Biking and Camping Links:
  •, this is an searchable index of travelogues and trip reports for biking, kayaking, climbing and hiking trips.
  • Bike Maintenance, an excellent referance for help with all sorts of bicycle maintenance. Sponsored by Park Tool Co.
  • Gregory Mountain Products, a shameless plug for the manufacture of my backpack (the Robson Pro). It has proven itself to have lots of great features, haul a large amount comfortably, and be very rugged. When I have called the company with questions or suggests they have been prompt, courtious, and responsive.
  • US National Parks Net, is dedicated to providing information on all US National Parks. I have found the site very helpful in planning my trips.

Engineering Links:

Photography Links:

  •, This is the service I use for ordering prints from my digital images. I'm very happy with the quality for the price.
  •, A great site with very detailed reviews for just about every digital camera, memory card, accessory out there.  Lots of great information.

Other Links:

  • The Weather Underground, I used to use but that had too much fluff along with the weather.
  • Trifuel is an excellent triathlon and multi-sport web site. It has a tons of information on training and equipmnent and an excellent discussion.
