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.

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, 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. 

Enjoy!

On today's episode, Curt talks with Travis Rabenberg about how he manages to spend much of his life traveling to new places, seeing amazing things and meeting interesting people. He spent 13 months traveling around the world by motorcycle and ultimately wound up in a Sportsmobile adventure van heading down through Central and South America surfing, kiteboarding and climbing along the way.

If you're looking for some inspiration to hop up and begin your own adventure, this episode should do it for you. Get more details about Travis' adventures by picking up his book:

From 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” 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” 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."

From engineeredforadventure.com/about

“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.”

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.

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. You can find it here:

From Jeltbelt.com:

"If not now, when?"

After surviving a near-death experience and months in the hospital, Jen Perry knew she wanted to do more with her life. In 2014, she founded Jelt as a social enterprise, with the purpose of creating a product that everyone would need, while promoting and encouraging social change.

Functional and socially impactful, Jelt elastic belts are made from recycled plastic bottles and are manufactured in a way that empowers women. Jelt belts are produced by women sewers living on rural Montana ranches and are also manufactured at the Women’s Prison in Billings, Montana, via the Montana Correctional Enterprise Program. This privileged program breaks the cycle of incarceration by interviewing, training and paying the women, giving them the skills and confidence needed to live a more productive life when released.

Since its inception, Jelt has become a Certified B Corporation, is active in 1% For The Planet, and has donated thousands of dollars to charities all over the world. Jelt truly uses business as a force for good.

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."

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!

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?

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.

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.

Have you ever wondered what goes into a hiking guidebook? Well, it was a lot more time, energy, and hiking than I thought. The necessary experience of hiking hundreds of miles in an area in order to know what you’re talking about is an adventure in itself. That doesn’t even include the writing part! I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at how and why someone, or two brothers, would spend 10 years of weekends on a single project.

Travis said he'll never forget that feeling of sitting in the car with his wife, Fiona, after the pediatricians diagnosed their son, Patch, with autism at 21-months-old. They thought their life of adventuring around the world was over. However, in time, the family has learned to do some pretty epic stuff, like ride a bicycle 5,600 km across the US. Travis contributes their ability to continue adventures to their relentless pursuit of putting every single situation into a positive light.

Back in early March, we caught up with Jeremiah about his concerns, hopes, and excitement going into an attempt at thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. Today, we get to hear from Jeremiah from the halfway point! Over 1,000 miles into the hike and it has already felt like a lifetime of adventure and experiences. Congrats, Jeremiah, and we're stoked to talk with you after hitting the finish line!

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.

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!

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.”
