Cripple Creek

I never wanted to live in the city, the mountains were my dream… And I did want to travel around the country and see new places but with no money and no real plan, the Air Force seemed to be a reasonable solution. Unfortunately that choice took me directly to the big city where I learned how to program computers. That of course landed me in even bigger cities, the Bay Area in California and eventually Denver, the place I called home for over a quarter of a century. Through it all though, I never got used to the city, the crowds, the traffic, the long commutes and the incredible waste of time required to accomplish the most mundane tasks, like going to the store or the post office.

Finally, after four decades of surburban hell, I am out and I’m never going back. Getting settled nicely in Cripple Creek now, although my progress has been slightly interrupted by car trouble. Which is what brings me to this post… Although I haven’t had transportation for a few days, I haven’t missed any work, only a 15 minute walk. Dropped off the truck for repairs this morning and only had a five minute walk home… This is how life should be, my life anyway.

Sports and Recreation

InclineYesterday started out too cold and sloppy to immediately run out and enjoy the first clear skies in what seems like forever, so I continued to ponder ways of making my pages and sites easier to negotiate. I noticed right away that my main photography page still has way too many non-photography related posts, mostly regarding sports.

Earlier in the year I had created special pages for wedding and model and portrait photography as well as a page for wildlife advocacy. Now it seems is a good time to have a special page for the growing number of posts about all the outdoor sports and recreation activities I continually find fascinating!

So yesterday was the day that S. W. Krull Sports was born! I’m very excited about the possibilities for this community page as it will provide a place for friends and fans of sports to interact and talk about their favorite events and accomplishments! The page participation is growing quickly with already over 50 likes in one day and I’m looking forward to a bright future for all the amazing activities available under the sun for energetic outdoor loving people and athletes!
