New Job, New Blog

It's time...

Please visit our new website - Live, Learn, Ride. We're just getting started and soon enough it should be chock full of info and blogs.

Don't worry - we'll definitely keep this site up. In the future we hope to take the info this blog and get it organized into a resource for our 'round the world adventure.

Hey! Guess What?

Happy Thursday,

As some of you may or may not know - we haven't been on the Colorado Trail for the past couple of weeks. Nothing bad happened, we just had a major change of plans. To make a long story short - we got a job, and a pretty cool one at that. We are the new Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew. Think of it as the new iteration of the Bicycle Geography adventure. This time we have a car, prearranged locations, and, we get paid...

Stay tuned for more info about our upcoming adventures and a new blog site. Oh, don't forget to brush off that US atlas. We're definitely getting back the geography stuff.

Hope all is well with you,

LK and CK

New Website for Leslie

Happy Monday,

I have a new and improved website for my business pursuits. I've combined Bluebird Mapping and GIS with Wide Eyed World Photography.

If you have a moment, take some time and look around.

Day 1 - Top of the World Campground
Day 2 - Kenosha Pass
Day 3 - Frisco
Day 4 - Rest Day
Day 5 - Camp Hale
Day 6 - Leadville
Day 7 - Buena Vista
Day 8 - Rest Day
Day 9 - 12 Lake City
Day 13 - Rest Day
Day 14-17 Durango

The wildflowers should be awesome...

The Cruiser Reborn

Chris finished up my Fourth of July cruiser last week. I took it for a spin immediately. Other than an old tire with a flat spot (thump, thump, thump...) it's fun, fuN, FUN!

Happy Monday,

What Happened to the Kehmeiers?

We're still kickin' it and keepin' it real. Real, acutally, is a good word. We are transitioning our way back to the 'real' world.

As some of you know, Chris has been working hard to become a teacher. With a lot of hard work and dedication, he was offered (and accepted) a job near Glenwood Springs, Colorado. He'll be teaching science to high schoolers.

I've been busy with my freelance work. Lots of maps, words, and pictures. Last weekend I competed in the Teva Games as a photographer for the first time. It was awesome to be behind the lens! Here is my portfolio entry:

Finally, we are still set to ride the Colorado Trail. I finally got my bike back, with a new frame, and look forward to another bicycle adventure.

Hope you are all well and we hope to be picking up the blogging as we ride from Denver to Durango.

What Time Is It?

It's game time.

Nuggets and Lakers start tonight. I'm so excited that I can hardly stand it!

Lakers are going down...

Chris 'the birdman' Andersen rules.

Nuggets in seven.
