“Philip Chan may hate ‘Filled Regions’ but loves helping people with their Revit projects!

He won’t hold back a disappointing glare and sigh when he sees the mess you’ve made of your Revit project, but he will sit down and spend the time to help you Click to Read More

Monarch Crest Trail

Colin and I recently returned from our Colorado Trail excursion. While we didn’t ride the trail end to end we did have an amazing trip and rode over 260 miles and climbed 20,000 feet in the process. We bikepacked from just outside of Denver to Breckenridge then decided to rent a car and ride singletrack around the state without all of our bikepacking gear. We rode some amazing trails around Salida, Crested Butte and Durango and camped in some amazing spots along the way.
