CHOOSING A NEXT VACATION OR ADVENTURE

It has been about 10 months since I first started doing one month long Airbnb rentals to explore different states/cities. One of the main questions I get is how I choose my next location to explore so I’m going to take some time to dig into my thought process around that.

CEDAR CITY, UTAH

I arrived in Cedar City, Utah a little over a week ago for my next 30 day stay. Cedar City is in the southwest corner of Utah, it has a higher elevation than Denver (5,846 ft.) and is a place I have never been. I chose Cedar City because it is about equidistance to twoContinue reading “CEDAR CITY, UTAH”

SUMMER DAY HIKE PACK ESSENTIALS

I was hiking over the weekend with some friends and one of them asked how heavy my backpack was. I proceeded to take off my backpack to let them hold it and they were surprised by the weight! For summer day hikes, I carry the same black backpack whether the hike is shorter or longContinue reading “SUMMER DAY HIKE PACK ESSENTIALS”
