Our Memorial Day Weekend gave us a taste of everything our home has to offer – rain, sunshine & blue skies, snow, wind, and the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises Colorado could offer.

To kick off the summer season – which will be full of festivals, backcountry explorations, overlanding adventures, SUPing,  rafting, fishing and more – we headed into the Rio Grande National Forest.

It was also the weekend I started a new chapter on the YouTube channel – more videos of adventuring!! Until now, I have really focused on gear reviews. But as you’ll see, this new season will bring all of you along for the ride – with gear feature in the mix, of course. So check it out, let me know what you think, and consider subscribing to the channel.

Thanks all!

Adventure on…

  1. Hi! Enjoyed the video 🙂 Any tips on Forest’s sleeping bag? Our little boy is about 2 weeks younger than him & so far we’ve gone for a thick grobag plus extra blanket layers but I keep eyeing up other possibilities… thanks!

    1. Forest is a big time snuggle bug, so I sleep with my bag open and both of us sharing it then I use a down blanket (one side soft and fuzzy and the other side is sleeping bag material – from Eddie Bauer) and a wool blanket on top of that (Woolrich makes them, or go with a more economical option like Nederland CO based company Adventure Tool Company’s Wool Camp Blanket – it’s seriously awesome). The hardest thing is that he still nurses at night, so though he’s nice and warm, I get a wee bit chilled at times when I’m uncovered. But that setup works for us. Good luck!!


      1. Thanks for the suggestions! I now have the fun task of working out what’s available & affordable here in the U.K. 😉 Our little one also enjoys cuddling up but I find I get more sleep when he’s not bashing me in the face (or turning through 90 degrees) in the night!
