10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

A good story.

A friend of mine, Cliff Nellis, is riding his bike across America for charity and fun. He left last weekend, and had an opportunity to send us (friends) an e-mail today.

Towing 50 pounds of gear, the heat, no clouds, no shade, no breeze, running out of food and water with 15 miles left, and ending with one climb after another heading west into Walsenburg proved to be a test to say the least. FOUR miles outside of Walsenburg, I finally passed a house, and even though there was only four miles left, I knew I had to stop for some water. The lady was really nice...gave me some cold water and a popcycle. Still those last four miles were tough. I completely BONKED.

It was very enjoyable for me to read, so I asked him if I could share it. He said sure - [ full story ].

From Denver, I will bike to San Diego, and from San Diego, I will bike across the southern coast to Miami, FL. The total distance covered will be roughly 4,600 miles. On the way, I will bike through some of the areas that have been hit by wildfires this summer. I will pitch a tent at campgrounds most nights. I will carry my gear in a one-wheel B.O.B., which is essentially a trailer for a bicycle. I am excited to bike through many scenic parts of the country, including Moab, Lake Powell, the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, the Mojave Desert, and the Rocky Mountains. I also look forward to biking through major cities, such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Houston, Mobile, Biloxi, Orlando, and Miami. Mostly, I look forward to meeting the people. On a previous cross-country bicycle trip, I found that the people make the trip. If all goes well, I am registered to compete in the Great Floridian Ironman on October 19, 2002, in Clermont, FL.

Bookmark a group of tabs.

A sweet tip from Russell:

I AM using Mozilla's awesome "Tab-Group Bookmarks" feature which basically opens up a folder of favorites all in one window with a tab per link. I've got everyone in the JavaBlogs section of my blogroll in one and I can just open it up and flip through the tabs one by one. The sites I want to respond to or read more in depth stay open, but the others get closed (quick middle-button click). It's working out really well to keep up with the blog list on the left.

To use it, it's very easy:

  1. Open all your favorites sites using tabs.
  2. Go to "Bookmarks" and "Bookmark this group of tabs..."

Doesn't get much easier than that, and he's right - it's WAY cool!
