Me and my shred stickMe and my shred stick

Aaaaahhhhh the crisp fresh mountain air, shredding lines in the trees, leaning back on my snowboard down the face of a bowl, and enjoying the killer views are just the beginning why I go to the mountains of the west coast of North America for snowboarding. Plus it dumps the POW! Over the  years I have gone on a few snowboarding trips. Mainly out to Utah, Colorado, or Vermont. I even did a road trip across the USA to go snowboarding. But this was my first trip outside the U.S.A. to go snowboarding. I decided to go to Revelstoke & Kicking Horse in British Columbia, Canada. Why Revelstoke & Kicking Horse?   That's why! Revelsto...

The Cardboard Classic has been going on for years now. I attended this years Cardboard Classic this past Friday. The event is held at Jack Frost Mountain in the Poconos, Pennsylvania, USA. and the race/event is on the tubing hill. The Cardboard Classic is organized by a local radio station, MMR 93.3 with the well liked & followed DJs Preston & Steve. Racers and spectators are out in the early morning tailgating in the parking lots. Beers are being slammed, B.B.Q.s are hot, and all this is happening around 8 a.m.. The fun didn't stop until the event is over, just before 2 p.m.. If you are older than 18, everyone and anyone can enter the race provided you follow ...

The eight hour bus ride from Moshi to Dar es Salaam was surprisingly comfortable. I arrived in Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania, around dinner time. My goal was to get to Zanzibar, an semi-autonomous part of Tanzania, that day. Unluckily the ferries had stopped for the day. The ferry was a cheaper route, $35, but for whatever reason I was in a rush. Plus Dar es Salaam is not the prettiest city in the world and I wasn’t too sure about how I felt staying a night there, so I wanted out. It costed extra but I would be in Zanzibar by tonight. I boarded a puddle jumper plane and two hours later I was there for $90. Traveling this fast just adds more stress. I wa...

The dreaded bed bug! What are Bed Bugs? Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) are tiny, slim, parasitic insects that feeds solely on the blood of people and animals while they sleep. Bed bugs are reddish-brown in color, wingless, range from 1mm to 7mm and can live several months without a blood meal. Ouch! Finding Bed Bugs Bed bugs can be found everywhere, even in luxury casino hotels. It is not uncommon to find these critters in the bedding of hotels, motels, hostels, guesthouses, and even in your own personal home if your not careful. When you arrive in your new room, check every square inch of the mattress along with the pillow. Usually you would find bed bugs along the ...

The sun came out and I took full advantage. I made sure I got plenty of vitamin D, 9.5 hours of wondering around Montreal! After dealing with freeing cold temperatures this winter in Montreal it felt so good to be outside for a full day without shivering at all. Here are some of the photos of my day plus I also tossed in my V-Day photo!

That's me!That's me!

Even though there was once a murderer called the Craigslist killer, that does not stop me from doing my best find rides on Craigslist.com. On Craigslist.com there is a rideshare section were people post if they can provide a ride or if they are in need of a ride. You can get rides that are short and long distances. Craigslist has provided me with safe and legit paid rideshares and with an absolutely waste of time in effort in trying to find a ride. It is possible to even get free rides as well, it basically internet hitchhiking. I even had a free ride from Philadelphia to St. Augustine! I had this idea of using the internet to get around the world and then I saw the do...

One of the many benefits of Couchsurfing: Private concerts.One of the many benefits of Couchsurfing: Private concerts.

Anchorage, Alaska My Couchsurfing host happened to have many hobbies. He was a coffee connoisseur, was part of a wine club (which I took part in, cheers!), and also like to host small intimate venues at his home. In the morning my host, his brother, and I prepped for the show. We cooked up gravy and baked biscuits, laid out a massive bloody mary spread, and drank craft beers. His friends all showed up bring food with them and the artist played great music. She had an angelic voice and he told the best stories through the lyrics of the songs, plus he had hilarious interludes. What is your best couch surfing experience?

I'm Here: Ottawa, CanadaI'm Here: Ottawa, Canada

It was an 1.5 hour drive west from Montreal over to the capital of Canada, Ottawa. My girl and I made the trip together to see the city and to have get some eats. Ottawa at this time of the year is uncomfortably cold and this was not including the wind chill factor. It was almost unbearable to walk around the city, but we made the best of it, regardless of our dropping body temperatures! It was already late in the day and it was short trip so we concentrated on seeing the... After that my we grubbed on massive burritos at Burrito Borracho on Clarence St., which has an abundance of restaurants along with the surrounding area of the ByWard Market. From th...

Notre-Dame Basilical

Located in the historical district of Montreal is Notre-Dame Basilical. The exterior architecture of the church is gothic revival and the interior is truly stunning. There are golden stars painted on the ceiling, an organ that has 4 keyboards, 99 stops, and 7,000 pipes, and an altar like nothing I've ever seen before. I am a fan religious places of worship because of their style, beauty, and the attention to detail. The Notre-Dame Basilical is one of the best.
