Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

cross-country ski straightaway

Cross-country ski straightaway at McMiller Sports ski area South Kettle Moraine

Visions of a snowy straightaway at the McMiller ski area in South Kettle Moraine is enough to make skiers start to salivate for the beginning of the cross-country ski season. With hope, in just a couple of weeks, mother nature will comply and dump some snow on Wisconsin state parks, so we can commence our training for the Birkebeiner.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
