Sometimes is really pay’s off to read the fine print. Did you know you cancel or change or hold your airline ticket for FREE within 24 hours? And sometimes even longer. Let me introduce you to the Department of Transportation’s consumer rule “Enhancing Airline Passenger Protections” (14 CFR 259.5(b)(4), 76 Fed. Reg. 23110, 23166, Apr. 25, 2011). Here is a link to the actual document, but in nutshell, it says that if you make an airline reservation prior to 7 days

If Mt. Kilimanjaro isn't on your list of adventures, it needs to be. BUT, there are a few things you need to know before you go.

Yes. Kilimanjaro is a pretty serious mountain. If you attempt to climb Kilimanjaro without the proper training you may not enjoy the trek as much. Even though a climb on Kilimanjaro is considered a trek (meaning it's not technical) it's still demanding.  The best way to train for Kilimanjaro is to strap a pack on your back and go hiking as much as possible. By doing so your feet and joints will become accustomed to the constant walking you will

When was the last time you said to yourself "I should do this more"? I said that to myself this weekend when I was out paddleboarding just after sunrise.   We had camped out in out trailer the night before and just after sunrise I hopped out of bed and loaded up my board in the van and headed to the beach. Lucky for us it's not that far away. Literally about 3 munites. When I arrived the water was totally calm and the

I've been doing some short runs and getting back on the road after my little knee issue on Mt. Baker. Although the IT band still gets a little angry around 5 miles, my foam roller seems to be helping. This knee issue isn't anything new. I spent a couple months going to physical therapy a few years back when I was working on my Everest Endeavor project. So, it's old news really and will just take some time. The focus now is

The Rongai, Shira, Lemosho, and Machame routes are camping routes that take longer and are considered more scenic than the Marangu. On the Marangu route, you will be staying in huts as opposed to camping, and you hike up and down the same path. The Rongai route takes you up the north side of the mountain and you descend down the Marangu route. The Lemosho and the Machame routes traverse the mountain and descend down the Mweka Gate. The Shira route takes you

Heading to the other side of the world can be a little nerve-racking.   Yes, there have been horror stories of people going to Kilimanjaro who are stood up. A tour operator takes a clients money and is never seen again. Luckily, those are mostly stories. But, if you're not careful you can have a far less than awesome experience.   Here are few tips for when you first start thinking about Kilimanjaro: 1. Never pay less than $1800 for a trip.  Kilimanjaro is not a cheap undertaking

I'm back home now and rested after an adventurous time up on Mt. Baker. Yesterday at this time I was trudging in the snow with a group of world class ultra marathoners wondering what I've gotten myself into. I had heard about a Mount Baker Marathon several years back when a neighbor of ours up at our cabin had a copy of the film Mountain Runners. It was a documentary about a race that was held from 1911-1913 from Bellingham to the summit of

Here's the route! Look like a little bit of uphill huh!? I'm not going to estimate any times officially, but you can see on the map some of the elapsed times. What you see on the map does take into consideration the elevation gain and is based on a flat 10min mile. Route map for Mt Baker Marathon by Kyle Bingham on plotaroute.com
