Squamish is beautiful, but I've lived a lot of different places over the years and have always been amazed by the local adventures I can have without driving. From biking to running to kayaking and even to backcountry skiing; it might not always be the best snow, or the sickest trail, but being able to head right out your door makes up for a lot. Check out the link in my bio (www.thecarfreechallenge.com) for more info on the #carfreechallenge and join me in pledging to pursue local adventures in 2018! I'm pledging to gain 150,000 vertical feet without driving, but you can set any goal you want (in vertical gain or distance) on the website. Share your car free adventures with the hashtag #carfreechallenge! @patagonia @backcountrycom @outsidemagazine @rei @salomon @protectourwinters @natgeoadventure @clifbar @thenorthface

Making the most of some classic coastal conditions
The first sunset of 2018 put on a nice show over the Tantalus range. The snow quality is a bit temperamental here, but the terrain and scenery never disappoints.
It's cold and rainy in Squamish right now, so my #carfreechallenge is going to be a soggy run on snowy trails...so here's a picture from when we used to walk to this waterfall from our house back in Vermont! Please consider joining me in the #carfreechallenge for 2018! Check the link in my bio for more information and do your part to reduce the environmental impacts of the ways we choose to recreate.
#carfreechallenge In 2018, I'm pledging to travel at least 150,000 vertical feet by human power (bike, ski, run, kayak, whatever) *without* driving. I.e. from home or by mass transit. Outdoor adventure enthusiasts are a pretty environmentally conscious group of people and we struggle with the impacts of the travel involved. There's nothing wrong with taking a big trip or two, or driving to a trailhead every now and then, but I'm challenging everyone to spend 2018 focusing on finding adventures close to home. Check out the link in my profile to learn more about the #carfreechallenge and share your adventures with the hashtag! I've found a way to whitewater kayak (of all things!) without driving from every place I've lived over the last five years. It might not be world class, and I might have to carry my kayak a few blocks down the street, but there's a lot to be said for not driving. I realize not everyone lives in places that are super conducive to this, but there is more information about outdoor recreation available now than ever before. If you can't find something you can do in your area without driving, DM me -- I'll personally help you find some trails in the area.
