Tools for Grassroots Activists
While it might seem that a major corporation has no business writing a manual for grassroots environmental activists, Patagonia has done just that. The brand has been at the forefront of environmental stewardship within the outdoor industry for decades, and for 20 years, they’ve hosted the semi-annual Tools Conference, which pairs activism experts...
FuelBelt, Helium 2-Bottle Custom Fit
Staying hydrated on the trail isn't easy, especially in drier ranges like the Bridgers. And since I've been training for some longer distance runs this summer, I've needed to carry water. Now, a pack is fine for a few miles, but when I'm out for two or more hours, I need something lightweight, so I got a Helium Custom Fit 2-Bottle belt from...

Lessons from the Jim Bridger Run. At the end of June, I raced in the Jim Bridger Trail Run. This was my second year in a row and a great test to see how my new Ridge Run training program with Swiss Fit Montana was working out. The run starts at the Sypes trailhead, runs across private land and up the Middle Cottonwood trail, and then back to Sypes...
Basic equine safety. One of the prettiest ways to see Montana is from the back of a horse – there's time to take in the views, stop and relax, and cover lots of ground without loud motors. With summer trail-riding upon us, and hunting season coming up, it’s extremely important to put safety first. Now, full disclosure: I'm not a trainer or expert...
An unorthodox excursion at Ousel. On Friday night, I sat at a friend's house sipping drinks when a longtime buddy walked in. I hadn’t seen Dylan since winter, and even then it was only for a day.
