Ep. 518: Ways to Pay for Your Adventure - Mason Gravley

May 13, 2019 39:56

Description:

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

May 3, 2019 46:02

Description:

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

Apr 29, 2019 57:14

Description:

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

Apr 26, 2019 01:01:40

Description:

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.

We hope you enjoy this conversation.

Ep. 505: Dog Sledding and Life in Alaska - Iditarod Racer, Kristin Knight Pace

Apr 12, 2019 01:05:36

Description:

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. 502: Mountain Biking the 282 Munros of Scotland - Sean Green

Apr 5, 2019 01:00:28

Description:

Today’s Life Outside the Box episode features someone who’s balancing the delicate act of being an epic adventurer and a normal family man. Sean Green uses his precious time off work to climb and bike down the Munros of Scotland, a list of 282 mountain peaks that are scattered across the country.

Currently, Sean is approaching the halfway point of the project and it has been nothing short of a true adventure thus far. From terrible weather, broken vehicles, and totally decimated itineraries, there’s something all of us can learn from Sean, you don’t have to be a fulltime adventure athlete to do incredible things.

We hope you enjoy this down to earth conversation and we hope you get out there and plan something yourself.

Ep. 499: Becoming More Wild with Monkii - Dan Vinson

Mar 29, 2019 42:49

Description:

If you've ever done a workout in the wilderness, you know how awesome of an experience it can be. The smells, the sights, the feeling in the air once you get your heart rate going. It beats the heck out of any gym, any day. That was the inspiration behind monkii's co-founder, Dan Vinson. How can you get an epic workout from anywhere, especially in the wild? Well, Dan and his friend came up with monkii, the simple to use, easy to set up, and awesome workout tool that can go with you to the most remote places on earth.

In today's story, we hear about Dan's background, where the idea for monkii bars came from, his crazy PR stunts and very successful Kickstarter campaigns. It's an inspiring tale of taking what's never been done and doing it wildly. 

Live wild or die, my friends.

Ep. 497: Rowing Across the Atlantic in 43 Days - Laura Try

Mar 25, 2019 01:00:44

Description:

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

Mar 22, 2019 55:09

Description:

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

Mar 18, 2019 01:05:42

Description:

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.    Instagram: @astridsoutham   Project Côte d'Ivoire https://www.projectci.co.uk/   Instagram: @projectci_uk

Ep. 490: Backpacking Legend - Andrew Skurka

Mar 8, 2019 50:11

Description:

Andrew is essentially a "professional backpacker" who is best known for his long-distance backpacking trips, many of which are firsts.

For instance, his 6,875-mile Great Western Loop, his 7,778-mile Sea-to-Sea Rou, e and his 4,679-mile "loop" of Alaska on foot, raft, and ski. He also has completed a plethora of shorter adventurers that would be on anyone's bucket list.

He's been considered the John Muir and Henry David Thoreau of Generation Y, was Backpacker Magazine Person of the Year, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, among other awards.  

However, today's episode is not specifically about those adventures, but about what life has been like after those achievements. How has he built a sustainable career from backpacking? What future adventures is he planning?  Listen in to find out.

Erika Bergman is a submarine pilot, engineer, and a National Geographic Explorer. We talked with her back in episode 427 about taking Sir Richard Branson and Fabien Cousteau (grandson of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau) on a submarine adventure into the depth of Belize's Great Blue Hole.

The mission was successfully completed back in December and we're having her recount the adventure today!

In 2013 she received a National Geographic Explorers grant for her "Classrooms Under the Sea" expedition which live-streamed submarine expeditions to classrooms. She's a superb storyteller with many interesting tales and accomplishments to share!

Ep. 484: Wilderness Coaching and Living Boldly - Sara Schulting-Kranz

Feb 22, 2019 54:18

Description:

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.

Get out there and live boldly.

Ep. 482: Paragliding off Volcanoes – Adrian Garza

Feb 18, 2019 47:59

Description:

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.

