This Blog

This blog is dedicated to explorations of spirit, life, adventure, and people. I hope that it encompasses much more than the actions of people, but rather creates a more complete picture of what it means to be an athlete and a person in the outdoor community.

The web

The web. We accumulate little and big experiences and they are all part of what makes us unique. As time goes on we continue to collect the experiences.

But when does the web break? When does it become too much? How do we decide where to draw a line?

Today, I saw a friend pinned under a log and thought "This is it". A death last weekend and a near-miss today and it makes the questions of why and when even more pressing and real. The why is easy to answer, but the when is a matter of chance and preparation.

Why do we kayak?
When will we die?


  1. because we are truly living when we do it

  2. That is very true, i feel it every time I am on the water. The attention that it requires, the feeling of the decisions you make having a real impact on your life, the sense of urgency and depth to your experience. It is all there.
