NASA announced that it has booked three private companies to ferry supplies up to the International Space Station through the next eight years—and the new contracts will allow them to add one new astronaut to their roster.
Stretching 200 miles through the Sierra Nevada, most of the High Route is off-trail, posing challenges both physical and mental as you attempt to navigate dangerous, unmarked terrain. It took us two solid weeks. Worth it? Well, at least the photos came out good.
When I was a kid, I used to think that fly fishing involved waving the fly around in the air until the fish jumped out of the water to eat it. I was wrong. A couple weekends ago, I finally got to try it for real. And look, I caught a monster!
This weekend, we took the off-road version of the new Ford F-150 pickup through the highest elevation trail in California. It’d be a test for its new turbocharged engine and its ability on dirt, rocks and sand. Could America’s best selling vehicle hack it?
I used to ride mountain bikes when I was a kid. They were a fun toy that took me places. But man, I never remember them being this much hard work! Looking for a little more adventure, I’ve been teaching myself to ride them again. This is what I’ve learned so far.
Did you know that turkeys kill rattlesnakes? Forgive me a little bit of a Ben Franklin moment, but I’m going to tell you about one of the most interesting wild animals that’s native to North America and what it’s like tracking them in the wild.
So you like photography and go on some pretty cool adventures too? Then adventure photography might be for you. We'll teach you everything you need to know to get started.
Watching the fermentation process of beer is a lot like seeing a brown sludge monster grow in strength. It's not pretty.

One of the most incredible ways to explore this planet is on foot, carrying everything you need to survive on your back. Here's how to make backpacking as awe inspiring as possible.

Alpine lakes, 14,000 foot mountains, Giant Sequoias and grassy meadows? The 60-mile High Sierra Trail has it all and literally passes through Valhalla. We did it last week.
NASA may have shuttered its Space Shuttle program, but we knew that wasn't the end of manned American trips to space. Today, NASA shelled out 1.1 billion dollars to three private firms who have been working on spacecrafts of their own: Boeing, Sierra, and SpaceX.
Are we really this hard up for gasoline? Are you absolutely certain that there's no other way??
