Over the Edge

Over the Edge

I have almost no fears except what I would consider a very natural and normal fear of heights. 

But that wasn't enough to stop me from facing that fear, honoring my dad, and raising some money for Community Hospice Foundation. So, thanks to my awesome friends and family that generously donated to the cause, I took the plunge - at a controlled pace - down the Medico-Dental building for the Over the Edge fundraiser. I first heard about this fundraiser right after they began planning for it, while Dawn and I were enjoying a lovely bottle of wine at Mile Wine Co. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I had to go for it!

The Gold Bar Riddle

The Gold Bar Riddle

I am going to tell you a riddle. Not just any riddle, the greatest riddle. You see, I believe this riddle, and the lesson in its answer, can be life changing. At least it has been for me.

Before I tell you the riddle, let me warn you. Its answer doesn't come easily to most. While the answer is not easy, it is simple. I first heard this riddle more than 15 years ago and I have been asking people for as many years. Although I have not tracked the exact results, I would estimate that less than 10% of the people I have shared the riddle with were able to solve it.

Bike Stockton, Every Street, Part 2

Bike Stockton, Every Street, Part 2

I finished. I rode my bike on every street in Stockton. On Saturday, December 27, three months after I started my quest to ride every street in Stockton, and just a few days before my self-imposed deadline, I crossed the ceremonial finish line. In those three months I rode 1,566 miles throughout Stockton, taking 119 hours. That was, by far, the most I had ever spent on my bike in any three month period in my life.

When last we met, I was two months and 1,053 miles into my quest to ride every street in Stockton. I know it's been a while since that update... so drumroll please... I finished!
