The Road Trip to Nashville: 3 Best Friends

The idea to take a road trip, got thrown around in a conversation we had in late October of 2015. The plan was to take a road trip as far as we could go, to do and see the most, with the least amount of planning, in the shortest amount of time in order to make it home before Thanksgiving. What resulted was a plan to drive to from New Jersey all the way to Nashville for a night. Thanks to Google maps, the route to Tennessee had plenty of stops along the way. I wanted to include some outdoor …

Finding a Passion in Glade Skiing

“Whatever you do, don’t hit the trees. They don’t move when you hit’m.” A friend yelled back to me as he dropped in at the top of the line and disappeared into the woods.

Half of you might be thinking, “Why would anyone want to do that?” While the other half knows exactly the feeling you get when charging through a fresh coating of snow as you bounce …

Rocktoberfest: First Rock Climbing Comp

I began rock climbing last winter, 2014, and like mostly everything else, I got hooked immediately. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of challenges, atmosphere, people, and of course the fun. I love competition,  I have ever since I was a kid playing all the sports I could, but seeing the great climbers at the gym really turned me away from entering any of the competitions my local gym held. Thankfully, this past October, a not-so-serious comp was held with more of an emphasis on hanging out and having a good time rather than beating the other …

Hiking the Franconia Ridge

44°09′39″N 71°38′40″W One of the most rigorous, yet beautiful, hikes in the Northeast, and absolutely worth it for the views. Located in the beautiful town of Franconia, NH, Mount Lafayette was easily accessible from Route 93 which runs through the Franconia notch between Franconia Ridge and Cannon Mountain. After a late start to the morning, we finally made it to the parking lot around 11:30AM. We knew that this was going to take 6-7 hours, which meant daylight was going to be scarce by the time we reached the bottom. Our plan was to knock off Lafayette, Lincoln, and Little Haystack …

Guide to Skiing Vermont

Skiing in the Northeast is known for icy slopes, overcrowded resorts, and bitter cold winter months, but we have to make do with what mother nature gives us. Last season I skied at Mount Snow, Stratton Mountain, and Okemo Mountain. All three are massive resorts that all have something special to offer. Snow, has an incredible terrain park and glade skiing. Stratton, divided the mountain in half which allows you to hit runs over and over again without having to end up all the way at the bottom. Okemo, has a massive footprint which allows for the dispersion of crowds. …
