Hi Robert!

Here’s your weekly dose of hand-picked resources for living a bold and adventurous life.

 

Article I’m reading —
How To Get Un-lost. While using a map and compass can help you find your way in the woods, there are plenty of other ways of using nature to navigate your way out of trouble. This article shows you how to use trees, clouds and the wind to get back on the right path.

 

Video I’m watching —
7 Days Horse Trekking Alone in Mongolia. In the summer of 2019, Eva zu Beck set off into the wilderness of the Mongolian steppe with two horses and documented the journey. While she saw many beautiful places and felt moments of solitude, she doesn’t hide the fact that adventuring alone in remote places comes with a ton of challenges.

 

Infographic I’m sharing —
World’s Highest Mountains, and What Their Names Mean. This is a cool infographic for anyone interested in peaks and the origin of their names.

 

Product I’m loving —
Peak Design Capture 3.0 Clip. When I first started bringing a camera along while hiking, I stopped at any chance to snap a photo. As I started to do longer and more tiring routes, the task of taking off my pack, opening it, taking out the camera, shooting the picture, putting the camera away and then putting the heavy pack back on again was becoming a real pain.

Carrying the camera around my neck also wasn’t practical on trails where there was a lot of scrambling involved. I started relying on my phone which was handy to store in a hip belt pocket, but the quality just wasn’t the same.

While hiking in Costa Rica, I saw a guy who had his camera clipped onto his backpack strap. After doing some research, I came across the Peak Design Capture Clip and ordered it. I’ve been using it for the past two weeks while hiking in Switzerland and love it. It makes it super easy to quickly snap a photo which means I’m taking way more shots than I ever would have if the camera would be in my pack.

 

Quote I’m pondering —
“Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit.” – Edward Abbey

As always, I’d love to hear from you. Which fix above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Let me know! Just hit reply and tell me what you think.

Have a great weekend!
