Summer ’16 Video
Summer is over. That mostly sucks. What doesn’t suck is that it’s time to show off my Summer ’16 video edit! A collection of video clips and photos from the last few months, thrown over some funky lyrics for your enjoyment! Like I said last year. It was the best summer ever….until next summer.
Matt Wojciak Previews His Upcoming Excursion into Vermont’s Green Mountains
Our very first guest submission on Livin’ Deliberately comes from one of my good friends, Matt Wojciak of New Hampshire.

Here, he describes his summer and his latest scheme which will take him into Vermont’s…
Four Days on the Appalachian Trail: Gulf Hagas to Abol Bridge
I’ve come up with some pretty crazy ideas in my head for different adventures. Most never come to fruition, some end up drastically altered for safety, money, or time constraints, and some take a lot of time to come true so we’ll see how they turn out. My latest might’ve been one of the most…

Between the end of the semester, traveling to Guatemala, and a new relationship, it’s been hard to find time to sneak away for a hike as I try to sort out stuff in this new post-baseball life of mine. I’m committing in this New Year to write…
The Mountain of the People of Maine
A lot of the time when I go off onto an adventure, wherever it may be, the toughest part is describing it. I’ve talked about this before in other posts, so I won’t get into all that again. However, I will say that there is absolutely no better example of this than Katahdin.
The Pemi Loop
“Who has not felt the urge to throw a loaf of bread and a pound of tea in an old sack and jump over the back fence.” -John Muir I sent a text to my good friend Zach on Monday night to discuss possibly going on a big hike sometime this summer. By Friday night,…
