Dog days in Thailand and getting grimy in Nepal.

Being a dork at Cascade Crest 100m With David Hughes. I hope this finds everyone well, enjoying the holidays and looking forward to another great year. I’m having fun planning new treks, runs, and climbs on Kilimanjaro and in Nepal. Hope you can join me for an adventure. This year was particularly rich in trail running, especially

Manaslu Mountain Trail Race Report 2013: Literally Bonking

Warning, this post has blood and a weird mixture of bragging and self-deprecating tendencies.  So you might just want to switch to the online photo album instead where it is a little more muted. Bad idea at the end of Deception Pass 50k. When I fail, it is usually with astonishing stupidity. If we forget

Prepping for Manaslu Mtn Race and Trekking to Everest Base Camp

Now that is a mountain. Pic courtesy It is funny you know, how quickly time passes and how memories begin to fade away. But next week should bring new ones. Hopefully ones that stick around. Monday will find me on a bumpy bus ride to the village of Arughat, and by Tuesday I will be

Real time Satelite Tracking with the Delorme SE 2-way communicator

Real-time tracking devices have a lot of features for integration into blog pages and social media platforms. However what works in theory, may not always work in practice. Here I attempt to do various things with the Delorme SE 2-way Communicator. This is not a review on the device so far (which I like a

Too much running: Cascade Crest 100m, Zion, Grand Canyon R2R2R

I’m not sure where to start, or how to weave a coherent story about running 100 miles through the day and night in the Cascades of Washington State, or spending a morning bombing through Zion National Park in Utah. And how can I really put words on finally getting to see (not to mention run)

Mt. Adams: Mashing up an only known time.

Before I get started recapping this pretty crazy adventure from last week, I am happy to say our trip for Everest Base Camp (EBC) this October is full. But we are looking for people who are interested in going to Kilimanjaro in February or EBC in March-April. These are non-technical trips for people of all walks of life.

Running White River 50m 2013

We are still in the witty banter stage, fresh out of the gate and running easy miles through forests rich with moss. Sometimes I engage in the banter, sometimes I let it slide over me, and sometimes I try to block it out. A lot of times the conversations are about whether we’ve run the

From the beaches of Zanzibar to White River

I confess that my knowledge of world geography is pretty limited. I blame it on being a product of the American educational system and the insular perspective that we often have in the states. Fortunately, I have one of the coolest mothers in the world. As a geography teacher and a world traveler, she tried
