I am attempting to hike the Calendar Year Triple Crown, which means I am hiking the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail all within January to Decmeber of the same year.

I have real-time mapping tracking my progress, as well as (ir)regular blog posts about my adventures. Live vicariously through me or let my journey inspire you to act upon your dreams.

Woot Cavern

Huge cave found north of Hondo, Texas. Never before explored. Massive formations.

Cave discovery went viral with thousands of shares, countless views, front page headline news, and featured on Texas Public Radio.

Devil's Sinkhole

The Appalachian Trail

Follow my progress in real time as I hike the Appalachian Trail (AT), Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and Continental Divide Trail (CDT). I am attempting the Calendar Year Triple Crown where I hike all three trails from January to December in the same year.

You can even message me directly from the map, and I will receive it on the trail!

Lee White made a historic climb of Dome Pit in Natural Bridge Caverns and discovered the first new passage in Natural Bridge in over 50 years. We documented that climb with drones flying in the cave as he climbed, in-cave video interviews, and great photos of that expedition and of the amazing passage and colorful formations found beyond.

My customized vertical system that allows easy switching among Frog, Rope Walker, Mitchell, and Texas systems, complete with diagrams and detailed assembly and sizing instructions.

Geary Schindel wanted the Bexar Grotto‘s HydroGeo committee to secretly give him $5,000. When we refused, he falsely accused us of misappropriation of funds, fraud, and laundering money. He then used those false accusations to threaten us with attorneys.

I was powerless to do anything about it, so I just sat in my seat, cringing as I watched the movie unfold. It was the loneliest day of my life.
