Wilderness Walk: Please Don’t Die On Us

No one was harmed in the making of today’s walk.

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Dallas Stars at Minnesota Wild Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

Hey everyone! Hope you're having a nice weekend so far! Training Camp continues today and the World Cup of Hockey returns tonight. So far, training camp seems to be one part player excitement and another part of players staving off death.

As for today's music, I had trouble deciding between Blues Skies for the upcoming season, some interesting Postmodern Jukebox, and Spurgeon's theme song, so I decided to play it safe with some Rush instead.

Enjoy the Walk!
