Exploring Middle Fork Applegate River

Posted on Jun 8, 2015 in Adventure, Entertainment, GoPro


Some fun river exploring on a hot summer day after church. I didn’t want to end up “working” so I left my DSLR at home and used my iPhone 6+. For the video I used my GoPro Hero 3 and Feiyu Tech G4 gimbal.

DIY Carts for Track & Field

After making the DIY Javelin cart, I felt inspired to make some more carts for our track gear.

DIY Javelin Cart

Posted on Jun 1, 2015 in DIY

Took me about 7 hours over the course of 3 days and less then $70 in supplies.


I designed it to rotate so that it could be stored in our track shed.

Dry Baking with an Alcohol Stove

Posted on Jan 3, 2015 in DIY, Gear

Inspired by Shug’s recent post to YouTube, I bought a Fancee Feest alcohol stove and tried some dry baking. It worked out pretty good so I think I may need to try this on my next backpacking trip.

Fancee Feest Stove with simmer ring
3 in baking pan
Heet (yellow bottle) alcohol
Backcountry titanium pot (like this)
Cheap pie crust pan (cut up for spacer in mug)
Pancake batter (cause I had it already)
Chocolate chips

Used 3/4 oz of fuel for about a 13.5 minute burn. Next time I think I will try a little less and shoot for 11 minute bake time.

I baked with dried cherries first, but chocolate chips were better :)
I bet plain with honey would be good too.
