Black Hills, South Dakota – June 11, 2017

As part of 50 x 50 x 50 (50 hikes in 50 States before 50 years), we headed for the Black Hills of South Dakota in the summer of 2017.  During the trip we hiked both the Flume and Centennial Trails and camped near the dam at Sheridan Lake.  We also had a chance to make a run through Sturgis (home of the annual biker rally) and stay in Deadwood (an 1800’s era gold town that has gambling to this day).       … [Read more...]

Rocky Mountain, North Georgia – December 22, 2018

 This is a video of a December 22, 2018 backpacking trip to Rocky Mountain in North Georgia.  We hiked in a few inches of snow that came down the prior day, but most of it melted as the temps climbed to the low 40's during our hike.  Yonah Mountain can be seen at sunset in the distance.  My 13 year old son gets photo credit for many of the pics. … [Read more...]

White River National Forest – Aspen, Colorado – June 23, 2016

We stayed in an AirB2B house in Aspen, CO and used it as a base camp to explore a number of high alpine lakes in the nearby White River National Forest over a five day period. The scenery was spectacular and I wish we had our backpacks and spent the night in the wilderness - maybe next time. The whitewater rafting was also a blast. Kudos to "Drone Boy" for shooting the aerial footage and for putting this video together. … [Read more...]

Episode 38: Distant North (Kungsleden)

In Episode 38, Theo and Bee give us all a New Years gift and tell us about their adventures on the 273 mile (440 km) Kungsleden Trail in northern Sweden.  The couple has lived out of their VW van for the last three years, but took time off from their travels to hike the Kungsleden in the fall of 2015 and release the film Distant North a year later. Back home in the UK (and from a recently purchased boat), Theo and Bee speak to the logistics of a Kungsleden thru-hike, the arctic weather and … [Read more...]
