Kodiak Island Car Rental Options

For an out-of-the-way island off the coast of Alaska, there were more Kodiak Island car rental options than we expected. The Kodiak Airport had two national rental car options (Avis and Budget) and both had reasonable “Alaska” rates. We found a great coupon code and ended up renting with Avis. We discovered a third option in the car lot called Rent-a-Heap – which is perfect for adventuring! Rental Car Pickup We picked up our car from the Kodiak Benny Benson State Airport (more commonly known as the Kodiak Airport) immediately after our flight landed. It is impossible to miss the rental car...

Where are the women in country music?

Today, I’m going to depart from my typical type of post and focus on gender equality in country music. If you weren’t aware, there is a startling lack of women in country music these days.

However, this year when we hung up our reality enveloped us with a bit of sadness, a glimmer of hope, and a reminder that our infertility does not own us. You see, this is the first time we have had to celebrate Father’s Day (and Mother’s Day) after making the...

If you follow me on social media you may have noted that I have posted a few pictures like the one above. This orthopedic walking book has been my constant companion for the last six weeks. As you can imagine, I’ve not been able to hike and have had to pause my participation in the challenge. As much as I want to get back on the trail right now, I’ve made the decision to rest and properly address my ankle injury. The...

Why you should be championing #MonumentsForAll

This slideshow requires JavaScript. Monuments Under Review Today I’m joining my fellow outdoor recreation and public lands bloggers to speak out in support of national monuments through the #MonumentsForAll movement. The movement is one of many in response to President Trump’s (it still hurts to type that) call for Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to review 27 National Monument designations. These unique lands and waters should be available for public enjoyment now and for future generations. “Sending a signal that protections for our shared history, culture, and natural treasures are temporary would set a terrible precedent. National monuments have been shown...
