Backpacking and the stuff that goes with it.

Ski For Fire


A 250 mile journey across the frozen Minnesota wilderness to help the Lakota stay warm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many Lakota families from the Pine Ridge Reservation face extreme winters on the South Dakota plains with no heat. In February, Ty Olson will ski the Minnesota-Ontario border in support of One Spirit’s Wood Program.

Oware is a proud sponsor, donating sewing time for the pyramid tent and sled duffles used for the trip.

You can help too.

Bayley Lake, WA in November


Wet and snowy. Plastic boots work great. Lots of animal tracks. Cliff above the lake looks interesting, rock climbing in a warmer season?
