Three Things About Myself

  1.  I am obsessed with exploring and will always take the long and winding road to see where it goes
  2. I have a Border Collie, Clover,  and a brown lab mix, Daisy, who are my faithful companions on virtually everything.
  3. I am happiest doing anything on a mountain trail

5 Questions for Lana

a.  We love breweries too!!  Colorado has virtually exploded with microbreweries over the last 5-10 years, thank God!!  What is your favorite type of beer and where is your favorite brewery?  We’re mostly IPA fans at the Life Bus.  As a fan of brown ales and porters Lynda is bit of an outcast πŸ™‚

b.  I love your nerdiness.  Especially the list making part.  You might be my older sister’s twin separated at birth.  She is a voracious reader and truly obsessed with lists.  Her lists have sublists, and so on.  It is virtually impossible to pry the notepad out of her hands; it’s as if the list is her life preserver and she won’t let go.  I’m wondering if you get all that’s on your lists accomplished and also what types of books you enjoying reading?

c.  What prompted you to become a vegan?

d.  What is one of your quirkiest traits or moments?

e.  What is your travel / camping dream, if you could go anywhere or do anything?