Ep. 481: Chasing Adventure with a New Heart, Literally - Mike Cohen

Feb 15, 2019 52:48

Description:

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

Feb 11, 2019 48:59

Description:

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

Feb 8, 2019 52:41

Description:

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. Thus, New England Adventure was born.

Ep. 476: Over 50 Years of Adventure and Counting – JR Harris

Feb 4, 2019 56:19

Description:

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.

Ep. 475: Business Owner, Ultrarunner, and Full-Time RVing with Family of 5 - Caleb Simpson

Feb 1, 2019 46:04

Description:

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!

Ep. 473: The Sport of Finding Bigfoot, Seriously - Laura Krantz

Jan 28, 2019 46:08

Description:

“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. Enjoy!

Ep. 472: Building an Outdoor Brand from Scratch - James Collie

Jan 25, 2019 50:50

Description:

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. 

Enjoy!

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!

Ep. 470: Riding a Bicycle to 48 States for Suicide Awareness - Daniel Hurd

Jan 21, 2019 47:01

Description:

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!

Ep. 469: Glamping Hub Co-Founder - Ruben Martinez

Jan 18, 2019 41:54

Description:

Ruben Martinez wanted to do something that "forced" he and his friend to always be able to hang out. The idea they came up with? Glamping Hub, a travel booking platform similar to Airbnb, but for unique outdoor accommodations that give guests direct access to Mother Nature. 

The idea grew! They went from around 8,000 listings a few years ago to nearly 40,000 today through their online platform. 

I hope you enjoy our conversation about what Ruben's experience has been thus far with growing a company that connects thousands of people with the outdoors.

Ep. 468: Ultra Running and the UTMB Race Revisited - Anna-Marie Watson

Jan 17, 2019 01:03:35

Description:

Anna-Marie Watson grew up in an outdoor-loving, adventurous family. The adventures continued as she served nearly a decade in the British Army. 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.

Ep. 466: Breaking into the Ski Industry with Powder7 Founders/Owners - Jordan and Amy Jones

Jan 11, 2019 01:06:09

Description:

Leaving a great job with good benefits to start a company that's technically illegal to operate out of your apartment is a big jump at best, completely irrational and foolish at worst. Today, Amy and Jordan wouldn't have it any other way with building Powder7, considered one of Outside Magazine's Best Places to Work.

This episode is filled with humor, insight, and adventure, like the time Jordan beat Lance Armstrong by an inch in a half-Ironman race. I hope you enjoy this conversation around life, business, and adventure sports!

Ep. 460: The Long Ranger Part 2 - Justin Simoni

Dec 28, 2018 49:54

Description:

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. 

Hope y'all had a Merry Christmas!

Ep. 457: Helping Others Find Careers in Adventure - Courtney Condy

Dec 21, 2018 52:17

Description:

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   https://www.instagram.com/occupation_wild/?hl=en   https://www.instagram.com/courtneymcondy/?hl=en

Dec 13, 2018 01:01:13

Did you know that bears don't actually growl as Hollywood has you believe? In fact, in most movies, a bear growl is actually a wolf growl.

In this episode Mike McIntosh, of the Bear With Us Sanctuary Rehabilitation Center, helps us understand what we need to know about living with bears while playing in the wild.

Ep. 447: Reshaping Your Identity After Injury - Bart Laemmel

Nov 26, 2018 01:19:36

Description:

At some point in the pursuit of our adventure sports, we will have an injury. As we get older those injuries and the slowing of our bodies can compile to limit our abilities drastically. Who are you as a person if you couldn't do your adventure sport(s) anymore? Are you willing to think about how much of your identity is wrapped in what you can achieve athletically? 

Today's episode discusses the challenges and beauty that limitations can bring if we're willing to remain positive and look for opportunities to discover new passions. I hope you enjoy Bart's story about reshaping his identity and discovering new adventure sports as his body "directs" him.

