Mojo

I just returned from another whirlwind adventure… a two-parter. I spent 6 days on the Hell Hike and Raft in Idaho followed by a trip to Virginia City in Nevada. Each journey is a well-spring of new discoveries but this time I discovered something old. My mojo. I’ve been phoning it in, photography-wise, for quite some time. Maybe you’ve noticed, …

Hell Hike and Raft: It’s Go Time

hell hike and raft

Today I hop on a plane to Idaho for the Hell Hike and Raft. Follow along with the map from my SPOT Connect via SpotWalla. (I hope this works. This is completely untested, mind you.) I’ll also be trying to post updates to Twitter via the SPOT so we’ll see how this goes. And one more big shout out to …

Journeys

On Monday I set off for the Hell Hike and Raft. After months of anticipation and preparation, it’s finally upon us.

Back in the Saddle

So the last couple of weeks I’ve talked about adventures completed and adventures to come. I’m guessing you probably won’t realize how these two intersect… and it’s not in a good way. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve been seeing my posts about getting out on the trails, upping my pack weight, and upping my distance while …

One of the things about my life is that, even on the heels of a big adventure like the Pacific Northwest Tour, I’m always getting the question, “What’s next?” And as my fellow adventurers know, one of the ways to ease the re-entry blues is to be planning the next adventure. In my case, that’s been in the works for …

The Pacific Northwest Tour – Week 7

Week 7 of the Pacific Northwest tour marks the end of our journey this time around. I wish I could say it wasn’t mostly just driving but we did try to break it up. I fact, this ended up being our biggest week of geocaching as we used the sport to add life to our drive. What I was up …
