Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google, and found that it
is truly informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.
I will be grateful if you continue this in future. Numerous people will be benefited from your
I and my two son’s were treated to an amazing adventure with Jeff in the Escalante wilderness. When I called Jeff about wanting something more than an excursion I never dreamed we could experience so much, learn so much or appreciate so much on a what one would think of as a simple backpacking trip. It will always be a time we will never forget. Thank you Jeff for everything you shared and for sharing yourself most of all.
I hope we cross paths again, Marc
Jeff is a special soul who’s connection with the land around him is contagious. He expressed such a tangible love for the skills he shared that I will never forget my time with him. I will definitely draw on this experience for years to come, and make it a point to share another journey with him very soon!
My wife and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary in Boulder, Utah, and were treated to two days of break-taking hiking trips during which Jeff led us to places we never imagined going to by ourselves. HIs expertise and knowledge of the area were simply amazing. Not only did we leave with a new appreciation of the beauty of the area, we left having gained a new friend. Thank you for an exceptional time with you! Until we meet again!
Jeff and Matt guided me to a remote location with a trailhead along hole in the rock road. Jeff and Matt have outdoor IQs that are off the charts. For instance, it was fascinating watching Matt make a spindle and stick for creating a coal to start a fire out of a yucca plant stalk. The knowledge they have about what water is safe to drink, UV rays effect on water, tying lines up to keep food away from mice, proper technique for hiking on slick rock safely, and saving my tail when my filter failed was quite valuable. I had brought a phone with the usgs map and a route on it, which was, as it turned out, a poor and inefficient route. At the time, it was a comfort thing for me. Jeff pointed out, “We don’t know the source of that route.” He was right! Jeff and Matt read the land and their topo map to successfully figure out the best route in and out of our location. If you decide to go on a trip with these outdoorsmen, leave the phone at home.
