Updates from the adventure

We are off on our family’s 170+ mile biking, canoeing, and backpacking journey across the arrowhead of Minnesota with Jack (3 years old) and Rowan (9 month old) in tow. We will be updating our Facebook page regularly so feel free to check in with us.

Where are we now?

You can also track our progress along the route thanks to the borrowed Garmin InReach Explorer we have along.

About the author


I grew up in a dome home on 10 acres of land in rural Minnesota with my parents and older brother. My parents enrolled me in the Boy Scout program in 1993 and I earned the honor of Eagle Scout in 2003. For 7 years I worked at Tomahawk Scout Reservation as Climbing Director, Scoutcraft Director, and High Ropes Course Director. Not only did Scout Camp provide me with invaluable leadership and outdoor skills but it is also where I met my wife in 2007 when she was working as the Horse Corral Director. We were married 2 years later and welcomed our first son, Jack, 5 years after that. Together, the three of us have enjoyed many outdoor adventures as a family. When I'm not exploring the natural world around me I work as a User Experience Designer for Amazon.
