For interesting articles, and some humor and some inspiration, we like to check out Semi-Rad; especially since they often highlight exactly what we've thought when we were hiking on the trails.
It's a website created by Brendan Leonard who, in addition to running the Semi-Rad site, is a contributing editor at Adventure Journal and a columnist at Outside. He's also had stories in Backpacker, National Geographic Adventure, Outside, Men’s Journal, Sierra, Adventure Cyclist, and other publications.
One of the reasons that we like Leonard's musings is because he "created Semi-Rad.com to as a channel for those of us who aren’t elite climbers, skiers, ultrarunners, and alpinists - the folks who love to get out there, but maybe don’t take it too seriously." Like us, we love the outdoors, but can't live and breathe it every minute because we have other things going on in our lives.
Here’s a couple of hiking cartoons that we especially liked. You should really check out the Semi-Rad site!
