Ever think about quitting your job and taking off?

Jesse did just that. I have been following his excellent blog for months now as he attempts to visit all the National Parks in the USA, including Alaska!


It would be well worth subscribing to the RSS feed now. Jesse has signed on for a 120 day RV tour of South America next.

Surprisingly, tiny Hong Kong offers some terrific hiking.

I’ve done day hikes on some of the islands. One of our contributors recently did a long day hike on the mainland.

Of course combining hiking with one of the most photogenic cities in the world is a great combination!

The clean, well organized hostels offer the best value accommodation in town. My home base in Hong Kong is the Mt. Davis hostel.

UPDATE – added photos from the climb to Flickr

Scott Whiteside organized 6 hikers to scramble his favourite mountain in the Crowsnest Pass. We needed no climbing gear but be warned there are a few tricky spots on this mountain.

We took our time spending almost 8hrs on the adventure. All returned unscathed — except for 1 thumb squashed by a falling rock. Rock fall is the biggest danger when scrambling the rotten Rockies.

For evidence that we actually reached the summit, click PLAY on the video below or watch the clip on YouTube.
