We went fishing near the North Fork of The St. Joe River, Mountain biking on the Hiawatha Trail, and trail riding up to Shefoot Mountain and down through Bear Creek. You'll read about some gear, some experiences, and some sweet locations. 

DJI's Phantom 4 Just Dropped

As many of you may know (or maybe not) the DJI Phantom 4 just hit the market. Not only is this an amazing quad-copter, but the new capabilities are to die for!

Here are just a few from the list (Found Here)

  • Avoid obstacles automatically.
  • Track moving subjects automatically using ActiveTrack.
  • TapFly lets you fly with a tap of the finger.
  • Smart Return Home allows the Phantom to avoid obstacles as it returns home.
  • 28 minute maximum flight time, maximum control range of 3.1mi (5km).
  • Maximum speed of 44mph (72kmh).
  • Integrated gimbal for greater camera stability and smoother footage.
  • Optimized Vision Positioning System raises positioning altitude up to 10 meters.

This is game-changing tech that DJI has put into their new Phantom 4  will bring many new customers great success. I'll be interested to see how the first batch of quad-copters does in the filed. I'll be one of the first to say "I want one" when I see some of the customer reviews and hopefully some stunning footage from the new lens design on the attached 4K camera. Keep an eye out for more info on the subject as we move through the first stage of "customer testing" on my Facebook page at or subscribe to my blog below!

Skinny Dipper Hot Springs!

About a week ago (Ryan you're welcome), some friends of mine and I drove about 1 hour north of Boise, ID to retreat to a heavily traveled hot springs called "Skinny Dipper". Now you might be thinking "Why would someone name it Skinny Dipper?". I would have to answer "Find out for yourself!"

There are several hot springs in Idaho that are kept up by the locals, and many more 100% natural hot springs that can be visited as well. In fact, according to "Idaho has the most usable hot springs pools in the nation, with approximately 130 ‘soakable’ out of 340." This means 130 out of 340 are at a temperature bearable for the human skin! Although I think most women would add a few more degrees of heat to the highest 'soakable' tempurature ;)

If you have the chance to go visit any of the hot springs in Idaho, the suggested items for an absolutely amazing trip are as follows:


bathing suit (optional)



and finally all the friends you can drag along with you! 

The winter months are fantastic for winter sports here in Idaho. You can visit any of the 18 Ski Resorts located all throughout Idaho. (Find a list of skiing options here) After a long day of skiing, take yourself over to one of the 130 'soakable' hot springs and enjoy a nice relaxing evening cooling down (or heating up)!
