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.

Chicago Blizzard of 2011

Chicago Blizzard of 2011 – The Chicago city streets covered in snow last February

This is actually the anti-travel of the day photo as February 2, 2011 was a day no one traveled in and around Chicago. Flights were cancelled and Lake Shore Drive infamously shut down with many people still stuck in their cars. The only way to get around town was by cross-country skiing. My kind of day.


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