NEW ZEALAND | Wed, 18 Mar 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [333]

"Well, this is some nice, flat, forest walking," I muse. "Yeah, it can't last forever," Dad responded quickly, like we'd been having the same thoughts. We knew a mountain summit was in today's section of the 3-day, 30-kilometer hike we'd started, ... Read more >

Trekking Poles Will Make Your Life Better... And Your Triceps Sexier.

CHILE | Fri, 6 Mar 2015 | By thehappytalent | Views [75]

WORLDWIDE | Fri, 16 May 2014 | By goingsolo | Views [177]
