Take Advantage of this Powerful *Free* Tool?

      8 Comments on Take Advantage of this Powerful *Free* Tool?

In the relatively brief time I’ve been publishing this blog, I’ve written about a myriad of topics, or so it feels anyway. I’ve talked about how to put some money aside for adventuring. I’ve told you about books I’m  reading and suggested some that you might be interested in picking up and thumbing through yourself. I’ve warned you not to… Read more »

The Liebster Award

      6 Comments on The Liebster Award

Recently, my friend Allysse nominated me for a Liebster Award. I was very excited about this for a couple of reasons. First, it introduced me to some new blogs I was unfamiliar with, and I’m already enjoying what I’m reading. Second, it gives me an opportunity to answer some questions about myself and my blog, and Allysse asks really good… Read more »

A Special Halloween Message

      Comments Off on A Special Halloween Message

Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday. I love it, though probably not for the reasons you’d expect. It’s not the pagan tradition, though I do admit to feeling a spiritual draw to the holiday. It’s not the children in costumes, though I do take delight in seeing them. It’s not horror movies and scary stories, though I love experiencing them. And it’s… Read more »

My Hand! An Update…

      2 Comments on My Hand! An Update…

Yesterday morning I had my cast removed. My broken bones have fused, but there is still some bruising and swelling. Nothing severe, just uncomfortable with a little pain thrown in to keep things interesting. I have never been more excited to wash my hands than I was yesterday! Now my hand is confined to a brace. It’s not glamorous, but… Read more »

Don’t Pigeonhole Yourself

      2 Comments on Don’t Pigeonhole Yourself

This isn’t a surprise to people who know me, but this isn’t my first blog. I previously had a blog about my attempts at printmaking, which was on the same site as my earlier blog that was a web-comic I briefly wrote and drew whilst unhappy with a job situation. Before that I had a livejournal where various friends and… Read more »

A Broken Hand Breaks my Timetable!

Well friends, please allow me to apologize in advance for the delay in my upcoming posts. I promise that they’re all coming, I’m just not moving very quickly on the keyboard at the moment because my right hand is in a cast. I took a little fall yesterday while on a hike, and while trying to self-arrest, I landed on my… Read more »

It was a nice ceremony, lots of great people, and then Clarissa and I ran off to the Black Hills for a few days to honeymoon in our own intrepid way. Well, the honeymoon is over.

Well everyone, by the time you’re reading this, Clarissa and I will be headed to her home town in South Dakota where we’ll get hitched on Saturday. After that we’re running farther West in the state to hang out in the Black Hills for a few days. While I’m away, I’ve got some new content scheduled to post automagically. You can… Read more »

An Ode to Old Friends

      Comments Off on An Ode to Old Friends

When I was a boy, I had a friend who was willing to accompany me on whatever weird imaginary adventure I wanted to go on. I have no doubt that he, at times, had to have wondered what kind of world I was living in. I’m still trying to figure that out myself. But he was always game for some… Read more »

Coming Attractions…

Greetings everyone! After a weekend of camping, I didn’t have much time to work on posts for this week yet. My goal is always to have one or two articles a week for you to read, but life will sometimes get in the way of that; I really want to invest myself in my adventures and microadventures, so it can occasionally… Read more »

My Experience with the “Art of Manliness In Action” Challenge

      Comments Off on My Experience with the “Art of Manliness In Action” Challenge

This post will talk a lot about Art of Manliness. I’m a fan, but I’m not affiliated with Art of Manliness in any way. Though I don’t think of my blog as catering to men more than women, this particular post will be of particular interest to fellow men. Ladies, don’t let that stop you from reading. Gentleman, if you’re… Read more »

Welcome, and thanks for checking out the inaugural post of Intrepid Daily. You may have some questions. What is this blog about? Who is this guy writing it? Why is it called “Intrepid Daily?” To answer those questions I’ll have to tell you a little story. All my life, I’ve dreamed of adventure. Action heroes were my idols, and I too… Read more »
