Making it up to dragons tooth on the Appalachian Trail yesterday. 2nd time here, 4 years ago, Andrew White and I had one of the roughest hikes of our lives here. Planned too many miles and even though it was in April, had 3 ft snow drifts on the mountain ridges. Glad I got to revisit it!

Another year come and gone and we often just focus on the year to come and future goals but it's a great time to reflect on all that we've accomplished, experienced, friends we've made and how we've grown as individuals. I got some awesome things lining up for 2018 but heres my favorite moments and experiences of this past year.
1. Spending a week in costa rica with 3 friends having the time of our lives.
2. Built out my van into Bailey and I's current mobile adventure home.

3. Joining the amazing badfishsup family
4. Iowa to Colorado roadtrip for Animas River Days and Gopro games and spending days surfing scout wave and glenwood springs.

5. Transmission going out in the van and few personal issues leading to having to spend some time staying in town surfing and playing volleyball to get me through.

6. Leaving my company as a silent partner to pursue a full time traveling life and doing graphic design work

7. Revisiting havasupai and lake powell for a fun adventure.
8. Spending roughly 5 weeks in fayetville, wv surfing the Gauley with some of my favorite people. Some of the best surf days Ive ever had.

9. Late fall roadtrip full of rock climbing, surfing along the eastcoast, and beers with friends.
Heres to an even better 2018! Cheers!

My top 9 photos of 2017, my first year living the Van Life.

2017 has been a pretty incredible year. While wading through all my old gopro footage, I was reminded where I started, the progression, the struggles, the adventures, and all the friends who have helped me this year making it awesome. Heres some 2017 highlights. (Full length is on facebook)

#tbt to those summer days when the downtown dayton wave was perfect level for a few weeks and basically spent my days set up there with my @badfishsup 2017 river surf quiver

See havasupai through my eyes. This was my 3rd trip here and even though was only there for few days, we made use of every hour possible exploring as much as we could. It really is a beautifully magical place.

About 3 years ago, i started questioning the path I was on and what I was doing. Was this what I really wanted to be doing? Is this where I want to be? Am I here only because its familiar and comfortable? If i could wipe the slate clean, what would make me happy. It wasnt easy uprooting my life, selling everything i owned, giving up a steady paycheck, going from building a tiny home, to buying a camper, to eventually building out a van.
Its been a pretty amazing year but I feel my new life has just begun and still learning this new way of living nomadic. One day, I could be having the time of my life with friends and surfing awesome waves. Then the next day I find myself alone, cold and miserible weather and starting to question what the hell im doing. Its a natural instinct to run back to what we know and are familiar with but I force myself to make use of the alone time, surf even if conditions arent the best, take advantage of every opportunity and just embrace the unknown.

Waves were small, cloudy and rainy, was a frigid 44 degrees, but dolphins were playing nearby and not a soul was on the beach. Traded in the prone for the SUP and decided to have some fun. Someone once told me, despite conditions or weather, you will never regret going out for a surf.
