Mike: Thanks for joining me today, Mike. I know you’re a busy guy.
Mike: Huh? I’m sorry, I couldn’t hear a thing over the sound of your awesome. Read more
Roam About Momma didn’t raise no dummy, but damn Japanese toilets are confusing/intimidating as hell…
After a 10 1/2 flight from LA, decompression hits my guts like so much airline food as I make my way to the bathroom via customs.
It’s an honor to have Susie on Roam About.
Not really sure how I found her…maybe through Brigitte; maybe she found me, either way, Susie’s amazing. She’s created quite the following at the great, funny, entertaining adventure blog Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride.
Check it out; she has more badass adventures over the course of a weekend than I do in months. And she wears fake mustaches. AND she’s a skier. She also does this awesome piece called ‘Use and Abuse Me’ where you can post a link to something you’ve written, then get exposure, and introductions to other great bloggers. If you’re new to the blogging world, this is a great opportunity to introduce yourself to a new community.
When Mike asked me to guest post for him while he roams about Asia, I sensed his anxiety. Then I came up with an idea. When roamers and wild riders collide, Mike could hang out like a fly on the wall!
Some of you may not be acquainted with my Wild Ride, but it is always an adventure.
I live in Boulder, Colorado. During the winter, my husband Danny and I drive up to the mountains almost every weekend. March is often the snowiest month of the year.
Recently, we skied at Breckenridge where it dumped the entire day. Colorado resorts are known for their champagne powder since the atmosphere is thin at nearly two miles high. Warm temperatures transformed the usually light “pow” to heavy ice cream snow.
At one point it became hard to see. Skiing off a head wall can be unnerving when visibility is only ten feet. It’s like riding a roller coaster in the dark…only it’s light.
Danny’s iPhone takes such high contrast photos, you can’t see how hard the snow is coming down.
One of our traditions is to start our day with a hot tub, but after a phenomenal day of skiing, this is the only way to relax!
Sayonara Mike! Don’t worry. Everything is under….. **crash**

There’s one form of body modification that crosses the purlieu of my comprehension — a masochistic brand of transmogrifying fashion.
Are you talking about tattoos, Mike? Read more

There are over 2,000 of you.
If I were in a band, and 2,000 of you came to the show, that would be a kick-ass concert, with a mosh pit and beach balls and marijua…beer, just beer, you stoners.
Really, if I had to address 2,000 people from the stage, I’d probably hyperventilate, pass out, and break my face on a ledge. But I can’t think of it that way… Read more
Watching the commercials in between the
Vegas-rigged SuperBowl on Sunday, I was left unimpressed. The marketing/ad staff of major corporations had a year to conceptualize, write, shoot, focus-group, and edit a piece that costs a billion dollars a second, and overall, in my opinion, they failed to deliver. Pepsi, Budweiser, M&Ms, Go Daddy…nope. The one commercial I actually liked (The Doritos Goat commercial) was written/shot and submitted as part of an amateur contest. Huh. Read more
