Test Driving the 2019 Chevy Tahoe

A weekend summer road trip with the entire family calls for four wheels that can get the job done. Enter the 355-horsepower 2019 Chevy Tahoe. As we embarked on a recent trek up the East Coast, our first thought: We felt like we could tow something weighing about 8,000 pounds—or, at least, easily haul our […]

Our Favorite Bottles of Rum You Should Be Sipping Right Now

Despite a number of incredible bottles on the market these days, rum is still very much the underdog of the sipping spirits world. When barrel aged, rum can be every bit as complex, pleasing, and collectable as bourbon, Scotch, or cognac. But this lack of attention is a good thing for us—for now, anyway. While […]

Does Montana Even Have A Summer?

Back on the trail again! Craig from Lazy B’s Pizzeria dropped Giggles, Josh, and I off at the Benchmark Trailhead, and we hopped straight onto a Ley alternate that cut off about four miles of official trail.
Not all of the alternates Ley suggests are shorter: some are supposed to be more scenic, provide access to water, or go cross-country onto the actual divide.

Hello Bob, Goodbye Earl: East Glacier to the Benchmark Trailhead

Town! The internet! Perishable foods! Sometimes it’s hard to leave. I insisted on going to the bakery one last time. Josh called MSR to figure out the problem of our new tent body not matching our old tent fly. We left our resupply grocery shopping until after lunch, and Giggles, Josh, and I didn’t walk out until mid-afternoon.
I was on the phone with my brother, holding my grizzly roll (it’s a huckleberry cinnamon roll) and trekking poles in the other hand as we found our way onto a dirt road and back into the park. ...

It’s hard to keep track of it all. Fortunately, […]
