          There are certain dreams and experiences that set themselves apart from the rest.  They are either more difficult or expensive to achieve or they are just so big that they never feel achievable.  My dream of going to Alaska was all of  these.  Alaska, fo​r ge...

  A few days after St. Helens, the weather once again lined up for another PNW summit.  I would be meeting up once again with my good friend and ski guru, Asit Rathod for a day on Mt. Hood.  I was so pumped to have two summit bids in one week.  I cleaned and prepped al...

  Although it isn’t a new concept, I have been thinking a long time about starting the Ring of Fire tour.  This is the term affectionately given to climbing all of the major Cascade volcanos.  From Shasta in California to Garibaldi in British Columbia, Canada.  I woul...

  It’s funny the way some adventures start and end.  I actually like to think that they never really end; they just continue on forever with short intermissions.  This one began a few months ago in the Beijing airport when I met a climber by the name of Brad...

  Several months ago, I reconnected with an old friend from high school.  Mike Hurd and I weren’t terribly close in school, but a couple decades later, this glorious thing called the interweb and the great Facebook machine brought us back together.  It started with ju...

  I try to make a trip to a local BASE exit at least once or twice a week. Weather, work, school and family certainly “get in the way” or at least make it difficult from time to time, but I usually manage in one way or another.  One of my favorite local spots is about...

  There are people that come along every so often and completely change your perspective on humans and life.  Kenyon Salo is one of those people.  We met through a combination of mutual friends and social media.  Another O.G. of BASE jumping that I watched in videos ye...
