We are from Olathe, KS, a Kansas City suburb. We enjoy bicycling, hiking, cross country skiing and visiting new places. Several of our favorite US destinations are Durango, CO, in the San Juan Mountains; Minneapolis, MN, for the cross country skiing; New Mexico for the food and culture; and Portland, OR, for the bicycling and it's proximity to mountains, rivers and the Pacific. My favorite foreign destination so far has been Granada, Spain, but there's a lot of the world yet to see.
While the only things we (my wife, Laura, & I) can really not live without are air, food and water, (we have minimal demands on life), we prefer our water to taste like wine or craft beer; the air to smell like spring rain and the food flavored with hot green chilies or smoked BBQ (we are from Kansas City after all).
