Deleting Facebook Never Felt So Good

So the time has come, I’ve wanted to do it for a long time but for some reason I could never pull the trigger. I secretly hated Facebook for so long but I seemed to return to it, day after day, never missing a day. Sometimes I was on Facebook many times a day on several different devices. I’d wake up, check my phone. Lunchtime,...

Rickshaw Run Wrap Up

I have been so lazy about blogging that I didn’t write anything during our crazy adventure of racing a tuk tuk across India.  The Rickshaw Run was no holiday, I’ll tell you that.  We picked up a tuk tuk in Jaisalmer India and then beat it over the “roads” all the way to Kochi.  We didn’t take the most direct route either, we meandered inland...

Making The Decision To Build A Tiny Home

My time flying in Africa is coming to an end and now I have to figure out what my next “adventure” is.  I am at a time in my life where I want to be free.  Free of things, free to spend my time as I wish, free of the anchor of a mortgage.  I want to be able to take months to go on...

I have a beautiful tent in the Chyulu Hills of Kenya equipped with a beautiful log desk and yet I haven’t sat down an done my blogging in quite some time. I am going to greatly reduce the amount of time I spend on social media and...

Kilimanjaro Attempt Getting Close

Hiking up Mt. Kilimanjaro, I’m not completely sure what I was thinking when I signed up, but there’s no turning back now.  With preparations finalized we brought our fearless guide Victor out to camp to discuss all of the details of the hike.  Victor did a great job making it sound easier than it is going to be, “day three we’ll go up a bit and...

Mental Preparation

As the trek up Mt. Kilimanjaro gets closer and closer, I have shifted some of my physical training to mental training.  The more I read, the more I understand how critical it is to be as mentally prepared for the adventure as it is to be physically prepared.  Some of my mental preparation has included walking up the hills 5 miles, walking back to camp...

Kilimanjaro Prep Equals Rogue Beer

Kilimanjaro prep continues, my very precious cargo arrived safely from the United States.  Packed every so carefully by my buddy Josh, who wrapped each bottle of beer in bubble wrap and gave them each their own ziplock bag.  As I started planning for my expedition up Kilimanjaro, I started thinking of items that would help motivate me to reach the summit.  Then it struck me,...

Fitbit HR Review

First off let me say, if you have an addictive personality, this device is dangerous.  I have been wearing my Fitbit HR for about 6 weeks now and I’m sore as hell.  I can’t stop walking, yesterday I walked for over 7 hours, trying to attain a new “step” record or some new virtual badge.  I’m not sure if this thing is healthy for me...

Hiking Companions In Kenya

I have been doing a lot of solo hiking in the Chyulu Hills of Kenya recently.  I mean a lot, like 270 miles in the last month, almost every mile by myself.  Or so I once thought.  As it turns out, I’m never hiking alone, I’m surrounded by hiking companions.  The more time I spend hiking around the Chyulu Hills, the more I realize I’m...

March 23rd and my first Kilimanjaro Post

It’s been months since my last blog post.  The flying in Kenya has been great, sometimes monotonous, but always beautiful.  This thread of blog posts is not going to be about flying at all.  As the title gives away, I’m going to be hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro in June 2016 and I thought it would be a good idea to chat about it along the...

Land Rover Off Road In The Chyulu Hills

Decided to take the land rover out to do a little exploring of the Chyulu Hills.  I had no idea where I was going to end up, but I really wanted to hike up one of the hills so I pointed the land rover towards the hills and drove until I couldn’t go any further.  The drive was beautiful, the hills are turning green from...

Chyulu Fun Flight Kenya Bush Flying

I’m finally getting to see my first rainy season in Eastern Kenya.  The rains are upon us, though a bit late, and the land is beginning to turn emerald green.  We decided to take the flying giraffe out to get a good view of our seasonal rivers and flood plains.  It was a beautiful flight, all conducted within 20 miles of Campi Ya Kanzi, this...
