A Blog About Our Common Life

Here is a journey I make each day. Time flows on this side of eternity. I have aged as gracefully as reasonable as can be be expected, and yet feel not a day older in my mind. As I begin a life in the Smoky Mountains I hope you will share my journey as well. Now, everybody runs, but back when I started, it was still sort of unusual. People called it jogging. They wore sweatbands. Guys wore really short shorts. I owned a Goretex suit of a shiny silver material that I wore in winter, a coat and pants. I probably looked like a Martian. But it was fun.

In its fullest sense, pilgrimage entails a long journey in search of qualities of moral or spiritual significance, a journey across both outer physical and inner spiritual landscapes. Pilgrims separate themselves from home and familiars, maybe joining a group of …

As many of you know, there are many apple, pear orchards throughout the Bradshaw’s that were planted in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. They still produce large crops of fruit but are subject to cool spring freezes which prevent them from producing. Ive had a chance to sample from most of these orchards through the years and all the apples are excellent tasting.

The Institute’s education model that combines academic learning with community building was developed in our Appalachian program and has been exported to other mountain regions. Over the decades, our courses have ranged from experiential learning trips and teacher training to field trips that take learning beyond the classroom into mountain wilderness areas. …

a natural elevation of the earth’s surface rising more or less abruptly to a summit, and attaining an altitude greater than that of a hill, usually greater than 2000 feet (610 meters). By Tuesday morning, we were re-packed and ready for a road trip! We set off first thing in the direction of the Peak District and after several set backs, eventually found both good rock and good routes in Cheedale. At Ravensdale, we discovered a voluntary bird ban, so re-located to Aldly Cliff, where we found the fixed anchors were being replaced (and therefore, currently removed). Then it started raining and our hopes for climbing seemed to be running out. As we walked into Chee Dale to ‘have a look’, the skies suddenly cleared and we were rewarded for our persistence!

Our attention has been drawn to the fragility of Planet Earth by the space programme. Ever since the …

Climbing The Mountain With Caleb

Posted on 07/09/2017 in mountain by

May has come and gone, and I’m thinking June has a spring in her step, much like May’s! The Kuffner Ridge, also know as the Frontier Ridge, on Mount Maudi was first climbed by Mortiz von Kuffner with Alexander Burgener, Josef Furrer, and a porter in 1887 and is one of these classic routes. This ridge is a complex buttress of exposed ridge and towers holding an entire days-worth of moderate mixed climbing and snow spines.

So I hauled up the anchor and motored round the end of Eilean an Tighe to the western side of the isthmus. This anchorage is open to the swell of the Little Minch and disturbed by the tidal movement through the Sound of Shiant. Despite this, with the light wind blowing Coral away from the islands, she felt safer. Two Danish yachts had already taken the best positions but I was able to find …

NEW YORK’S TOP FOUR-SEASON RESORT FOR FAMILIES, COUPLES, AND GETAWAY VACATION SEEKERS YEAR ROUND. The first letters with style that I saw were written by Raid and Den on the Bangor to Belfast train line as it cut through East Belfast towards the city centre. I was probably about eight or nine, in the car going from Holywood to Rathcoole to visit my granny as we did every Saturday. I knew every bit of graffiti on the route and craned my neck around in the car to get the longest possible view. I didn’t know what it was or how to do it or even why it was there, but it was clearly the best idea ever, and I made numerous failed attempts at it before finally getting some guidance at the age of thirteen.

This beautiful park is located just five miles east of Nephi, UT in Salt Creek …
