Remarkably Knowledgeable Naturalists and Guides Hello, and thank you, muchas gracias, to everyone at Wildland Adventures for your expertise, calm guidance, and good sense in arranging our wonderful Galapagos trip in the latter half of August. It still feels as if the ink is not dry from it yet, but we wanted to let you know (before it does) that this was a fantastic adventure, on many levels, and we greatly appreciate all that you did to make it so. We realize that it is really a privilege to visit there, and to be able to do so in the company of interesting people, remarkably knowledgeable naturalists and guides, and the gracious and capable captain and crew on the Eric was quite special. All the best. John Blanchard and Kathleen LoGiudice  Galapagos Adventure Cruise - Eric/Flamingo/Letty...

Ebola Update: Southern and Eastern Africa Safari Tourism Unaffected Updated as of September 16, 2014 Unfortunately for the residents of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, Ebola is continuing to overwhelm their inadequate health systems. Our thoughts are with them as they face this crisis and we hope that the 3,000 troops that the US committed today to help build clinics and train healthcare workers will be further supported by other countries. For travelers the situation remains unchanged, with travel to Africa outside of the affected West African countries considered to be safe. The CDC is warning to postpone travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia, but they are not recommending postponing travel to other countries in Africa.   Since our last writing there has been one case in Senegal, brought to Dakar, Senegal by a Guinean man who crossed the border overland. It is important to note that Senegal's health system, particularly in the capital of Dakar, is much...

The Up For Anything Shirt I have been meaning to write a gear review about my favorite shirt for a long time because my ExOfficio Reef Runnerâ„¢ Shirt absolutely deserves a shout out. It has stood up to everything I've thrown at it; not only has it stood up to the test, but it's the only shirt that I feel like I could literally wear anywhere and in any situation. This shirt has been with me while guiding trips around the world, journeying across the Sahara, backpacking through our National Parks, downhill mountain biking in Canada, salsa dancing in Madrid's discotecas and even doing a "Man Test" in Montana. On this adventure I took only my ExOfficio shirt, a pair of pants and a furry Montana hat and headed out into the backcountry to see if I could survive with nothing else. I've even worn this shirt going out on first dates! If that doesn't show faith in a product,...