Ep. 441: Free Soloist - Austin Howell

Nov 12, 2018 01:22:50

Description:

Free Soloing is definitely stupid in a lot of ways. We don't condone the sport. However, Austin Howell struck me as particularly calculated and contemplative in his approach to soloing. Listen in on what goes on in the mind of a free soloist and Austin's thoughts on why the danger is not his forte nor his focus.

Ep. 437: Life Outside the Box - First Solo Human-Powered Circumnavigation of the Globe - Erden Eruc

Nov 2, 2018 01:01:23

Description:

Erden Eruc has a world-class adventure resume. With 15 Guinness World Records, tens of thousands of miles of first-ever human-powered achievements, and an emotional story that started his journeys, you'd think he'd have a best-selling book and endless speaking engagements by now. As you'll hear, none of these things have come into fruition for Erden. It has been a grind from the beginning to the present. However, that hasn't crushed his thirst for adventure and need for bigger and bigger challenges. It certainly hasn't taken away from the amazing feats Erden has accomplished. Actually, the fact he doesn't have huge sponsors and crowds of fans makes his motivation all the more impressive.

What are you willing to go through to chase your dream? Will it be worth it in the end? Listen in on today's episode from someone who knows how lonely it can be on the top.

Ep. 435: Solo Circumnavigation of Lake Winnipeg at 18 Years Old - Alex Martin

Oct 29, 2018 01:00:06

Description:

Alex is not your typical 18 years old. Instead of setting out to trade school, college, or hanging out at home after the summer of high school graduation, Alex decided he wanted to do something adventurous to transition into this new phase of life called adulthood. That desire led him to kayak 1,750 km around the edges of Lake Winnipeg, something incredibly daunting considering the remoteness of much of the lake as well as the unpredictable weather.
Alex is incredibly articulate for his age and understands that this trip was an amazing opportunity to show the world the importance of keeping resources like Lake Winnipeg free of pollution, invasive species, and a refuge for the human soul. He’s already an experienced adventurer and we’re super excited that Alex joined us for this interview as we’re sure he’ll be an even bigger name in the outdoor community very soon.

Unfortunately, just as he left his Midwest roots for global pursuits, the bouldering of Missouri and other heartland states experienced a resurgence. On this episode, Allen shares, with us, the adventure to be had in the Midwest and he makes a strong argument for the Midwest's rock climbing bragging rights altering some stereotypes along the way.

Ep. 416: How to Avoid One of the Biggest Dangers of Adventure Sports

Sep 3, 2018 57:20

Description:

This show departs from our usual content in that we are sharing how to avoid one of the biggest and most dangerous pitfalls of adventure sports.  No, not the bike or ski crash.  Not getting lost in the wilderness.  No sinking boats or parachute failures. None of that.  This is how to avoid the most common and dangerous attacks of wildlife!  Ya really.  Not the big ones, though. The tiny, nefarious, forsaken, ticks and mosquitoes, and biting flies, and the rest. Seriously, this is probably the biggest nuisance and deterrent to people getting out into nature and having fun. Emily Dix joins us to share her love of the outdoors and how her family business is solving the problems of vector born illnesses.  No more excuses!

Ep. 409: The First Woman to Ride Around the World on a Motorcycle Revisited - Elspeth Beard

Aug 16, 2018 59:26

Description:

In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6.

Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead.

When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today.

Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

Listen in as we revisit one of our favorite overlanding shows.  Several years ago Luisa and Graeme Bell along with their kids Keelan and Jessica set out to explore the African continent via overland vehicle.

So they put their existing lives aside, purchased a 2009 Land Rover Defender 130 and outfitted it for full-time living. The Bells then started to roam. Their travels have taken them around the African continent nearly twice and then up through South and Central America winding them through the United States and up to 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!

