Gobble Gobble, Bitches….Yeah!

An Introduction to the Highlining Community I mean, look….was this highline gathering the coolest thing I’ve ever seen? I think perhaps, yes. Yes, it was..How does one explain highlining? I guess we gotta start with slacklining first. Slacklining is a strange and unique sport. It looks like tight rope walking, and I suppose that’s whatContinue reading “Gobble Gobble, Bitches….Yeah!”

A Very Wet Pacific Northwest Experience September 2018 Oh, hey there Oregon. Over the last few days, I took a short trip to Mount Hood to hike the Timberline Trail. The Timberline Trail is only a mere 40 miles long, circumnavigating the iconic Mt. Hood, just outside of Portland. It’s not a super easy one,Continue reading “Mt Hood: The Timberline Trail”
