Any Readers from Colorado Mountain College?

Because I’m going to be seeing all of you very soon! I’m currently in Glenwood Springs hanging out at my hotel, and getting ready for the event in Rifle tonight! Between the classroom visits; skateboard sessions around campus; and speaking engagements; it looks like it’s going to be a pretty busy week!

An article in the Glenwood Springs Post Independent has already come out, and it’s actually a pretty funny read…

If author and adventurer Kevin Michael Connolly were an ordinary 25-year-old, he would describe himself with ordinary words such as adaptable, curious and stubborn.

But Montana-born and -reared Connolly is an extra-ordinary young man, so he pauses thoughtfully, with a chuckle, to describe himself as “lowbrow, callused, hairy, manic, masochistic and relatively eloquent despite my best efforts.”

Here’s the link to the full article if you’d like to read a bit more.

Here are some extra details about my visit to Colorado Mountain College:

More information on the Colorado Mountain College Common Reader program and the author’s talks Nov. 1-5 can be found on the Web at www.coloradomtn.edu/communities_friends/common_reader.

    Hey Kevin,

    It was great getting to hear your story in person. If you decide to change careers, you could become a comedian! You have a gift with the English language…

    Right now I should be in Edwards listening to you speak but there are some days I can drive & this isn't one of them. Unfortunately my service dawg can't drive me in either, no privileges, as he was suspended for violating a leash law. 😉 Congrats on the Outside article. Love your work & adventures. Keep setting the pace – we like it here at With Alacrity, our nonprofit – we talk about you and your brilliant attitude, our volunteers & clients alike. Thank you.

    Thanks, Titus! Sorry you missed the presentation, but hopefully I'll be back down in your neck of the woods before too long.

    Thanks again and tell everyone at WA hello for me!
