Cover Shot!

Cover Shot! The Captain of Adventures has been working with north Idaho’s Living Local Magazines now for almost a year, trying to find a photo that they could publish. Lo and behold, they finally found one they could use! It’s a free publication, but my photograph is going to be all over a magazine distributed […]

Green Bay to Ourselves

Green Bay is a pristine little National Forest campground about 30 minutes outside of Sandpoint. There are eight or ten campsites on the water at these two rock beaches. Between the two beaches is a cliff of perfect proportions off of which to jump. The jump is just high enough to be scary but not […]

Trail 44

“Have you heard of Trail 44?” my coworker Jason asked me a while ago. “No. Why?” Jason pulled out his phone. “It looks epic,” he said while he scrolled through pictures his friend had posted of it on Facebook. The photos showed long rolling ridges punctuated by peaks covered in beargrass. A lone rider cruised […]

If you’re just starting off, you might consider these first: Alaska: Part 1 Alaska: Part 2 Alaska: Part 3 Day Seven (Cont’d): Ye Olde Bunque Haus is owned and operated by Pat McGee, an octogenarian who has run the hostel for ages. The main house serves as the classier hostel. The “bunque haus” in the […]

Alaska: Part 3

If you’re just starting, you probably ought to read Alaska: Part 1 and Alaska: Part 2 first. Day Four: I was too excited to sleep much. As quietly as possible, I arose, slid into my boots, and slipped outside. Clouds swirled around the peaks that towered over me. In the distance, back toward Talkeetna, I could […]

Alaska: Part 2

If you’re just picking up here, you might consider reading Alaska: Part 1, first. Day Three: The stifling heat of the four-season single-wall tent woke us with no mercy. The tiny vents at the top of the tent let in little more than hundreds of vociferous mosquitos. The past few days in Alaska temperatures had […]

Writing Again!

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Captain of Adventures has been unduly busy over the last couple of months. However, my latest adventure refuses to go unpublished. The photo below is a teaser for the first installment of three for “Alaska”. Stay tuned fellow adventurers.

Costa Rica: Expedición de Canoas

“¡Me cago en el ICE (eee-say)! ¡Me cago en todas las represas! ¡Me cago en el ICE! / I shit on ICE (the power company)! I shit on all the dams! I shit on ICE!” sang Otto, sopping wet, trudging through knee-deep water. Moments earlier, not 50 meters into our seven hour canoe trip, Otto […]

ViewBug, Photo Sharing, Dreams

Esteemed Readers, Recently, I joined a photo sharing site called ViewBug. It’s a new-ish site with a relatively small Facebook following of only 15,000. It’s new enough that Wikipedia doesn’t even have it listed on their List of photo sharing websites. Joining this site was prompted by an event from last week. A Facebook post […]

El Campeonato de La Tigra de San Carlos
