Champagne on #Appalachian  Trial to celebrate? Sacrilege, say park rangers who want to kick hikers off the peak. I say, the peak is not a human being nor a god. Celebrating is fun. Let us have more joy in the outdoors.   
Faced with increasing crowds and partylike behavior by a few, officials are threatening to reroute the Appalachian Trail so that it does not end atop Maine’s highest peak.

‪#‎Peru‬. Bags packed for #MachuPicchu . Leaving Friday. Below see my favorite account of climbing up to Sun Gate and Theroux doesn't even describe the citadel. He leaves the unimaginable to our imagination. Thanks ‪#‎ATTA‬ and #PromPerú Oficial. I'm thrilled. Will post here and everywhere. http://www.amazon.com/The-Old-Patagonian-Express-Americas/dp/039552105X

Is backpacking a dying sport? Under 30s reject being "on the loose." This surprises me. 
Younger people don’t seem interested in this outdoors tradition.

Fisherman's lunch in Homer, #Alaska. 2 weeks, sun 24/7. I never want to leave. Bears, saltwater kayaking, mountain hikes. It's going too fast. At La Baleen, our favorite restaurant on the famous Homer Spit.

This Is It! After years of teasing Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch is up for sale for an astonishing $100m. Alas, the animals are gone. Not sure about the famous train.

The rides are gone, the elephants are gone and Bubbles is certainly gone, but the history - both bad and good - remains.

Traveling in Costa Rica is a fun and it's one of the best destinations in the world for nature and wildlife. Just don't expect cheap Central America rates
