My Transition Wild
Transition Wild is a blog dedicated to the pursuit of new adventures in the outdoors, seen through the eyes of a Michigander who now lives in Colorado. The word “Transition” is the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another. The word “Wild” means to be living or growing in the natural environment; not domesticated or cultivated.
In June of 2015, I accepted a job offer in Colorado and made the journey to this beautiful state filled with endless terrain and wildlife. I love everything about the great outdoors; hunting, hiking, fishing, exploring and so much more.
This blog is meant to document and share my experiences along the way as I transition to a completely new environment, much different from that of the midwest. Living in a different environment causes change at multiple different levels; requiring oneself to think differently, prepare differently, and act differently. It requires added gear, more knowledge and a deeper understanding of the reality of the wild. My goal is to show the reader a real-life experience and how each element of wilderness activity has to be planned and executed in an altered way, compared to my previous Michigan lifestyle.
Adam Parr is an avid bowhunter and outdoorsmen who grew up in the Michigan hunting whitetail deer, turkeys, and small game. He learned at a very young age that his passion for hunting was more of an obsession.
Adam decided in the latter part of 2014 to make a change of location and transition to a new landscape. Since moving to Colorado, Adam enjoys activities such as mountain biking, whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, and camping.