LOTB Preview - Life Outside of the Box Series - Out with the 9-5 and In with Costa Rica! - Jen Beck Seymour and Greg Seymour

Jun 7, 2018 12:16

Description:

Jen Beck Seymour and Greg Seymour found themselves bogged down in the daily 9-5 grind as many of us do. They were working long hours in Dallas having spent 20+ years in their corporate jobs earning good money only to live a life of comfort and purchasing their toys, but realized that actually had very little time together to use those toys and spent it with each other. They weren't particularly happy in their situation. Sound familiar at all? When Greg's health appeared to be taking a turn for the worse due to stress, the two decided they must find a better way. They considered other options to stay working elsewhere in the US, but decided that a major relocation and mind-shift was in order. Jen and Greg ultimately decided to retire early, sell the house as well as all of the toys and move south to Costa Rica. This was Greg's idea which did not sit very well with Jen at first, but she eventually warmed up to it and to Costa Rica they went. Listen in to hear their story and the happiness that followed their monumental decision.

Ep. 381: First Woman to Kayak the Amazon from Source to Sea - Darcy Gaechter

Jun 4, 2018 01:00:34

Description:

In 2013, Darcy Gaechter became the first woman (and vegan) to kayak the Amazon River from source to sea. With blistering lips and irradiated fingernails, her team of three paddlers tackled Class V whitewater for twenty-five days in a row; just barely survived a dynamite laden canyon being prepared for a hydroelectric dam, and pled for mercy at the hands of the murderous Ashaninka people who remained somewhat convinced we had come to steal their children's organs. In a desperate act meant to give me some pretense of control, Darcy cut off all of her hair just before they entered Peru’s notoriously violent “Red Zone.” The hope was to pass for a boy and be seen as less of a target. Despite all odds, they reached the Atlantic Ocean 4,300 miles and 148 days of kayaking later. Upon reaching the Atlantic, the three, an esoteric computer programmer from London, a vegan girl from Aspen, CO and her begrudging boyfriend who would become the first man to kayak the Amazon, “because his girlfriend made him”—became the first three people to kayak the entire Amazon. Darcy became the first woman to do it. Now, the same number of people have walked on the moon as have descended the Amazon from source to sea.

Ep. 373: Climbing in North Korea - Woolly Mammoths - Nepal & Siberia - George Kourounis

May 10, 2018 59:06

Description:

One of our favorite recurring guests, George Kourounis, is back on the show today. George recently returned from Nepal where he visited Everest Base Camp in the Himalayas to film a TV show. They decided to try visiting the base camp with no acclimatization. So they took a helicopter up with no time to adjust. George immediately experienced the effects of hypoxia during this trip. George was also fortunate enough to meet Kancha Sherpa on this helicopter ride. Kancha Sherpa is the last surviving member of Sir Edmond Hillary's 1953 expedition to be the first people to reach the summit of Everest.

On our last show with George, he was preparing to head to North Korea for a rare opportunity to mountain trek, climb and camp. He was approved by the government and was able to travel there in May of 2017. He fills us in on what it was like to be a western-world guest in this secretive country during tumultuous political times. His experience is an interesting one that most of us never get to hear much less experience. Listen in to hear about what the mountains and surroundings are like over there.

George tells about his continued trips to volcanoes including 11,384 ft Mt Nyiragongo which is an active volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He explains that the lake nearby, Lake Kivu,  which is susceptible to exploding due to the vast amounts of dissolved carbon dioxide at the bottom. The volcano holds the world's largest boiling lake of lava.

He traveled down the Road of Bones to visit a village in the middle of Siberia, Oymyakon, which is known as the coldest place on earth. He tells us a story about visiting a preserved woolly mammoth frozen in the permafrost and when no one was looking, George snapped off a little mammoth to have a taste. Listen in to hear what that experience was like for him.

Then we discussed the difficulty of ice climbing on icebergs to place satellite tracking devices on them for tracking the path of the icebergs as they float through the ocean. 

It's never a dull hour when our friend George Kourounis joins us on the show.

