I am thankful for this stinky nugget ( and Mr.Bo of course) every single day of my life! 🐶 It certainly does not look like this outside right now, I say this as we sit inside our RV in the pouring rain. Hoping for some clear skies over there next 2 weeks. We want to get out and see the fall colors, before heading back out west! @puremichigan@traversecitytourism@nulopetfood
Eating a lot of tater tots as my reward was my only motivation to send this problem. Unfortunately, Burger Barn was not open so I didn't get any tater tots 😭💔. I got my send but I didn't get my food. Twas a tragic day.
Wednesday wisdom: only post waterfalls, shirtless selfies, lavish travel lifestyle shots and hustle culture quotes to maintain engagement and keep a false sense of self alive and well. Get that dopamine hit. Let’s get this privileged bread, y’all! 💩
The fall colors are starting to kick into high gear here in Germany even though it's been raining almost 3 weeks straight now. So here's a Pic from last year in Oregon. Are you Going anywhere to check out the fall foliage?
This is one of my favorite pictures I took this summer. Sitting watching the sunsets and the amazing colors that lit up the sky was so relaxing.
On vacation there was no rush to be anywhere. To do anything. It was so nice for a change just to “be” and not worry about work or commuting or any of the other hundreds of things that seem to go on all at once. Just “being” can be tough with all of life’s obligations, but striving for Financial Independence can help to make that much more of a reality when your obligations can noticeably drop! (Depending on your personal situation of course)

Blue Ridge Parkway day two started with a sunrise breakfast, sprinkled with some amazing views and ended with a visit to @blueridgehikingco
On Oct. 16, the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) is celebrating World Spine Day - a worldwide initiative organized by the World Federation of Chiropractic - to raise awareness of back pain and other spinal issues. We're encouraging all Canadians to manage back and neck pain through movement and exercise, using this year's theme #GetSpineActive .
More than 11 million Canadians suffer from a condition related to the spine, muscle and nervous system that affects their movement each year. These conditions are having a devastating impact on Canadians' health and quality of life.
Chiropractors are an integral part of the solution to address this growing epidemic. Every year, 4.5 million Canadians rely on services offered by chiropractors to prevent and manage the serious burden of MSK pain and diseases. Why? Because chiropractic care is drug free, non-invasive, and preventative.
Chiropractors keep Canadians moving.
The Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) represents over 9,000 licensed Doctors of Chiropractic and 10 provincial chiropractic associations in Canada. Together, we strive to provide Canadians with up-to-date information on the practice of chiropractic in Canada as well as public education on spine, muscle, and nervous system health and how our experts can help keep you moving.
I’ve seen @katetempest 3 times now and every time I’ve been totally mesmerised. The intensity of her live performance takes me my storm and in the current shitshow that is humanity right now, we can all learn from her words.
"They took my saddle in Houston, broke my leg in Santa Fe, lost my wife and a girlfriend, somewhere along the way..

Everything that I've got, is just what I've got on.
I ain't got a dime, but what I got is mine, I ain't rich, but Lord I'm free..."

I thought training in Bali would be easy, boy was I wrong. Sweat box city over here 🤦🏼♂️
I was invited to join @project16x at the High Camp Hut in the San Juan Mountains. It was described as "One part leadership summit. One part industry networking. One part advocate assembly". There were workshops on a variety of skills, I taught one on light painting that had everyone running around in the dark with lights and laughing. I also really enjoyed making prints with @mountainmargo. We had tough discussions, shared stories and discussed issues in the outdoor industry. .
The hut was at 11,000 feet, and the elevation and cold were a struggle for this desert rat. One day we did a hike up to a beautiful meadow with tiny lakes. I got to see Marmots and fell in love with the squeaky rock-dwelling Pika.
Thanks to @boldbrew for bringing us together, and to sponsors @otterbox, @fjallraven, @sherpaadventuregear and @hokaoneone. Photos 2, 8 and 9 by @kevasey

I went to a writing group tonight for the first time. Something I have been wanting to do but timid about initiating. Luckily my beautiful best friend @thedorkpoet invited me to join one and the timing worked out.
The activity was to write on opposite sides of a concept with a partner and my partner and I got Spring vs Fall.
This is a topic that gave me pause, for the seasons I spend a lot of time thinking about are in fact, summer and winter.
I often spend the entire winter and spring anticipating summer and the entire summer dreading its end. A funny cycle that I have found myself in.
But here are a few words about spring:
To spring is to leap, to jump, to bounce
To spring forth with a newness, an innocence
The flower unfolds each petal
It turns its face up to the sun
The life giver, the source
It shows its color, it’s beauty
The flower doesn’t know of the cold that came before
It doesn’t know of the shortness of its own life
Each year, I have an opportunity to be new again
To spring forth as if I don’t know about the inevitable fall
Walking in to the visitor center at Olympic National Park, I see a quote by Teddy Roosevelt written on the wall:
“There are no words that can tell the hidden spirit of the wilderness”
The quote perfectly describes the feelings I got while exploring Olympic NP. A diverse ecosystem ranging from beaches to rain forests to snow capped mtns, rich native history, and a drizzly fog at sunrise making you wonder about the parks mysteries 🎃
Love this advice that PTR member @brieoutside shared on the Facebook group about climbing with her little! Thanks for sharing with us! . . . . . “Here a little guide technique hack that I’ve found works really good.
I find it so much better to climb together with my two year old rather than just sending him up the wall. I tie him in with a clove hitch on a butterfly bight just above head level. When we climb I can reach up to point out holds or down to move a foot or give him a big hug if he gets nervous. When lowering, he can walk down but can’t fall against the rock due to the tension from me below. It works really well. He loves that part. I also give him reward stimulus by hiding acorns at intervals on handholds or in the cracks. He loves finding them and making me put them in my pockets.”

