This “About” page has changed a number of times over the years. That’s just it, life is change.

After contemplating the total shutdown of this blog, I decided that I would remove all of the commercial BS from it (aka gear reviews, etc…) and just make it more of a personal blog about me, Jacob D, and the experiences I have enjoyed out on the trails. I have been lucky that most of my adult life has been rather extraordinary, honestly the “luck” only factors in to realizing one day that the difference between living an ordinary life and an extraordinary one, comes down to a decision to just do it. It’s as simple as that.

Adventure does not come to us, we have to seek it out. When something calls your name, you have to make the choice to either commit to it, or walk away. Not every outing needs to be epic, it only needs to be enough to fill your cup. I am true to myself and continue to do what I love, which is to be outside, seeking out new adventures. Looking at maps and dreaming. Never accepting that I have grown enough, learned enough, or felt enough. This is me.
