Monument-based bestselling author still on a mission for kids after many worldly adventures | Lifestyle

Sally Clarkson can’t remember the last time she stayed in one place like this.

Her work as a bestselling author and speaker and in Christian ministry requires lots of travel throughout the year. Or at least that’s the way it had been since her 20s, when the recent college grad traveled to Communist Eastern Europe and Vienna, Austria, to start her journey in overseas missions.

The adventure didn’t stop there.

When introducing herself, Clarkson often tosses out this fun fact: She has moved 19 times, including six times internationally.

It gives people a glimpse into the 67-year-old’s life filled with constant dreaming, reading, writing, mentoring and mothering. But just a glimpse.

In recent months, she hasn’t been going much of anywhere as COVID-19 canceled her travel plans and speaking engagements.

So she’s been home in Monument more than ever. From this house, she’s been blogging; hosting her podcast; managing Whole

Peugeot’s Crossover ebikes ride urban roads and weekend trail adventures

Peugeot has released a bunch of new electric crossovers, but they’re not SUVs. The Crossover ebikes are built for road and trail, feature Bosch motors, per charge battery range of 110 km, grippy thick tires, and either front or full suspension.

The French lion has quite a history in bicycle manufacture, mass producing its first Penny Farthing model in 1886, chopping off its bike division into its own entity in 1926, clocking up 500 models by the mid 1970s, adding a world record speed of 212 km/h to its trophy cabinet in 1998, and introducing its first ebike in late 2009.

The latest additions to the electric-assist portfolio are the eT01 Crossover D9, D10 and FS models. The D9 can be had with a small, medium or large 6061 T6 hydroformed aluminum stepover or mid-step frame – or Sport and Mixt, as Peugeot calls them – and doesn’t come with

Socially Distant Adventures to Embark on in the Southwest

The Southwest is one of the more exotic regions of the United States, covering parts of the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan Deserts, plus the Colorado Plateau (which, for the record, is basically a high desert).

Temperatures here can soar to 125°F in the summer and drop to below freezing (perfect for skiing!) in the winter—and you can find yourself transported from the fiery red desert landscape to high up in the mountains after a relatively short car ride. Once you hightail it out of the major cities, it can feel like you’re in another world—or, at least, as close to an international adventure as you’re likely to get in the age of the novel coronavirus.

The idea of a “desert” is one of barren space, but you can find some of the country’s most unique socially distant adventures in the Southwest: the crystal-clear-blue water of Havasupai Canyon in a

‘Travels with Darley’ launches a new season with 13 travel adventures

A new season of six-time Emmy nominee Darley Newman’s “Travels With Darley” is launching on Ovation TV’s Journy channel on July 15 with a series of 13 travelogues shot in 4K in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the United States.

Previous seasons of Newman’s travel show have aired on PBS, Amazon Prime and other networks since 2016, but this rollout of new episodes comes at a particularly welcome time. We can’t travel right now, but we can come along for the ride as Newman goes skiing at Tahoe with Jonny Moseley, samples oysters in Morro Bay, swims with sharks in Dubai and samples crepes and galettes in Brittany.

The first episode explores California’s Central Coast with a road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway and stops at Hearst Castle, Solvang and Pismo Beach. (And yes, dune buggies are definitely involved.)

A new season of “Travels with Darley” on the

Canyons of the Black Ridge Wilderness | 1,000th Trip Report
Saturday & Sunday, April 25-26, 2020

Before I get started, I just wanted to note that this Trip Report marks an important milestone in the history of This is the 1,000th Trip Report that I have posted to this blog! As much as I would have loved to have gone somewhere further from home for this special occasion, it is what it is, and with the current restrictions in place for the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to stay close to home this time. When this year began, I had no idea I’d end up spending so much time exploring these areas closer to home, and I have really been enjoying getting to know the Black Ridge Canyons Wilderness area a little better these past few weeks!

It’s been just about a month since our last backpacking trip into Lower
