Ep. 695: Walking Across Australia With Five Wild Camels - Sophie Matterson
01:03:11
After needing a break from her career in film and TV, Sophie took a very fortuitous turn in her life by finding the most random job she could, milking camels. If you didn’t realize camels could be milked, neither did I. To make a long story short, Sophie fell in love with camels and never went back to her old career. Her ongoing 5-year passion for camels has taken her to places like The Flinders Ranges, Lake Eyre and The Tirari Desert, Uluru, Michigan USA, Texas, and Rajasthan India. At some point in the pursuit to learn more about these amazing creatures, Sophie got the idea to cross Australia on foot while being accompanied by 5 wild (or “feral”) camels. This would not only entail catching and taming 5 out of upwards of a million wild camels that roam Australia but also walking thousands of kilometers across the vast and void Australian Outback. Keep in mind, Australia is the geographic size of the US with 1/10th of the population. A wild idea indeed! Today Sophie joins us from just over the halfway point of the journey in the bizarre little town of Coober Pedy. Jude, Delilah, Charlie, Clayton, and Mac will all continue the journey in March. www.sophiematterson.com ( http://www.sophiematterson.com ) Instagram: @sophiematterson ( https://www.instagram.com/sophiematterson/?hl=en ) Facebook Coast-to-Coast-to-camel-trek ( https://www.facebook.com/Coast-to-Coast-to-camel-trek-111405407226890 ) Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 694: Leaving Road to Go Gravel - Pro Cyclist, Pete Stetina
41:47
After years of being in the biggest road cycling races in the world a devastating and life-altering injury left Pete’s career path felt shaken up and in need of more stability. Growing up in Colorado and now residing in the Tahoe area, the outdoors were the places he felt at home and at peace. That’s when Pete started to explore the idea of leaving the world of road cycling for the up-and-coming gravel scene. It was a place that accepted newcomers, valued community and good beer, but also gave the edge to not just the fastest riders, but the toughest. An unlikely full recovery is what even made this dream of going gravel possible. In today’s episode, we’re hearing a story of endurance, optimism, and the power of betting on yourself.

Ep. 693: World Towning - Jessica & Will
01:11:00
In 2014, Jessica and Will decided a “normal” life in Boston wasn’t enough for their family of four. After several potential ex-pat experiences fell through with Will’s job, the family had an appetite to try something new. That idea? Instead of calling one place home why not call the whole world “home”? To dip their toes into this way of living they spent a year in Costa Rica, then a year in Educador, and 9 months in France. Those first few years included experiences like hiking the Inca Trail, traveling around the Galapagos Islands, and dance classes deep in the Costa Rican rainforest. To continue explorings their new “town” they hopped into an RV and visited every country in Europe for another two and a half years while homeschooling their kids, completing a thru-hike of the Camino De Santiago. Now that COVID has interpreted the original plan of traveling around Asia, the family is taking to the seas to experience life aboard a sailboat while growing their business, WorldTowning and WorldTowning Voyages, wherein small groups of travelers embark on shared experiences and adventures to travel the world as locals on roads less traveled with their family as the hosts. worldtowning.com ( https://www.worldtowning.com ) youtube.com/worldtowning ( https://www.youtube.com/worldtowning ) Instagram: @worldtowning ( https://www.instagram.com/worldtowning ) Facebook: @worldtowning ( https://www.facebook.com/worldtowning ) Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 690: Crossing the 20 Largest Glaciers In The World - Vincent Colliard
51:51
Vincent is joining us from Norway to discuss his and Børge Ousland’s journey to cross the 20 world's largest glaciers in what they are calling the IceLegacy Project, a way for them to share to the world the need to preserve these special places. From IceLegacy.com ( http://www.icelegacy.com/ ) “Glaciers are in fast decline due to rising temperatures, causing threat of long-term sea-level rise. They are crucial as a freshwater source for millions of people worldwide. This is why glaciers need to be better known, considered, and protected. The world needs to find technical and political solutions to the environmental crisis. This long-term expedition is meant to be an incubator to that process, a visual example, and a window to what is happening. The project combines athletic prowess, human adventure, and the sharing of knowledge about the polar environment with as many people as possible, so that future generations may enjoy the fascinating and priceless legacy of glaciers and icecaps.” Instagram: @VincentColliard ( https://www.instagram.com/VincentColliard/ ) @icelegacyproject ( https://www.instagram.com/icelegacyproject/ ) icelegacy.com ( http://www.icelegacy.com/ ) Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 671: Professional Endurance Athlete - Ryan Kempson
39:50
Growing up in the woods of Vermont, Ryan felt very comfortable with a lack of “rules” as he and his brother, Matthew, explored the forests, played in the mud, and generally lived free-range. Ryan’s athletic pursuits eventually led him to the basketball court where he would spend his high school and college years excelling in the sport at a high level. The combination of being comfortable outdoors and the agility that basketball demands led Ryan to excel in the up and coming sport of obstacle course racing and even growing into being a professional in the sport. Like many professional athletes, Ryan has faced near career-ending injuries, adjustments in focus, and changes in passions.

Ep. 670: The Longest Annual Paddle Race in the World - Greg Wingo You don’t think of Alabama as holding many records in the world of endurance races (at least I don’t). However, you’d be wrong!

Ep. 669: Bringing Adventure to the Masses Through Spartan - Joe De Sena
29:21
Joe De Sena is on a mission to get 100 million people off the couch through his company, Spartan, the world’s leading obstacle race. Many of you are probably familiar with Spartan, but might not be familiar with Joe. At his core, he’s an entrepreneur that grew up between his mom, a yogi, and his father, a successful businessman teaching him a balance between hard work and purpose. That balance, coupled with his intense desire to challenge himself and others, has led Joe to experience some of the harshest conditions on Earth while completing some of the most extreme competitions. His story has taken literally hundreds of interesting turns and his experiences are too vast to capture here. After a successful career on Wall Street, Joe moved his family to a 700-acre farm in Vermont where they grow organic produce, operate a bed and breakfast, and a general store for Appalachian Trail hikers. This setting was the perfect scenario for the idea of Spartan to be born. Spartan has now grown into a worldwide phenomenon, with over one million annual participants in more than 40 countries. Joe is also a two-time NY Times bestselling author and host of the @spartanuppodcast ( https://www.instagram.com/spartanuppodcast/ ).

Ep. 656: Using Adventure Sports to Change the World - Billy Starr
36:19
When Billy’s mother, Betty, was diagnosed with cancer he decided to return home to Massachusetts instead of leaving for his climbing trip to Nepal. Billy had just graduated from college in Colorado and the world was seemingly his oyster. As his mother’s cancer worsened, those free-spirited experiences became less and less important and were ultimately replaced with grief after Betty tragically passed away from cancer in 1974. After floundering a few years and wondering how to process the grief, Billy’s desire to “do something” continued to grow. He took action in 1980 by organizing the first Pan-Mass Challenge as a way to make sense of the grief and carry on the legacy of his mother. The challenge would be to ride a bicycle across Massachusetts and raise money for the Jimmy Fund ( http://www.jimmyfund.org/ ) and Dana-Farber Foundation ( https://danafarber.jimmyfund.org/site/SPageServer/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvduK0pXS6gIVzZyzCh0p8AcJEAAYASAAEgJjmvD_BwE&pagename=agda_danafarber_cancer_donation2&s_src=AGDA101419AA&s_subsrc=AGDA101419AA&utm_campaign=AGDA101419AA&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google ). 36 people joined that first year and they raised $10,000. The PMC was born. As founder and executive director of the Pan-Mass Challenge for over 40 years, Billy has grown the PMC into the largest single fundraising event in the country. To date, more than $700 million dollars has been raised, 6,000 riders participate every year with 4,000 volunteers, and participation from 200 companies.

Ep. 652: The Longest Canoe Trip Ever Done - Dana Starkell
01:02:27
When 10-year-old Dana bought a book about Tarzan rather than a candy bar with his first $1 allowance, he had no idea just how fateful that decision would be. After being inspired by the book he told his dad, Don, that he wanted to walk to the Amazon River. Don, being the imaginative adventurer that he was, took his son's request seriously and began planning what would become the world's longest-ever canoe trip. It would take 10 years before Don, Dana, and his brother, Jeff, would set out on their 12,000 mile, 2-year-long journey to the mouth of the Amazon River. Jeff eventually dropped out of the adventurere, but Don and Dana made it to the end, earning their induction into the Guinness Book of World Records ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinness_Book_of_World_Records ) for having completed the longest canoe journey ever, a distance of 12,181 miles (19,603 kilometres).

