I am Coloradoan living life to its fullest. I love moving my body, exercising my brain, and discovering all that this magical Earth has to offer. My passions include animals, nature, history, mysteries, comedy, stories, art, music, and problem solving.
Boose on the Loose is a collection of my stories – mostly about adventures in outdoor travel, with some other goodies thrown in. If you prefer to listen rather than read, then make sure to check out the Boose on the Loose podcast, streaming now on Spotify!
What is a boose?
A boose is a mythical cross between a bear and a moose, which is brave and fearless. “Boose” is also sometimes used in reference to Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Moose party, which stood for the spread of public lands for the enjoyment of all. Though long gone, the party has left an enduring legacy through national parks and anti-corruption laws.
Why the focus on “misadventures”? Isn’t that bad vibes?
It’s not bad vibes, it’s good storytelling. Nobody wants to hear about the trips where everything is wonderful; that’s great for me but boring for the listener! Plus, the key to outdoor adventures is to expect the unexpected. No matter how prepared you are, things can go wrong… but that’s where the adventures begin.
Blogs are dead.
I use other people’s travel blogs to plan my trips and find them very helpful. I hope that my stories might help people with planning as well as provide some entertainment value.
