Tim’s Land is up for Sustainable Tree Farm of the Year! Help us out and Vote!

If you’re a regular reader, you know Tim’s tree farm better than any other place I’ve written about. I’ve waxed poetic over so many great nights spent biking and camping around the property. It’s our backyard, and a little slice of green in Massachusetts that does a lot for the environment, and sustainable forestry in the state.

Now we need your help- the Eve-Cowles Tree Farm is up for Sustainable Tree Farm of the Year! Can you take a minute and cast a vote? Here’s the link.


Thanks, readers!

Israel Part 2 Is Coming!

I wanted to have Israel Part 2 out last week, and I was sure I was going to do gear lists and load-outs for Kelley and I and our upcoming trip to Iceland… but Iceland is in four days and I’m deep in the think-tank for grad research!

The pressure is on!

You’ll have to bear with me! Iceland content will start rolling and, hopefully, I’ll get the Israel Part 2 post out in anti-chronological order. What a great summer.

Keep Researching, Max!

Go Lael!

Lael Wilcox just won the Trans-Am Race. Miraculously, she’s the first American to ever win the race, and has broken the women’s record by over three days. Her time is the second-fastest in the race’s history, behind the time set by Mike Hall, who is in first place in the Tour Divide at the time of this writing (that race isn’t over yet!).

Lael is a big cycling idol of Kelley and I. She’s an absolute beast! Congratulations, Lael!
