Hiya, I’m Trace.

Rich in gratitude. Every. Day. I love backpacking and this is where I share my backpacking nerdery with the hope that it can help others in their outdoor adventures!

I’m also an entrepreneur specializing in technology, web design and lead generation. In another life I was a California Real Estate Broker and an Equities Trader holding the Series 7, 63, 55 and 24 Securities Licenses. I’m also fortunate enough to call myself a Black Rock Ranger. I left the World Trade Center three minutes before the first plane hit, so I must still be here for something amazing!

I LOVE BASS MUSIC, road trips, sailing, Burning Man, the Grateful Dead, MMA, Colorado, Hawaii, backpacking, ukuleles, Jiu Jitsu, vintage Schwinns, hammocks, vintage tube amps and guitars and all things relating to classic Americana. I have an extra Uke, want to jam? Cheers!

Ketamine has has had a more profound and lasting impact on me than Ayahuasca has, certainly more healing. It’s true, besides working on deer, horses and cheetahs and antelopes it also works on humans and is prescribed for treatment resistant depression, but is sadly very TT unaffordable at $500 / treatment in a monthly basis. It’s also used as a war time anesthetic as it does not affect your respiratory system. This means you don’t need a respirator when doing surgery, which is why it was the most used anesthetic in the Vietnam War. It’s also used in pediatrics for sedating children. Say Timmy Monster has a peanut lodged in his ear and will not stay still long enough for a delicate but sharp instrument to be used in his ear canal to retrieve the peanut without potentially rupturing his eardrum. Kids can get scared though and sometimes throw up, but there’s a technique used before sedating them. You ask them to think of the happiest moment they can think of and THEN sedate them and put them into a K-Hole. “Children that are put down in a k-hole as happy kids, rise up from the k-hole as happy kids”. Finally, it has a many possible ROA (routes of administration), intramuscular, intravenous, oral, intranasal and yes, you can most certainly boof it, go team! Finally, finally, if someone is having a bad time, it is short acting, a couple hours in length. I love you! <3 . . . . . . . #dubstep #wubz #meow #LOVE #khole #burningman #keto #ketosis #lowcarb #ketogenic #backpacking #hiking #outdoors #exploremore #optoutside #ketobackpacking #outside #travel #adventure #ketamine #mountains #nature #joerogan #beard #beards

Since I have a new FB account, I figured I would get the basic housekeeping out of the way so I never have to talk about them again! These topics are awash in dogma and propaganda that misinforms and harms us and those we love: 1) Intersectionalism, identity politics and woke culture are toxic, hateful and bad for everyone. 2) Veganism is bad for your health and bad for the planet. Their benefits are often overstated or completely false. We don't hear from the many ex-vegans because they know they will be attacked for leaving veganism. Most vegans become ex vegans. Ex vegans are an amazing source of info for the reality that is veganism. 3) Pit bulls are bad. I grew up with one and lived with one for the past two years. They good until they aren't and I know so many people that had their sweet pit turn on someone or another pet or neighbor's pet. Genetic behaviors affect herding with cattle dogs and retrieving with retrievers and pit type breeds are no exception when it comes to their genetics and what they've been bred for and it's not being a

Your candidate doesn't matter as each election cycles reverses to the opposite party where previous administration changes are undone. Change can only happen when a true multi-party platform is implemented and the two party system is dismantled. 5) Facebook and social media is bad. It lower attention spans, creates a fertile breeding ground for depression and axiety and replaces face to face interactions with our fellow humans 6) Proper dubstep mate!
