Call it a convergence of coincidences. We had a beautiful day on Sunday, which made me start thinking about future trips. I ran across this on the Gear Junkie's website, and it's another crazy Idaho adventure by Boisean Steve Graepel, who also wrote about a bike and packraft trip in the Owyhees.
Obviously he doesn't mind suffering. He hiked rim to rim in Hells Canyon in 36 hours, which included 42 miles and 18,000 vertical feet of climbing.
Maybe we can't follow in his footsteps, but we can at least use his trip for motivation to roll our own adventures. They don't just happen, you have to make them happen.
