I decided to do an article about the history of snowshoeing. It was definitely interesting for me!
Traveling by snowshoe is an ancient practice made easier by modern technology. Putting something on your feet to spread out your weight over snow is a fairly simple idea, and today's snowshoes descend from technology used for thousands of years. Snowshoes make it easier to experience the crisp ...

My short trip to where Hamilton and Burr met with pistols really made me want to learn (or relearn) more about the duelists and the dueling grounds.
On the morning of July 11, 1804, Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr left Manhattan in small boats with their companions. They were heading to New Jersey to duel with pistols. The rules of the affair...

More things found in the woods.
A few days after my post about Roaming in the Ramapos, I went back to the Ramapo Mountains to get some fall foliage views and photos. I also decided to head farther down the road from where I turne...

"These two articles at the Mail on Sunday and Telegraph continue the unfortunate trend of shoddy climate reporting in the two periodicals, particularly from David Rose. They suffer from cherry picking short-term data while ignoring the long-term human-caused trends, misrepresenting climate research, repeating long-debunked myths, and inventing IPCC meetings despite being told by climate scientists that these claims are pure fiction."
Both UK periodicals focus on short-term noise and ignore the rapid long-term Arctic sea ice death spiral

New Head First post on the ruins of the old city of Ayutthaya!

It feels pretty good to look through pictures of an awesome trip like this.
Ayutthaya was the capital of the Siamese kingdom from 1350 to 1767. For much of that time the city was widely known as a prosperous center of trade and culture. In 1767, Burmese soldiers and artill...

The 1777 Battle of Millstone, sometimes called the Battle of Somerset Court House, was one fight in a series of engagements known as the Forage War.
On January 20, 1777, colonial militiamen waded across the icy Millstone River in water above their knees. The maneuver enabled them to get around the cannons their enemy had set up at a bridge, def...

I’m going to start looking for a new #Wordpress theme for headfirstadventures.com . Any suggestions?

I’d prefer a free theme, and I’m not looking for a huge set of features so I don’t think that will be a problem. I’m thinking of something simple: a front page with menus and an excerpt and picture from the most recent story or two, ideally easy to read on a mobile device.

Right now I have an infinitely scrolling homepage with a three-choice menu at the top. There is a small About page and a comprehensive Index page that doesn’t seem all that reader-friendly. This worked when I had a few stories, but now that I have a lot it seems clumsy. I would rather have the home page introduce the website and have easy-to-navigate menus and an improved index that isn’t just a long list of links.

I don't always know what I will find when I head into the woods.

It turns out that a big concrete structure I climbed into was supposed to be a septic tank, but it was never used because the Civilian Conservation Corps did not finish building the camp it was supposed to service.
While hiking near Pine Meadow Lake in Harriman State Park, we stumbled across a big abandoned concrete structure. I climbed onto the the structure to get a better sense of what it was. The rectangu...
