Tamela Rich began her love affair with the open road as a child, traveling with her family in the Vista Cruiser wagon from Ohio to California every other summer. She re-discovered America in the wake of a personal crisis, when she learned how to ride a motorcycle and took her first solo cross-country ride. Tamela learned to ride when she was 48 and three months after getting her motorcycle endorsement, took off on an 18-state 7500 mile solo trip from NC to Oregon and back. Since then she's traveled 47 states and 5 Canadian provinces on her motorcycle, mostly solo. Her award-winning book, "Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons from Friends Who Faced Cancer" was based on two years of cross-country motorcycling for cancer causes.

 

Tamela is also writing her new book "Fear: How to communicate with the Great Messenger of Life". If you have a great story about fear or questions about fear, feel free to contact Tamela through her website.

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. It didn't take but a few days back in the home in South Africa to realize that they needed to see more. Much more! 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!

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.

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.

Welcome to another ASP Stories bonus episode. We will be having authors read from their books featuring each chapter as a new episode. Think of these bonus episodes as an ongoing audiobook for free. So sit back, relax and enjoy a chapter from "None Such Like It" by Annie Dike. When Annie met her boyfriend Phillip, she learned he had the dream to purchase a sailboat and embark on journeys across the ocean while he was still young and had the ability to. Having never really considered sailing as a way of life, Annie was simply interested in Phillip's dream, and maybe more so in Phillip, to join him on his adventures. With a few years under their belts now as seasoned sailors, Annie has written three books, maintains her blog "Have Wind Will Travel" and produces a YouTube Channel chronicling their journey. You can also hear more from Annie of episodes 75 & 138 of the Adventure Sports Podcast.
