Trail Post


The Trail Post Project

I am a big fan of hand written mail. In an attempt to revitalize this age old past time (which is quickly being lost to web-based communications) I’d like to reboot a post card project. Send in post cards with words of inspiration to get others outside and enjoying nature and I will post selected cards to the website.

Goal: The goal is to inspire others to hit the trail and see new places! Nature can be a much better medication than the couch.

How you get involved: Tell me about yourself! Send in post cards with positive words of inspiration for others to get outside. Tell me your story, tell me about your favorite adventure, tell me what makes you keep climbing, hiking, kayaking, or however you move through nature. Send in your wishes for friends or family to get outside, tell me about an adventure you hope to do in the future. Post your real name, trail name, or leave it anonymous, anything goes, just be creative!

The Re-Post: I will select  a few post cards every month to be displayed on the page below. I look forward to receiving your trail posts!

Catch Me If You Can! Lets Play – Hike and Seek!


Hike and Seek!

I am launching a new project called Trail Post. Details can be found here: Trail Post Project

What Is this about? As a part of the project launch, I am instituting a challenge to my friends, family, and local outdoor enthusiasts for a fun outdoor activity to encourage hiking, a little mischief, and prize-winning!

How to play? Your job as hikers will be to come find me. My job will be to provide prizes to the first 20 people who find me using the spot tracker (link provided below).

When, Where, How?! 

  • Date: Sunday, December 11th 2016
  • Time: 7am Start to 3pm Finish.
  • Location: Phoenix (AZ) Area Mountains – SPOT Tracker link

The Mischief! 

As most of you do not know what I look like, I will be wearing all green head to toe. Trust me, you will NOT miss me!

What happens when you find me?

Call me out by name: “GoatManMike” and tell me you are playing “Hike and Seek” that’s it! I will be hiking several places throughout the day, so don’t expect me to stay in one spot. The first person to find me at each location gets a bigger prize (of course), and then each seeker after will get smaller subsequent prizes.

I hope to see you all out there on the trail and I look forward to seeing you participate in the Trail Post Project!
