Day pack vs. my now starter pack for the PCT. Interested in how the #Kelty Coyote will treat me. Got some new #Brooks shoes as well so we’ll see if this helps my knee and ankle problems. Excited to test it out! What trail should I start with first?

Tried a new hiking meal combination today!! @knorr pasta made with dried milk and #pepperoni ! Although it made a mess in the #jetboil it was pretty tasty! #hikingprep #hiking #hikingfood #backpackfood #travel #travelprep #pasta  #backpacking #pctprep #pct2019
Armstrong Summit, the 3rd in our day. Moments before a crazy electrical storm erupted literally above our heads. Exhilarating, or as my wife put it, “terrifying!”.

It was a steep one (or 3) last weekend. Lower and Upper Wolf Jaws and Armstrong. Was going to add Gothics (again) but the lightning and thunder was too much...

A nice chill afternoon after a failed attempt at the Siberia Creek trail. I definitely feel like I’ve regressed in terms of my progress of hiking which means I gotta amp it up at the gym. Dang it Samm get it together!

So sorry.... Yet another photo of one of my all time favorites out on the trail. Breaking in the @zrc_1904 GF North Adventure in true spirit, exploring the mountain summits and surrounding land.

So on this day 24 years ago we decided what the hell, let’s get married. To my exploring partner through this life and beyond, Happy Anniversary.

Strange to think I used to be so scared to climb up high, or climb anything such. Now I can’t wait to but on top to see the fantastic views!

My wife’s Casio Rangeman proved very reliable this past weekend. Altimeter accuracy was at an all time high with a +/- of just a few feet.

Mount Washington Summit. The ascent via Tuckermans Ravine was spectacular and scenic, but as can be seen here, the descent via the Lions Head was cloudy and pouring rain for 3 hours.

It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you; if you allow it.

I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that?

Up above the world, I see clarity. 
Up here I become whole again. 
At the top I can finally let go.
And embrace the peace of being alone.

1 lb 5 oz vs 12.7 oz. I’ve been working here in Juneau for the past month and decided to treat myself to a gear upgrade. Here we have a pair of the Black Diamond Trail Sport 2 made of aluminum vs Black Diamond Distance FLZ made of carbon. I won’t lie I’m not a big fan of Black Diamond but I’m interested in seeing how these hold up to my style of hiking. #gearupgrade #geartalk #backpacking #blackdiamond #pctprep #pct2019prep #trekkingpolesarelameandonlyweakbabiesusethem

It seems the beginning of each new experience we take “the photo”. It captures that last moment of who we were before the next step of our journey changes us into who we grow to next. We are comprised of these pivotal  moments - fabric woven with joy , sadness, fright, pride, unknowing but confident.  Sometimes for some “the photo” will be the last-to those lost on the trail we are blessed with the time we had together.  Regardless on how many finish or how we finish, we all are changed.  I become filled with awe & gain strength from the earth to continue to even more  instances of “the photo”.

Less than a week until I will be hiking the PCT :) #mtrainier #banderamountain #viewsfordayz #pctprep #hiking #getoutside
Last summer we had the fortune to hike Tuckerman Ravine to the Mount Washington Summit and then back via the Lionshead. It did not disappoint....

As I begin working two jobs this summer and am coming off a day where I worked 12 hours total, I'm just keeping the PCT in the forefront of my mind. All of this hard work will pay off and get me toward my goals. Even though it is hard to be inside all summer, I have never felt closer to the trail.

Day ?? - Etna to Saeid Valley - "Man-eater Lake"

I've seen more than a few pristine alpine lakes on this walk. This one was by far my favorite.  Squeezed into a steep gully, surrounded by tall mountains and slippery scree, it felt like the sort of place that had been frozen in time.  If Rowan hadn't been waiting for me up ahead,  I was very seriously considering descending the saddle to camp right next to it for the night. 
Probably best I didn't. It wasn't until the next day that I pulled out the map and saw it was labelled man-eater lake!

It’s a dangerous business going out of your door. You step onto the road and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off too?

Woke up at 0530 this morning to break down camp! Second run was a better night sleep! This will be my routine everyday out on the #trail. I am thankful that my family has 30 acres of land to get a test run of all my #sleepinggear, and how #isolated I will be from #civilization.

First night testing out all my sleeping gear went pretty smooth, only woke up once, not used to such a stiff sleeping pillow and I kinda #starfish when I’m 💤💤. But I was warm as can be and loved waking up alone in meadow all with the sounds of nature singing to me. 🏕

When I go into the wilderness I find a peace which equates to leaving the bonds of our life on earth. I feel one with the universe. It holds me. Truly “Mother Earth” keeps me in her arms and shows me all the beauty of the land, sea and sky.  Each time I wander here I feel as a child full of wonder.

@the_wandering_pixel and I took our new @ospreypacks bags (Ossy and Mossy) out for a whirl and put a sweet 27miles into our shoes. The British countryside is so gorgeous, we are very lucky!

I think overall we can be happy with our pace and felt pretty strong in the heat, even if the impending hills needed a bit of motivational ‘yeah we got this!’ ‘It’s only a smaaaaall hill’. I even picked us up some reasonable @decathlonuk trekking poles, it was a little awkward at first but I was pretty thankful I had mine on some of the later downhills! Bring on the next weekend walk💪🏽

🌲🌍What if we lived in terms of seconds and minutes instead of days, weeks, months, a year? How would you make each second count? 
Those seconds will turn into days, weeks, months, and years. Eventually, your time will run out. Spend it wisely, spend it happy, spend it passionately, spend it lovingly. That's how you invest your time into something worthwhile
