A look back – 2006 cross country Road Trip Day 2

This is the second day of a cross country road trip from Arizona to Missouri that my brother and I took in 2006. I flew out to Arizona where he was going to school and we hiked. camped, and toured the whole way home. Visiting as many National Parks, State Parks, and places of interest on the way.

The states we traveled through were Arizona Utah Colorado New Mexico Kansas and Missouri. The total distance traveled was 1,446.6 miles. These videos are a time-lapse of the almost 1500 miles. In those almost 1500 miles we traveled through the following national parks and monuments: Grand Canyon, Zion, Coral Reef, Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, Canyon Lands, Arches, Four Corners and Mesa Verde.

Tell it on the Mountan PCT Documentary Review and Giveaway

I have watched the Tell it on the Mountain PCT documentary several times now and I enjoy it every time. It follows a half a dozen hikers as they traverse the Pacific Crest Trail that starts at the Mexican border and runs 2,663 miles to the Canadian border.  The journey lasts from April to October and requires hikers to hike on average 20 miles per day.  If you wish to know what life really is like then this is a must watch.  This film provides a fantastic behind the scenes look at the ups and downs of the trail. Everything from the peaks of happiness to the lows of having to leave he trail.

The fine folks at Tell it on the Mountain have given us a DVD and a Digital Download to giveaway.  To enter simply use the widgets below. Happy Trails and Good luck. To learn more about the movie please visit their website.

Nite Ize GearLine Organization System – Gear Review

GearLineThe Nite Ize Gear Line Organization System is a light weight creative way to keep things organized.  I have found them useful for keeping things organized in my tent hanging it from the loops at the top of the tent where a gear loft might attach. I find it useful to keep my glasses and other important items off the tent floor. They are also super hand to hang pretty much anything anywhere. In your vehicle, garage, house, and so many more places. The possibilities are endless.

The GearLine Organization System is made of high quality, wear-resistant webbing, the Gear Line Organization System features sturdy S-Biner double-gated carabiner clips in alternating sizes, each attached to its own individual sturdy loop, along with Gear Tie Reusable Twist Ties on each end.
