Pioneer Peak Minus33 Merinoholics Adventures

Hiking Pioneer Peak

Since I moved to Alaska in the winter of 2012, the mountains have been calling me.

 

I became an outdoor enthusiast fairly quickly and soon found myself on a quest to step beyond the tree line and seek the pristine air of high altitudes. 2 years ago, while doing some research, I came across a mountain that stuck with me. Pioneer Peak massively rises above the town of Palmer, in the Matanuska valley, at an elevation of 6,398 ft.

Minus33 Merino Wool Merinoholics Love Outdoors Letting Go

Letting Go

There are many reasons for which I love the outdoors.

 
Taking a break from daily life and spending time alone are obvious ones. But there is also something much more important to me: letting go. I tend to worry a lot in general, about the future, about my choices in life, about money, etc. Things that appear so convoluted and never seem to improve over time, although I’m sure they do. And so I get stuck, I can’t seem to find a way to change my state of mind.

Leave No Trace

I try to get out weekly for a mountain run, hike or climb.  I didn’t have a ton of time as I needed to get some house work done since it’s spring.  I went out to my local haunt for a run with a little elevation and to allow the puppy to stretch his legs before he gets miserable with the heat.

From Alleghany National Forest to Haiti

This spring was a season of change and as always, adventure. I played my last college softball game, graduated with my Bachelor’s degree, completed a black diamond rope course (it was killer), adopted a puppy, traveled to Haiti, and started grad school.

A Call Out, Mt. Lafayette

Its Saturday night right around 10:00 pm, and I’m in the process of getting ready for bed. I’m brushing my teeth when my phone starts ringing and on the caller ID  it shows PVSAR, which is the acronym for Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue. READ MORE

minus 33 merino wool clothing, Sailing On Blue Water

Sailing on Blue Water

California has got the goods when it comes to climate.

 

I’m finding Los Angeles to be more and more of an outdoor city. There are beautiful mountain trails, camping venues from the shore to the desert, and it seems everyone is constantly outside enjoying nature. The weather here allows for it. The ocean’s current brings cold water down from Alaska, but the sun shines on the same latitude as Georgia. The result is a warm sun with a cool breeze. This creates a Mediterranean climate that hangs out somewhere between 50 and 70 degrees all year long (perfect sailing weather). So if you are a fan of light jackets and ocean breezes, this might be the place for you.READ MORE

minus 33 merino wool clothing, Forest Bathing

Forest Bathing

Last week I had the fortune of coming home for Easter. The East coast ordered us up chill nights in the 40s and sunny days in the 80s. (Layers of wool were applied and removed as needed.) While home in the Adirondack Park, we were sure to spend some time on the mountain-side; hiking the trails, drinking the spring melt water, and breathing in the evergreens. Some people say that a walk in the woods can be just what the doctor ordered and recently I found evidence supporting that claim.READ MORE

Moose Hunting with Minus33

Minus 33,

My friend Dale Ash turned me on to your products last year. In September I did a DIY moose hunt in the Alaska Range. It was my first trip to Alaska. Your underwear was perfect for hunting in and sleeping in. Kept me comfortable even when damp. Temperatures ranged from 15 degrees F and snow to sunny and 55.READ MORE
