Hello, we are the Dye Clan. I'm Jeremy Dye, and this is my wife Tara. We have two little girls, Savannah and Madilyn, ages 2 and 0. We live in Richfield, Utah.
Please feel free to email me for any reason, even if it's just to say hi. Invite us on one of your adventures, or tag along with us on one of ours. Let me know what you like or don't like about the site. Correct me if I got something wrong. Or let me know if some feature doesn't work.
DyeClan.com is a personal website created by me, Jeremy Dye. It is mostly a collection of fun things that we, the Dye Clan, have done. We like to get outdoors and go camping, hiking, caving, canyoneering, or whatever. Check out the Outdoor Activities section of this website for trip reports and beta on the fun places we have been.
In addition to outdoor sports, I also have several DIY projects detailed. These projects range from cool furniture to a large playground complete with climbing wall and zipline. OK, so the playground is still in progress, but it will be cool when it's done. Below are a few of the most popular projects I have done.
I also have a growing rock collection that is featured here.
I'm in the process of writing online guides for several outdoor sports including canyoneering, caving, and possibly rock climbing and canoeing. I started in May 2012 on my Canyoneering 101 guide, which currently has 98 pages complete out of 157 planned pages (as of February 20, 2013). This canyoneering guide covers gear, knots, anchors, rigging, rappelling, pothole escape, ascending, and a plethora of other skills. Many of the sections are still evolving and may change names, url's, and order in the upcoming months.
January 11, 2013 - DyeClan.com got a facelift. New features include a more modern look and easier navigation for tablets and smartphones.
December 5, 2012 - Download KML file of outdoor activities to view in Google Earth.
November 5, 2012 - I added a list view of my outdoor activities page. Now you can easily see the most recently added outdoor activities, outdoor activities grouped by state or by national or state park.
September 19, 2012 - I reworked the details view of my outdoor activities page. Now the preview includes the location, number of stars, activity type, length, duration, and other important information in addition to the description.
July 13, 2012 - I reworked the right column of all my outdoor activities pages (234 outdoor activities and counting!). Now, the activity description and other information is at the top for easy reference and includes a small map of where the activity is located. If the activity is located inside a featured area, all the other things to do in that area show up too. This should help make it easier to plan a trip. For an example, see Alpine Pond Trail in Cedar Breaks National Monument.
May 1, 2012 - I added an interactive map of the outdoor activities we've been on. You can search by activity, state, park, or features. For example: technical canyoneering in Utah, hikes that have arches, fun places in Utah.
April 16, 2012 - I added a details view for our outdoor activities. You can search by activity, state, park, or features. For example: technical caves in Utah, non-technical caves in Utah, national parks, hikes that have petroglyphs.