49:37
Although Johanna and Christine grew up in the same town of Appleton, Wisconsin, their paths would never cross. That is, until one day Christine was featured in a local newspaper for disappearing on a remote mountain in western China. Johanna’s mother picked up the story and became somewhat consumed with Christine’s background and how this bright young woman from Appleton ended up on the world’s highest mountain. When her mother was no longer able to work on the book due to the progression of Parkinson’s Disease, Johanna decided to pick up the story and turn it into Edge of the Map: The Mountain Life of Christine Boskoff. In today’s episode, we’ll talk with Johanna about her life and what led her to pursue this story and what it was like for a non-climber to delve so deep into that world.

Ep. 645: Ultrarunning and FKT’s - Avery Collins
36:35
From the Without Compromise show notes: Avery grew up in the Midwest, far from the mountains of Colorado that he now calls home. He found running after years of playing basketball and the unique suffering of the sport quickly drew him into longer and longer events. That and the fact he was a broke college student that couldn’t afford a gym membership, running made total sense. Right as he began garnering big wins and making a name for himself, he and his girlfriend, Sabrina, were struck by a semi on the highway. Avery suffered some major injuries that caused him to rethink his direction in life and if he’d every get back out on the trail. After an arduous six months, he was able to start to run again. Fast forward a few years and Avery is now one of the fastest ultrarunners in the world and frequently podiums at iconic races like the Georgia Death Race, Colorado 200, Fat Dog 120, Hurt 100, and dozens more. He finished 6th overall at Western States in 2017. This summer, Avery will be attempting an FKT of the legendary Nolan’s 14 Route ( https://www.outsideonline.com/1926736/your-brain-pain-nolans-14-route ) in Colorado, racing the Tor des Geants ( https://www.tordesgeants.it/en/content/tor-des-g%C3%A9ants%C2%AE ) in Italy, and the Snowman Race ( https://snowmanrace.org/ ) in Bhutan Instagram: @runninhigh ( https://www.instagram.com/runninhigh/ ) Facebook: @avery.collins.77 ( https://www.facebook.com/avery.collins.77 ) SBNATION's writeup on Avery, ( https://www.sbnation.com/2020/4/9/21201381/zen-ultra-running-and-the-art-of-suffering ) Zen, Ultra-running and the Art of Suffering ( https://www.sbnation.com/2020/4/9/21201381/zen-ultra-running-and-the-art-of-suffering ) To learn more about Athletic Brewing and my other show through them, Without Compromise, go here: athleticbrewing.com/blogs/podcast ( https://athleticbrewing.com/blogs/podcast ) Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ethan knows what it takes to survive. He’s faced cancer twice, lost his father at the age of 14, had teammates die of AIDS while playing professional soccer in Africa, and has won the reality show Survivor: Africa. Today Ethan is joining Without Compromise to talk about what it means to survive difficult situations and ultimately use those tragedies for good in a principle he calls “never letting a crisis go to waste”. For example, when he won the $1 million prize for Survivor: Africa he decided to use the money to start Grassroot Soccer, an adolescent health organization that uses the popularity of soccer to educate at-risk youth all over the world. To date, they’ve educated over 2 million young people through their program.

Ep. 632: World Record Highlining - Ari DeLashmutt
01:00:50
The world of highlining is often misunderstood as simply walking from one point to another across a thin webbing hundreds of feet in the air. While it is that, it’s so much more. Ari does an amazing job illustrating, even for the totally unfamiliar, the thrill, focus, and adventure of being out there on the line. Most of the episode revolves around him and his friend’s ridiculous accomplishment of highlinging 2 km across an abandoned asbestos mine in (appropriately enough) Asbestos, Quebec. The project was huge, ludicrous, and completely awesome. Enjoy.

Ep. 629: Leaving Alaska - Update - Kristin Knight Pace
37:46
Not many people would go to Alaska during the winter, completely alone, to take care of a team of sled dogs to get over a recent divorce. However, that's exactly what Kristin did. That toughness eventually led her to become one of only 29 women to complete both the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest 1000-mile sled dog race. Kristin is now remarried and has officially started a new journey, motherhood. Up until recently, she also works as a wilderness planner for Denali National Park and also wrote a book about her experiences, This Much Country , which made the New York Times summer reading list in 2019. It can be found following the link below or pretty much anywhere else you buy books (she asks that you support your local bookstore). However, today’s episode is not about her life in Alaska. It’s about her and her family making the enormous change to restart their lives in Texas. Listen in to hear about how continuing to live in Alaska would have led to compromise and how a complete change in identity is sometimes the best direction to go.

Ep. 625: Legendary Freeskier - Mark Abma
44:19
Mark is so easy to talk to about all sorts of topics that you forget he’s an iconic freeskier with numerous awards under his belt. In 2005 and 2007 he won the Powder Video Awards for Best Male Performance and is well known by his amazing freeskiing skills that are captured in film through his nearly two-decade relationship with Matchstick Productions ( https://matchstickpro.com/ ). In fact, he’s been featured in every single MSP film for the last 18 years, as well as several Warren Miller and Poor Boyz movies. It hasn’t gone to his head, though. He started mogul skiing before switching to park competitions and chipping a career out over the years. He says it has humbled him and led to a certain amount of contentment over the years.

Ep. 620: Backcountry Foodie - Aaron Mayhew
45:12
For many of us an adventure is life-changing. In fact, it’s often a distinction between the life before and after that adventure which leaves many adventurers with the idea of a completely different lifestyle as well as career post-adventure. Today, we’re hearing form Aaron Mayhew about what it was like for her to experience a midlife crisis, decide to hike the PCT and wanting to take her dietitian skills out of a hospital setting, and into the backcountry. Starting a career around your passion for the outdoors isn’t easy, but with the right amount of dedication, knowledge, and hard work, you increase your chances of success dramatically. Her business is producing quick, easy, and nutritious recipes for backpackers and other adventurers. Her meals aren’t only for adventure athletes. They are also great for quick and nutritious meals you can have at home or have ready in your pantry for quick weekend getaways, work, etc. She joins us from her van in New Mexico after a day of hiking. backcountryfoodie.com ( https://backcountryfoodie.com/ ) IG: @backcountry_foodie ( https://www.instagram.com/backcountry_foodie/ ) FB: @backcountryfoodie ( https://www.facebook.com/backcountryfoodie/ ) YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSUpLNV2Ct1WQWZHhSF3eCw Get 25% off on their website at backcountryfoodie.com/friends ( https://backcountryfoodie.com/friends ) Try CS Instant Coffee for 10% off your first order!

The Pan-American Highway is an 18,000-mile continuous network of roads from the southern tip of South America to the northern tip of Alaska, with the sole exception being the Darien Gap, a 60 mile separation in the road through a nearly impenetrable jungle on the Panama/Colombian border. Most folks opt to go around the gap by boat or plane. Today’s guest, JD Smith, decided to go through the 99 mile long jungle by motorcycle instead.

Ep. 612: Family of 6 Thru-Hiking the PCT and More - Strawbridge Family
01:09:32
When a crippling amount of debt kept the Strawbridge family from going on family vacations, they quickly began looking for cheap ways to still enjoy an experience together. That necessity led them to camping and hiking. After realizing that this type of “vacation” was more rewarding the refueling than a tradition trip, they decided to go all in for an experience of a lifetime to celebrate getting back on track financially. That led to the idea of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail as a family. I hope you enjoy this amazing story of great risk, reward, love, and faith.

Ep. 609: Running & Blindness - Kyle Robidoux
35:47
If you’ve ever felt limited by your circumstances or physical limitations, today’s episode is a must-listen. Back in 2010, Kyle was sick and tired of feeling terrible about himself and having a hard time playing with his daughter, so he decided to do something about it. Losing a large amount of weight by walking, and eventually running, is no easy task. After taking into account that Kyle is legally blind, the challenge is exponentially greater. However, that didn’t stop him from pushing forward, crushing limitations, and finding creative ways to exercise and run, without a full view of what was around him. 10 years later Kyle is running ultras on and off-trail, running between 20-25 hours per week, and advocating for folks in his situation through his career. Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours. - Richard Bach Kylerobidoux.com ( https://www.kylerobidoux.com/ ) Instagram: @blindbeerrunner ( https://www.instagram.com/blindbeerrunner/ ) Twitter: @kyleRrobidoux ( https://twitter.com/kylerrobidoux?lang=en ) Athletic Brewing Adventure Grant Application: https://athleticbrewing.com/pages/athletic-brewing-2020-adventure-grant Try CS Instant Coffee for 50% off your first order for the months of September and October only!

