Blankets

Blankets While hiking the Appalachian Trail I was told a story from a friend and fellow hiker, Arlo.  The story was about his friend who had thru-hiked the year before us.  As I do not recall his friend’s name, lets call him Tom.  As Tom hiked north from Springer Mtn. in Georgia towards Mt. Katahdin in Maine he grew.  Not […]

Searching for WHAT?

Searching for WHAT?

For a long time now I have laughed, scratched my head, smiled, and at times been dumbfouned by some of the search terms people enter into my websites search feature. I decided to start documenting them. Some times I will make fun of them, other times I will offer help on the subject and some times I will ask “What […]

2007 - PCT - I'm down to this.

Cutting Pack Weight

Cutting Pack Weight   Ever wonder how those hikers with the tiny overnight packs manage to survive the night with such small packs.  Read on and I’ll tell you, so you can do it yourself. It pains me greatly when I go hiking and see people laboring to carry massive packs through the woods.  I ponder what they have in […]

My not so large pack on the PCT in 2007.

Pack vs. Pack

Pack vs. Pack So a while back I did a post called AT vs. PCT where I compared the numbers of both my hikes.  I said I would do a gear comparison.  In the process of doing so I realized I had never posted a post I wrote on how to cut pack weight.  While finishing up that post I […]

AT vs. PCT

Appalachian Trail vs. Pacific Crest Trail (AT vs. PCT) When deciding to hike any of the Triple Crown Trails (Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail and Continental Divide Trail) it can be hard to know which is the right one to start with.  Typically it used to be the AT, then PCT and finally the CDT.  Now with lighter gear, better […]

Why I’m Blessed

Why I’m Blessed

Most times on Christmas I’m always thinking about what I did or worse DIDN’T get for the holiday.  Today my mind drifted to not what I did or didn’t receive but to things I have done so far in my life.  There’s so many people out there who didn’t get anything so it seems so selflish to think about material […]

My goals for 2010 and beyond

My original plan for 2010 was as my Superfeet video said, a solo 24 hour mountain bike race, a 100 mile mountain bike race, various other mountain bike races, hikes, and circumnavigating Mt. Hood by MTB.  Due to major cut backs I’ve had to switch gears.  I’ll get a few mtb races in but not the solo or 100 mile […]
