Trip Report – Hammocks in the Grand Tetons

September 14–18, 2019 The best remedy I can think of for getting past the emotion of dropping off your oldest child to college is heading into the woods.

Hammock Tips on a 50-Miler

This summer I joined my son on a few days of his 50-miler trek up and over the San Francisco Peaks in Northern Arizona. Since I wasn’t able to join him for the whole trek, I was a little lazy in my packing and threw together a kit so I could get up the mountain…
