Earth Day


Welcome to Earth, 3rd Rock from the Sun.  Today is the day that we celebrate it.  I’m not sure why, something from the 1970s.  Anyway despite what you might think you know about me, I do support the earth.  I like it, I love it, I want some more of it.  In fact, I’ve gone … Continued



Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  I hope you’re having a grand ole day.  In the time honored tradition, I am thankful for my travel this year.  All 10,000 miles of it so far. {The Arctic}

Falling Sand


Here’s a cool except from my trip to Kobuk Valley National Park.  Yes, it’s been over 2 months since I’ve gotten back, but I still feel the need to share these things with you. Playing in the #sand in #kobukvalley after we #hiked up one of the #sanddunes, we rested. Some people slid down them, … Continued



We’re at the last of my National Park’s for the Alaska trip, Katmai.  Famous for it’s bears and Brooks Falls.  However, we didn’t go to Brooks Falls though, we spent the time in the backcountry of the park looking for bears up Funnel Creek.  Unfortunately it was late in the year for that particular salmon … Continued

Alaska Video


I don’t think I shared this video with y’all.  I think it’s pretty neat.  Yes it’s 5 minutes long, but there’s alot there.  And damnit, I spent more time than I should have getting the music to sync up with the video well.  So you’ll watch it, and you’ll like it, and you’ll comment on … Continued

Lake Clark


The 5th National Park on my list from Alaska is Lake Clark.  Located around Port Alsworth, I stayed at The General Lodge for a week.  From there were went on an overnight kayak trip, an all day hike, and explored the small town.  It was fun, The General was really a great spot, everything was … Continued

Kobuk Valley


The next park in the list from my Alaska trip is Kobuk Valley.  Also above the Arctic Circle, this park is incredible mostly because of the uniqueness of the Sand Dunes.  The nice thing about this park was being able to stay in the same camp for a few days in a row.  Not having … Continued

Alaska in 360°


Remember the 360° camera I got earlier this summer.  Well, naturally I brought it with me to Alaska.  I took lots of 360° photos, and lots of video.  I even set it up to record a time-lapse of kayaking and hiking.  Unfortunately, Youtube highly compresses the 360 video.  Hopefully they’ll fix that little issue soon.

Alaskan Time-Lapse


You all should know that I’m a huge fan of time-lapses.  Well, on my trip to Alaska, I took quite a few of them, instead of making you watch each one individually, I put them all together in this short two minute video, and I included some sweet music to listen to it at the … Continued

Gates of the Arctic National Park


The park I was most excited to get to – Gates of the Arctic.  I spent 6 days on the Noatak River kayaking over 80 river miles with 11 awesome new friends.  It was some of the most fun I have ever had.  Instead of re-canting what I’ve spent countless nights putting together, I will … Continued
