Changing Pace

Posted by piphunt on June 1, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

A week ago, I was surfing in Bali with five of the best girls I could wish to go on vacation with, Saturday, I basked in the Salt Lake sun on my mountain bike, and Monday, I skied ten inches of powder at Snowbird. The crazy variety in my playing isn’t the only thing that […]

BLUEBIRD!

Posted by piphunt on March 22, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

After camping in the pouring rain and bundling up under grey skies, our spring vacation to the desert wasn’t exactly how I had imagined. Where was my blue sky, warm weather and shorts? After checking into our room at the Imperial Palace, eating a delicious meal at Bartolotta and speed walking back to our hotel […]

A Hint of Spring

Posted by piphunt on March 22, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

It’s snowing in the Wasatch. Not just snowing, dumping and my facebook newsfeed is spewing “best powder day of the year”, “sooo deep at Alta”, and “waist deep? Hell yeah!” every five minutes or so. What am doing on facebook? Well, obviously, I’m not skiing. In fact, I’m so far away from the Little Cottonwood […]

Austin City Limits Music Festival

Posted by piphunt on October 19, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

Growing up smack dab in the middle of nowhere, mountain town, USA, music wasn’t something I actively saw, it just came to me through our one radio station. Yes, Crested Butte is full of bluegrass, jam bands, and some pretty outstanding opera, but the potential for any kid to see a band they want to […]

Palermo

Posted by piphunt on September 27, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

“Here in Sicily, with it’s dreadful poverty, real life is never far from anyone’s mind. The mafia has been the only successful business in Sicily for centuries (running the business of protecting citizens from itself, and it still keeps its hand down everybody’s pants). Palermo – a city Goethe once claimed possessed an impossible to […]

Rant: European Showers

Posted by piphunt on September 15, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

People rave about the food in Europe. The cheese, the cold cuts, the sauces, wine, beer, dessert, gelato, mountains, beaches, and everything in between. However, absolutely no one raves about the showers. It’s not just because the water isn’t temperate, the water pressure pour of the minimal space of elbow room when trying to scrub […]

It’s All Fun and Games Until Somebody Starts Crying

Posted by piphunt on September 13, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

“You’re riding your bike?! You mean, like, push bikes?” “Em, yes, push bikes. I am actually going to pedal” “Across Tirol? What are you, mad?” “I hope not, I didn’t think it would be that difficult.” If difficult is spending five weeks in different Tirolian hotel rooms with your mother, than yes, this trip was […]

Caffeine and Nicotine

Posted by piphunt on September 12, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

Forget your wheaties, your protein shake or your glass of OJ; six cups of coffee and one Monte Cristo Cuban cigar and you’re there. Well, Jim’s there. I’m not quite sure I’d thrive on the same breakfast. Our signature ‘fat kid on a bicycle’ was the first to the top of the Grimsel Pass , […]

Photos!

Posted by piphunt on September 10, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

Some of the latest pictures from the trip. The first big pass we climbed was the Timmelsjoch pass . As we descended for two hours into Merano, Italy, storm was brewing behind us. From Merano we took the train Zernech (it was pouring rain and snowing over the passes), spent a night soaking and in […]

Chicken Dance

Posted by piphunt on September 7, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

It’s after dinner on a school night. The bar is still filled with apre skiers, donning boots and ski pants hours after the lift has shut. Their pilsners and salavtors resting casually as they laugh about the day on the slope. The accordion tunes blaring through the speakers above the fire place as my dad […]
