The prAna Monarch Convertible pant is the most durable, versatile and comfortable pair of bottoms in my closet…ok, I have to admit there are actually two pairs and they are rarely in my closet as I take them everywhere I travel.
I’ve been known to go off-trail a time or two, but these pants have held up to branches, rocks and every extreme environment I’ve encountered. The water repellent finish is especially nice for those of us living in the Northwest and also the reason I wear them on every mountaineering adventure. This is a great feature for travels abroad during rainy seasons as well.
Did I mention these pants come with me everywhere I travel? I wear them while hiking/backpacking, climbing, mountaineering, skydiving and even just strolling around town. The ability to convert these pants to a knicker is especially wonderful on long trips. I wore these...
Belize is one of the most exciting family adventure travel destinations in Central America, especially for teens and young adults. Lately, I've been planning a lot of adventure trips to Belize for active families. It seems likes the everyone's most cherished experience involves making connections with the local cultures. Dinning on traditional native cuisine, exploring Maya ruins and learning about the history of this beautiful country. Here are my top 7 activities and experiences you don't want to miss during your family vacation in Belize.
1. ATM CAVE: Actun Tunichil Muknal is considered one of the top 10 caves in the world. Access to this Maya underworld and sacrificial site can be done by most spelunkers 12 and older. We first hike through the forest, once we get to the caves we swim in underground rivers surrounded by crystallized stalactites and stalagmites to get to the main chamber. Inside you'll...

I recently got asked what trip am I most excited about sending travelers on in 2014. My personal favorite has to do with dragons and not just because I’m also really excited for the 2nd Hobbit movie to come out! I’m talking about REAL dragons, the ones you can find only in the Komodo Islands of Indonesia. My wife and I had the privilege of joining one of our Indonesian Adventure Voyages on the Ombak Putih which departs from Bali and tip-toes through the eastern archipelago visiting remote fishing communities, deserted islands with off shore coral reefs of incredible biodiversity and of course foot pursuits to find dragons in the Komodo National Park.
This photo shoud give you a pretty good idea of the size of the dragons.
Not only are the adventurous parts amazing, but it’s everything in-between that makes this trip a winner too! The ship is a...
This year Bhutan has been on my mind as one of our newest destinations we are offering at Wildland. Last week I posed the question to my son about where we should travel to in 2014. I gave him several awesome choices, but when I mentioned “archery” he said “Bhutan! Let’s go there”. My son takes archery classes and he likes that archery is the national sport in Bhutan and is deep-rooted in the culture. Going to an archery match in Bhutan is like going to a baseball game here. The archers are amazingly skilled, shooting from 430 feet. When you are done watching a match or trying your hand at the sport, you can venture off to a more peaceful activity such as visiting a beautiful Dzong, a local temple or wandering in a market.
Our Central Bhutan Walking Adventure is an active itinerary taking you on hikes to...
