"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel
that you, too, can become great." ~Mark Twain
My name is Steve Garufi, a single, 39-year-old, long-haired guy who lives in
the mountain paradise that is Chaffee County, Colorado.
My primary vocation is being a Licensed Professional Counselor.
(Yes, a "talk therapist.")
I do a lot of hiking,
mountain climbing and cycling in my free time.
Eating ice cream, photographing sunsets, wasting hours on Twitter
and dancing in my
living room to old 70's disco and Michael Jackson tunes. I also go *HOG WILD* over
my Arkansas Razorbacks.
Wooo Pig Soooie!
In 2003, I took up the sport of cycling,
and loved the impressive cardiovascular fitness it gave me. In 2008, I
bicycled solo across America
and completed my first book about that adventure; it is available and for sale.
I also run www.bikeacrossamerica.org,
which provides cycling information and encouragement
for those who desire to bicycle across the nation. My
tutorial videos on YouTube
answer frequently asked questions I receive about this topic.
