In 2018, we decided to haul a beautiful red chaise lounge around the country, to five different gravel events. We called it: Chase The Chaise. The goal was to celebrate a quick moment in time, snap portraits of those who wanted them, and to celebrate this thing we call gravel in our "portable family room".
For 2019, The Chaise returns, though now a lovely shade of gold. It's headed to six gravel events and started out its slate of appearances at the Mid South 100 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, early last month.
Clearly folks took advantage of the winter to plan and perfect a host of new Chase The Chaise poses, which we celebrate here. Behold The Gold!
What follows are my picks for Best of Chase The Chaise: Mid South 2019. Congratulations to the winners.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
