Off to Bend, Oregon

Just a quick note to let regular readers know that The Adventure Blog will be back on hiatus for the rest of the week as I jet off to Bend, Oregon for some mountain biking, hiking, and product testing. It is looking like it will be a pretty busy couple of days, so it seems unlikely that I’ll get the chance to update the site while I’m away. That said, a new episode of The Adventure Podcast will be debuting later today and I’ll try to schedule a post to remind regular listeners that it is available for tomorrow. 

While in Bend, I’ll be the guest of a prominent outdoor brand and testing out new gear that will be coming soon. I can’t say much more than that yet, mostly because I don’t even know for sure what I’ll be seeing and testing. That said, I’ll share updates on all of the new products when I can, posting thoughts when given clearance.
At the moment, it is a relatively quiet time in the outdoor adventure and exploration community. The fall Himalaya climbing season is starting to wind down some, with the major commercial teams now preparing to head home. There are still quite a few smaller expeditions that we’ll be keeping an eye on however, so if anything major happens I’ll try to share an update. Otherwise, I’ll be back home over the weekend and will resume regular posting again on Monday.  Until then, enjoy the week and get outside and have an adventure or two.
