Guatemala, Part Three: Chicken Beers, Lava, and Chance the Rapper

The people were clamoring for it, so I delivered. And by people clamoring, I mean my mom asking if I was “ever going to finish your Guatemala posts” one time over dinner five days ago.   Guatemala, Episode Three: Curfews Are For Nerds So, where we left off. Busses, sick gringos, and a three-hour drive…

Hey, do you want to hang out and grab dinner sometime? Maybe stare at our phones the whole time? 

Guatemala, Part Two: The Part That Actually Happens in Guatemala

Thanks for tuning in for tonight’s episode of The Guatemala Chronicles. I think I’ll keep this to three parts, today being about the experiences at the work site during the first few days and the next segment being about our “off” day in Antigua, Guatemala and our journey home. Without further ado…

Guatemala, Part One: Getting there is half the fun!

New England weather is a fickle thing. One day it looks like spring has come early, the next day I’m busting my ass on a snowy side walk during a legit snow storm. My coccyx is fine, don’t worry. Since I hate being cold and I hate snow storms, I won’t be hiking this week…

Icy Ridges and Awesome Views on Mount Cutler

Hopefully, you’ll excuse my long absence from blog-writing.

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,…

What’s In A Name?

To be perfectly honest, I’ve wanted to start a blog for quite some time now. I love to write, and I love to share my thoughts, photographs, videos and whatever else I can share in order for people to experience the things I’m lucky enough to experience. The only thing stopping me has been writer’s…
