!

    • Beauty, spirituality and warmth: The Balinese.

      In the spirit of the new year, I wanted to share images of our recent journey to Bali. What made an especially strong impression on me was how the Balinese men, women and children live their lives by the mantras of family, spirituality and serenity. There is no place for anger or animosity in their lives. Bali's sacred space can be felt through through the friendly, artistic and spiritual nature of its people. I tried to capture a feel for the everyday lives of the Balinese on walks and bike rides through the local villages - watching the Balinese preparing their rice fields for harvest, giving the many offerings at family and community temples, the bustle of towns filled with "family" motorbikes, the beauty of its lush tropical jungles, even the pride they take in their beautiful hotels (their #1 industry). And the unique ceremonies - the elaborate (and extremely expensive) cremation ceremony - their way of showing respect for a soul destined to become a God with considerable powers over those left behind. (Unlike the death rites of other religions, the physical body is not the focus, as it is seen as nothing more than a temporary container of the soul and fit only for expedient disposal.) The body must be burned before the soul can leave it completely, being freed to be eventually reincarnated. We were fortunate to experience one of the most important Balinese Hindu's elaborate festivals - Galungan (the tradition every 210-days celebrating the triumph of Dharma --order, virtues over Adharma - evil, the unnatural). During Galungan the spirits of their ancestors descend from heaven to live with the family only to return ten days later on Kuningan. The families busily prepare for a month before making decorations, cooking rice cakes and collecting incense. We marveled in the creation of the elaborate Panjor's - prepared and hung outside every family compound. Created by the men from a tall bamboo pole woven with coconut leaves, it holds decorations of fruit, cakes and flowers - and is displayed outside of each compound beautifully framing the streets of each village. On the actual day of the festival, everyone dresses in their best clothes and jewelry and make offerings to the family shrine. The married women are also make offerings at the shrines of their parents. Thank you to Backroads - Paul, Wayan and our wonderful drivers for arranging this special biking trip!

          In a futile but worthy effort, a group of avid cyclists/psychotic athletes pedal through the Northeast Kingdom in search of Jen's tooth. Despite dozens of hours of laughter, rain, coffee, maple syrup, Ben+Jerry's ice cream, waterfall jacuzzis, white cheddar cheese tasting, barns, cows, leaves, sore ass jokes, hard cider, red wine, craft beer, great food, shitty pizza, birthday wishes, too many toasts by Jackie, too much laughter from Jen, and too little time with Paul and Kirby, the team never finds the tooth.

              The drive up Mount Washington was gorgeous however this video is not about the sights, it is about the drive and the road. The road was awesome however the speed limit was ridiculous 15-20. Holy crap my car really can't go that slow. Low gear really? I don't know how you can do that, I think this audio recording was from the 70's. I understand that it was for safety. I would love to run this road alone just for fun. I enjoyed the road despite the speed restrictions. Was great fun and yes the road itself was awesome, mostly paved but the dirt section was especially cool with it's washboards and washed out shoulders. This made for interesting space restrictions. Traffic well was picking up.
