I originally started blogging in 2012 with hopes of sharing my experiences and knowledge with visitors to my website. As anyone can probably guess, that adventure came to a grinding halt due to time constraints (read: life in general). It has been about 3 years since I shared my experience and knowledge and I find myself in a place now to pick up where I left off. As you can see, I have a new domain now as well as a new website format that is super easy to navigate and is mobile friendly!

My commitment to my website visitors is simple..... This is the space where you will get to learn more about me in my professional and personal life. The personal side is something I typically don't share with people I don't know, but I am willing to leave the door cracked open just a little. I think by sharing a little bit of my personal life, you can get to know a little more about me away from my professional life. I am sure you are thinking "But wait, can't you do that on your social platforms, Jason?" I could, but, to be able to tell lengthy stories and share several links in my writings seems a lot more organized and appealing to the reader instead of reading a long post that people will eventually just scroll past. Plus, this type of media allows me to keep my writing skills as sharp as possible.

Sequoia National Forest - July 14th, 2017

I recently returned from an AMAZING trip to Sequoia National Park. I didn't spend a lot of time in this beautiful national park, but the time I did spend there was unforgettable. I've only seen the giant sequoias in publications like National Geographic or Time Magazine. During my trip, I stopped to visit the The General Grant Tree, The General Sherman Tree, and Crescent Meadow. All three destinations were filled with tourists but at almost every turn, tourists were warned about bears in the area. I wasn't concerned about the bears since I carried my scented foods in a tiny bear canister. Whew! 

When I wasn't hiking and traveling to the different areas of the park, my camp was set up at Sunset Campground. The amenities at this campground were great. To be honest, I was so surprised to see actual plumbing as most campgrounds offer toilets with vaulted plumbing and MAYBE a spigot for clean water. 

I definitely want to go back to Sequoia National Park but next time I want to travel in an RV so I can cruise around the entire park and visit the other destinations I wasn't able to squeeze in. I highly recommend a visit to the park as it's a great opportunity to disconnect from the daily grind and reacquaint yourself with Mother Nature. Thanks for stopping by!
