Get Out of Your Box and Get Into a Boat!

It isn’t just the inherent beauty of our natural surroundings that make this area (and much of the planet) rather a gem, but the pockets of breath-taking beauty that are condensed in a relatively small area. Which is why I finally drug myself over to the famous, often praised oasis of the San Juan Islands this weekend.

Make Your New Year's Resolution About Adventure Travel

2018 is right around the corner and if your new-year resolution does not contain going on adventure travel (a weekend camping trip or a multi-week expedition to Antarctica), you should most definitely make it as such!

 

Let's face it, losing 10 pounds and calling aunt Emma more often as new-year resolutions haven't worked out all that well and they never will as they have fleeting affects and they are often triggered by societal pressures.

 

Adventure travel, on the other hand, transforms you for life! Research and facts are clear! Adventure is good for your body, your soul and...

How to be an Ally to a Person of Size in the Outdoors

By Jennifer Davis-Flynn

Next time you’re hiking the trails, mountain biking, paddling, skiing…take a look around. Who do you see? Does everyone look the same?

Outdoor brand catalogs and enthusiast magazines show us countless images of young, white, skinny yoga chicks, ripped female climbers, and a whole lotta dudes. And, not surprisingly, reality often follows suit.

Finding my Bold Out West

Finding my Bold Out West

Sometimes you find yourself and your inner strength in the oddest places – for example a dude ranch.

When people asked me how I got to Colorado, the snarky answer is “Well, I drove over 2,000 miles.” The short, non-snarky answer is “a bad break-up.”

So How Are Those Resolutions Going?

Yeah, yeah…we know. Resolutions Shmesolutions.  We sort of wondered how many people stayed inside on this Colorado snow day and got obliterated on old wine since they have all been on the wagon for a month.

Or maybe you’ve been Planet Orange-ing Fitness Theorizing or whatever. (Patience, Regulars, everyone will be clearing out soon and you can have your playthings back to yourself! ; )

Or maybe you stopped swearing (people do this)…well, let ‘er rip because we all discovered on the facebooks recently that cursing means you are smarter.  EINSTEINS OVER HERE!!!
