The Sheltowee trail runs 323 miles from northern boundary of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Rowan County, Kentucky to the southern boundary of Big South Fork NRRA in Scott County, Tennessee. The STA, is a 501(c)3 non-profit association with the purpose of achieving the formation of a highly functional cross-state recreation trail. This includes trail maintenance, building, and markings.
The most important part of gear repair isn’t the gear itself, it’s you. Yes, even through all the ups and downs, cursing, and joy that you and your gear share, at the end of the day the gear is selfish. You invest all this money in it, the least it could do is dry itself out and quietly make its way to a cool (50-70 degree), dry closet and hang itself up, patiently awaiting the next opportunity to carry your means of survival.
Climbing as a sport has been growing increasingly popular in recent years, thanks in part to the release of professionally made documentaries on the sport. 2018 was a landmark year for climbing films, with three climbing films out for widespread release. I had the opportunity to see Reel Rock 13, the Dawn Wall, and Free Solo in theaters and thoroughly enjoyed each of them.
