Mike’s Next Adventure

Roaming About with Susie Lindau Like a Fly on the Wall!

Mike Says:

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.

Super fly Mike 1

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.

Super Fly Mike 5

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**

    Hey Susie, thanks for introducing another great blogger! I’m going to sit back and travel the here for a bit 😉
    My last adventure was to Alaska for the Iditarod Sled Dog Race a couple of weeks ago!

  2. susielindau says:

    I am so glad Denise! Have fun on traveling around Mike’s place.
    How cool is the Iditarod Race! You have the most amazing adventures in Alaska.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. martibabcock says:

    Love this post! Mike and I LOVE Boulder, CO. We will have to visit soon!

  4. susielindau says:

    Thanks so much! It was fun to put together.
    We would love that Marti. There is always something going on. With 300 sunny days and the mountains, it is easy to find adventure!
    Have a fun trip!

  5. Brigitte says:

    Susie, I get to Roam on the 30th (my time to post). This was fun and you are hilarious. Thanks for the snow ride and it was nice to have Mike along. 🙂

  6. susielindau says:

    I can’t wait to see everyone’s guest posts. Do you have one in the works?
    I think Mike’s little tiny fly feet finally thawed out in the hot tub. 🙂
    Thanks Brigitte!

  7. El Guapo says:

    Where did Fly Mike find ski gear in his size???

    1. susielindau says:

      We had to special order the gear from the CIA micro drone division. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by Guapo!

  8. Catherine Johnson says:

    That hot tub sounds divine right about now. Fun post, Susie and Mike

    1. susielindau says:

      Thanks Catherine!
      I think I frightened off Mike’s regular followers…Hahaha!

  9. tedstrutz says:

    Wowza, Mike! Your blog survived the Wild Child. Of course it was ‘used and abused’ (where have I heard that before?) to show off her new Ski Outfit… and shamelessly promote her legs. Some great winter pics and information about snow. Danny came through again, documenting our favorite Wild Thing’s adventures… What no Snow Dance?

    Looking forward to your return and finding out where you went in Asia…

    1. susielindau says:

      Hey Ted! Great to “see” you!
      Yep you know me. I am shameless… 🙂 I couldn’t work Mike into the video so I cut it. Next time!
      He will have all kinds of stories to tell. In the meantime, Mike has some fun bloggers taking over his post. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

    2. mabukach says:

      Thanks Ted. There were a lot of empty beer bottles in the back, and a hole in the ceiling, but the blog survived.
      Just returned from Japan – posts regarding coming very soon. Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Eagle Tech says:

    I think I gotta sympathize with the fly a bit. I didn’t notice a down jacket or anything. Must’ve been cold. Skiing is a whole lot of fun, but Happy Hour afterwards is a crucial part of the whole adventure. Hot tub and a brew, now that’s good livin’.

    1. susielindau says:

      Hey Eagle Tech!
      That is so true. Mike warmed all of his six feet in the hot tub afterward. He wasn’t complaining once Danny brought him a beer!
      Thanks for coming by!

  11. E. says:

    Thanks for the guest post, Susie! I’m one of Mike’s regular followers, but you can bet I’ll be stopping by your blog after reading this post!

    My last adventure was in Baltimore…my fiancee and I had just finished visiting the National Aquarium and were in search of a bar to watch the UNC basketball. We ended up turning onto an….interesting….street, and were solicited by several strip club bouncers and “ladies of the night” (except it was 4pm). “Curious couples always welcome! Special deals inside for the man and his lady!” Uh, thanks but no.

    1. susielindau says:

      Hahaha! That is funny! Danny just told me that I am not allowed to go to Europe by myself because I would follow the creepiest people down the deepest darkest alley in France. He wouldn’t be there to bail me out!
      Sound like “quite” the adventure and it was only 4???
      I do love aquariums and have always been a fish girl.
      Thanks for checking out my blog and leaving a comment on Mike’s. 🙂 I will check out your blog too!

  12. cuchita49 says:

    Very clever!!! I am in awe of you! 🙂

    1. susielindau says:

      Hey thanks! It is amazing what a person can do with Microsoft Paint. Some day, I’ll break down and get official! (Photoshop)

  13. Colorado is on my bucket list. One of the reasons I moved to Oregon was because of the great outdoors, but Colorado gives us some stiff competition.

    1. susielindau says:

      You should definitely come to visit and let me know if you do! The skiing is fantastic and from what I hear, Boulder and many of the mountain towns are much like the laid back feeling of your state!
      Thanks for stopping by!

  14. colonialist says:

    Can’t hear yo-o-o-ou! Stand closer to the Mike, please …

    1. susielindau says:

      Hahaha! I bet he has never heard that one before!
      Thanks for “roaming” over! Lots of good writing and photos to check out….

  15. I’m just grateful Mike didn’t find himself stuck to that frozen pole….you kill me Susie!

    1. susielindau says:

      Hahaha! I never thought of that! Yoooouch!

  16. mrsdeboots says:

    My travel life is SO unexplaniably boring. So..yeah. But I do like the photos and the way you put mike in..very clever and funny!!

    1. susielindau says:

      You’ll have to put Colorado on your list! Nothing boring out here.. 🙂
      Thanks! It was a fun little project!

  17. Just as well Mike didn’t buzz in to the hot tub! That’s where I’d be, though… 😉

    1. susielindau says:

      I thought of that! He could have been doing the backstroke. Hahaha! Thanks for coming by Alarna!

  18. lynnkelleyauthor says:

    Hahaha! What a fun post. I love how you changed Mike to a fly on the wall. Love your photos. Hot tub and skiing, awesome!

    1. susielindau says:

      Thanks Lynn! It was a fun art project. Thanks for “roaming” over!

  19. filbio says:

    LOL! Another nutty post! Skiing, hot tub, man that is a good time. I thought flies did not like hot water though.

    1. susielindau says:

      Thanks Phil!
      Yep, but Mike is half human! 🙂

  20. claywatkins says:

    I have roamed from the snowy frozen Midwest to the tranquility of the Keys and I am looking out over the Atlantic Ocean and kicking back…’s Spring Break and I am having a restful and relaxing break! Roaming brings back memories of the B-52s and the late 80s!

    1. susielindau says:

      Ha! Nice Clay. Enjoy your break!
      I would love to be relaxing by an ocean…I remember the 80’s and the B52’s. Great memories! Time flies just like Mike. There he goes! …buzzzzzzzzz….

  21. mabukach says:

    Susie – this is hilarious! Thanks for letting me be your fly for a day, it was a lot of fun. And thanks for leaving out the part where people freaked out after discovering a fly with a goofy-looking human head.

    1. susielindau says:

      Thanks so much Mike! Sorry I missed your sweet intro, but I updated it since…
      How are your arms??? Mine hurt from flapping for a week!
      Are you going through sushi withdrawal?

      1. mabukach says:

        Arms hurt from flying, and MAJOR sushi withdrawal. Must…eat…sashimi

  22. Thank goodness I can live vicariously through your post! That snow!! What a ride!

    1. susielindau says:

      Thanks for coming by Susan! Yep there is still snow in the mountains and we plan to ski again today. Another big storm is coming in!

  23. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a
    quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know
    how you cnter yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have hadd trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    ideas oout there. I truly do enjioy writing howecer it jist seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost jst trying to figure out how tto begin. Any recommendations orr hints?