58:01
When Marty's 60th birthday came rolling around, he knew he needed to do something adventurous that took him out of his normal routine and into an entirely different frame of mind. From that longing came the idea to race in the Tour Divide, a 2,750-mile, mostly off-road, mountain bike race from Canada to Mexico along the Continental Divide. Now, at the age of 65, Marty is gearing up this June for another TD attempt. His 6th time on the trail. Our most adventurous years don't have to be the earliest. In fact, they can be the most recent. I hope Marty's story helps you see your own adventure in 2020.

Ep. 604: Chasing Fastest Known Times - Jason Hardrath
01:13:27
After a serious car accident that left him with limited mobility in his leg, Jason decided he was done letting time slip by that wasn't in the pursuit of some higher goal in places he loved to be. This led him to pursue wilderness-based FKTs (Fastest Known Times). To date, Jason has 35 FKTs in some of the most iconic and beautiful places in the American West. Many of those FKTs are on impressively difficult routes. The Cascade Trifecta, Rainier Infinity Loop, Crater Lake Circumnavigation, and Oregon's Five Highest are all FKT's Jason has under his belt. Not bad for an elementary PE teacher having this level of adventures on school breaks and weekends. Just imagine what you can do if you started trying.

Ep. 584: The First American Cycling Team in Europe - Bill Humphreys
39:06
In 1973 Raleigh Bicycles took a bold step by inviting an American four-rider team to compete in the 8 day, 750-mile Tour of Ireland. This was unprecedented as no American team had ever raced in such a prestigious European bike event. And no one gave them a chance. However, the Raleigh team was young and excited and came out with some impressive firsts. Team member John Howard won a stage and finished 3rd overall, another finished 5th and Bill Humphreys was 3rd in a stage and was awarded the “Most Aggressive Rider” for that day. Phil Liggett, the commaisare of the race was so impressed that he and invited the team (on the spot) to compete in his prestigious Milk Race the following year. From that year forward, cycling would change forever as an entire new continent of talent and skill would participant and make its mark on European cycling. The Raleigh Team will be rejoining next summer to relive the glory of the experience at the Tour of Ireland reunion. Bill will be showing a 25-minute film of the race and a quick slideshow of the Tour of Ireland Reunion held this past summer at the Philly Bike Expo on November 2, 2019. www.therealbikeguy.com ( http://www.therealbikeguy.com ) The Jersey Project ( https://www.amazon.com/Jersey-Project-Bill-Humphreys/dp/0578116103 ) Try CS Instant Coffee for 50% off your first order for the months of September and October only!

Ep. 583: 75 Years Young and Still Adventuring Around the World - Lin Pardey
50:21
When Lin was tired of the “college-types” that she was always surrounded by, she decided to get to know a couple of sailors as an outlet from the mundaneness of campus life. She quickly fell in love with one of the guys, Larry, who was completely different from the folks she spent her days in class with. Lin was eager to learn so he began to teach her how to sail. Once she was comfortable on the water they began helping other folks deliver their boats around the area and they also began building their own. Not long after, the idea to live full-time on the 29-foot sailing vessel was born. Fast forward 47 years, 210,000 miles, and 77 countries later and we have Lin now sailing around the world on her own and having written dozens of books about her and Larry’s epic life. Lin has a lot to teach us in today’s episode and I encourage you to check out her many books. Try CS Instant Coffee for 50% off your first order for the months of September and October only!

Ep. 581: Kayaking the Amazon from Source to Sea - West Hansen
01:03:44
West was born and raised in Texas and found his love of water at an early age. He was heavily involved in the water sports scene in Austin for years, organizing cleanups, races, etc. However, it wasn’t until his first trip out of the county, at the age of 46, that West decided to pursue an enormous expedition, paddle the entire length of the Amazon River. This led West to organize The 2012 National Geographic Amazon Express Expedition, which was his first expedition. It started at the newly discovered/confirmed source of the Amazon, which added almost 100 miles to the river and after 111 days, they made it to the Atlantic Ocean, 75 miles east of Belem, Brazil. West is also the first to kayak Europe's longest river 2200 mile Volga River in Russia. In 2020 he and his group will be the first to kayak the entire Northwest Passage - 1,900 miles across the Canadian Arctic Archipelago with the “Arctic Cowboys”.

Ep. 572: The Adventure of Fly Fishing - Jon Hogins
54:48
Growing up in California, Jon was taken on epic adventures by his father into the local mountains and national parks where the opportunity to fly fish was abundant. Later in life, however, Jon found himself in the much warmer Texas landscape where he had to adjust his skills to continue pursuing the sport. Fly fishing is the perfect minimalistic complementary skill to so many other adventure sports; backpacking, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, etc. It doesn't take much to throw a small rod and a few flies in with your gear and have some fresh fish on your adventure.

Ep. 570: Paddling the Nile River - Sarah Davis
01:15:43
Sarah has always been involved in sports and has always loved adventure. She credits her mother for that. As a child she would pour through her mother’s photo albums of faraway places, hoping to one day go herself. After years of working in the world of banking and traveling to over 40 countries, Sarah was thumbing through adventures that have never been completed when she realized no woman had ever paddled the entire Nile River, the longest river in the world. She immediately began planning what that would look like to attempt. She was overwhelmed with fear and worry, but that didn’t stop her. Today, we’re listening to her story of paddling the entire Nile River and what it means to put one food (or paddle) in front of the other, even when your comfort zone is nowhere in sight. www.paddlethenile.com ( http://www.paddlethenile.com ) Instagram @paddlethenile ( https://twitter.com/paddlethenile?lang=en ) www.sarahdavis.co ( http://www.sarahdavis.co ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 569: Canoeing 1,000 Miles Through Canada’s Tundra - Stephan Kesting
01:27:39
Stephan Kesting is probably best known for the huge number of Brazilian jiu-jitsu videos he has on Youtube, the martial arts training articles he’s written for Grapplearts.com, and his instructional videos which people consume in app form, online streaming form, and DVD form. What’s not as well known is that he’s also a full-time firefighter who received the national medal of bravery for helping save two trapped firefighters from a collapse in a burning warehouse. He’s also been an avid outdoorsman for decades. For example, in 2015 he was dying of kidney failure due to a genetic condition. A kidney transplant saved his life and 6 months later he completed a 50 km mountain endurance hike with 2,600 meters of vertical climb and descent in the snow in a single day. He recently completed a 42 day, 1000 mile canoe trip that took him from the boreal forest of northern Canada to the open barren land tundra, and then down to Hudson bay. He was by himself and carried all his food and supplies with him. It was truly the adventure of a lifetime. Enjoy!

Ep. 568: How an Injury and Opportunity Is Leading Thousands to Learn Snowboarding Virtually - Fraser Johnston
53:28
When Fraser Johnston injured himself one summer, he realized that if the same injury had happened during the snowboarding season, he’d be in a heap of trouble. As a snowboard instructor, your body’s health is crucial to earning a living since you need to be on a board with your students. He quickly began brainstorming ideas to help scale his knowledge and passion for snowboarding, just in case. On top of that, Fraser noticed a huge lack of sign-ups in snowboarding lessons compared to skiing. The cultural stigma of snowboards and skyrocketing prices of gear and lift tickets helped fuel the idea of an economical and virtual way for him to make snowboarding more accessible to more people. He came up with Watch and Ride, a series of virtual lessons from basic to advanced to teach every type of snowboarder new tricks, skills, and the science behind snowboarding to optimally enjoy their time on the mountain. The business has been growing steadily, as well as his skills in marketing, content-creating, and scale. If you have a love for an adventure sport and want to one day turn it into a career, give this episode a listen! You’re bound to learn something from Fraser’s story.

Ep. 567: Learning to Soar - From Sailplane to Prop Plane to Hang Gliding - Revisited - Yvette Aguayo
01:01:47
Originally Published April 9, 2018 A few years back, Yvette Aguayo accidentally happened upon a glider ride opportunity on her birthday. She quickly discovered that she didn't actually have the money to go up for her first ride, but she was fortunate enough to have the instructor offer her a free ride anyway. It was this serendipitous day that ignited her passion for flight. Yvette was immediately hooked on flight and her love eventually lead her to work towards her private pilot's license as well as to discover a new passion for hang gliding. Today's show chronicles the things she experienced along the path to discovering human flight. Listen along and be inspired to get out there and have some fun!

