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….

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…

Cycles

Cycles

I have for over a year now posted a blog post 2-3 times a week, every week. That’s actually more work then you would think, while also being less. I pre-populate the posts and schedule them ahead. I am never really sure when I write something when it will actually come out. Unless its particularly time or date sensitive, in which case, I set it to post for a specific date. More often then not my own messages and lessons…

Anxiety On Paper

Anxiety On Paper

I like to do most of my writing on road trips. I like to sit in the passenger seat and just type and type and type. Somehow the words just pour out of me this way. The world running by the windows, much like it feels like life is doing outside my brain. Funny thing about my particular brand of anxiety is that it both speeds my brain and slows it.   Somehow it feels like I am thinking of 800…

You’re Ridiculous

You’re Ridiculous

I am all about amusing myself. I use to worry if it amused or annoyed others. I got lucky to currently (as of writing this and hopefully as of when it posts) be dating someone who thinks I’m “Ridiculous” and likes it. He says “ridiculous” in a way that is so full of humor and love and it’s the best compliment when he says it. The first time he said it was when I went on some diatribe about a…

Flicker

Flicker

Birds have always been huge messengers for me. Many times the birds I see are crows or the occasional Blue Heron. A while back the Northern Flicker entered my life.   I had never heard of the Northerner Flicker. One day on the way to a hike, after I had a bit of a hiatuses from the woods I had a bird fly right in front of my car. Not like a normal oh crap I almost hit that bird type….

Duncan Knob Day 1

Duncan Knob Day 1

I recently took an impromptu overnight trip into the woods in the middle of the week. I unexpectedly had some time off and I am very lucky to have friends that have similar schedules as me. It turned out that Tuesday and Wednesday were supposed to be beautiful weather. As anyone who hikes or backpacks knows mid-week, while school is still in session, the trails are usually empty. I left it to my friend where we would go with only…

Passion

Passion

People have described me at times as passionate. I have used the word to describe others. We normally talk about it when someone is all into a subject, they are knowledgeable and at times like a dog with a bone about it. I can get like this about perceived injustices or when I think people aren’t treated properly.   I get like this about children rights and animals. Often in a “passionate” state I will talk louder and faster and often…
