I have done more than a few wilderness canoe (and hiking) trips over the past 20 years and my experience has given me some insight that could benefit other aspiring explorers or even a later version of myself.
I would like to take a moment to to wish all my friends and readers a very happy Christmas and even more delightful New Year! I guarantee that you will have a better time in 2020 than I was in the photo headlining this post. Bushwhacking through a recent burn with a canoe on your head is a guaranteed way to make you question your life choices. But doing such idiotic things is much more enjoyable when your 20 year […]
Kudos to the MANY weekend warrior hacks like myself who may not exude much “stoke” but we definitely DO exude “life” – and more than just our own.

Welcome to my new and hopefully somewhat improved website. The intent of this site is to combine the best of my photography and my trip reports.
I have a bit of a thing for meteors for some reason, and I’ve tried capturing photos of them before. The last time I made any real effort was a bit of a bust.

Buddha says that most of life’s suffering is caused by an endless cycle of human craving for impermanent things and states of being, which is dukkha – incapable of satisfying and painful. By trapping ourselves in this continuous state of craving things that don’t last, we are caught in an endless cycle of rebirth, dukkha and dying, or samsara. Only by attaining nirvana can we be liberated from this path of suffering.
