I’ve combined my love of the outdoors (big reason why I moved to Colorado in my 20’s), gear, data, technology and maps to create tools I use to that let me, my family and our dogs play in and explore the outdoors.
I use a database as the nerve center to hep manage data and track my travel and outdoor activities.
In it I track trips and places I visit or want to visit, gear I use, rules to help me maximize my enjoyment of travel and outdoor activities, trip items checklists, events like hikes or ski days, secret tips and tricks for specific location, and bucketlist items I want to do in my lifetime. Some of my datasets from this database I have published below.
The database documentation is here if anyone wants to recreate it for themselves.
Places Dataset. Over the decades I have collected books, files, maps and articles on places to visit and things to do in the outdoors. I have organized it all into a dataset to give it structure so that I can sort, filter and analyze it and map as needed. I add new places as I learn about them.
- Places Map. Map output below with entries added to date.
- Places Data Object. Data in a table format opens in new page.
- Secrets Dataset. Secret tips on places opens in new page.
Bucket Lists Dataset. Many places are on my bucket list to visit. I have created datasets that help me set goals and track progress.
- Colorado Ski Areas. On my bucket list is to downhill, uphill/backcountry and XC ski at each area in the state. This link opens the dataset in a new page.
