Night Hike: Diamond Peak Wilderness

We have not had much time to ourselves recently, or the ability to achieve some much needed escape. This was a small camp-in-hike trip we were able to do one evening after work. I was able to catch some beautiful sunset and milky way shots. Enjoy.   Advertisements

WAY BEHIND: Swift Campout 2016

Welp, I am far behind with updating on this adventure. For this years bike-camping trip for the Swift camp out we decided to ride from La Pine to Hole in the ground Oregon. This is the trip that made me decide that I need a dedicated camping machine, not a 350 single speed 29er that’s…

Onward!

  Chelsea and I have decided to turn the blog into a straight up photography page for myself at this point. We were trying to figure out what to do with the site since we had finished the TAT more than a year ago! I will be posting photo essays and links to my Photography…

The End of the Trail: Oregon, the Pacific Neverland

Read the whole article in Oi Magazine. Link: The Pacific Neverland …We ride to the coast through the Rogue-Umpqua wilderness which passes us off to the Siskiyou forest, creating a nearly uninterrupted path of verdant Douglas firs and Jurassic ferns.

Happy Holidays!

Day Whatever, I give up: Side trip through North Carolina

After falling in love with the first AT thru-hiker town by Woods Hole, we followed the recommendation of a friend to visit Hot Springs, NC too.  It’s a pretty darn romantic place with 108 degree hot springs and secret sidewalks lined with magnolias.  NC was a much needed break for us where we could cheat…

The Time that Jerk Bear Ate a Part of my Truck.

     We were camping in Tennessee along a forest service route near South Holsten lake. At an overgrown camp site called Low Gap. The drive itself was a long and windey climb up to the ridge, the road was pretty rough in most parts. There was a grave near the top as well, NOTHING…

EMERGENCY: Open When Hungry

BIG BIG Thanks to our sponsors at Rise Bar for hooking us up with their protein and breakfast bars.  We keep the A’Snax Box under our seats for quick release action.  It’s especially helpful for whenever we get a little lightheaded in our altitude climb, and the ingredients and flavors are everything you could ask…

Days 2-9: Part 2. Virginia Forever

(The featured picture is of Rob & Ronan walking in the dried up Mountain Lake, VA)  Rob was the one who introduced me to whole nature thingy.  I’ve always loved being outdoors, but besides Central Park (which has been my frame of reference for everything) and the adventures we’ve had together, everything is pretty much…

Last week Chelsea and I did a weekend at Pine creek gorge with Josh from http://www.existexpire.com he should be updating his blog soon with photos from the trip. Unfortunately…
