Owen Wilson once said, you have to find your inner “ness” which basically just means adding “ness” to your name. And once you find that inner “ness” you can start to throw your 7 Different Kinds of Smoke. Well I don’t know if I have 7, Owen is a tough man to compete with and I’m still young, but I do throw a few kinds of Smoke. I practiced a few on the Teton Crest Trail this weekend with my bro, and and a few friends. The Trail was a little bit like the route they take in Lord of the Rings, except with less sword fights and unfortunately no elves.
SPEED HIKING- Although my friends didn’t like it when I was throwing this one out, especially uphill, it felt good.
Oh and the pack on my back is holding a small gnome.
GEAR SELECTION- Check out my new Big Agnes tent (on the left), this thing was like a palace, I could have run hot laps around it.
CAMPSITE SELECTION- This was the view from my tent. I know.. its pretty rad.
HIGH-ALTITUDE NAPPING- This type of skill comes in handy when you arrive at 10,000ft to a ridiculous alpine lake, and 5 hours of downtime. I read Harry Potter, while my partner in crime swam for 30 minutes, which led to mild hypothermia. (notice the down coat).
CHRISTMAS CARD WORTHY PICTURE TAKING- Mom’s gonna love this one. And check out those Cloudveil jackets.
Here we are all throwing our favorite kind of smoke.
Wildlife spotted: Black bear, porcupine, deer, marmots lots of marmots, eagles, and crazy Jackson ultra runners.
Menu included specialties like: Mac and cheese, GORP, an Italian pasta and garlic bread feast, Snickers bars, gourmet coffee, and my favorite… poppyseed mini muffins.
Miles traveled: approx 30.
Fights between my brother and I: ZERO
