Celebrating 80 Years of Life and 60 Years of Marriage

It’s not often that you see a couple with 8 decades of living and 6 decades of marriage.  It is even rarer when these two events occur within 2 months of each other.  This fall mom and dad will hit that sweet milestone of turning 80 years old and being married for 60 years.  I …

Labor Day Weekend Shenanigans

“Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just…DO things”. The Joker in The Dark Knight. It is Friday afternoon, about 5PM of Labor Day Weekend. We’re sitting …

Taking a Stand Against the Assualt on OUR Public Lands

As the developer and primary author of this website, I have tried to stifle my voice and my opinion regarding matters that could be placed in the political realm. I have maintained that hi-adventure.com should be about adventures and experiences, not about my personal political views, political issues or public policy debates. However, I have …

Unplugged in Wyoming

I love Idaho, but my soul will always belong to the mountains of Wyoming. Prologue This year for our summer vacation, Ann and I had 10 days and no plan. Well, we did have an agenda for the first two days – a wedding and a reunion – but then it was wide open and …

Mind Games Don’t you just love those games that the mind loves to play?  I’m sitting here in pre-op at Treasure Valley Hospital getting ready for my ACL surgery.  Everything is going smoothly.  We arrived right on schedule at 11:00 AM and after taking care of the paperwork, we are here getting all of the …

How to Shred Your ACL

The End of a Season – The Beginning of an Adventure It had been such a fantastic day, one of many at Bogus Basin this year.  Almost a foot of powder on the back side of Bogus, skiing the steep gullies and treed areas that lie in the no-mans land between Wildcat and Paradise below …

Know Before You Go

Know before you go: This tagline has become a popular and powerful mantra for those who enter the back country. It is especially applicable for those areas that are accessed directly from the resort gates. In many of these areas, skiers and riders can simply ski right out the gate and head downhill – let …

Bogus to Boise Ski Trek

Trip Report Video TR GPS Map/Data I seem to be drawn to interesting adventures that are counter to what the “crowd” or conventional wisdom says I should be doing. I’ve been known to pass up great fly fishing water where “everyone” goes, and instead hike / bushwhack into remote streams with rock and brush lined …

Do Rules Apply When We Leave the Resort

As part of our annual ritual to ring in the ski season, my wife and I met with some friends and attended the latest Warren Miller film, “Here, There and Everywhere”. As a whole, I thought it was a great film and I loved the way that they honored Warren and paid homage to him …

Training Day

The Tetons Are Calling “I told you so”! That is what Ann said, laughing, as I called her from my smartphone on the Garnet Canyon trail as we headed back from our latest Teton adventure. So what was it that I had done to elicit that response? In this instance, it was the warning that …

Mashed Taters in the Lost River Range

When it comes to spring skiing, our skiing “vegetable” of choice is corn, nice buttery corn. The recipe for this condition is clear skies, cold nights, (below freezing), and a sunny day. Timing is critical, just like grilling corn on the cob, you need just the right amount of heat/radiation. Too little and you are …

An Epic Suffer-Fest in the Tetons

Photography courtesy Elijah Weber The mountains do not treat the proud and stubborn kindly. Sometimes that lesson can be reinforced with death, or serious injury. Most of the time, however, it is simply reinforced by pain and suffering. Spoiler alert, this is an account of one of those suffer-fests where no bodily harm occurred, but …

Skiing the Southwest Couloir on the Middle Teton

The alarm goes off at 4:00AM and I immediately am awake. On almost any other day of the year this would not be the case, especially given that I had just rolled into bed at 11:15PM after a 6 hour drive. I’m now entering “stage 1” of a typical big peak climb & ski – …

Australia Ski Adventure

“Cody, let it go”. I can clearly hear Sean Connery’s voice in my head as I’m looking across only one more saddle and then a 500 foot climb up the southeast ridge of Mt. Feathertop here in the Australian Alpine National Park. Why am I standing here listening in my mind to this simple, yet …

The Mobile Sweat Unit

In the summer of 1997, I was working for Compaq Computer Corporation in Houston, TX.  As my first foray into product marketing, I was a bit overwhelmed.  While cranking away on some spreadsheet, my boss asked to borrow my car since his was in the shop.  He was a buttoned-down East Coast prep school guy …
