Making Your Stomach Crawl
As I'm getting some of the menu items together for my thru-hike the subject of trail snacks is on my mind. Normally beef jerky, trail-mix, and just plain ol' Power Bars are what I'm munching on as I hike down the trail. Some of the things that are not typically on my snack menu are Mopani Worms, Thai Curry Crickets, Reindeer Pate and BBQ Worm Crisps. A United Kingdom company called Edible is trying to change that though. They offer all of the above plus a few other things that are sure to make your stomach crawl. Check out their product line and if your brave enough to try any let me know how it goes.
Formerly a freelance photographer with clients ranging from Extreme Boats Magazine to The Dallas Morning News. I switched from freelance to staff positions with newspapers in Texas and Oklahoma. I'm currently a staff photographer for the Herald Democrat in Sherman, Texas.
I have been privileged enough to be acknowledged by my peers in the form of several awards. Some of those awards include two OPA monthly first place award. Three first place Associated Press awards for sports, spot news, and graphic/illustrations. Four second place Associated Press awards for photo package, spot news, sports, and general News. An honorable mention in the APME awards, and the one that means the most to me a second place in the sportsshooter.com monthly contest.
