After our "rest day", in which Esther and I hiked 8 miles with 3,000feet of elevation gain and descent, it was time to hit the trail again - hiking from Rowardennan to Inverarnan. The route says it'll be 14 miles and it's the last section of the trail where my big pack will have baggage … Continue reading WHW – Day 4 (Rowardennan to Inverarnan)
Day 3 on the trail - well, not actually ON the West Highland Way, but on another trail; Ben Lomond. I've been here before in 2018 towards the end of April/beginning of May. From hiking the whole trail this time, I think I got about 3/4ths of the way up the mountain when rain, wind, … Continue reading WHW Day 3 – Rest Day & Ben Lomond
Several times now I've had a bunch of things that come to mind that I want to write about and update you on... and also I want to continue using this site to share experiences since I'm still paying for it! If I don't pay, all my content on here will go away and that … Continue reading #Adulting v2 (Change is the constant and loneliness is possible)
Where am I going? What am I doing?? What is my purpose? Short answer: I wish I knew and I'm still trying to find it out for sure (whatever sure means to me these days -- I think it means a solid working concept towards which I can focus my energy and resources). The new … Continue reading Where Am I Going??

The price was significantly cheaper than the usual rental car companies such a s Hertz, Enterprise, Avis, etc. I was thinking "how is this company so much cheaper." I had reserved a vehicle through RentalCars.com in Queenstown NZ and we got an additional ding … Continue reading Tyndrum, Scotland UK (April 30th – May 3rd, 2018)
Phone Notes - Day 3 March 16: Didnt sleep well at all. The wind, twisting and turning all night, trying to not breath in the fine sand while not breathing my carbon dioxide in the sleeping bag. It started getting light out and realized it was raining. Not just a vertical rain but angular rain … Continue reading Tongariro Northern Circuit Day 3 and 4 (March 16th and 17th, 2017)
Yes, I put those dates in the headline on purpose. Yes, I know I'm getting a little bit ahead of myself but that's ok. So, since February 1st, I've been living with a middle-aged woman in Taupo helping her around the house. It's called woofing (working in exchange for accommodation and in some cases some … Continue reading Taupo HelpX & Onward Travel Planning (February 1st – 20th, 2018)
I think I'll start each day-post of our multi-day tramping trip with sharing some notes that I wrote on my phone while doing the track. Side note: I know the font (at least in my editing mode) is different in this post. Unfortunately, WordPress is not very word-processing friendly and so I have no idea … Continue reading Greenstone Track Day One – Car park to Greenstone Hut (January 2nd, 2018)
