It’s midnight and it’s freezing. The tiny industrial park is dead and empty, save for one open garage bay. Bathed in harsh lights and fatigued by 48 hours of continuous work, six guys are dirty and bloody trying to turn the husk of an old BMW into a race car. They don’t have enough time. They don’t have the right…
As the highest point in the contiguous United States, Mt. Whitney stands at 14,505 feet tall. Easy accessibility makes it a prime destination for hikers and climbers from around the world. We’ve hiked it, mountaineered it and rock climbed it, and here’s how you can do any of that too.
I’m a hunter. Not because I hate animals or nature, but because I love them. Two weeks ago, I flew to Washington to shoot a bear with a bow, that was a couple weeks after the whole #CecilTheLion business. And hunting was different, but maybe not for the reasons you’re thinking.
Last month, I took the Nikon D810 out on the Sierra High Route — one of the toughest adventures around. It got dirty, wet, and constantly banged around. Here’s how it performed.
Located off the coast of Panama, the San Blas Islands are rarely visited and can be dangerous to reach. So, we hopped aboard a pirate ship and set sail. Here’s how you can do that too.
Twenty miles off the coast of Ventura lies Santa Cruz Island — a remote mecca for adventure. We spent a weekend exploring it. Here’s how you can too.
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.
About 50 years ago, the U.S. government used 30,000 pounds of explosives to turn a chunk of Arizona into a simulated moonscape for astronauts to practice picking up rocks on. Today, you can take your own truck out there and carve it up like a ski slope because it’s an off-road park ON THE MOON. Here’s how to do it.
My boyfriend and I are paddling all 2,552 miles of the Mississippi River in a pair of kayaks. And the near-constant rain is creating some serious flooding. That makes the paddling difficult and dangerous, sure, but there’s other hazards too.
Alex Woodford is a 22-year old lady from England. Last year, while the two of us were camping with Bear Grylls, she told me she wanted to kayak the Mississippi from its headwaters in Minnesota all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. And now she’s doing it. — Ed.
The 2015 Overland Expo went down this weekend at Mormon Lake, Arizona just outside Flagstaff. It’s an annual convention of next-level camping nuts who spend the value of a house turning trucks into… well, houses. Just look at these marvelous monsters.
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.
I haven't been skiing since the late '90s. So, for my first time back, a trip out of bounds through the backcountry outside Jackson Hole Mountain Resort was a safe, practical thing to do, right?
Did you know that Quebec City has a waterfall that's taller than Niagara? And did you know it freezes over every winter? And did you know you could climb it when it does? We just did that and here's how you can too.
The windiest mountain in the world isn't in some far flung place, it's in New Hampshire. Mt Washington's winds can top 200mph and its temperatures fall as low as -47F. During one of the coldest Februarys on record, we decided to climb it, along with the six other peaks that make up the Presidentials.
I just bought the first car I've owned in 13 years and decided to break it in properly over the weekend. Ingredients for this adventure included: Death Valley, being naked around your friends and a bunch of crusty hippies, hot springs, Unimogs full of twinks, mushrooms and 125 miles of off-roading.
The folding Oru Kayak goes from flatpack to floating in just minutes. Tough enough for the real world? We took it down the Colorado River, armed with a shotgun, to find out.
Some bad decisions were made while backpacking The Lost Coast and a buddy ended up alone, in a storm, after dark, fording whitewater and climbing cliffs with no gear. I should have known better, but at least we got a good story out of it. — Ed.
Way up at the top of Northern California is a little piece of wilderness called The Lost Coast. It's too rugged to build on, meaning it's the last coastline here that's unspoiled. It's also dangerous, as you can see in this picture. Especially in winter, during a storm. Let's go backpacking!
After adventuring in some of the world's harshest environments, we went to Thailand to thaw out and drink from coconuts. We wouldn't be laying on beaches though. We were there to experience some of the best sport climbing in the world.
