Screw New Years Resolutions.. Make Goals for 2017

Forget about them! Resolutions are absolutely pointless. We all (myself included) make these unobtainable requests of ourselves to become the perfect version of ourselves… overnight. That is simply not how it should work, yet we do this every single year and are left disappointed by the end of February. Of course, the time of year never helps since most of us wish to be healthier and more active, in the coldest and shortest days of the year. This is my case to rebrand the whole New Years Resolution letdown into simply, “Goals for the year.” What’s the difference? Resolutions are more …

Visit Achensee Lake in Tirol, Austria

Simply beautiful. This is one of those places I’ve been, where the words to describe my first view of this place are difficult to formalize. Sounds cliché, and it totally is, but I still stand by my statement. Our taxi driver picked the four of us up from the train station and headed north, towards the mountains. The small towns we passed through were so tight, I barely thought one car could pass through, let alone us and the ones he kept passing. The road began upward from the valley, along these winding mountain roads that

Featured on Travel Channel | Cliff Jumping

For the life of a wannabe adventure/athlete/filmmaker, very view opportunities actually come from my YouTube videos that I spend hours making. This, however, is one of those rare moments when something usually too good to be true, actually turned out to be an epic opportunity! Back in early August of 2015, I received a message on YouTube from a “producer” from Los Angeles, telling me how she is shooting a show for The Travel Channel. She proceeded to explain that she saw my cliff jumping video and wanted to know if I would like to participate in one of their …

Adventures in OKC | Pt. 2 [Video]

All work and no play makes Zach a dull boy… or at least I try to think like that. I was sent down to Oklahoma City for two more trips since my first video, and decided to explore everything OKC has to offer. Not an hour after I landed, I was headed over to Wake Zone Cable Park for a sick session. The guys there were ridiculously good. Between the food and work, I was also able to catch some time in the gym. ClimbUp OKC is a must for any travelers passing through. It’s such a unique experience climbing …

Kayak Camping | Afterwork Adventure [Video]

After work, on a Wednesday afternoon in the summer, we packed up the kayaks for our first kayak camping experience down at Seldon Neck State Park in Connecticut. The campsite was absolutely incredible and made for a night I will never forget. Cherry on top… made it into work the following day by 7:30AM! It seems these days that activities like hiking, camping, skiing, mountain biking, and outdoor climbing are reserved for those “free” hours between 5PM on Friday to 5PM on Sunday. We pretty much only allot ourselves a 48 hour block to have fun each week, which most …

Finishing The Appalachian Trail [Pictures]

My friend, Christian, accomplished a dream of his, which was to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. We were lucky enough to share that moment with him at the finish of the trail, on the summit of Mount Katahdin. The Appalachian Trail begins at Springer Mountain, Georgia, travels 2,198 miles to the summit of Mount Katahdin, Maine. It passes through 14 states: Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.
