On Tuesday morning I drove up to Princeton, MA for a little multi-sport link-up of Wachusett and Monadnock, we'll call it the "Minuteman" Rodeo. A "Rodeo" is a term I came up with a few years ago that is defined as "an adventure that requires heavy doses of creativity and socially-acceptable levels of competency in multiple outdoor activities." See Orizaba Rodeo.
It turned out to be a super fun day that I'd highly recommend to anyone who enjoys buffet-style outings. Here is the recipe. Bon apetit!
