Hawaiian Island Adventure by Todd Moen
Posted on July 28, 2016

It’s been Hawaii appreciation week for the past two weeks on the Live Your Adventure blog. We’ve already profiled the bonefishing paradise our Sport Shop guides found on this undisclosed Hawaiian Island, but it was also a destination ripe in adventure potential. So today, Todd Moen of Catch Magazine presents us with Eddie Bauer guide Lel Tone’s personal perspective on the aloha experience. With many guiding and fitness accolades to her credit, including a championship on Ultimate Survival Alaska and an award as one of the world’s ten best guides, we figured Tone would make the most of her first ever Hawaii trip. We were right.

A state of Aloha. P: Watt

Between guiding in Alaska, skiing in Switzerland, and paddleboarding in Baja, Eddie Bauer guide Lel Tone has ticked a ton of active, adventure travel miles. But until a few months back—when she joined fishing guides Andrew Bennett and Adrienne Comeau on a bonefishing and paddleboarding mission to an undisclosed location—she had never experienced the Hawaiian Islands. The culture, the vistas, the bonefishing and the chill, infectious aloha vibe she experienced set the hook and made the islands one of her new favorite destinations.

Each month we’ve been highlighting specific conservation projects we’ve backed with American Forests that focus on reforestation and recovery efforts as part of our greater One Tree Initiative.

Andrew Bennett has chased trophy fish around the globe with his fly rod in hand, so when he picked the easy access of an undisclosed Hawaiian location for his next bonefishing trip, we knew it would either be really, really good or really, really exotic. It turned out the trip and the location were a little bit of both. In his latest global fishing report, the Sport Shop guide reports from a prime Pacific fishery with a distinct cultural feel, where he saw the biggest bonefish of his life.

Posted on July 18, 2016

The 50 Peaks Challenge took the northeast by storm, ticking summits of Mt. Marcy, Mt. Mansfield and Mt. Washington in New York, Vermont and New Hampshire. After successful climbs in the Adirondacks, Green Mountains, the White Mountains and in Maine, the team stats hit a tally of 27 peaks with a grand total of 24,676 vertical feet in 16 days. They jumped back in the van and completed a long drive through Eastern Canada then landed in the Huron Mountains of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. In episode three we look back, tracking the travels and perspective of Melissa Arnot and Maddie Miller through this populated but mountainous state.
