Our sole purpose is to share compelling ideas, knowledge, and perspectives. For Teton Strong we envision an inclusive, crowd-sourced, community-driven resource to explore the intentional mental, physical, social, and spiritual practices and rich experiences that bring us alive and are characteristic of a values-driven outdoor lifestyle.


News flash: Resilience is the New Happiness

When we learn and develop our ability to stay strong in the face of a perilous situation and force fear to step aside to the higher needs of executing a mission, we are practicing mental fortitude and resilience. From climbing the Grand Teton, growing food in a harsh environment, or community building during the Covid Pandemic, we’ve got a lot to share.


Food, health, spirituality, nature, parenting, art, mental health, play, adventure … there are so many facets to living Teton Strong.

At its core, though, living means eating and eating is what we do best. While all aspects of a Teton Strong lifestyle will be featured here, food is our major passion so it will have its own special place.

Teton Strong on Substack

Supporting writers on Substack allows us (and you!) to avoid SEO-optimizing posts masquerading as real writing and drumming up readers’ anxiety for clicks. YOU, not advertisers, support your favorite writers so they can focus on their craft. What you get in return is the targeted content you choose.  

For my readers who are thoughtful truth seekers,  I  promise a balanced look at current events as I explore my life experiences. With compassion, understanding, and a focus on my core belief that most humans are inherently good, my mission is to manifest more of this in our world. Via personal essays, poetry, and book/article/podcast reviews, my mission is to inspire us all to Be Nice and Have Fun … I’ll always throw in a few delicious recipes and links to books, articles, podcasts, and playlists that inspire me.
