Just a Day in my Life - Chaco Ambassador Lindsey Wilson

A few months ago I joined in with a few other Chaco Ambassadors to make this ‘day in the life of a Chaconian‘ video. I took the stance of a Chaconian Mom. A little ‘me time’ a little ‘play time’ and some outdoor adventure. The stuff that makes for a great day.

Going Solo in the Great Outdoors… with Kids

It’s something I deal with all the time as a stay-at-home-mom who is also an outside junkie. Even with a 5-, 3-, and five-month-old, I actually really like getting the kids out on my own.   I’m not much of a home body and getting the kids out for a hike or a trip to the lake always seems like a far better alternative than futzing around the house.

Tales From Around the World, Usually Some Place Near Moving Water

On Psyche, Time-Bombs and Making Marks

I adjusted the top sleeve of the sweater again, pulling it ever so carefully into position like a member of the bomb squad cutting the red wire. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. If I pulled it too far, it exposed that extra inch of skin on my ankle, but if I didn’t pull it far enough it didn’t provide enough coverage on my butt cheeks. Tick. Tock. But having cold cheeks wasn’t my only problem. The problem was, the sweater was on my legs, a size too small, and I was in the trunk of a sedan. It was my first extended road trip and I didn’t own a sleeping bag. KA-BOOM!

A Hunter of Water

The word nomad is a great description of myself. I enjoy the unpredictable life of traveling in a RV and constantly being on and around the water. I've been kayaking since I was thirteen years old so I am accustomed to an on-water lifestyle. Over the past few years I've directed my focus to competing in Kayaking, and am becoming a fierce competitor, with solid goals for this year. I am ranked 2nd in the USA and 5th in the world for Freestyle kayaking.

YOU'RE A ROCKSTAR

I'm Lindsey. I love being outside. I'm an environmental educator. The outdoors seems to be infused into everything I do; which explains why the other day when I uttered the phrase "you're a rockstar" my 5-year-old immediately thought I was referring to a meteorite.
