The Road Ahead

I apologize for always using sappy ambiguous headlines, I don’t know what to title my stuff half of the time (see: my recent Youtube video titles such as “Evocative Video Title” and “Some Mountains and Stuff”). I’ve been thinking a lot about what life is going to be like without a long hike to embark … More The Road Ahead

Another “So You Want to go Out on a Long Hike” Guide/FAQ

I remember how overwhelming my first hike felt. You’re worried about getting to a town with no resupply options, you’re worried you’ve planned each stretch out wrong, you’re worried about conditions on trail hundreds of miles and months away from your computer desk with your haphazard notes with town names circled and lines connecting to … More Another “So You Want to go Out on a Long Hike” Guide/FAQ

Oh Boy

Small update and stuff. My apartment is pretty much all packed away.  There’s a bunch of small things here and there that I kinda just stare at wondering what to do with and my gear is kind of all over the place, but it’s pretty much done. I’m laying on the floor right now staring … More Oh Boy

A lot of people say the trail doesn’t change you really, and I agree with that to a degree.  I’m not a different person really despite a few new small additions … More Post-Trail Blues

It’s All Good

Hey everyone, I’m not going to update on my zero days in Idyllwild until I get more pictures taken, this town is so cool!  But I can’t really do that until tomorrow, and I’m leaving tomorrow which isn’t conducive to keeping the blog updated.  I need to start taking more pictures of the towns along … More It’s All Good

Huh, Okay

Snappy headline!  Bam!  No I’m not passive aggressively going to rant about something vague that applies to no one. What I’m brushing off my shoulder is that I’m sitting here in my room for one last weekend.  In seven days, I will be heading to Campo.  Well, six by the time I post this probably.  … More Huh, Okay