Totally forgot to post this photo from the weekend! I spent Saturday and Sunday driving around Oregon with my girl @katie.hikes to help her with a project she’s working on which mostly had me painting in beautiful places and got me re-inspired! I love friendships that involve mutual support of artistic pursuits and I love chasing this passion.

Our family vacation was amazing! It’s always an awesome refresh for the mind and soul 😍😍
What a week we had in Peru! We mountain biked through some tiny towns, on Incan trails, and past Incan ruins and salt mines. We dodged barking dogs, petted a lot of sweet dogs, and resisted petting a lot of llamas, alpacas, pigs, donkeys, lambs and sheep 😁. We saw a lot of people celebrating life, having festivals in the streets of their towns, met a lot of adorable Peruvian children wanting chocolate, and tried not to spend all our Soles on soft textiles.
Then, we saw the almighty Machu Picchu - and wow that place is pretty spectacular.
A lot of delicious food was eaten, Pisco sours drunken, and bites of Guinea pig tasted! We traveled by planes, trains, buses, vans, taxis and bikes, soaked in hot springs and were served the fanciest camping meals you’ve ever seen.
As usual, the photos don’t do it justice. It was quite the tour showing us what life is like in Peru!
GOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL☀️
Let’s get started with this new #SelfCareSunday series!
Sunday’s are very important to me. I try use them as a time to reflect, find comfort & peace, then reset. A new beginning. A new hope!
Everyday is not easy for any of us, but I do my damn best to make the most of everything I can. If you’re looking for some things to help you in this area, a little pick-me-up, or maybe just some change, well, that’s what this series is for.
I’m going to share little things that I like to do or will try/find (seriously, I’m gonna do this with you) in order to create some peace. A piece of mind for peace of mind.
This Sunday morning for me:
• Wake up with the sunrise
• Get outside & appreciate how the sun illuminates the world & the fact I’m lucky enough to see it
• Turn on some good, chill tunes & bust out the yoga mat. Get some good stretching/breathing in. Take your time.
• Entry in gratitude journal:
“Things I Like To Daydream About”
• Set intentions for the day/coming week with a positive mindset moving forward. Say, “Good things are coming.”
• Look back on beginning of the week & compare to now; how did I feel then as opposed to now? How do I plan to improve myself? What do I want to give back?
Feel free to join me in any/all of this & PLEASE tell me (whether in a message or the comments below) how it made you feel, what you think, what you want to get better at, how your week was, etc. All your thoughts are welcomed, acknowledged, & appreciated here.
Let’s help each other make the most of this crazy, beautiful life while finding our truth & meeting ourselves with open, loving arms & hearts! Wishing you an honest, lovely day and week ahead! ❤️
I was under the weather the last few days. Tired but not able to sleep. Coughing, tossing, and turning. And despite living in the always tired, sleep later culture that we do — it’s not that common for me. I take care of myself. I sleep well. Eat well. I’m not usually sick or tired.
There’s a passage in a book that I think about often. The author recounts his story in a hospital with what he thinks is food poisoning. He is outside of his country and asking for anti-nausea medication.
The doctor tells him something interesting. He says, “You need your nausea. It’s a message. We must listen to the message. It will tell us what’s wrong with you.” I reread that a couple times. We need our _______. It’s a message.
So often I try to mask feelings. Fix them. Physical or emotional. Instead of just listening. Letting them lead me into myself instead of further away. This weekend I took time to rest. To let go of expectation and my big plans. Just rest. Because it’s all a message. And I’m trying to listen more.

She was always amazed by the power of the mind, nothing held her back her as much as self-doubt, while nothing propelled her forward as fiercely as self-confidence. @errincasa in Peru

Rainfly-free camping szn is coming to a close. I didn’t camp this summer nearly as often and I would have liked to, maybe I’ll try and fit some cold weather camping in before the snow hits 🤷♀️🏔

I got the opportunity to be a part of the @mammothphotofest this past weekend. Being in front of the camera for some of my favorite photographers in the industry inspired me to want to pick up my camera again. The experience was unreal! Sunrise at the boulders, soft light, and a bunch of awesome people. Thanks @christianpondella for putting on this event and @sav.cummins for some awesome shots!

Last week my class was solving equations. Another hand went up. The same question I’d gotten all day: I keep getting zero, does that mean theres no solution?
Zero is a number, I replied. Their faces turn from confusion to some acceptance. I guess so, they answer and turn away.
Zero is a number. The absence of something — it changes things.
I was sitting by the lake at my parents house. Listening to the silence. It had a sound. I even made a list.
The breeze in the trees, acorns falling on the grass, lawnmower in the distance, wind chimes on the deck, I heard the squirrels bounding up and down the tall trees, and the fish splashing on the surface.
Silence has a sound. Zero is a number. The absence of one thing leaves room for another. And I want to get better at listening.
