It’s been interesting to watch the blog world move by over the past few years. Some blogs that used to be the staple of my daily reading…now gone. In their place new and unique blogs have sprouted up. The only challenge here for me is that I’ve gotten busier and busier – so much so that it’s hard to stop by and comment on all the blogs I used to. Which makes me sad. But I still read them daily. Especially the folks that have been around since the beginning. I’m talking about folks that were there from just about the very first post. People like Don, Audrey, Curly Su, Al, Lesser, and Quadrathon to name a couple. All of which have great, interesting and fun to read blogs. These were blogs that I looked up to when I first started out blogging. If you want to see a small snippet of the folks I enjoy following, see my sidebar for ‘Blogs I follow’.
Just last month I passed one million page views. And thanks to all of you, I’ll likely hit the second million before the end of the year. You guys and gals are awesome! So, just for fun, here’s some random statistics over the past three years:

Thanks for reading, I’m looking forward to another three years! Have a great weekend, especially all of you that are lucky enough to have this be a three-day weekend!

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
