Back in November an amazing video popped up in my Feedly called Angel’s Share: Exploring Scotland’s Singletrack and Single Malt. I’m a big fan of mountain biking. I’m a big fan of Scotch. And I’m a fan of Ben Howard whom I’ve heard a few times and was chosen for the soundtrack. But a couple […]
What’s the best way to wind down after a hard day of trail building and mountain biking? Alcohol and bacon of course! And how do we combine the two into a single snack for uncomplicated gluttonous consumption? With Chippoke’s Cabin Fever Maple Whisky Bacon Grease Infused Bacon Crumble Brown Sugar Caramelized Ghost Chile Chex Mix! […]
Trunkmonkey Racing backs Mac Ride! This is insanely cool. What happens when you cross a kid named Mac and a Mountain Bike? You get Mac Ride, a Kickstarter out of Vancouver, eh! From their Web site: It was my wish for our children to benefit from these same outdoor adventures as well as my passion for […]
Weight loss isn’t magic. Simply eat less calories than you burn. Easy peasy. That is unless you inadvertently sabotage yourself by getting too geeky and try to use too many nutrition and weight loss Apps to track and manage your progress. I found out the hard way that it’s best to Keep it Simple (Stupid). […]
After 10 miles of rough trail riding on the old 1992 GT Karakoram Full Rigid my slightly out-of-true wheel became a significantly out-of-true wheel with a bent spoke; it was rubbing brake pad in four locations. I guess my fat ass bombing a downhill full of fist-sized loose rocks and small boulders was a bad […]
It’s just a single photo, but Airborne Bicycles has posted a sneak peak photo of their new Guardian 29 on their Facebook page. Since the caption reads “A sneak-peak of one of the new models coming soon~!” there are probably more fresh designs in the pipeline! Speculation is running wild, but so far the consensus […]
In my search for new Mountain Bikes I ran across Airborne Bicycles, a company that has an interesting offering of value-packed bikes (follow them on Facebook and Twitter). I’m intrigued by their product lineup, reviews, and press coverage so I applied to become a member of their Flight Crew. Hopefully the next time you see […]

After shutting down our open houses and baby hedgehog pickups back in March, Kelly and I decided to take advantage of the warmer spring weather. We reviewed the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Guidelines, and felt confident enough to maintain a safe environment. So we finally started organizing outdoor pickups!
What’s the best way to wind down after a hard day of trail building and mountain biking? Maple syrup and bacon of course! And how do we combine the two into a single snack for uncomplicated gluttonous consumption?

Chippoke (and I) had a hankering for a hearty breakfast sandwich this morning. But the pre-packaged frozen sausage, egg, and cheese hockey pucks buried in the quarantine freezer just didn't seem to fit the mood.
Here are basic, yearly, and additional costs for purchasing and taking care of a hedgehog. Please use this as a guideline, as costs will vary. Veterinary rates in particular may vary the most from one clinic to another.
While mite infestations are not common you may have to deal with one or two throughout the life of your hedgehog. It’s important to be aware of the signs and to seek out immediate treatment from a knowledgeable exotics veterinarian.
Hedgehogs are now legal in all of New England and most of the United States! Unfortunately, hedgehogs are still illegal in California, Georgia, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, and The Five Boroughs of New York City.
