There are a great deal of means and ways to get around when you are scheduled to be some place or you want to get across town for some reason or another. Some of the time getting around town might be more fun on a bike and at times can also prove to be a more affordable method of travel.

The end of summer does not equal the end of lawn care.

Normally, homeowners think of lawn care during the spring and summer. But the cooler months of the year is not a hiatus from taking care of your lawn. The cooler temperatures and occasional rainfall the season ushers in is a welcome change for your lawn, and the ideal time to prepare your lawn for the upcoming spring season – but only if you want thick, lush green grass.

Rock climbing

My life isn't ordinary because I don't live in an ordinary place. I toss my gear into the hatchback and jump into the seat, ready to take on the challenges of the cliff face just above Boise, Idaho. I've been hooked to the natural terrain the Boise Valley offers ever since my first climb here, over two years ago. As I drive along the winding, scenic pathway up to the Lucky Peak Reservoir towards my favorite spot, the Black Cliffs, my heart races with anticipation.

I remind myself again to thank the Boise Idaho native, who convinced me that the best place to get my excess energy out was right there at home with him, the region's headquarters for all things recreational. It is available for all in some way or another.  It's thick in the air. It
