Guns, Gear, and The Great Outdoors

I’m Back

Hello everyone. You may have noticed over the last ten months and twenty-some-odd days that thriveoutside fell off the face of the planet. First, allow me to apologize. The very things that I preach about via this blog were abandoned by its author as life threw a few curve balls his way. I stopped enjoying the beauty that surrounds us. I stopped trying new things and going on new adventures. I planted myself on the sofa and became the person that this site denounces…a jaded couch potato. For that, my fellow lovers of life, I apologize. It ends today.

Moving forward, a few new inspirations will soon decorate the pages of thriveoutside. A series of 30 day challenges (inspired by a ted talk viewable here: will allow you to follow along with me as I attempt the impossible by taking on life-enriching trials for an entire month at a time. Being that today is Feb. 1, what better time to start one of these than today. Check back later this afternoon to find out what I will be up to for the next month.
Also to come:
  • Continuation of the Total Outdoorsman Personal Challenge
  • A combination deep-sea / fly fishing adventure in the Florida Keys
  • The creation of an intensive produce garden in the name of self-sufficiency (and how to earn a little cash as a bonus)
  • Seed Saving
  • A backpacker’s review of the LL Bean microlight fs-2 tent
  • lot’s of kayaking, backpacking, and exploring adventures

If you are reading this as a one-time follower of ThriveOutside, thanks for checking back and for sticking with me. If you’re a new visitor…welcome, it should prove to be a refreshing place to visit. Until next time, happy Friday, thanks for stopping by, and get your butts outside and enjoy life this weekend!
