Wyoming – The Real Trip

Wyoming – The Real Trip

Most photos in this post were taken by Beau So here is where I am going to take a turn. I’ve been outlining our days and events of this backpacking trip and as I am writing it I am boring myself.   There was so much to tell and so many moments.   “We” (the collective group) had inside jokes and quotes and moments that took our collective and individual breaths away.   I have been telling a step-by-step account of each day…

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 2

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 2

Day two started with a good breakfast of oatmeal and the group finding out that M&K were not going to be moving on. They were early enough in the trip that LJ would hike them back to the car, drive them to Jackson Hole, drive back to the trail head and hike back to meet us sometime later that night or the next morning. We headed up a mountain straight away that day. The elevation from our first night to…

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 1

Wyoming Backpacking – Day 1

Photo taken by Beau! Day one of our backpacking adventure really started after a morning of packing and repacking our packs and an hour and a half van ride over the Teton Pass into Idaho. From there we made it to the Jedadiah Smith Wilderness and the trailhead that would start our adventure through the Teton Range.   Our group was split into two groups of 10 starting from opposite ends of the same trek with the hope of finding sites…

Trip of a lifetime – to discover living and my best friends life journey

Trip of a lifetime – to discover living and my best friends life journey

This summer I am spending 22 days traveling through parts of the United States I have never seen. This trip has been in the planning for 2 years.   It includes 6 days backpacking in the Tetons during “The Great American Eclipse” followed by road trips around several states to different camping and hiking areas.   This is an adventure of bucket list proportions and once again pushes the limit of my comfort zone and what I ever thought I would do….

Thru Hiking and Fear

Thru Hiking and Fear

As a hiker I often daydream about doing one of the large “thru hikes”. A “Thru Hike” is a hike that goes end to end of a particular trail. To “thru Hike” means you don’t leave the trail expect for resupply and clean up along the route.   Most common trails for thru hiking in the US are the Appalachian Trail in the east and Pacific Crest Trail in the west. These take on average 6 months to hike.   I know…

100 AD humans still human

100 AD humans still human

I have a tendency to do road trips with only slightly less ADD then I do my everyday life. This means there is a chance I will see a sign and go “OH lets go there!” Luckily I tend to travel with people who not only encourage this behavior but also fully participate! Recently I saw a sign for Earthworks Circle Mounds Park in Ohio. It turned out it was only 4 miles off our path and with a quick Google…

Asshole self awareness

Asshole self awareness

I had this boss/mentor many years ago who was one of the best mentors I’ve ever had. He had a background in diplomacy and infections disease, which somehow made him one of the best managers I’ve ever had the joy of working for. He was extremely passionate and compassionate while maintaining a level of professionalism and personal separation that was breathtakingly moving. Seems an odd phrase for a manager I know but you don’t meet to many people who (with…

During a conversation about how I believe you just do life with some people and somehow find each other over and over again, my best girlfriend’s (Jackie) mother recommended a movie (also a book) she thought was worth a watch. It was called Snow flower and the Secret Fan.   I did not read the book but Jackie and I did attempt to watch the movie. I think the book would probably be more moving for both of us so I…

Tree Hugger for Life

Tree Hugger for Life

When I was young the term “tree hugger” was used as a derogatory term. It meant someone who was wishy-washy, flakey, vegetarian, and probably didn’t have a white or blue-collar job. Most likely they didn’t have collars at all and a large portion of society wouldn’t call what they did for money a “job”.   While for some, this term is still used as derogatory, for many people, myself included, it’s worn with pride. I consider myself a tree hugger. I…
