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.

American Birkebeiner Wisconsin pray for snow

Divine intervention may be need for the American Birkebeiner at Hayward, Wisconsin – pray for snow

The American Birkebeiner cross-country ski Marathon is only a month away and currently there is a shortage of snow in Hayward, Wisconsin. There is not much snow anywhere in the state. One-by-one, many winter events all across the state have been canceled from biathlons, skiing races, and candlelight night skis. Let us pray that the same fate does not befall the 40th anniversary race of this prestigious race.


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