A busy summer

Hello everyone,

The last few months have been filled to the brim with new experiences for me. I have not, however, had time to write about much of what I have done because I have been so busy. I am working full time at a Software Engineering Internship, renovating a house, and recently became engaged to a beautiful young lady.

I hope to begin sharing the pictures, videos, and experiences form my Alaska trip very soon, but have found it difficult to fit in to such a busy summer schedule. If you want to see some of the videos I will post about later, go check out my Youtube account (the button on the right) to see them.

Some upcoming topics:

– wolves/grizzlies/moose/and dall sheep in Denali

– a train ride from Fairbanks to Denali

– Glaciers, sea otters, and shipwrecks in Whittier, AK

– Dolphins in the inside passage

– too many trips to REI


Also, a site I have posted about previously, but wish to mention again is the Clymb. They are currently offering a promotion where members get $20 for every person who signs up under them and makes a purchase. If you want great deals of gear (I have bought LOTS of my gear from this site), click the icon on the right to sign up under me. You will help me out if you make a purchase and you will also immediately be able to begin getting others to sign up under you. Give it a try!

5000 hits! and Some Updates

Thank you to everyone who has been reading my blog, today I had my 5000th hit since I started this blog. It has been great to see and hear feedback from both friends and strangers as I share my experiences and often hear about yours in response. I thought I would use today to give some updates with changes I have made in the blog that may otherwise go unnoticed and also announce the upcoming material.

1. Top Navigation – I have been updating the top navigation bars to include organized links to all of my posts. If you have not been following from the beginning, feel free to check out what is there!

2. My Portfolio Page – I put up the pictures from Costa Rica that I thought belong in that page. I have not watermarked or edited those [yet]. Feel free to use my photos for non-commercial things (if you do, I would love for you to leave a comment saying what you used them for, I love comments!).

3. Upcoming Material – I plan to do reviews for a lot of the gear I have been using. Part of the reason for this blog is to have a portfolio prepared to begin being a gear-tester should the opportunity arise. I also will be sharing pictures and stories from my spring break rock climbing trip and from may first day on the water in my new kayak. In about 6 weeks, I leave for Alaska. I will have a lot of posts about that when I get back (and hopefully some while I am there as well). If any of this material interests you, please don’t forget to subscribe!

5. Bucket List Publications and 72&Rising have both featured my work! there are links to both their sites in the right bar of my blog. I would encourage you to check them out if you have some time.

6. Other Links – In the side bar to the right there are also links to my YouTube account with has many videos from my life. If you want to see some material that hasn’t made it to my blog, go check that out! There is also a link to, they offer great deals on outdoor gear of all types and the inventory is constantly changing. If you like gear, it is a great site to keep an eye on. You can sign up under me!

7. Did you notice – that this list doesn’t contain a #4? If you did then you win! there is no prize, but at least you can have the satisfaction of being a winner. If you didn’t notice, don’t be heartbroken, the winners didn’t really get anything.
