minus 33 merino wool clothing, The "Big Windy", Greenbacks and Minus33. Winter, fish, Ice fishing Big Windy

The “Big Windy” Greenbacks

Lake Winnipeg is a large body of water nestled in Manitoba strait north of Roseau, Minnesota. This lake produces some of the most sought after walleyes in North America. “Greenbacks” as they call them, are walleyes with a beautiful green hue to them –  almost looking transparent at times. These fish are spectacular to catch, however doing so can drive any great angler crazy trying to find them. The wind is unbearable at times and the terrain can be extremely dangerous.READ MORE

Nature’s Cold Challenge

I Love Overnight Hiking.

 

It allows me to take on longer trails, enables me to spend more time to appreciate nature and disconnect from the busy life. Winters in the mountains are usually pretty quiet. Most of the wildlife has either traveled to warmer climates or gone into hibernation, the sap of the trees and bushes made its way down to the roots until the temperature rises again in the spring. The layer of snow that covers everything dampens all sounds and creates a feeling of stillness and peacefulness. A few hikers might brave the cold for a day trip.

Tough on Nature, Soft on Skin

Since I was a kid, I’ve always had a sensitive skin.

 

I couldn’t go to the swimming pool without developing a rash from the chlorinated water. I went through spouts of eczema and allergic reactions most of my life. I cannot wear any synthetic fabric for too long and I can definitely not have polyester on my skin when involved in intense physical activity. As I’ve learned to avoid those situations altogether, it has never been a major problem for me. But it eventually changed, when I moved to Alaska and felt compelled to take on the outdoors through various sports.READ MORE

Why You Need to Prepare for Your Hike

I have been learning how to hike for a few years now. I know it may sound silly to learn how to hike, but there is so much more to hiking than throwing on a pack with some granola bars and water in it and setting off to find the best views the mountains have to offer. There is a lot of preparation and research that has to be done in order to assure you did everything possible to be prepared and return safely.

Oula with Minus33

Each Wednesday in small-town New Hampshire, I teach a booty shakin’ sassy, and sexy dance fitness class called “Oula.” The playlist is loaded with popular music with artists like Pitbull, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta, and Elle King…But unfortunately for me even if my dance moves are on fire, so is my body….and not in a good way. You know those girls who say “I don’t sweat, I sparkle?” Well, I am not one of those girls, I just straight up sweat. Like a lot. It’s hard teaching a sexy class when I feel very un-sexy! I mean, how am I supposed to channel my inner Minaj when I look like I was caught in a water-balloon ambush?
