The Greatest Adventure

The Expedition experience with the MCC was one of the greatest adventures of my lifetime. I have worked plenty of years in the outdoors, but I have never enjoyed it as much as I have with my expedition crew.


Week 1: Northern Rockies, 7/17/16 - 7/23/16

The first week was a challenge. Yet was fun.


On our final day of work on our first week’s project, I felt that we had made a very tangible change to the local environment. That few miles of fence that we had taken out were a few miles reclaimed to Nature. One could look to see what work was still to be had—which would be somewhat discouraging, but I am of the opinion that the positive aspect of any given situation should be dwelled upon. And we truly had many things to be proud of that first week.

At times the work can dominate everything, and it becomes easy to forget just how ridiculous and hilarious this all is.

“This week we learned about how asking for help is useful and how for some people it takes a lot of courage to do. Being able to ask for help is a gigantic mental step that is very hard to overcome.”

Green Chicken Trail Fairies’ Escapades

They call us the Green Chicken Trail Fairies. I wrote this blog to share our adventures with curious folks who love to be outdoors and play under the big sky


When two goofy leaders and a group of Montana youth spend every waking moment with each other….things get weird. This excellent rap performed at graduation and the pictures of our drawing game/crew stand as testament to that.
