Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

We love the outdoors and are constantly looking for new adventures. Spending time in the mountains and being immersed in the outdoors is what makes us feel whole. Sometimes the extra work it takes to commit to visiting a certain location or taking the road less traveled can be dissuading. But almost every time, the decision to “just go for it” and start out on an adventure is more than worth the effort. Here are some quick tips on how to embark on an adventure of your own: 1.

If You Never Try, You’ll Never Know

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

We may have an idea of how something feels, such as rock climbing or skydiving. Maybe we saw it in a movie once or a friend painted the perfect picture for us: an experience so vivid we felt like we were present the entire time. But the truth is that you will never know how something feels until you actually try it. I’ve adopted the “say yes to everything” mantra, and it’s changed my life in ways I had never imagined. I’ve climbed to the top of El Capitan in…read more

Endless Adventure in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

McCarthy, Alaksa — a community of 200 people — is the perfect starting point for an Alaska-sized adventure. This is where my boyfriend, Jason Denley, and I call home during the summers, guiding for St. Elias Alpine Guides. An end of the road town, McCarthy is nestled in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Summer began as we were spoiled with 10 cloudless days, skiing and climbing with fellow guides on the Upper Baldwin Glacier in the St. Elias section of the park. My favorite climb on this trip was…read more

Posted by in Ambassador, Deuter USA Blog Posts

Some people think, or have been told, that when they become parents their outdoor lifestyle inevitably slows or halts altogether. That’s just not the case- nor does it have to be. I encourage parents to continue their outdoor lifestyle and teach their tykes to embrace it along the way. There are so many things young tykes learn when out on adventures. They aren’t just trudging up a hill, just sleeping in a tent or just skiing down a slope. Tykes are not only learning about the natural world around them,…read more

‘Hike’ is a 4 letter word

Posted by in Deuter USA Blog Posts

There are some 4 letter words that are off-limits when children are around.  Instead of using the word “hike”, we have created the alluring “adventure”.  It’s a subtle difference that describes outdoor activities that coincidentally involve a walk from A to B.  It’s become more about the journey, less about the destination. We’ve put many miles on our Kid Comfort II.  At some fuzzy stage between 2 and 3 years of age there seems to be a surge of both independence and physiological weight, which changes the parameters when planning…read more
