My name is Christopher Harrod and among other things, I am an environmentalist, spatial data analyst, horticulturalist, and novice mycologist. I will always consider myself a lifelong student. I enjoy living a DIY lifestyle (i.e. canning, refinishing furniture, growing food, auto repair, etc.). I love being frugal, eating healthy, and taking care of my body. Long distance backpacking and getting into the wilderness are some of my favorite things to do. I’ve began to take cycling more seriously and ride everyday both road and mountain. If you ride in the Bay Area, say hello, always looking for new friends to ride and hike with. Β I’m hoping you learn something new by visiting my blog. Please, feel free to contact me or add comments. I love to hear from my readers.
