The Tipi Experience

Don and Eric are now co-owners of a lightweight tipi from Seek Outside. This was her first trip -- a quick backpacking excursion into the Pintlers. Roomy (with three), airy, and solid during a windy, at times rainy, evening.  So roomy that I didn't even get gassed out.

Fire Season

Summer is Missoula, Montana, elicits a giddy high. Biking home from the brewery after a visit with friends, breeze in your face, the world a playground, and sunsets such as this, which glowed with the smoke of wildfire season.
