Kimble the Turtle is a hiking reptile. Interestingly, turtles are reptiles, like snakes and lizards. He is has four legs and a tail, and a shell. He travels in the wood, usually on trails, in parks and in other scenic places. He believes in the Leave No Trace outdoor ethics, so he stays on the trails, traveling on durable surfaces and being careful not to trample vegetation. He is also against cutting switchbacks.

Kimble the Turtle uses a Delorme PN/60w GPS and a Spot Personal Locator to track his journeys by satellite. He uses a Nikon AW-110 camera, with WiFi and GPS built-in, to take pictures of the places he visits. Kimble has an account on geocaching.com as kimbletheturtle. When he is travelling the trails, you can find him on his Spot Account at this link.

You can visit his Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Kimbletheturtle. If you do, please give him a Like. It will really help his self-esteem, which is generally somewhat low in turtles due to the fact that they are not very fast or even pretty, and he has tiny little beady eyes. So he is not much to look at, although he is called cute pretty often when he is spotted in the wood. You can follow him on Twitter.com, @kimbletheturtle. He will probably follow you back.

You will be able to see all of Kimble's adventures right here and by clicking the other links above. Kimble loves to visit the California coast, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe and the Columbia River area. We will let you know what he is up to.
