I got a gearache

Where the hell is the snow? It’s January, and as much as I love my bikes, I miss my skis. When I’m out running or riding the trails, I find myself daydreaming about moving through snowy woods in a different, more graceful way. Getting out for hours, pushing through... Read More ››

Gadget Guru Review: MOTOACTV

Part of the appeal to MOTOACTV is the convenience. The device enables the user to leave the iPod at home and save battery life on your phone. Having only 1 device that does everything, and does it well, is a blessing. We are not yet at the... Read More ››

The Journey of 62 Miles Begins with a New Year’s Day Hike

The Journey of 62 Miles Begins with a New Year’s Day Hike

Clothes Make the Woman – and the Dog

I have to admit that I sometimes wear floral prints.  It drives my 21-year-old daughter crazy and makes her threaten to nominate me for “What Not to Wear.”  (So far I’ve apparently dodged that bullet.) Despite the occasional flowery skirt, I’m actually far from being a “girly girl,” and... Read More ››

Winter Climbing 101

Winter Climbing 101

“I’m gonna go ahead and summit. Without Sherpas.” If I heard that while on the ice I probably would have fallen off. Luckily, I was not on the ice, nor was I belaying anyone at the time. Instead Steve, Sara, and I were watching Melissa and Kim at the... Read More ››

Two new stores (plus one) are better than one

After seven years at The Shoppes at Blackstone Valley, our Millbury MA store will close on Saturday, January 21. While this move makes it easy to question the health of our company in this challenging economy, rest assured that we’re closing our Millbury store in order to focus our... Read More ››
