New Posts & Updates!

Hey all!

It's probably been a while since you subscribed to email updates from my site and you probably forgot all about it since email updates have been a bit haphazard to say the least.  That's been at least partially due to some tech challenges which I think I have a handle on now so you should be seeing updates more regularly when I publish new writeups.  So tell your friends!

Since they've been stopped up a little while here's the last month or so's worth of updates.  Enjoy!  And as always I'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions either directly via email or comments on my site.

Cerro Pinacate Mexico Margarita Bash Featuring Lava Caves And A Hellish Slog Up Carnegie


A repeat of a trip I ran last year down to a remote corner of Mexico.  Pinacate is a long drive but just a beautiful area and the camping makes for a memorable trip every time.  And it does work as a two day if you really want it to!