Ep. 566: Climbing the 50 U.S. Highpoints in 50 Days with Type 1 Diabetes - Michael Shelver & Patrick Mertes
01:16:08
Patrick and Michael have been living with Type 1 Diabetes for most of their lives. Feeling a bit isolated and hesitant as children to venture too far away from available insulin or glucose monitoring tools, they individually pursuit adventurous lives before coming together to show the world anything is possible with T1D through their latest adventure, Project 50-IN-50 They climbed the 50 highpoints of each U.S. state and finished in 49 days – making them the first people with Type 1 diabetes to complete this achievement and joining an elite group of fewer than five people to do so the fastest in the world. Over the course of the 2019 summer, the team road-tripped over 17,000 miles to hike, run, climb and ski through 315 miles of trails. Patrick is the first person with T1D to successfully summit the highest peak in each of the 50 states. Michael experienced an emergency Life Flight off of Granite Peak in Montana and had to miss out on a handful of the peaks. Thankfully, he’s made a full recovery. After loads of tears and challenges along the way, Patrick and Michael persevered to complete their challenge. Project 50-IN-50 is an initiative of The Diabetes Family Connection, a North Carolina based 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. In addition to achieving a new milestone in mountaineering, Michael and Patrick have grown local and global communities of people with diabetes inspired to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. www.project50in50.org ( http://www.project50in50.org ) Instagram: @project50in50 ( https://www.instagram.com/project50in50/ ) Facebook: @project50in50 ( https://www.facebook.com/project50in50/ ) www.thedfc.org ( http://www.thedfc.org ) Their upcoming events: project50in50.org/speaking ( https://project50in50.org/speaking ) Photo credit here ( https://www.facebook.com/project50in50/photos/a.356281071804055/475545753210919/?type=3&theater ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 564: Discovering Adventure Sports in Your Forties - Revisited - Scott Newman
55:56
Originally Published February 15, 2018 Some of are introduced to adventure sports shortly after figuring out how to walk. Some of us found ourselves eyeballs deep in our adventure passions as teenagers and, for others, it takes until their forties or later to discover the pure enjoyment we have all come to know and love no matter what age we were when it happened. And that is a great thing. It's not crucial that we all see the light so early in life. What is important is that we eventually find ourselves living and dreaming as adventurers.

Ep. 563: Circumnavigating the Globe via Skates, Bike, and Row Boat - Karlis Bardelis
01:03:17
From boredofborders.com ( https://www.boredofborders.com/about ) : "Karlis is an ex project manager in the field of waste management who at the age of 28 realized that visiting mountains only a couple of times a year just won’t do, so he left his job and started a life of adventures and freedom, spreading the addiction and attracting others to BoB as well. Every adventure has a different team, but all of BoB team members have one thing in common - urge to get moving and true love for adventures. In 2013, Karlis crossed Europe from North Cape to Gibraltar on Nordic skates in 60 days covering more than 6150 kilometers and setting a new Guinness Record - The longest ride on inline-skates. (The Guinness guys have not acknowledged this yet, but who cares - we know it’s true.) From the end of January till mid-February 2014, Karlis and three other cycling enthusiasts traveled from Riga to Sochi by bicycle realizing a 2840 kilometers long wintery ride and reaching the capital of the Winter Olympic Games of 2014 in 17 days."

Ep. 560: Pushing Yourself While Pushing Your Mother - Beth Craig
52:10
When Beth’s mom, Barbara, was diagnosed with MS at the age of 38, a lot of things quickly seemed out of control and out of reach. Her mother’s confinement to a wheelchair was now the new normal. However, nothing seemed to be able to stop Barbara’s (Babsie) from wearing her room-filling smile. Years later, when Beth went to a local running event, she saw Rick and Dick Hoyt running in a modified wheelchair, since Rick was unable to walk or speak after being born with Cerebral Palsy. Once Beth saw the father-son duo doing the impossible, she knew that she and her mother could do those events too. She got a hold of a Hoyt “Blade” running wheelchair and started running with her mother, creating Team Babsie. To date, they’ve completed tons of 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, marathons, triathlons and charity bike rides. Last summer, Team Babsie pushed Babsie to the top of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. Currently, they are training to qualify for the Boston Marathon and in the Spring of 2020 they are headed to Spain to walk a part of the Camino de Santiago I hope you enjoy this story of inspiration, commitment, and love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW_dvMh1tm0 Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 559: Eleven Years Living at Sea and Counting - Brian Trautman
01:06:47
Have you ever wanted to just quit your job, sell your house and head out on an adventure for a decade? Yeah, me too. Today we chat with someone who actually did that and is still doing it, Brian Trautman. After being unsatisfied with the “perfect job”, house, car, etc., he came across a book about sailing across the ocean and knew that was what he needed to do with his life. He sold everything he owned, bought a boat, and sailed to New Zealand from Seattle. That first experience started a trend that would extend for more than a decade and lead to countless adventures that have been chronicled on his YouTube channel: Sailing SV Delos ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvLc83k5o11EIF1lEo0VmuQ ) , gaining over 100 million views in the process. To date, Brian has visited 6 continents, 40 countries, and crossed every ocean on his 53 foot Ketch.

01:02:41
From climbingthesevensummits.com/mike-hamill ( http://climbingthesevensummits.com/mike-hamill/ ) "Mike Hamill is a 6-time Everest summiteer, world-class mountain guide, and author. He oversees every CTSS expedition. A veteran climber, Mike has built his vast experience over twenty years as a senior mountain guide across all seven continents. Known as the foremost expert, he authored the book “ Climbing the Seven Summits ( http://climbingthesevensummits.com/book/ ) ” and has made 6 laps of the acclaimed Seven Summits mountaineering challenge. In 2008 he completes the circuit in just over 200 days. An adventurer by nature, Mike has skied to the South Pole, cycled unsupported across the United States, competed at a national level as a Nordic skier and is an ultramarathoner, cyclist, traveler, and philanthropist. He began his climbing career on the steep rock and ice of New England and New York State while obtaining a bachelor of science from St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. He is originally from Hanover, New Hampshire, and Bridgton, Maine. His love for the mountains and adventure continues to compel him to travel the globe and connect with the local mountain communities, particularly the Sherpa of the Khumbu region. This bond was his impetus in creating the “ Tiger of the Snows Fund ( http://tigerofthesnows.com/ ) ” a not-for-profit that provides grants to further education of mountain tourism workers and their families. Mike is a familiar and well-respected face in the mountaineering community. He is passionate about imparting his knowledge, skills, and experience to inspire others to harness their full potential in the mountains."

Ep. 554: Squeezing in Epic Adventures between College Breaks - Sam Chaneles
54:27
From engineeredforadventure.com/about ( http://engineeredforadventure.com ) : “Sam is an accomplished backpacker and mountaineer, as well as a current Mechanical Engineering student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA. After his freshman year in school, Sam thru-hiked the John Muir trail (in 2017) in record, early-season snowpack with his father. Sam went on to lead a school-sponsored expedition to Alaska and New Zealand over the next year before his next big adventure: climbing Kilimanjaro (19,341′), the tallest peak in Africa. The summer after sophomore year, Sam set out on his first solo adventure, a 40-day cross-country jaunt across Colorado through the San Juan, Weminuche, Sawatch, and Rocky Mountain National Park areas of Colorado. That same summer, Sam went on to lead another school-sponsored expedition to Alaska and then to Corsica, France, to hike the infamous GR20 trail. During his Junior year in school, Sam stayed busy adventuring, climbing Iztaccihuatl (17,159′) and Pico de Orizaba (18,491′) during long weekends off from classes. Sam’s next big adventure was down to South America for mountaineering in Ecuador with friends, as they climbed Cotopaxi (19,347′). When on campus, Sam is a trip and expedition leader, as well as the student president, for Outdoor Recreation Georgia Tech, one of the nation’s largest college outdoor recreation programs.” His Outdoor Resume ( https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HthsAae3eXZYkafMHYr9hXlEf3jH4-5XVOLQ19US1lE/edit?usp=sharing ) www.engineeredforadventure.com ( http://www.engineeredforadventure.com ) Instagram at @engineeredforadventure ( https://www.instagram.com/engineeredforadventure/ ) Facebook: @engineeredforadventure ( https://www.facebook.com/EngineeredForAdventure/ ) Photo credit here ( https://www.facebook.com/EngineeredForAdventure/photos/a.1684837264873440/2332181583472335/?type=3&theater ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 552: Conquering 30 Years of Anxiety Through Adventure Revisited - Paula McGuire
01:04:16
Originally Published August 31, 2017 Paula ‘Must Try Harder’ McGuire isn’t exactly your average adventurer. She doesn’t even own a sleeping bag. In fact, Paula spent her early years hiding from life and seeking better places to hide, eventually finding her world shrinking to the confines of her own home without an escape route. Thirty years of crippling social anxiety will do that to a girl. Adventure became Paula’s personal therapy in 2012 and, ever since, she has terrified herself daily in the name of recovery. So far, it’s working. www.paulamusttryharder.co.uk ( http://www.paulamusttryharder.co.uk/ ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 551: Skiing Self-Supported to the South Pole with Your Husband - Chris Fagan
01:20:27
When Chris and Marty Fagan go on an adventure, they go big! From bike tours through Africa to racing sailboats in Alaska, the couple is a dynamic duo of adventurous spirit. Over the winter of 2013/2014, that spirit culminated in a 48-day ski expedition to the South Pole. Upon completion, they became the first American married couple (and second married couple in history) to complete a full unsupported, unguided, unassisted ski from the Antarctic coast to the South Pole. In fact, they're two of just over 100 people in all of history to have traveled to the South Pole in that way. Chris is an amazing storyteller, and I hope you enjoy this conversation about two parents risking it all for a chance at an extraordinary adventure. Chris' book about the trip, The Expedition: Two Parents Risk Life and Family in an Extraordinary Quest to the South Pole , comes out September 3, 2019.

Ep. 549: A 108 Day Journey Along the Spine of Asia Revisited - Oli France
01:04:27
Originally Published December 11, 2017 From Oli's book: "Midway through a major house renovation and just months from his wedding day, the timing couldn’t have been worse. Yet, in late 2015, Oli France, a hapless kitchen salesman with a history of impromptu adventures, decided to quit his job and begin a unique expedition. His journey began in Hong Kong, and over the next 108 days, he traveled overland, by any means, across eleven countries to reach Istanbul. Along the way, Oli was lost in a land-mined jungle, detained, interrogated and spied upon. He skirted avalanches, frostbite, and severe dehydration as he completed fourteen audacious mountain climbs in mid-winter. Oli celebrated three new year festivals, partied with locals and found forgotten dinosaur footprints in a remote Tajik valley. This is the story of one man’s journey into some of the most scarcely documented corners of Asia, describing the kind heart of humanity and the immense challenges posed by mountains off the beaten track."

Ep. 548: Self-Supported Paddleboarding Adventure in Nepal - Liam Kirkham
01:00:46
Usually, we hear from folks climbing the record-breaking peaks of the Himalayas when we talk about Nepal. However, today is a little different. We’re actually heading downhill and talking about an epic river trip by Liam Kirkham, a veteran guest of the show and a fantastic storyteller. He was previously on episode 344 talking about solo winter kayaking trip through the Grand Canyon. Liam recently became a father and was trying to combat what so many people tell him, “you’ll have no time for that” or “your priorities will change”. He’s learned that they were half right. As a way to ensure he’d do something epic to kickoff fatherhood, he bought a non-refundable plane ticket to Nepal and let the idea of the journey grow from there. A few months earlier he had intended to do a paddleboard trip down the River Thames but life had gotten in the way, however, the remnants of a paddleboard trip were still lingering in his mind. He started reading guidebooks and looking at maps for a river that would be suitable. He also began looking for someone to go with him. After several pints of beer with a good friend (with no experience) he convinced him to join. The adventure was on!

Ep. 547: Guiding Adventures in Hostile Places - Oli France
01:03:31
Despite studying outdoor leadership at university and filling his summers with adventure travel, Oli found himself falling into an incredibly boring job as a kitchen salesman. After getting to the point where he couldn’t take it anymore, in the middle of a major house remodel, and months away from getting married, Olie decided to undertake a solo winter journey from Hong Kong to Istanbul along the mountainous spine of Asia. During that adventure, he climbed 14 mountains in the 11 countries he visited and the journey became the basis of his first book, ‘The Trail of the Mountain Folk’. Since then, he has lead groups on overseas adventures to destinations including Iraq, Somalia, DRC, Sudan, and Turkmenistan. Overall, he’s taken clients to 13 countries in total and 60 countries he’s traveled to personally. With a keen sense of balance, he has become a specialist in taking in doing personal trips and taking paying clients to hostile environments and situations, like being detained for five days in Uzbekistan, navigating through minefields in Iraq and Laos, avoiding car-bombings in Beirut, being caught in a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, dodging avalanches and frostbite, getting stuck in a militia-run town in the DRC, facing down the barrel of a gun, and being stranded alone without water in a remote desert valley. There have been so many occasions where he has had to find the resilience to continue, and more latterly, to have good leadership to keep his groups safe. Could you do this for a living?

Ep. 545: Fulfilling Your Parent's Dream Through Adventure - Tom Knox
46:17
Sometimes our adventure is about so much more than our desire to fulfill our dreams. For Tom Knox's parents, driving the length of the US west coast was always something they wanted to do. However, due to cancer and Alzheimer's, that dream remained unfulfilled when they died. In an effort to carry on the adventurous spirit of his parents, Tom decided he would bike the route in remembrance of them and in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's. Tom is a normal guy, taking precious PTO in order to make this adventure happen. We caught up with him a few weeks before he left. You can follow Tom here: Instagram - @ridetoremember2019 ( https://www.instagram.com/ridetoremember2019/?hl=en ) Facebook - @Ridetoremember2019 ( https://www.facebook.com/Ridetoremember2019-2124602344299617/ ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 544: Using Financial Independence to Fuel a Life of Adventure - Chris Mamula
58:07
With any adventure, finances have to be part of the planning. That planning can begin months or years before the adventure even begins. Some folks decide to put it all on a credit card. Others knock on the door of hundreds of potential sponsors to pay for their trips while others just decide to suffer immensely on the adventure because of lack of funds (been there, done that). Doesn't it make more sense to build a frugal and thoughtful lifestyle that allows adventures to be more realistic, more often? Chris Mamula joins us today to talk about some very easy and key steps that anyone can do to help make adventures more possible in their lives. Chris is an avid adventurer and has achieved financial independence and decided to retire from physical therapy at age 41, giving him years of possible adventures for him and his family.

Ep. 538: Balancing Normal Life as a Career Adventurer - Alastair Humphreys
58:03
Alastair Humphreys is an adventurer, author, and motivational speaker. His first big adventure was completing a four-year bicycle journey around the world that consisted of 46,000 miles cycling and changed his life forever. After the trip, he popularized the idea of microadventures - short, local, accessible adventures for the average person.  This idea helped him achieve becoming a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012. Alastair is a huge inspiration of mine and I hope you enjoy our conversation about life, parenting, and the delicate balance between normal life and pursuing adventure.

49:53
As if climbing a typical 14,000 ft mountain isn't enough of an accomplishment, Junaid and his buddy, Luke, successfully summited every one of the 58 Colorado 14ers in a single continuous hike. The journey was about 1,300 miles with a total elevation gain close to 300,000 feet. They hiked desolate Forst Service roads, class 5 traverses, many sections of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trail, as well as cross-country travel. It's an epic adventure to say the least! www.14ersthruhike.com ( http://www.14ersthruhike.com/ ) www.bigcitymountaineers.org ( http://www.bigcitymountaineers.org/ ) Twitter: @JunaidDawud ( https://twitter.com/JunaidDawud ) Facebook: @junaidthehiker ( https://www.facebook.com/junaidthehiker ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 536: Building the First Climbing School in Iraq - Ryan Shuler and Milosz Pierwola
54:26
Imagine taking the adventure sport you love and being among the first to teach that sport in a part of the world that hasn't been possible until recently. That’s exactly what adventurer Milosz Pierwola and veteran Ryan Shuler are accomplishing in Iraq. Their plan is to build the first climbing school in Iraq in the city of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdish Mountains. They’re fundraising to gather professional climbing equipment as well as build a climbing wall with local aspiring climbers, who have self-learned to climb solely from videos found on the internet. I hope you enjoy the story behind this epic project! Also, if you can, get involved! From the project’s website: “ Our project will establish the first climbing school in the country of Iraq, creating gateways where a culture once saw barriers, through their indomitable mountains. Classes will focus on rock climbing and mountaineering skills that will enable expeditions to discover the as of yet unclimbed local peaks. The program will take place in a successful community center established in 2007 that services over 1,500 children and adults. It will be headed by a group of Iraqi mountaineers who have overcome great adversity, such as forging their own gear, to learn how to climb. The facility is equipped with classrooms, theater/cinema, internet, and most importantly, 5 hectares/12 acres of land upon which we will construct a 9 m/30 ft tall climbing wall. In addition to the wall, we will deliver a complete assortment of climbing equipment and publish the first native language mountaineering instructional book, Basic Principles of Mountaineering , translated from French.” More info about the project: http://adventuremilo.com/category/iraq/ ( adventuremilo.com/category/iraq ) Milosz’s Facebook: @AdventureMilo ( https://www.facebook.com/AdventureMilo/ ) Milosz’s Instagram: @adventuremilo ( https://www.instagram.com/adventuremilo/ ) Milosz’s Twitter: @adventuremilo ( https://twitter.com/adventuremilo?lang=en ) Ryan’s Instagram: @thefattestclimberyouknow ( https://www.instagram.com/thefattestclimberyouknow/ ) Photo Credit Here ( http://adventuremilo.com/category/iraq/ ) Athletic Brewing Company is a pioneer in craft non-alcoholic beer.

Ep. 535: Taking Opportunities to Adventure as a Lifestyle - Andy Stout
01:11:58
Andy is what I call a serial adventurer. It’s more of a lifestyle than it is one particular trip that creates his “story”. His ability to make the world his playground is envious, but it’s his charming and genuine demeanor that helps you understand his thirst for adventure in new places is who he is and where he’s happiest. Andy is one of those guys that helps us all see that the world is not as bad as some folks would want us to believe. Andy has the traveling chops to prove it as he’s visited over 60 countries and has lived and worked all over the world. Recently he biked across the US to raise awareness for brain cancer, the condition that took his father not long ago. That’s going to be a large part of the subject of our interview. There are incredible stories of generosity, hope, and grit. Keep shining on, Andy. I know your dad is proud!

On a clear Saturday morning, professional fire captain and private pilot Brian Brown, his wife, and younger daughter headed out in their Cessna Sky Hawk for a weekend with their elder daughter. But unexpected severe conditions send the craft into the treacherous War Eagle Idaho mountainside…a remote place that would make communication and rescue nearly impossible―if they survived.

Ep. 532: Breaking Free from Spreadsheets to Handcraft Wooden Paddle Boards - Tony Smith
55:26
It’s not easy leaving something secure to go after something so uncertain. However, that’s one of the necessary ingredients to have a true adventure. Tony Smith knew that when there was sawdust left in his hair during a work meeting after working on his passion for crafting over a lunch break, it was time to take a leap. He left a stable career to jump full-time into handcrafted wooden paddle boards but gave himself the deadline to try it for a year.  With a young family and no real certainty it would work out, the journey of building Jarvis Boards was truly an adventure of a lifetime. Today, 5 years into the adventure, Jarvis Boards is still going strong and getting more and more publicity. Today, we talk to Tony to get a feel for what it was really like to make the leap, the reality of risk when doing what you love for a living, and the highs and lows of growing upon a new and solid foundation.

Ep. 531: Overlanding Full-Time with the Family Revisited - Luisa & Graeme Bell
01:06:32
Five years ago Luisa and Graeme Bell, along with their kids, Keelan and Jessica, set out to explore the African continent via Overland vehicle. After that epic journey, it only took a few days of being home in South Africa to realize that they needed to continue their adventure. So they put their existing lives aside, purchased a 2009 Land Rover Defender 130, and outfitted it for full-time living. Then the roaming began. Their travels have taken them around the African continent nearly twice, up through South and Central America, and winding them through the United States, Canada, and Alaska. We've caught up with them while they are house sitting in Baja Mexico. Listen in to hear how they do it and what experiences they've had so far!

Need something wild to do in the winter? You can hike (and skateboard some of) the entire 1,300 miles of endless pine forests, sandy beaches, and gator-infested swamps of the Florida Trail.

Ep. 529: How Argon Inflated Jackets Led to the Best Sleeping Pad in the Outdoors - Cory Tholl
48:43
A true adventure usually includes a few changes in the original plan. Some good and some bad. The same goes for the adventure of starting a business or introducing a product in the outdoor industry. When a crazy idea of having argon inflated jackets to keep warm was born, Cory Tholl was totally intrigued by the idea. So much so, he joined the small team and they got to work bringing the outdoor world one of the strangest twists on the tried and true jacket. The name of the whole venture became Klymit, and as they pursued this adventure of an idea it became clear that something needed to change.

Ep. 528: Long Distance Kitesurfing Revisited - Bowen Dwelle
01:20:48
Originally aired July 20, 2017 Bowen is a lifelong outdoors sports enthusiast (skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, open water swimming, trail running, MTB, kitesurfing, paragliding) and has in the last ten years become semi-professional kitesurfer. While most people think of kitesurfing for the freestyle (tricks) and perhaps also for wave riding, there are other disciplines that are gaining traction and progressing the sport: course racing, foil board kiting and his specialty: long distance. He has learned techniques to allow truly long-distance travel – 100+ miles in a day and 1000+ miles in a single journey by kite!

Ep. 524: Vol-Bivouac Paragliding 1,200-Km of the Canadian Rockies - Benjamin Jordan
01:16:27
Last summer, Benjamin Jordan realized his lifelong dream of flying his paraglider along the entire length of Canada's southern Rocky Mountains. From Roosville, Montana to Prince George, BC, the 37-year old, Nelson-based filmmaker flew his wind-powered aircraft across some of BC's and Alberta's most rugged wilderness while having to make strategic landings atop mountains to avoid electrical storms or touching down within the forbidden boundaries of Banff National Park. Despite the many challenges he encountered along the way, none compared to the psychological struggle of sitting alone in the alpine for weeks at a time, waiting for poor weather or wildfire smoke to clear so that he could fly on. Able to carry no more than 12-days of food, Jordan would occasionally land in populated areas to refuel before heading back up into the nearest summit to re-launch. Of the entire expedition, Jordan was most nervous, and excited, about soaring over the glaciers and alpine lakes of Jasper National Park, North America's only National Park to allow Paraglider travel. Though its remoteness and mystery have caused pilots to stay away, Jordan dedicated a complete year to studying Jasper's unique topography with the ambitious dream of becoming the first person to fly across her entirety. Despite extended waits between flights, his fortune continued for 50 consecutive days until the unprecedented levels wildfire smoke of late August left Jordan with no choice but to complete his 1200 km, un-supported journey on foot. During a 4-day (214 km) walk from McBride to Prince George, Jordan had time to reflect on his unique accomplishment while stepping into the record books for the Longest Vol-Biv (Fly-Camp) Expedition in America. A film depicting the entire journey will be released in the Spring of this year at theendlesschain.com ( http://theendlesschain.com/ ) benjaminjordan.com ( http://www.benjaminjordan.com/ ) @benjaminjordanadventure ( https://www.instagram.com/benjaminjordanadventure/?hl=en ) theschoolofdreams.org ( http://theschoolofdreams.org/ ) (philanthropic paragliding school in Malawi) Photo credit here ( http://benjaminjordan.com/photo/xbc/ ) ***ANNOUNCEMENT** ADVENTURE GRANT APPLICATION OPEN 5 MORE DAYS!!!* Go to athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ( https://www.athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ) to apply for our first ever $1,000 adventure grant, funded by Athletic Brewing Company!

Ep. 520: The C.A.R.E. Method of Dealing with Injury and Change - Bart Laemmel
01:19:06
Our lives as adventurers take totally unforeseen turns. It's the nature of the adventures themselves to do so. Sometimes, those turns can lead to a place where we can no longer continue our adventures or pursuing our sports. What are we to do? Bart has faced this dilemma head on and in my opinion, he's faced it with a ton of grace and positivity. So much so that he now helps others overcome the obstacle of "who am I?" when their bodies, minds, finances, relationships, etc. no longer allow them to do what they love to do. You may not be facing any adventure-threatening obstacles at the moment, but Bart's C.A.R.E. method is applicable to just about any life struggle, adventure related or not. ***ANNOUNCEMENT** ADVENTURE GRANT APPLICATION OPEN* Go to athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ( https://www.athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ) to apply for our first ever $1,000 adventure grant, funded by Athletic Brewing Company!

What is it like to rappel down into a deep sandstone slot and to wander where few have ever gone before? The magical lighting, otherworldly formations, and total lack of access to the outside world, canyoneering is a sport few ever experience and even fewer get to know it as well as Tom. canyoneeringusa.com ( http://www.canyoneeringusa.com/ ) Tom's book: Zion: Canyoneering by Tom Jones ( https://cusa.squarespace.com/store/zion-canyoneering-by-tom-jones ) Photo Credit here ( https://www.facebook.com/tom.jones.10888/photos_of?lst=100003365003599%3A100003100049767%3A1557950796 ). ***ANNOUNCEMENT** ADVENTURE GRANT APPLICATION OPEN* Go to athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ( https://www.athleticbrewing.com/adventure-grant-application ) to apply for our first ever $1,000 adventure grant, funded by Athletic Brewing Company!

Ep. 518: Ways to Pay for Your Adventure - Mason Gravley
39:55
Whenever I was starting to plan my first big adventures, one of my biggest questions was, how do people pay for these experiences? What I've learned is that there's no real secret out there. It's a lot of grinding, budgeting, side gigs, sacrifice, asking, etc. The process of funding your adventure is honestly an entirely separate and equally difficult adventure. For me, the preparation and planning was half the excitement and joy of adventures, and often was a much longer experience than the trip itself. This won't be a super organized or hugely insightful episode, just more of my thoughts and experiences on the subject. I hope you enjoy and I hope you share your adventure-funding tips and tricks with us!

Ep.514: North Face Climber and Alpine Start Coffee Founder - Matt Segal
46:01
Growing up, Matt was an unlikely candidate to become a professional climber.  Mostly because the southern beaches of Florida were his home. However, early on he showed promising climbing ability and began competing all over the country and world. After moving out to Colorado he began doing things very few climbers were doing, garnering the attention of The North Face. He signed with them and did climbs and expeditions all over the world. Noticing the lack of quality coffee on the market for backcountry sports, Matt’s mind began working. When back home in Colorado he would experiment with instant coffee combinations until he was satisfied. After talking his sister and some friends into going in with him, they started Alpine Start, the premier instant coffee for backpackers, climbers, and anyone in the adventure sports world. Today we’re talking to Matt about his story and how he balancing life on the rock and life in the business world.

Ep. 512: Creating Your Own Thru-Hiking Route - Erik Schlimmer
57:13
Erik is an experienced peak-bagger, long-distance hiker, author (of seven books), and has immense amounts of knowledge about off-trail travel and wilderness adventuring, especially in the northeast of America. He has climbed over 200 remote peaks in the Adirondacks during winter, with many of them not having a trail to the summit. He’s an expert in toponym research (why things are named what they are) and sustainable trail design. All this knowledge and skill has led him to achieve what many outdoor enthusiasts can only dream, create his own thru-hiking route; the Trans Adirondack, a 235-mile backpacking route in the Adirondack mountains that includes off-trail navigation and bushwacking. It’s broken down like this, 182 miles of trails (76%), 50 miles of roads (21%), and 8 miles of trackless woods (3%) to get from one end of the Adirondack Park to the other. His knowledge is vast, his demeanor unassuming, and his attitude superb. I hope you’re as inspired as I am after this conversation with a truly humble legend of trail-travel and development.

Ep. 511: The Sharp End of Life and Raising Alex Honnold - Dierdre Wolownick-Honnold
01:01:39
Long before her son was doing some of the most incredible climbing in the world and her daughter was solo bike touring around the west, Dierdre was living a life full of adventure. From moving to different countries and starting orchestras from scratch to raising two kids by herself and working much more than fulltime, Dierdre enjoyed taking on out-of-the-box challenges and seeing what she’s made of. Never to be one to think of age as a limitation, Dierdre started running at the age of 55 and became climbing at 58.  Within a few years, she was running marathons and by 66 she became the oldest woman to climb El Capitan, the same rock that her son, Alex, would free solo. It’s evident in both her children that they were raised by someone with lots of room to live outside the box.

Ep. 505: Dog Sledding and Life in Alaska - Iditarod Racer, Kristin Knight Pace
01:05:35
Kristin Knight Pace is one tough person. Not many people would go to Alaska during the winter, completely alone, to take care of a team of sled dogs to get over a recent divorce. However, that's exactly what she did. That toughness has also led her to become one of only 29 women to complete both the Iditarod and the Yukon Question 1000-mile sled dog races. Kristin is now remarried and has started a new journey, motherhood. She also works as a wilderness planner for Denali National Park and has recently written a book about her experiences, This Much Country. It can be found following the link below or pretty much anywhere else you buy books. We hope you enjoy listening to this life outside the box!

Ep. 497: Rowing Across the Atlantic in 43 Days - Laura Try
01:00:43
Laura doesn’t particularly like rowing, which sounds crazy after you realize she rowed a boat 3,000 miles across the Atlantic with a team of three other women in just 43 days 2 hours and 20 minutes. On top of that, they managed to do this by rowing in 2-hour shifts, 24-hours a day, every single day. It’s not rowing that Luara loves, but a pure and unfiltered adventure and the push of the human spirit to experience it. We hope you enjoy this wonderful conversation around adventure and the unexpected joys and struggles when you put yourself out there.

Ep. 496: Triple Triple Crowner - Heather "Anish" Anderson
55:08
In 2018, Heather Anderson became the first woman to hike all three of the "Triple Crown" thru-hikes; Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails in a single calendar year. The 7,900-mile journey took 251 days to complete and led her to become a 2019 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. She also holds the overall record for self-supported fastest known time on the Pacific Crest Trail (60 days) and the women's self-supported FKT on the Appalachian Trail (54 days). Her book, Thirst: 2600 Miles to Home came out earlier this month, which recounts her story of leaving her unsatisfying job, marriage, and life after her first thru-hike in order to return back to the trail and begin hiking again.

Ep. 494: From Collapsed Spine to Accomplished Climber - Astrid Southam
01:05:41
Adventure (ad·ven·ture): an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity. That basically sums up life itself. The most unexpected, seemingly unfair, and hazardous things happen to us at every turn. We want adventure, but don't always love when it shows up. A life-altering injury is, by the definition above, an adventure. Well, it's not always exciting, but you get the picture. To go from a collapsed spine at the age of 19 to being on a sponsored climbing expedition to the Ivory Coast is not an overnight journey, nor is it pleasant, but it is adventure. Astrid's story is one of hope, patience and sheer grit to rise from what many would call a crippling situation (literally) to seeing the beauty in what happens to all of us at some point and accepting it as what life is all about. Adventure doesn't always lead us down a peaceful path but teaches us to find peace no matter what path we're on.

Ep. 484: Wilderness Coaching and Living Boldly - Sara Schulting-Kranz
54:17
Not everyone chooses to live a life outside the box. Sometimes, it chooses you. Five years ago, Schulting-Kranz was living her life very much within the box. She hosted parties, watched her kids play sports, paddle boarded on the gorgeous coast of California near her home when one day her husband of 17 years admits he's been unfaithful to her for the last 14 years, with a man. Her life deteriorated in front of her eyes as she realized everything had to change. Not only was the news devastating, but it also rehashed old memories of being raped at 17 years old, which led to her first son. Sara didn't wallow in her sorrow but took the opportunity to pursue her dream to live a life connected to the outdoors and to show the healing power of nature to as many people as she possibly could. Thus, Live Boldly Coaching was born and her story of pain has become one of strength and compassion with all sorts of adventures, like earning a Guinness World Record for leading her friend Shawn Cheshire to record the fastest rim-to-rim-to-rim run across the Grand Canyon by a blind person. No matter where she goes, she can now be found on mountaintops all around the country wearing a glamorous pair of bright red high heel shoes.

Ep. 482: Paragliding off Volcanoes – Adrian Garza
47:58
When Adrian’s wife thought it would be a good idea to learn how to Paraglide, she probably didn’t foresee that in a relatively short amount of time, her husband would be summiting and flying solo off volcanoes near their home in Mexico City. Obviously, Adrian took to the sport quickly and it gave him a completely different view of his other favorite hobby, climbing. But with their recent family addition of a little girl and limited time off work, Adrian needed a way to summit mountains over 18,000 feet and return home in the same day. This led him to sleeping in a hypoxic chamber to decrease the amount of time needed to acclimate to high elevation.  Talk about dedication to adventure. What’s your excuse? Adrian will also be supporting Marko Hrgetic in the Red Bull X-Alps this June. www.instagram.com/ponchoelpiloto ( http://www.instagram.com/ponchoelpiloto ) @ponchoelpiloto http://youtube.com/ponchoelpiloto Save 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel.

Sometimes life hits you hard. Sometimes life hits you hard multiple time in a row. For Mike Cohen, he knows the feeling all too well. From surviving cancer to a heart transplant, not a day goes by that Mike isn't completely grateful for his ability to be alive. That's why this fall he'll be riding a bicycle across the country to meet the family of the man who he received his heart from. He knows that life is too precious, too fragile, and too interesting to not completely appreciate it and make the most of it.

Ep. 479: Using Nature to Navigate - Tristan Gooley
48:58
Tristan Gooley is a New York Times -bestselling author and an avid outdoorsman. He has led expeditions on five continents, climbed mountains all over the world and is the only living person to have both flown and sailed solo across the Atlantic. After realizing he doesn’t love talking about the gear and “stuff” of expeditions and adventures, he was curious as to why adventure called him so strongly to do these trips. Was it the thrill, the experience, or something else? He eventually realized he loved the act of “finding his way” through Nature using unconventional means, Nature itself. Thus began a lifelong passion for learning how Nature tells us where we are and how to get where we’re going. In his books, you’ll learn how to “read” Nature to find your way.  Things like locating north using puddles, finding your proximity to civilization using plants and using the behavior of animals to forecast the weather. Don’t tune out, because Tristan shares why these skills are important for the person who will never be lost in the outdoors.

Ep. 478: Connecting Veterans with the Outdoors and Each Other - Todd Crevier
52:40
When Todd got back from deployment, he had a mound of issues to work through. Divorce, drug addiction, and chronic pain all led to him really struggling with the transition to civilian life. Not to mention, not having many folks around him that understood what war was like. A family vacation to Yellowstone National Park changed everything. Todd felt the wilderness had given him the confidence to act on his dream of connecting veterans and their families with each other by connecting them with the outdoors.

JR Harris was introduced to the Boy Scouts while living in New York City. His parents at the foresight to interest their son in things that would spark his curiosity and learning, rather than get caught up in the struggles of everyday life in the projects. This influence has led JR to the most unlikely of wildernesses, completely alone, for the last 50 plus years! When he’s not trekking through Nepal or the Andes, JR owns and operates, the oldest African American-owned research and consulting firm in the United States, JHR Marketing Services. He is also the author of Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker, which details a handful of his many adventures in the outdoors. Despite his constant roaming through the most remote locations on Earth, JR still proudly calls New York City his home. Join us today as we talk with a truly remarkable person who has not only built a life around the outdoors and New York City but a life we can all strive to have. https://www.jrinthewilderness.com/ Way Out There: Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker ( https://www.amazon.com/Way-Out-There-Adventures-Wilderness/dp/1680511203 ) Instagram @jrinthewilderness ( https://www.instagram.com/jrinthewilderness/?hl=en ) Facebook @jrobert.harris.7 ( https://www.facebook.com/jrobert.harris.7 ) JR in the Dolomites 20 Year Old JR with the last 35 cents of his New York to Alaska Adventure.

Ep. 475: Business Owner, Ultrarunner, and Full-Time RVing with Family of 5 - Caleb Simpson
46:03
When Caleb sold his previous business, Bearded Brothers, his wife, Kristy, had the crazy idea of being debt free and living in an RV full-time. Everyone around them thought they were nuts! Nearly 4 years into their journey, a lot of the people who called them crazy are now jealous of their freedom, lack of “stuff”, and ability to go where the wind takes them. Caleb and Kristy are both small business owners who are able to operate their businesses out of the compact dwelling space. They have no end their adventure in sight but admit that RV living with three kids and running businesses absolutely has its unique challenges, but it’s a tradeoff compared with a normal route in life. Caleb is also an avid ultrarunner, taking the home and family to races all over the country. Instead of having to go to a stale hotel room after a long race, he can walk right into his house.  Pretty cool! https://www.instagram.com/freedomintow/ ( https://www.instagram.com/freedomintow/?hl=en ) https://www.instagram.com/hemp_daddys/?hl=en ( https://www.instagram.com/hemp_daddys/?hl=en ) https://hempdaddys.com/ ( https://hempdaddys.com/ ) http://www.freedomintow.com Save 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel (@peakrefuel).

Ep. 473: The Sport of Finding Bigfoot, Seriously - Laura Krantz
46:07
“There’s no way Bigfoot could be real... ...at least that’s what I thought.” Laura Krantz is a self-described skeptic. However, several years ago she read an article about Grover Krantz, an anthropology profession and Bigfoot researcher. She thought it odd they shared last names. After more digging, she was surprised to discover that Grover was a cousin to her grandfather. She had to learn more about this mysterious world of folks who believe in the creature but aren’t “crazy”.  What she found was fascinating. These aren’t tin hat wearing antisocial hermits in the forest. They are professors, teachers, forest rangers, and police officers that all had undeniably strange encounters with a creature which they never thought they’d believe in. Laura, a former NPR producer, documented her journey which she turned into Wild Thing, a podcast about the lore and reality of who or what Bigfoot really is and her quest to know more about the folks who search for it.

Ep. 472: Building an Outdoor Brand from Scratch - James Collie
50:49
I don't know about you, but after a long hike in the sun, an ice cold drink sounds pretty spectacular. In an effort to do just that, James Collie noticed there weren't any products on the market to make that easy to accomplish. He decided to put garbage bags inside his day pack to hold ice. The results were dismal. He had a soaking wet back, wet gear, and an overall terrible experience trying to solve the problem. It wouldn't be for another 20 years before he made a legitimate effort to do something about it. Thus, ICEMULE Coolers was born. They make the world's best wearable cooler. After five years, ICEMULE has built a name for itself and we get to hear the inside story of solving this problem in the outdoor industry from scratch.

Outdoor photographer and writer, Philip Kramer, found himself working too much and not outside having enough fun. So, in 2013 he sat down and gave some thought to his predicament. His decision was to thru-hike the 2,650 mile Pacific Crest Trail. Thinking that he would be off on his own enjoying solitude, he quickly discovered this is not the case. However, even though he was on the trail with a bunch of new thru-hiking friends, Philip realized how revitalizing 6 months on the trail can be. Enjoy!

Daniel has struggled with depression for years, even getting to the point he didn’t want to live anymore. After his most recent suicide attempt, he knew things needed to change, quickly. His friend decided to introduce him to bicycles. Little did they know, he'd soon fall in love with the freedom of riding and set out on a bicycle adventure to every contiguous US state to raise awareness for suicide prevention and to connect veterans, like himself, with each other and a greater sense of community. After 8 months on the road, Daniel has some incredible stories to tell as well as a new outlook on just how friendly complete strangers can be. I hope you enjoy our conversation and consider helping Daniel continue his journey. He’s probably going through your town! Keep it up, Daniel!

Upon leaving the military, she knew she did not want a standard job and "normal" life. So, what did she do? She flew to New Zealand to bicycle the country. This started a series of adventures that led her to compete in the world half Ironman, running (and winning second place female) the Marathon De Sables, and many other adventures. And she is not slowing down. She is back on to fill us in on the Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc – a 171 km race around Mont Blanc. She offers coaching services as well through her company, Reach For More Coaching. She shares much about what it takes to build an adventure-focused lifestyle. rfmcoaching.com ( https://www.rfmcoaching.com/ ) facebook.com/RFMCoaching ( https://www.facebook.com/RFMCoaching ) twitter.com/RFMCoaching ( https://twitter.com/RFMCoaching ) instagram.com/rfmcoaching ( https://www.instagram.com/rfmcoaching ) Save 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel (@peakrefuel).

Ep. 460: The Long Ranger Part 2 - Justin Simoni
49:53
Part 2 Justin Simoni is synonymous with "pure adventure."  This guy's self-powered running, cycling, and climbing trips are mind-bending in difficulty and require unbelievable mental endurance. He's well known for riding a bike to and climbing all of Colorado's 14ers in one fell swoop back in 2014.  However, a few years later, that wasn't enough. This led him to bike to and climb Colorado's highest 100 peaks, nearly doubling the mountains climbed in his 14ers achievement. I hope you enjoy our two-part conversation on adventures and how he makes them happen.

Ep. 457: Helping Others Find Careers in Adventure - Courtney Condy
52:16
Courtney Condy graduated college in 2013 and jumped right into the corporate sector thinking she would have time later to travel and pursue her adventures. She was wrong. After finding inspiration from a friend and none from her job, she finally booked an Everest Base Camp Trek in 2015. On that journey, she ended up almost dying in the April 25 Nepal earthquake. It was an adventure, to say the least. It changed her whole life to the point she opted out of her desk job and started working as an adventure travel guide all over the world. Earlier this year after seeing a gap in the adventure career market she decided to break away from her job, once again, to launch her own company, Occupation Wild, where he hopes of helping others find their dream job and live a life beyond 9 to 5. www.occupationwild.com ( http://www.occupationwild.com ) https://www.instagram.com/occupation_wild/?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/courtneymcondy/?hl=en Save 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel (@peakrefuel).
