Randy Cassingham’s weird-but-true newsletter, This is True has named this website, www.dcasler.com, as “Bonzer Site of the Week!” Here’s Randy’s writeup:
BONZER WEB SITE OF THE WEEK: http://dCasler.com — Southwestern Colorado
Blog. Yeah, really: this is just some guy’s blog. It’s not even focused
on just one topic: the main sections are offroad motorcycling in a tiny
county in southwest Colorado (Ouray — my county!), but also ham radio.
For the trail biking portion, blogger Dave Casler takes you on tours of
the backwoods of this beautiful part of the state. GPS tracks show you
exactly where, and (new!) Dave’s helmetcam shows you what the trails
are like, too. (The one time he fell down, he had turned the camera
off. Dang it! THAT video would have gone viral!)
But that’s not Dave’s only hobby: he’s also a ham radio nut (which is
how I met him: he was my first contact when I arrived in Colorado in
1996). That section of his site has videos covering every chapter in
the beginning ham radio Technician license manual, to point out what
you need to learn from that chapter (and any pitfalls). If you go
through all of that, you’re almost guaranteed to pass the (relatively
easy) licensing test. And you can do it at your own pace.
Last, Dave is also a fantasy novelist (in his copious spare time).
Click on the “Mt. Sneffels Press” link for info on his books, if that’s
a genre of interest. (My wife and I are even characters in his trilogy.
In short, a TON of neat info if you’re interested in any of these three
Wow! What an honor! Thanks, Randy!
