A 3 day solo hiking trip in Denali National Park. It was the best hiking experience of my life.
A 4-day cabin trip with my dad to Red River Gorge in Slade, Kentucky with my Dad. We went hiking and kayaking and saw some unique geology. Gray’s Arch was the highlight.
Description If you want to carry a lot of stuff while riding your bike long distances, you’d be hard pressed to find a better bike than the Long Haul Trucker. You’d also be hard pressed to find a better sale than this one. The bike is practically brand new. Bought […]
