Blog of the Week: Sole Adventure

It's been a while since I posted a blog of the week. To get that feature rolling again, I want to share a blog called Sole Adventure by Mark in Missouri. Mark and his brother grew up spending weekends with their grandparents in the country which started his passion for the outdoors. 

Mark describes the name and essence of his blog this way: 
A sole adventure is about being outdoors, exploring on foot.  It is about discovering nature and wilderness.  It is about finding new places and experiencing open spaces.  A sole adventure is also about leaving the comforts of my daily life and pushing myself to do something on my own.  Finally, a sole (soul) adventure is where I rediscover who I am, and why I am here. 

He spends his time hunting, fishing, backpacking, camping, and hiking - when he's not spending time with his wife and daughter. Mark writes about a variety of outdoor topics with an emphasis on hunting. His blog includes tips, techniques, gear reviews, and some humor. 

You guys are in for a treat this week because you are sorta getting a two-for-one special. Not only does Mark have his Sole Adventure blog, he also has a photo blog entitled Life By The Lens. It turns out Mark is quite the skilled photographer and he has some really beautiful and amazing shots on his photo blog! For those of you (and I can think of several) who are more into the photography and not so much the hunting, you will enjoy perusing Life By The Lens

Take a few minutes and visit both of Mark's blogs. You can access his photo blog directly from his outdoor blog. Mark is a great writer and talented photographer! He can be found on Twitter at @SoleAdventure.

Wow, thanks Brian! It always amazes me that people actually enjoy what I share (through either of my blogs), because I do it primarily for my own enjoyment.

I really appreciate the "shout out", and the kind words.
