Inside The Moments

Since late 2009, when I started to really get into fishing, hiking, and paddling, I've completed some great adventures - some easy, tough, difficult, and some insane. Many of them have, in one way or other, led to goals accomplished or lessons learned. All of them are memorable in some way, and inside of every adventure was either another small adventure in itself or a moment that captivated me or was just simply hilarious and unforgettable. When you hike as much as I do, it is easy to look back at the photos and remember who was with you, or something memorable that happened that day as if it just happened yesterday. The memory comes back as if it human nature for it to happen, but really its nature itself and the views one sees from the trail, in the woods, and from mountaintops that instill this trait in outdoor enthusiasts.

Inside the Moments is a collection of articles on DMOutdoors, where I go back to reflect on particular moments from my adventures. If you've read many of my trip reports, you'll see a whole new perspective on the meaning of some of my previous adventures and will hopefully be able to see, on a more personal level, the enjoyment and happiness that has come to me from my adventures and these certain moments.

I intend for most of these posts to be relatively short, describing a specific moment, but for certain topics, you will see some facts and supporting information, and I don't doubt that I will get carried away on some moments.

You can read all of my episodes right here from this page. When a new one is posted, you will find it listed here, as well as under the labels "Inside The Moments". I hope you enjoy, and if you would like to leave a comment, please do so on the announcement post, or in the episode.
