Unlike jackass, the Nitro Circus guys actually are professionals. But that doesn’t mean they got all their marbles because they don’t. —Johnny Knoxville Jackass producers Jeff Tremaine, Johnny Knoxville, and Trip Taylor team up with Travis Pastrana, Gregg Godfrey, and Jeremy Rawle to deliver the fi rst televised season of Nitro Circus on MTV. Travis Pastrana, legendary freestyle motocross pro and nine-time X Games gold medalist, has built an empire (not to mention his own private playland) doing what was previously thought to be impossible and almost always unadvisable. Whether it is jumping out of an airplane without a parachute or being the fi rst rider to ever double-back-fl ip a motorbike, Pastrana knows no bounds. Joining him on this latest stunt-fuelled fest of bad ideas and good times are childhood friend and pro mountain biker Jim DeChamp, washed up pro motocross rider and loud-mouth Andy Bell, pro motocross racer Jolene Van Vugt, professional skier/base jumper Erik Roner, and husky construction worker/stunt dummy Streetbike Tommy. Together, the tight-knit crew’s hilariously intense and irrational rivalries make Nitro Circus the most entertaining trainwreck of a show to slam onto the television airwaves in years.

This week on The Best of Car Talk, Dr. Anastas is having a slow day at NASA. How do we know? He’s wondering how his car would fare in zero gravity, if he brought it along for a ride on NASA's “Vomit Comet” airplane. There might be some traction problems, but would the car even start? Elsewhere, Ann's snowboarding trip got more exciting when her tire caught fire heading down the mountain; Dana fears she’s heading for an explosion after her husband epoxied her Civic’s leaking radiator with J-B Weld; and, every time Dennis washes his wife’s car, it won’t start the next day.

Colorado has 53 14ers, more than 600 13ers, and hundreds of other peaks that can be reached without special equipment or expertise. Numerous guides dryly catalog these trails, but 'Best Summit Hikes in Colorado' stands out from them all. Author James Dziezynski has meticulously selected 80+ of the state's absolute best peaks in more than 50 superlative hikes, and his opinionated narrative brings each route to life. Each summit is included because of a notable feature--whether it's the site of a ghost mine or airplane wreckage, has thundering waterfalls or colorful floral meadows, is the best summit for spotting wildlife or bringing out-of-town friends, or is very accessible. Some peaks offer unique opportunities, such as a trailhead accessible only via a steam-powered railroad. Several summits are described in no other publication. Covering all Colorado's major mountain ranges, including the well-known Sangre De Cristo, Gore, Sawatch, Indian Peaks, and Maroon Bell wilderness areas to the lesser-known Grenadiers, Medicine Bow, and Outer San Juan peaks, this distinctive guide makes it easy to select exactly the right hike for the right day, the right mood, and the right companions.
Stones is a chronologically composed collection of mostly humorous, often self-deprecating, bite-sized anecdotes selected from a broad spectrum of experiences extending across the author's 45 years in pastoral ministry. The reader will be pleased to discover that these brief, self-contained narratives provide fresh, first person, real life experiences featuring a wide variety of personalities, attitudes, perceptions, prejudices, and expectations ... most of which will catch you by surprise. Serendipitous discoveries are sometimes even more delightful when they first appear camouflaged as something else; such as being pulled over by an Arkansas State Trooper on a remote mountain highway, or fishing without benefit of bait or tackle in the shallows of a Georgia river, or being overly anxious for worshippers to exit the sanctuary on an island in the Irish Sea, or unknowingly having coffee with the president of the World Bank, or being handed a three-battery flashlight by an airplane pilot before take-off. If you enjoy anecdotal reading, when the twists and turns are not always predictable, you will relish this opportunity to look over the author's shoulder as he views his ministry in the rear view mirror.
Just as the Blue Ridge Mountains dot the landscape of this famed North Carolina county, so do the spirits of the residents who have long since passed. At the Hickory Ridge Museum, one cabin fills with the scent of pipe tobacco just before its otherworldly resident appears, and the ghost of a hanged Tory captain rides his steed along Riddle's Knob every misty midnight. From the story of the haunted spring near the Watauga River frequented by the ghost of a headless dog to the distant buzz of a phantom airplane flying high above Howard's Knob mountain in Boone, these tales are bound to chill even the bravest of readers. Noted journalist Tim Bullard delves into the eerie past of Watauga County as he recounts the stories of the souls doomed to forever roam the pine-covered hills.
In the hours before his sayonara party, a handsome young American vanishes from the Japanese village where he has been the first-ever foreign English teacher. The first result is a throng of disappointed women. But when Stuart Norton fails to show up back home in Utah, or anywhere else, his disappearance quickly becomes more ominous. Something bad has happened to the town's first and only foreign teacher. The town is Kitayama, a beleaguered old castle town in the northern snow country. Stuart's disappearance threatens the Kitayama International Business Plan, and loyal town fathers scramble to squelch the mystery and preserve their tenuous grasp on modernization. Thus Stuart's problems in Kitayama are effectively hidden, leaving it to the next teacher, grizzled Tommy Morrison, to grope his way to the truth. A refugee from a shattered inter-racial marriage and a fizzled pro hockey career, Tommy MacArthur can feel the young man's torment. He is also rebellious enough to defy town fathers and explore the fate of his countryman. As his own teenage son becomes a runaway in the United States, Tommy latches on to Stuart's case and sees it through to its heartbreaking conclusion. Tommy makes three Japanese friends along the way, and their viewpoints inform the story. Wealthy old Yoichi Ono believes in a ghost named Kappa, and he may have reason. Noriko Yamaguchi, Tommy's miserably married ''handler,'' shows him the love hotel. And a vast ex-sumo wrestler, Yohei Wada, placidly steers them all toward the heart of things. Together, they assemble the pieces of Stuart's tortured final days. Then they climb the local mountain, and within the gloom and isolation of an ancient shrine, they find the young man's body, hanged. But Tommy has made enemies along the way, too. And as the truth about Stuart's anguish and suicide is at last revealed, Kitayama officials quietly arrange for Tommy's deportation. The parting is bittersweet. Kitayama has grown and changed, and now a true debate over modernization can begin. And Tommy has grown and changed as well. Understanding now his place in the world as a white man, as a father, and - hoping against hope - as a husband, he boards his airplane for home.
