Trophy Wife

Anyone in some other country beside the USA wanna marry me real quick next year? Latergram taken by Firecracker May 2016 at the cold cold Grand Canyon north rim. Please read the puppysfeministrant tag to see what sexist bullshit happened to me in one day after hiking 700 miles solo backcountry over Utah and Arizona…. continue reading

Dry Lake Sand Storm

After. (1hr, 20min after the previous IG shot was taken) (And I do like how y’all seem to prefer scenes of seeming destruction over rainbows!)

Dry Lake Rainbow

The wind was getting really intense on the highway and blowing my van off the road especially when a semi would pass, so I followed the rainbow here. It’s cold, blustery, and raining. Time for a soak (and some new shocks and springs)!

Scorpion Scare

144 miles on my new 2.2L Wasserboxer engine – so far, so good! Stopped in the gas station in Independence on 395 and this really caught my eye. I call it immersion therapy for “scorpion-phobia.” (Arachnophobia to be precise, since scorpions are arachnids, but I’m not scared at all of spiders.) I made a tag… continue reading

Sand Collection

Going through photos from my Spring 2016 900-mile hike over the Colorado Plateau. I really liked their sand collection at Coral Pink, with bottles from all over the world. Like spices.

Hiding out on the Owens River, getting ready for a much-needed and super rare NAP. Chief Pete doesn’t know it yet but we’re about to do some off-roading (it went fairly well). I’m breaking in the engine carefully, and still have some minor issues to sort out, like how the **ck I’m supposed to fit… continue reading

Abram’s Descent

Abram (abramwashere.com) descends White Mountain a little more carefully with a borrowed bike and helmet. I invited him the day before and he pulled gear together despite being couch-surfing in a new town; I was able to borrow a 4×4 truck – pretty incredible luck of ours. You can see the summit hut up high… continue reading

View of the Sierra Nevada and some of its last struggling glaciers from the White Mountain range summit 4×4 road.

There’s a road all the way to the summit of White Mountain (14,246ft), which makes it by far the easiest 14er summit in California (or perhaps anywhere in the USA). From what I understand, once a year the final 7 miles of chunky road even opens for the general public to drive past the gate!… continue reading

Paint Your Wagon

This guy. Hiker “Paint Your Wagon.” If you’ve been on the Pacific Crest Trail the past four years you’ve probably met him. I met him when we both worked Ziggy and the Bear’s in 2014. He’s always upbeat, a hard worker, and has a really hard time finding hiking shoes for his size 17 feet…. continue reading
