What does it mean to have a life well lived? The first American who climbed Everest has one take on it. He made it to the top despite having run out of oxygen, a testament to his simple but forceful observation that “risk is really important to life.”
I love this video so hard. Jim Whittaker and I would get on nicely, I think. (Reminds me this post on the blog: http://3upadventures.com/invincible-thats-point/. Although Jim was more eloquent.) Think he would meet up with me when I’m in Seattle some time?
We’ve spent a few days hanging out at a friends cabin on Haigler Creek just north of Young, Arizona.
So true. You steal our hearts fuzzy ones.

On the #hikerchat adventure during Summer Outdoor Retailer Show, Forrest and I both got a Teton Sports Summit 1500 to test out. My old Jansport was too bulky to for a comfortable all day mountain pack (and it was reaching the end of it’s life) so I’d been in the market for a new daypack. It wasn’t long before I was more than happy to adopt the Summit 1500 as my go-to pack.
