Turn UP The Awesome.
Turn DOWN The Suck.

So, now I’ve climbed a few mountains and written a few blog stories. All of a sudden, I fancy myself a hiker and a writer.  I never imagined putting so much focus into something.  Every mountain has it’s own story and I guess that’s what we’re all here for.  All it took was climbing one mountain and I was hooked.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy reading about these adventures as much as I’m enjoying adventuring them.  I’m having a blast writing and photographing my way to becoming an Adirondack 46er, a master hiker and a world traveler and I appreciate you being here to share it with me.  Keep checking back for new stories to witness the continued adventures of Joe Wilderness.

My Most Recent Hike

Please repeat after me. There's only one rule:

I WILL NOT LOSE

So, WTF are the Adirondack 46 anyway?  The 46 High Peaks are (obviously) 46 summits that are 4000 feet or higher.  My goal is to complete my 46th High Peak in the summer of 2021.  Along with my hiking partner Joel, aka Johnny Mountaintop, we’ll be hiking throughout 2020 and 2021 to our final destination – a sunrise hike of Mt. Skylight, our choice for our 46er finish.  This is our big focus.  We’re working simultaneously on multiple sets of mountains and trying to sneak in some big international climbs too, but becoming Forty-Sixers is our absolute top priority.  And if you know me, once I set my mind to something, failure is not an option.  Like the great Jay-Z says: “There’s only one rule: I Will Not Lose”.

so what's next?
