Wrangling Colorado’s Greatest Trails

The great outdoors––almost everyone says they love it, but who’s actually got the nerve to go there? And I don’t mean glamping in Grandpa’s backyard in the Catskills. I’m talking deep woods, into-the-wild, find-the-gaps-in-T-Mobile’s-coverage great outdoors, man. There’s nothing like the serenity of a truly silent landscape totally devoid of human influence.

The EV of my Dreams is a Porsche

What do Bill Nye, Travis Barker, A’ja Wilson, and Keanu Reeves have in common? If your guess is that they’re all blood type O-, you’d be…well, weird, maybe correct, and distressingly in sync with the corny misdirection that I’ve imposed on this opening.
