Spend that tax refund, or Walk Hard?

Date: Mon, Apr 28, 2008 Wine Tasting

My hiking season is in full swing, and I’m now trekking 20 miles or so of trail each week. But it recently became apparent to me that if I am going to keep up this pace, I had better get a new pair of boots. A pair just like my old pair of Vasques, not [...]

Earth Day links

Date: Mon, Apr 21, 2008 Wine Tasting

This Earth Day - and every day - consider asking yourself if you are truly changing your habits to do the things that really matter. Are you using low-flow shower heads?

Vashti

Date: Thu, Apr 17, 2008 Wine Tasting

Westerns are so much a part of American culture that it’s a rare channel-surfing moment when you won’t see at least one classic western on your TV. Like my dad before me, I cut my teeth on westerns - first in film and later in print - and they began to influence the outdoorsy person I [...]

Some days you feed The Bull, some days The Bull feeds you

Date: Mon, Apr 14, 2008 Wine Tasting

I’ve been wanting to write a post about an April 5th collaborative effort undertaken by five South Bay Area hiking bloggers, yours truly being among them.

Spring Mountain boutique winery welcomes Heidi Barrett as new winemaker

Date: Tue, Apr 8, 2008 Wine Tasting

“The Fantesca story is as much a history of our experiences, our property and the people who have produced our wine as it is a story of the alluring and fun-loving Fantesca character that personifies it,” say Susan and Duane Hoff.
