Quick jaunt to San Francisco means a stop at City Lights, one of the all time greats. Treated myself to the new Murakami, plus this fascinating non-fiction by a Czech writer (check out the gorgeous book jacket). Oh yeah, and books, not bombs. 📚 @citylightsbooks #citylightsbookstore #bookshop #independentbookstore #books #bookstore #sanfrancisco #read #readafuckingbook #readinglife #newbooks #travel #booksnotbombs

Some of you know that I’m a librarian. I’ve been thinking a lot, since moving back to the US, about what skills I can bring to bear on making my community and country better places to live. Since I’m trained in curating, analyzing and sharing information, I decided that what I could do is help people learn better skills and dispositions for dealing with fake/false news and media manipulation. I’m partnering with @humanitiesmontana for their Informed Citizens series and my first gig is at my own @missoulapubliclibrary talking about how fake news spreads. I’m super honored and more than a little freaked out because, 1) it’s my library and I want to do a good job for them, and 2) it’s a complicated topic with exactly zero easy answers. Anyway, it’s my way of giving back (and fighting back) using the tools and education I have. If you’re interested in me using this space over 2020 to share tips and tricks with you let me know. I’m sure I can fit those in between photos of cats and cars! 😉#fakenews #fightfakenews #librarian #librarianlife #humanitiesmontana #informedcitizens #democracy #criticalthinking #mediamanipulation #missoula #missoulapubliclibrary #think #library #loveyourlibrary
Man. I did not think @ourblackcoffee @blackcoffee.mt could make me any happier, but these gift boxes are the. best. Needed some Missoula gifts for friends out of state and this is perfect. #blackcoffeeroastingco #coffee #madeinmissoula #buylocal #missoula #theperfectgift #missoulamade #locallyowned #ilovecoffee

Adventure Journal publishes a really slick quarterly mag brimming over with adventure stories from all over the world, and hosts an excellent website and blog populated with cool rigs and bikes of all kinds, and news and commentary from the adventure world.

We were excited to be interviewed by AJ‘s online editor, Justin Housman, for an article about Toto the Land Rover and our travels in Africa. We really love this line from Justin:

…Land Rover Defenders have a plucky stoic quality to them—if you’re driving somewhere remote, where you really, really don’t want to be stranded, you wanna be in a Defender.

Couldn’t have said it better ourselves! Give it a read here:
