1.  Not leaving your plans with a reliable person.  You should tell someone where you’re running, including the trail, distance,…

Finding Shelter in an Emergency

Beyond clothing shelter is anything that protects a person from environmental hazards such as rain, wind, lightning, snow, cold, insects, and more.   Shelter helps you maintain a 98.6 body temperature, stay dry, and warm.   When most people think of shelter in the wilderness they imagine a tent, spend enough time outdoors and you’ll find that in most situations you aren’t carrying or have easy access to a tent.  Think about the last time you hiked, were on the summit of a mountain, skied, or…

How a Pregnant Climber Summited Mt. Rainier

Mountaineering while pregnant isn’t most people’s idea of fun, my circle of friends is different.  Several pregnant friends have recently asked me if it’s ok to hike at altitude or climb while pregnant, my wife Sirima and I get asked this because friends have heard about our mountaineering experience climbing Mt. Rainer when she was 12 weeks pregnant.  My first comment is I’m a guy, climber, and survival expert, but that doesn't make me an expert on pregnancies at altitude…

Hi Ali,


Thanks for the nice welcome!  That is not a picture of Shasta, a mere 2, 100 hill in Fremont, CA.  Mission Peak.  It was a training hike.  I appreciate the offer to post my "Climb For Hope 2011" to benefit 100% the Children's Hunger Fund.  This will help starving and impoverished children from around the world.  I have a goal of $5,000 and every little bit helps.  I will be climbing Mt. Rainer in August 2011.  Thanks again and I look forward to getting to know the FitClimb community better in the coming months/years.  Best regards.  Mark Rickert
