I have an admission to make. I’ve owned a split board for over 4 years now and it’s never made it very far away for the resort boundaries. Why? Honestly... some fear and respect for the backcountry.
One of my last years living in Tahoe I did an AVI course but it was such a bad drought year that even in the of January we barely had enough snow to do the practical portions of the course so we focused more on in-class work.
The course leaders had us read many heart breaking stories of the consequences of poor judgement or small mistakes... and having lived in mountain towns most of my life... I’ve unfortunately known many people whose lives ended in unexpected slides.
While I think fear is ultimately a good thing... it points us in the direction of making better decisions... I don’t think being immobilized by it serves growth in any way and I’m ready to face some fears.
I just signed up for another AVI 1 course that is run as a three day hut trip. It will be my first hut trip ever and, with all the snow we already have, I am excited to get some more hands on experience out there.
I have a big goal this coming year of getting more and more comfortable out in the wilderness... learning the skills I need to make smart decisions out there. Anyone else facing some fears this winter?

As I write this my pup, Tabor, is cuddled up next to me on the couch. It’s so wild to think that this dog who was scared of everything and everyone is now such a brave adventurer and excellent cuddle buddy…
It’s been a little over a year now since we rescued her and even though we were told she was saved from a puppy mill we know relatively little about her background or the breeding practices of the place she was rescued from.
In Oct I partnered with @wisdompanel to celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog month and as part of that partnership, we got to test out the #WisdomPanel 4.0 for ourselves and find out a bit more about Tabor’s genetic story.
According to her results, she is 75% Mini American Shepherd (also known as mini Aussie) and 25% Australian Shepherd but the most impactful thing we learned was that she is positive for the MDR1 gene mutation! Dogs that have the MDR1 mutation may potentially have harmful reactions to commonly used medications, so informing Tabor’s veterinarian about this information is really important. They can identify appropriate medications to use that will not have these side effects so we’re able to keep Tabor safe and healthy.
Adopting from a shelter is INCREDIBLY rewarding but not knowing your dog’s history can feel a bit disempowering. Learning more about Tabor’s genetics has made me feel like I have more tools than ever to be the dog mama she deserves and I’m looking forward to as many years of adventures together as possible!

Currently on a flight back from Mexico where I’ll be home for all of 22 hours to unpack my bags - and then repack, replacing the flip flops and bikinis with hiking boots and mittens, before hopping on another flight. I’m excited to explore the gorgeous areas outside of this park for the next few days with a group of amazing ladies! 💜 ✨ where are you exploring this weekend?? #usinterior#visittheusa#greaterzion

Winter is just around the bend and all my favorite paved and forest roads are being closed this month 😩
Do you ever find yourself suddenly realizing that you aren’t quite yourself? •
Recently, I was asked what I was passionate about — if money wasn’t an issue, what would I go for. I honestly couldn’t come up with an answer, because the things I love are sometimes short lived. The things I love are also loved by many others and I’m left wondering what it is that makes me, me. •
What makes me stand out? What about you? Have you thought about what stokes your fire? •
At first I was really disappointed in myself for not knowing. I wanted to have an answer but I realized I also need to be more gentle with myself. •
I need to forgive myself for the many times I’ve brought myself down instead of raising myself up —for being complacent instead of curious, for not allowing myself to discover what stokes my fire, and for giving up when I’m not the best at something. I need to stop questioning my fire and just let it burn. •
So tell me, as you’re reading this, what’s that fire inside your head that you keep picturing and never let burn? Because maybe you should just let it. 😌
That N°7 🔥 carbon steel drop point and distressed blonde beech wood handles.
Will be offering only these N°7’s in 2020 at a $55 price point - Shipped US 🤙🏻 I’ve evaluated and refined my process after a year of making over 200 of these. It was fun but time was the biggest factor that drove me to take a break and step away from them. However, this N°7 carbon drop point is a sweet spot for me. The size is comparable to the bullnose 👍🏻 I feel really good being able to make these in less time and at a price point that’s doable for most people.
Holler or shoot me a DM if you’re stoked about this! I really appreciate you guys and the support you’ve give me over this last year. Really wanting to keep providing solid content and a slick Opinel mod option for you guys 🍻
As much as I wanted to be here today....
I decided to stay home and make productivity my priority!
When your self employed like me you have to learn self discipline.
Sometimes you have to sacrifice fun for “work”.
You can make it enjoyable by just enjoying the entire process.
Day in and out.
Whether it’s tasks you love to do or not, finding joy in the process and always seeing the bigger vision can make even the sacrifices fun!
Stumbled across this photo on Facebook from a few years back and couldn't help but repost it here too. Just an absolute UNIT. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have gotten so close, but he was literally right outside my cabin so what else was I gonna do 😝
We all go through good and bad periods. The only difference is how you handle what life throws at you. I think you can always tell when a person is hurting inside, even if they haven’t told you. The gestures, the clothes they wear, the words they use. I’ve met so many people who love making bad comments about others or say hurtful things jokingly. What they don’t realise is that a happy person doesn’t feel the need to drag others down. I think it’s important to remember that everyone struggles and that making other people feel bad will never make yourself feel better! ✨#revolutionrace#natureisourplayground#hiking
"If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts." One of my favorite lines from one of my favorite songs (bonus points if you comment with who it is!), and very relevant when it comes to thinking about digital media. I've said it before, but one of my biggest pet peeves is when someone says "Why don't you just enjoy the moment instead of taking pictures?"... My response is always that that's how I enjoy things, but the real answer goes deeper than that. Not only am I living in the moment, I'm building a bridge; a direct connection between my brain now and my brain in the future! I'm forging and strengthening pathways between neurons, allowing my memories to stay fresh and clear, years (or even decades) later. I'm not just enjoying the moment; I'm enjoying ALL moments. But sure, by all means, enjoy your granola bar in peace, buddy. 😎
