Appalachian Trail Thru Hike: Glasgow, VA to Waynesboro, VA

Darwin and Legs try their hand at slack packing, and ponder the question, “How many times can you sweat through your shirt in a day?” The last of the Virginia Highlands are coming to an end, and so are the big climbs. Only the Priest, and Three Ridges remain. There’s rain, there’s heat, there are 20 mile days. It’s the Appalachian Trail!

The Alabama Hills & Other Adventures on Cali’s 395.

The contrast between the Alabama Hills, and the eastern escarpment of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains is something to behold. Below; smooth, earth tones abound, as stacks of monzogranite boulders lay scattered in all directions. Above; a sharp, blue wall of glowing granite, with Mt. Whitney serving as the highest spear tip. Tucked into the labyrinth, hide natural arches. The best part, it’s just one stop on the outdoor playground that is, California’s HW395!

GEAR REVIEW: THRU HIKE TESTED – Ultralight Adventure Equipment Circuit Backpack

For 150 days, I hiked from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail. From April 17th to September 13th, the ULA Circuit sat “comfortably” on my back, in a plethora of conditions and terrain. Despite having to carry extra water in the desert, a bear can in the Sierra, and extra rain protection in Washington. The pack lasted the entire hike with some wear and tear associated with extreme, and continuous use. It is ready for another long hike, after some needed, but easy repairs.

Room for Adventure: Iceland’s Southern Coast

Ironically, in a place where a stable government had been established by 930AD, the human footprint on Iceland feels so- temporary.

In the relative youth of the land, Earth’s primordial state can be seen, where humans are still only renting their space on the land.
