About the Blog


Adventure is out there! The Pursuit of Life is an outdoor adventure blog that's dedicated towards providing guides on a variety of outdoor activities and wild places in the United States and Canada. This is a blog for people of all levels and experience and is not limited to any state, province or sport. Activities that are covered in this blog include hiking, mountain biking, climbing, kayaking, mountaineering, thru-hiking, caving, trail running, trekking, canoeing, ice climbing and general exploring.

When this blog was first started, the bulk of my adventures were focused in California. Since then, I spent three years in Maine and did much exploring of New England and Atlantic Canada. Currently my adventures are based within greater Chicagoland and wherever I can get to from O'Hare. Somebody once called me a "hipster traveler" because I like to travel places that are beautiful but infrequently visited.
