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.)

Journeys

On Monday I set off for the Hell Hike and Raft. After months of anticipation and preparation, it’s finally upon us. This type of travel is actually quite different for me and has set me out of my travel and packing comfort zone. Airline travel, backcountry hiking, and whitewater rafting are not activities I’m involved in all that much these …

I’m in a land of massive vistas, violent geologic history, and the dramatic landscapes, but what I love about this place are the little details… The life taking …

It will be the kick-off destination of another 10,000-mile(ish) road trip. As we well know, a trip of this scope lends itself to major changes along …
