Telemark

February 28th, 2007

Here’s a small taste of what I’ve been getting up to at the weekends recently. Telemark skiing in the backcountry, staying at cabins without a chair lift in sight. This is still my first season skiing “free heel”, but I think it’s safe to say that I’m hooked.

Oh, and just for the record, no that is not me exclaiming “pow pow baby” in the audio.

Overland Ontario to San Fransisco

May 2nd, 2005

4 days, 3 trains, thousands of miles of amazing North American countryside whistling past… I’m travelling overland from Toronto, Canada, to San Fransisco, USA, for a three-day Energy Action meeting next weekend. Why? Because it’s possible. Because it’s cheaper than flying. Because the alternative was 6 flights for the round trip, and because at some point we have to start leading by example, realise that stopping climate change means slowing down a bit, and take the leisurely option for our long-distance travel. I can’t wait.