Ep. 351: How Mountaineering Can Help Heal - Jane Parnell

Feb 22, 2018 54:29

Description:

Jane Parnell has been hiking and climbing the Rocky Mountains since the 1970's when she discovered how the mountains could heal her traumatic wounds. After being raped when she was twenty-one and with few people believing her claim, she met a mountaineer who introduced her to mountaineering. They would eventually be married. Jane's new passion helped her cope with the trauma of the rape and other family issues that weighed heavily on her throughout life. By the time she was thirty, she had become the first woman to climb the 100 highest peaks of Colorado. Jane continued her quest for the summit by turning the goal of sumitting the 100 highest peaks into conquering the 200 highest and ultimately setting her sights on the 300 highest and nearly reached that goal. Jane is on the show today to share with us the ways in which adventure sports,  and more specifically mountaineering,  can help us find and maintain some sanity in our crazy world. Check out her new book: "Off Trail: Finding My Way Home in the Colorado Rockies"

 

Jane will be at her book signing at the Tattered Cover in Denver, CO this Saturday Feb. 24, 2018 @ 2 pm. More info here:  http://www.tatteredcover.com/new-event-calendar#event-id-138172

Ep. 349: Discovering Adventure Sports in Your Forties - Scott Newman

Feb 15, 2018 56:17

Description:

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 do eventually find ourselves living and dreaming as adventurers. Scott Newman spends time with Curt re-living his discovery and new passion for hiking and backpacking on today's show. Can you relate to Scott's story? if so, join our Facebook group and tell us about it. We would love to hear your story!

Ep. 303: Bikepacking the Oregon Outback Trail - Graham Hiemstra

Sep 7, 2017 01:00:44

Description:

Graham Hiemstra is on the show today to fill us in on bikepacking the Oregon Outback Trail.

From www.oregonbikepacking.com "We think this is hands-down the best bikepacking route in Oregon.  Starting in Klamath Falls near the California border, you get to traverse the entire length of the state on lightly traveled roads including a slice of route’s namesake area – the Oregon Outback – a dusty, remote portion of the state populated primarily by coyotes and rattlesnakes. Expect desolation, extremely limited water and services, and some of the most beautiful riding anywhere.  But don’t expect it to be easy; this is one of our most difficult, committing routes. Highlights include the OC&E Woods Line State Trail, 30 oz. steaks at the Cowboy Dinner Tree, Fort Rock, the Crooked River, the Ochoco Mountains, and amazing views of the Deschutes and Columbia Rivers."

Ep. 292: The First Woman to Ride Around the World on a Motorcycle - Elspeth Beard

Jul 31, 2017 01:01:10

Description:

In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6. Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead. When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today. Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

Ep. 289: Long Distance Kitesurfing - Bowen Dwelle

Jul 20, 2017 01:21:34

Description:

Here's one we haven't covered yet. Bowen Dwelle joins the ASP to talk about Long Distance Exploratory Kitesurfing, Foil Boarding, Flow, the long distance experience, athletic journeys, the nature of (what is) adventure, athletics and intuition, and the new normal in adventure sports.

Bowen's Adventure Portfolio:

I am a lifelong outdoors sports enthusiast (skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, open water swimming, trail running, MTB, kitesurfing, paragliding) and have in the last ten years become a passionate and now 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 my specialty: long distance. 

We have developed techniques to allow truly long distance travel – 100+ miles in a day and 1000+ miles in a single journey -- by kite, and we have done several trips on the coast of Brazil and elsewhere using these techniques. 

I was fortunate enough to be one of the principal athletes in a film production that we just finished about the long distance experience, exploring the northern coast of Brazil by kite. We shot last summer (2016) and just finished editing and it's now screening on Canal OFF in Brazil. In the meantime I was in the Philippines in March 2017 shooting another similar expedition and will be back in Brazil in September 2017 shooting an entire series of long distance exploratory kiting, from Atins to the mouth of the Amazon and up the river to Santarem!
