Just a quick little ~2 mile day hike and paddle on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with awesome views of the Franconia ridgeline :)
We missed seeing a moose by like, 10 mins >:\
The Boundary Waters

Buds vs Wild!!!
In mid August I flew into Wisconsin to meet up with my great pal Eric for a week long canoe paddle and fishing trip on Sea Gull lake in the Boundary waters of Minnesota. We had sorta crummy weather the whole time, only caught two fish, fought really hard wind and 2-3ft choppy water on a 12 mile row, saw a bald eagle, listened to Loons at night, saw a black bear swimming not 20 yards off our bow and pretty much had the time of our lives haha :D
Q:Hey, just stumbled across your blog and I wanted to say it's really nice to see someone posting White Mountains stuff, that place is like a second home to me and it's great to see it some here ^.^
That’s great man! I’m glad you’re enjoying :) The White Mts are amazing. If they are a second home to you than you’re one lucky fella!
Q:I love looking at all your posts. How do you afford your adventures?
Hey thanks so much! I am happy you like them and are taggin along :)
Hahaha, that is a great question… the main reason is that my gf is a traveling nurse and they house us in the different places we go. Not paying rent is the TOPS! I do have a job though, I do graphic design work from home… But as long as you aren’t a gear addict like I am, enjoying the outdoors is pretty inexpensive! :)
Off to White Mt National Forest
See you kids Monday!
If you’re like me, you’re obsessed with gear and the love of your life says you’re “out of your mind, you couldn’t possibly need anything else” because you’re likely putting some gear manufacture’s kid through college, you will think this site is awesome! :)
There are a lot of really good deals for some really good loot on this site! Happy gear hoarding! :)
BUDS vs WILD: Boundary Waters 2014!!!
Just booked my flight to meet one of my good pals out in Wisconson and head up to the famous boundary waters in late August! I’m stoked beyond words! :D
White Mt Natl Forest
The initial plan was to hike up to the Bond cliffs and scratch out a camp in the Pemigewasset Wilderness but after speaking with a Ranger about a precarious river crossing, certain parties were too chicken :P
So, instead the plan was modified and we hiked along the Pemigewasset river, up and over the mountainside on an old railroad line keeping eyes peeled for a cool place to camp out overnight… and boy did we! It took a little bushwhacking and some severe mosquito swatting to find, but there was a perfect flat smack of sand along a rocky river bank complete with one heck of a camp kitchen, which are always awesome! :D
To be truthful, it was a pretty lackluster hike in and while the river was really pretty, not very scenic… but then also, it didn’t need to be! It was a great time to be outside enjoying the deep woods!

It was terribly tragic to have to leave that beautiful island. On the last day we decided the best way to take in the coastline was to cruise 8-)
We ended up pedaling southbound for 12 miles along the coast back to Jordan Pond. That is some really spectacular coastline. The emerald green and froathy water crashing against the reddish/orange rocks was hard to believe natural. It was easy to sit and stare at it for a long time and not notice 15-20 mins passing…
