Craig and I with the Flatiron looming behind us.

A month ago my friend Craig stopped at my house in Phoenix on his road trip across the US. His second day there he looked at me and said, “I want to go on a hike, and I don’t care how hard it is.” Well I looked right at him and said “I’ve got just the hike for you.” (with a devilish grin) The next morning we…

Summer On The Wisconsin River

Sorry I'm posting this a little late, but I've been a busy man! After spending the summer back in the Mid-West (which was nostalgic, and only short term) I'm living out in Phoenix, Arizona and I'm working as a contracted guide for 5 different companies. Desert Voyagers (rafting), Just Roughin It (backpacking, hiking, kayaking), Arizona Outback Adventures (mountain biking, hiking, kayaking) 360 Adventures (Canyoneering, Mountain Biking, Hiking), and Hike In Phoenix (hiking). If you like this… Continue

Insight on the seasonal world Part II

I love starting a new seasonal job and meeting all these new people....these new people who will be your friends, family, travel buddies, and maybe even lovers for the rest of this season...and probably your life. Some people have seen WAY more than you have and will be eager to share their experiences with you....and for some this will be their first time away from home and they will be soaking up everything you have to say like a roll of Bounty.

You also get the opportunity to live in a… Continue

Living "intents" at ACE Outdoor Adventure Center, WV

About a month ago I packed everything that I thought I would need to camp for 8 months into and onto my backpack and once again, I knew I was headed in the right direction....away. ACE is an outdoor adventure center where there is over 1400 acres of property to explore, you can ride ATVs, horses, mountain bikes, zip lines, kayaks, rafts, duckies, go mountain climbing, take a swim at the lake, drink at the bar, meet tons of great people, and so much more! It is also where I am training to become… Continue

What I went through to start the seasonal world.....

I've been traveling for almost four years now and it seems that on every journey I take, I meet someone that's brand new to this type of life. I usually try to give that person as many tips as possible and try to make their first time an experience they won't forget. And every time I meet someone like this I think about my first time leaving home and why I really got into doing this.

As I've said before my family owned a campground when I was growing up so I was lucky enough to have… Continue

A little note with some tips and a big thank you to cool works!

Hi my name is Dallas and I want to start off by saying thank you very much to cool works and all the people who work so hard helping all of us pursue our dreams. I found out about cool works almost 4 years ago and it opened up my eyes to all the things that are possible if you just take your life in your own hands. It is true about what they say about traveling.....a lot of people just wont understand what your doing. Even if your path is so clear to you, it may be next to impossible to convey… Continue

Let me tell you about my move to The Big Island, Hawaii

So I’ve got a little tale to tell you and it starts in California…….I was working at Stanford Sierra Conference Center in South Lake Tahoe and the fall season was almost up. I was dating someone at the time and we were discussing where to spend the winter. She almost had me convinced to stay in Tahoe and spend the winter snowboarding until she made the mistake of uttering the word “Hawaii” in too close of range! We talked long and hard about it for a week and finally decided to just buy the… Continue
