Family Vagabonding

Do children get in the way of traveling?

I know single guys or childless couples adventure into “vagabonding.” Most sane people abandon the idea once kids enter the picture. Not me. And Wendy and I are returning to some of our more radical ideas of our younger years.

Hammock Hunting

The best lightweight, DIY solution to staying warm in the mountains

My son Micah and I decided to spike three miles into the national forest to bow hunt this year. This required loading up pounds and pounds of gear, much of it to stay warm.

It will be difficult to beat this picture, the best so far of our trip to beautiful Australia. This was taken at sunrise, approximately 7:45 a.m. (iPhone 6, no enhancements, panorama shot)

Valentine’s Day Rock

Happy 2015 Valentine’s Day! Check out these pictures Wendy and I took on a hike yesterday. I’d like to share with you where our hearts are at the moment. I hope it touches yours.

Palmer Lake Reservoirs

It wasn’t so much of a cold spell in Colorado at the turn of the year, but it was perfect for this steady climb to the Palmer Lake Reservoirs.  Palmer Lake is the neighboring town from where we live, and we have the perfect idea to cap off a nice hike if you’re ever in the area.

Palmer Lake Reservors is a brisk walk to beautiful mountain scenery.
