Cruising on the Navigator of the Seas

Susan and I will be on a ballroom dancing cruise for the next week. We have the Danger Beacon out on our balcony, so the Tracking map will show our location real time.

Mt. Rainier Coming Soon

In State Highpoints by Robert Danger Byrd / February 15, 2014 / 0 Comments

So it won’t be long before I’ll be on Mt Rainier once again. But this time it’s not for a summit but for advanced mountaineering training and extreme winter camping experience.

This is the 62lb pack I carried up Mt Baker last year. It was a 7 day expedition so a lot of food was required.

Rob’s Gear Guide!

In Gear by Robert Danger Byrd / February 9, 2014 / 0 Comments

Since I am often trusting my life to my gear on these adventures, I choose every piece of gear carefully. I spend countless hours researching, reading blogs and trip reports, talking to guides and climbers to find best, safest, lightest, most reliable gear money can buy. I will often buy several different brands of an item and test them myself to determine which does the job to my satisfaction. I never buy the cheapest, always the best performing.

So I am currently working on a gear guide with the items I have chosen and field tested and found to be up to the task so you can benefit from my efforts.
