Boots & bikes on the ground

Space Mountain from Contemporary Resort parking lot
None of my extensive Disney experience is based on theory. None. Everything i preach is from boots-on-the-ground experience. Same with Glacier, which is now quite extensive.

Three boots-on-the-ground criteria over the years for where to stay at Glacier:

  • Lodging location
  • Wifi/cell signal availability & strength
  • Lodging cost

Note: Some lodging has wifi/cell but it’s poor.

32 miles roundtrip

Bicycling up a mountain
June 2019.

From Avalanche Creek to Logan Pass and back is 32 miles roundtrip. Roughly nine miles to the Loop from Avalanche Creek parking. From The Loop the next seven miles is a long steady climb to Logan Pass and The Continental Divide.

Way back in the day

Taking risks is risky. So is playing it safe. Cheryl and me island hopping during our 600-mile cross-Washington State honeymoon.

Way back in the day we only had one car.

We parked our car and threw our bicycles in the back of a Professor’s pickup truck and hitched a 600-mile ride across Washington State.

Then we rode our bicycles back home to Pullman.

Have been trained since an early age and actively practicing lifelong outdoor skills and wilderness survival tactics.

If Rafiki wasn’t my favorite Disney character, Mougli would be the fav. A boy at home in the wild.

Bike like you want to

pool water test report
Sometimes having today’s date on an insignificant chore feels cool. But not as cool as biking 10 extra miles to do an errand.

Today was a bike day.

Thirty minutes into it had an idea to make the last hour more interesting and purposeful.

Biked a decent distance to Pinch-A-Penny. Ten additional miles to get pool water tested is cool on a couple obscure levels.

Life is not one size fits all. Happy that my size fits comfortably.

Hidden insight is having time to bike instead of drive. Bonus insight is being present, mindful and motivated to know (and do) that staying active is a “until death do us part” commitment.
