Product review: Belt-drive Classic from Priority Bicycles

THE GREAT OUTDOORS — In the past decade, belt-drive bikes have transitioned from a novelty to a legitimate alternative to the traditional chain. Things started getting serious in 2007, when a manufacturer called Gates released an impressive system called the Carbon Belt Drive.

What’s the strangest lure you’ve ever used to catch a fish?

THE GREAT OUTDOORS — At one time or another, most anglers experiment with strange lures. Sometimes it happens when the last of the bait is gone or the final fly breaks off.

For the longest time, I opted for the orange light hand weights, the itty-bitty weights that offered little in the way of resistance and almost nothing in the way of a challenge. It wasn’t because I couldn’t lift anything heavier — I just didn’t want anyone to see me struggle.

Dealing with disappointing runs

When I was pregnant with our second baby, my husband was in the running for a job he’d been working toward since we were engaged. He’d done everything he could, including moving us to Utah to take advantage of better opportunities. At the time he was an intern and was all but guaranteed a permanent position.
