Texas

In Ryan’s Words: They say things are bigger in Texas. Turns out, some things are and some things aren’t. The span of I-10 from the Sabine River westward to El Paso definitely is the longest single state stretch of that particular interstate highway. It seems to go on forever. But the maximum distance you can get from a road in … >>

Alabama

Skyla can do anything she sets her mind to – she decided she wasn’t going to get in the backpack and she didn’t!  At 6 years old she hiked almost 19 miles in 3 days…her first ever trip to hike by herself!

Oklahoma

Project Remote is working to precisely calculate and travel to the remotest locations in each of the 50 United States.  Below is a written account of our 6.2 mile hiking expedition to document the Oklahoma Remote Spot.  This is our 35th state Remote Spot documented as part of Project Remote.   In Ryan’s Words: Late November, 2017.  After finishing Nebraska, we visit … >>

Nebraska

Project Remote is working to precisely calculate and travel to the remotest locations in each of the 50 United States.  Below is a written account of our 9.3 mile hiking expedition to document the Nebraska Remote Spot. This is our 34th state Remote Spot documented as part of Project Remote. In Ryan’s Words…. November 22, 2017.  The Remote Spotters arrive in the Nebraska Sandhills … >>

Arkansas

The likelihood that a European human has stood in this exact location at sometime in the past seems fairly high, given that almost all Eastern forests were either clearcut or selectively cut at some time since colonization. 

Colorado

The Colorado Remote Spot sits within a forested hillside covered in spruce. The elevation is 11, 700 feet. We are near, but not beyond treeline. Standing dead spruce trees vastly outnumber the live ones.

Connecticut

We had to bushwhack-hike up a steep mountain slope 0.3 mile from the nearest foot hiking trail. The bushwhack took more time and energy to accomplish than the other 4 miles of the round-trip Remote Spot hike. We could hear a train as well as the nearest highway while standing on the CT Remote Spot in the mid afternoon.

Delaware

One of the unique pleasures of Remote Spotting is listening to the natural sounds of an area. At the Delaware Remote Spot, the sound of the water rolling against the grassy shoreline was peaceful and soothing.

Florida

But out here in the Everglades, waiting for the tide to rise with no ability to connect with the outside world, there is nothing to do BUT sit…and think…and soak up your surroundings. This kind of disconnected remoteness is exactly what we hope to help others experience.

Idaho

In the middle of the night, something wildly wonderful yet frightening happens…I awaken out of a dead sleep to the howling of a wolf pack seemingly all around us.
