#OptOutside 2018

Alaska’s Denali Borough and Denali National Park have teamed up with REI’s #optoutside movement this post-Thanksgiving Friday. You won’t catch me in a store this weekend, but you might find me out on the trail.

See you outside. It should be close to 0F, plus or minus.


Enjoy your Thanksgiving

National Trails Day

Saturday, June 2 is National Trails Day, and 2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act. National Trails Day was started 25 years ago by the American Hiking Society to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Trails System Act. National Trails Day is always the first Saturday of June.

As always, I highly recommend all readers of C-to-C to take a hike. Even if it only means a trip around the block. Get outside and enjoy what this planet has to offer. It’s quite rewarding, in a non gadget, kind of way.
