The positive of using a mason jar as a mug: you can add a lid and boom, to-go cup. The negative: zero molten hot liquid to metacarpal protection. The solution: no, it’s not going out and buying a gadget to add a handle to your jar (put your money towards something better, say, a new pair of winter boots). Our solution: a fresh pair of socks. Rather, a single sock. Start with a clean one. Maybe one who has lost its partner. Better yet, a fresh pair. Best yet, this palm tree pair from Stance. Clip off the bottom of the sock, or fold the excess under for a less permanent solution.

Wilfred Peterson wrote one of my favorite quotes: “Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.”
The Art of the Microadventure A series on finding adventure, stoke, and a killer workout in the Great Outdoors by Johnie Gall.
My life sometimes feels like one, big, long, ridiculously wonderful adventure—but there are times I feel almost guilty about it. Why is that I find myself sleeping under the stars by a campfire every weekend? How is it that I spend my weeknights running through a forest or rock climbing at sunset?
Ok, having a Sprinter helps. But here’s the thing: I’m no trust fund baby. I work full time. I have a house to clean, dogs to feed, bills to pay, and grass to mow. I think the secret is that I’ve mastered the art of the microadventure. (more…)
Lately I’ve been wanting to take a road trip every chance I get. So the past few weekends have been spent traveling up to Yosemite, down to Encinitas, and a pit stop in San Onofre. You don’t have to go far to feel free and refreshed. Whether it is jumping in the salt water, standing among the redwoods, or listening to the sound of the waves from your tent, find your happy place and then take the time to do last minute road trips to wherever that may be.
