Yellowstone in 24 hours

Day 5: It rained all...Night...Long. I really didn't mind though since I was nice and dry in my tent. It only sucked when I had to get out to pee once. I made it really quick though. The sound of the rain on a tent is such a soothing one. I sleep really well and so does Motown snoring away next to me.

Weminuche Wilderness: July 8-13, 2017 Day 4

Day 4: I wake around 7am but lie there cuddling my Motown for a while. I hope he feels better. I was contemplating trying to make Squaw Pass today but decided against it once Motown got sick last night. So now we have a much shorter hike out. So do I stay at the lake or start back and camp tonight on Squaw Creek Trail?

Water Filter Then and Now

Water Filtration – Then and Now

People sometimes think that I work out to lose weight. Those people are the ones that don't understand what being fit is about. I'm not saying that I don't appreciate the 30 pounds I've lost in the last year, but it's just an awesome side effect. I don't have kids to “live for” and I don't have anyone to impress but myself. I do it for me--100%.

Start to Finish – Oh Wait, You’re Never Finished

We didn't have a lot of money. We literally went out and bought the bare minimum (which you always find out later is still too much stuff) at the lowest price we could find. So when you hear a gear review from me, you'll get a synopsis of how I came to the equipment I have now.

Trekking Poles – Do I really need them?!

My answer to that question is always a resounding YES! Why? Because they will change your hiking life. They are one of my most important pieces of gear. They are not just for those older bad asses that are still going strong that are finishing a 14er just as you're getting started. I will tell you why I love trekking poles.
