Kelsey, my dog, or was my dog as she died a few years ago, was my favorite travel companion. She never complained, other then when she needed to find a bush to squat on. She always went with the flow, she didn't care where the car ended up as long as she could go exploring and get her little bushy tail wagging. She did not bring along a ton of gear. All she needed was her leash, a blanket to lay on (depending on the terrain), a bowl for water...[More]

Close your eyes and relax... take a few deep breaths … open your mind... come do it, this will help you understand the concepts in this post...How often have you heard, the way to great achievements is by going “up” stream, go “up” the mountain, or even “up” the road. Why does is it “up”? This is just plain wrong, but before I explain why, let me explain what the “stream” is as explained by Abraham Hicks.The “stream” is made of all our thoughts and the actions we take. The...[More]

On a journey to 50 national parks in 217 days, unexpected things happen.Scenery of awesome proportions. Astonishing wildlife. Delightful food. Big slices of American history.But perhaps the best of the unexpected is the people we meet. The ones who arrive out-of-the-blue to encourage us. Who suddenly show up to brighten our day with stories about their own adventures. Their own challenges. Their own dreams.We learn a lot from the people “out there.” They range from a weekend getaway-ers to full-timers, living a stress-free life of freedom and fun. And everything...[More]

The best way to stay warm while camping is the layer system. In a nut shell this means wearing say a t-shirt, then a sweatshirt, then a jacket and finally a vest. If you get to hot you can easily shed a layer. Also watch your sweating, as the moisture from the sweat will make your clothes wet and actually cause you to be colder. What follows is a video from NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) about the layering system.You can follow the discussion on the NOLS website at http://nols.blogs.com/nols_news/2010/02/continuing-the-layering-system-discussion.html...[More]

Did you know that you can visit Las Vegas without going to the strip? Did you know there is a lot more to do in Sin City than gambling and seeing the shows?Lodging wise, if you plan to stay in a hotel, stay in a off strip casino, which are generally well maintained and cheaper then non-casino properties. A few recommendations of such properties include: Station Casinos, Sams Town and Silverton.If you desire to camp, there are a number of great campgrounds in and near the city. Many of the...[More]

A Moment to Think: 1st Principle Sometime ago I made a suggestion of a book to have with you to engage during your moments to think. I have also been reading this book, and having quite an experience of furthering my “self-discovery” by the exploration of the 17 Principles of Success. These principles is not about budgeting, loan rates, or anything like that, but is more about the investment of yourself in the understanding of the world around you being the manifestation of your subconscious mind. During the next...[More]

This post is going to talk about the 10 knots every camper should know. You will see the knot in the photo, reference its name and read what that knot is used for. This post is more about understanding the uses of the knot then how to tie it. I find learning to tie a knot is more a hands on kind of thing. 1.Overhand - This is probably a pretty good place to begin to learn tying knots, since it is really just giving a name to something you...[More]

Last week I wrote about the Pineal Gland in our brains and the chemical compound that is identified as DMT, which is produced by this Gland. Last week’s post was a lot of information, this I understand, as inspiration takes hold of me I just go with the flow. When I write it feels as if there is a craving that someone (may be you) has that needs be satisfied, with this being the way to answer that need. Therefore, to satisfy this need, here are a few more thoughts...[More]

A little while ago, I wrote a post about meditating For_All_RoadCeos_Who_Are_Spiritually_at_Heart.html , and being able to bring the Sensations of being outdoors back the jungle we call the city. I say the jungle, because there is still the matter of using different sets of survival skills in order to stay alive; people take for granted living in the city by ignoring the constant threats to your well being. Naturally the bigger the city the more risk there is to you. Now this blog is not about surviving in...[More]

Sierra cups are a amazing tool for light weight camping. As you can see in the photo they are really just a metal cup. However in backpacking it serves as your cup, bowl and plate. They are light weight and easy to clean. They are also pretty durable so they will take the abuse the boys dish out. The two shown in this picture are, I would venture to guess, around 20 years old. There is one con, they are metal so they can get hot or cold depending not...[More]

During the brainstorming of this blog, I was trying to think of a different way to talk about First Aid kits, because in truth it can be a very boring subject for most folks. Well it was Monday night that something happens, and it is here that I will tell you about it. As I do this, keep in mind of your first aid kit as well as the contents inside of it, for the folks who do not have one then I...[More]

When using a public campground, a tuba placed on your picnic table will keep the campsites on either side vacant.Get even with a bear who raided your food bag by kicking his favorite stump apart and eating all the ants.Old socks can be made into high fiber beef jerky by smoking them over an open fire.When smoking a fish, never inhale.A hot rock placed in your sleeping bag will keep your feet warm. A hot enchilada works almost as well, but the cheese sticks between your toes.The best backpacks are...[More]

This is an awesome steel leaf type rake. It is pretty light, and folds down to a small size. The rake prongs collapses inward (as in the second photo) and the handle slides into itself. The rake part folds in by lifting a small black leaver that allows it to slide down the pole, making it shorter and at same time bring the prongs together. The handle, shortens simply by twisting the handle to unlock it and then it slides into itself.The rake itself is pretty cheap. I got this...[More]
