Exploring O’Bannon Woods State Park

Took a trip to O’Bannon Woods State Park to scout out the Adventure Hiking Trail for a future hike. Due to time, I was not able to scout that trail but I was able to check out the Ohio River Bluff Hiking Trail as well as some of the rest of the park. I hope you enjoy this adventure

Hiking the Nebo Ridge Trail in the Hoosier National Forest

So I thought I was gonna be a Billy Bad A** and attempt to do 17 miles in a single day hike. I set out on the Nebo Ridge Trail in the Hoosier National Forest in Brown County Indiana. The trail was actually pretty pleasant when you got to the top of the ridge. The initial elevation gain was not too bad either. The think that kicked my butt was the sheer mileage of it all. I recommend this for experienced hikers who have lots of stamina. Overall, it was still a great experience because it felt good to think of such a great accomplishment while on my way to the hospital lol JK

Red River Gorge ~ The Quest for Timman’s Arch

A couple of friends and I set out to find the elusive Timmans Arch in the Red River Gorge. We camped at Koomer Ridge and also visited Creation Falls, Rock Bridge, and did some milky way photography on Auxier Ridge Trail. Come along with us on this adventure.

Hiking the Mogan Ridge East Trail in the Hoosier National Forest

This trail has eluded me for well over a year now and I was determined to kick its butt. In this video, you will find me complaining the entire way. I come across mud, bugs, spider webs, ticks, and heat. I ended up finishing it and I feel glad that I did. I think this trail would be better to do in the spring or the fall but now that I have completed it, I will leave that to others to decide lol..

Gander Mountain Guide Series Hiking Shorts

I recently also purchased a  new pair of hiking shorts that were very comfortable and really helped my range of motion when tackling elevation. I also wanted to pass this recommendation along to you.

Gander Mountain Guide Series Hiking Shirt

I recently purchased a new hiking shirt and I am pretty excited about it. It is so much more comfortable than the cotton shirts I had been using. Much more breathable. I wanted to pass along this recommendation.

Solo Overnight Camp in the Charles C. Deam Wilderness

I needed to get back out for a nature fix so I decided to head back to the Charles C Deam Wilderness near Bloomington Indiana. I went back to a spot that I knew and about 100 yards away a group of drunken yahoos decided to take up residence at the next camp spot. That’s okay, I did not let them ruin my fun and I even got some reviews filmed while I was there. The next morning, I packed up and headed out and forgot to film my way back to the car.
