BARCOM - I am Grateful for Adventure

  • Leave No Trace Over Likes (2016-Oct-05) [The Out Bound]
    I play the Instagram game, I’ll admit it. I’ve been known to set up my tent strategically for a glimpse of REI’s name in the photo. Recently, as I’m scrolling for wanderlust inspiration, I see that a reputable outdoor company has shared a follower’s photo of their tent set against a breathtaking alpine lake. Wait… why is that tent pitched so close to the water? Why is it covering grass instead of rock? Far too often, photos that ignore Leave No Trace are being featured on social media. I feel strongly that we must reject the promotion of illegal camping and poor decision making for the sake of that hashtag-worthy shot.

  • A Portlander’s Guide to Backpacking Glacier (2016-Oct-04) [Uncage the Soul]
    Hey Portlanders…feeling a little crowded out in some of our favorite outdoor habitats? Looking for an adventure that’s a little more exotic but doesn’t require a TSA line? Ask any Portlander what they love about where they live and they will probably mention how close Mt Hood, and the Columbia Gorge, and the Oregon Coast are…but what you will never hear is that Glacier National Park is an easy overnight train ride away. It’s no secret, but it seems to have been quietly overlooked in the commotion of all things Portlandia. Seriously, jump on the train in the late afternoon and you will find yourself at the gateway to the staggeringly beautiful Glacier National Park early the next morning. It’s that easy. And to assist you with this new addition to your bucket list, here’s a simple step by step guide to the backpacking trip of your dreams.

24 hours, 7kg of luggage, what would you pack?

* Adventure Kit List (2015-May-27) [Alastair Humphreys]
If I was told to pack, with 10 minutes notice, for a mystery adventure somewhere in the world, these would be the essentials I would fling into my pack every time.

  • All Burnt Out: Extinguishing Old Assumptions around Outdoor Cooking (2016-Apr-29) [The UPLOADS Project]
    Read on for an insightful practitioner’s first-hand perspective on ways to address some of the issues raised around campcraft incidents, as highlighted in the UPLOADS 12 month national incident dataset…

  • School’s out – so let’s reclaim the great outdoors for our children (2016-Jun-26) [Herald Scotland]
    I often think my children’s existences are the reverse of my own childhood. Growing up on a farm, I used to roam the outdoors on school evenings and ordinary weekends; and it was to the city we went on holiday, to exotic Newcastle, Edinburgh or even London. I do the opposite with my own children. I take them to the wilds for the holidays, where we pretend for a while that they are farm-friendly, country kids.
    Most surveys show that today’s parents recognise that something has changed since their own childhoods, when – whether they grew up in town or country, they would routinely be thrown out their back door and let to play in the streets, parks or local patches of nature and wasteland.
