Evan Tanner’s Latest Adventure

Evan TannerFor those who follow UFC veteran Evan Tanner, you know that he leads what some might call an unorthodox lifestyle, complete with random, life-threatening excursions that seem above all else, unnecessary.

Tanner is at it again and this time the former UFC middleweight champion is gearing up for a trip into the vast desert of Southern California:

“The idea going into the desert came to me soon after I moved to Oceanside. It was motivated by my friend Sara’s talk of treasure hunting and lost gold, and my own insatiable appetite for adventure and exploration. I began to imagine what might be found in the deep reaches of the untracked desert. It became an obsession of sorts…

One more week. I think one more week, and I’ll be ready to go.”

I’ve been gathering my gear for this adventure for over a month, not a long time by most standards, but far too long for my impatient nature. Being a minimalist by nature, wanting to carry only the essentials, and being extremely particular, it has been a little difficult to find just the right equipment. I plan on going so deep into the desert, that any failure of my equipment, could cost me my life. I’ve been doing a great deal of research and study. I want to know all I can about where I’m going, and I want to make sure I have the best equipment.

Good luck Evan, and be sure to watch out for those man-eating jack rabbits, and that killer cacti.
