From July 20th until the end of August, I’ll be trekking along the Great Divide in Canada.
Some tips, pointers, ideas, and caveats about packing backpacking gear when you’ll arrive by plane, train, or bus.
A quick backpacking trip with a good friend. An appropriate way to spend some time before I leave for Canada (and move from the Front Range next month!)
An initial look at my overall plans for thru-hiking Canada’s Great Divide Trail.
A sturdy, reliable, and easy to use water container. Should be a simple item. But most aren’t good. The Reliance Aqua-Tainer is a 7-gallon wonder that works!
The road trip portion of my sabbatical has come to an end. Here are some random thoughts about being on the road since late November 2017.
Call it climate change, weather events, cycles, or bad juju. But there are more fires, swings in snow levels, droughts, closures, etc. Some thoughts.
Hiking in the glorious alpine terrain? See some snow banks? Time to make a backcountry slushy!
Two trips and eight days of guiding. Slushies, alpine views, mountain lakes, fascinating people, skills taught, and lots of wildflowers.
Heading back to the American West across the High Plains of Oklahoma, Texas, and New Mexico.
