The crew of Aid Station 3 at the 2018 Holiday Lake 50k
Holiday Lake 50k is one of the oldest ultras in the Mid-Atlantic Region. I planned to run it this February, but an Achilles injury sidelined me for the race, so I volunteered to help with an aid station.
I am glad I did because I got to see the race up close, and my experience made me want to run the race even more when I am healed up. Click HERE for my full thoughts.

At the finish of the Great Mississippi River Levee Run with my wife and daughter
I have used the Princeton Tec Axis headlamp ultra-running on the Mississippi River Levee, car camping and hiking and it has performed superbly.

Styling the Salewa Pedroc Jacket while walking Mia at the Woodlands Conservancy
I did not have to search for Winter in the Southeastern United States this year and I didn’t need to search for opportunities to use the Salewa Polartec Pedroc jacket. I used it during a 130 mile run from Baton Rouge to New Orleans, for wintery hikes at the Woodlands Conservancy and while camping in national forests in Louisiana and Missippi.

Hiking in the Kisatchie National Forest while wearing the SAXX Quest 2.0 Boxers
Well, I admit it, I am converted. SAXX boxers have become my favorite underwear. I have used them while backpacking, camping, and hiking, and they are durable, funk free, and comfortable. Read my full final review HERE.
Filtering water with the Katadyn BeFree while running in Alaska
I have continued to use the Katadyn BeFree filter over the past couple months on a couple more backpacking trips. Durability has been great over the past couple months with no issues, but ease of use, well it is still easy to use, but there were some hiccups. Click HERE to read my final update.
