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.

When most people go to Disney World they're not really inspired to go and start a trekking company halfway around the actual world. As you'll learn from this episode, Mark is not most people. In fact, that trip to Disney coupled with a Lyft ride was enough for him and his wife, Holly, to totally transform their lives to pursue a dream that seemed impossible, especially to the folks around them in rural Tennessee. I hope you're as inspired as I am after hearing about this amazing adventure that should prove to us that anything is possible from anywhere, you just have to start moving.

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.

Grace McDonald found herself working incredibly long hours as an attorney. However, her desire to climb the world's greatest mountains got the best of her. She traded in her security and career for a pair of crampons and hit the ground running (well trekking really). She hasn't looked back since. We caught up with her to see if she's found what she's looking for.

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.

So is it difficult to build an outdoor business and brand from nothing in one of the meccas of the outdoor industry? You guessed it. It might take you investing your entire life savings or living in a van for months on end or even giving up almost everything (including your sanity) to realize your dream.  Like I've always said, chasing your dreams can be a nightmare. We hope you enjoy this open and honest discussion with Feral Mountain Co. founder, Jimmy Funkhouser. After listening about the highs and lows of building something from nothing, we hope you get out there and try something incredibly difficult yourself.

Joe Kurmaskie, better known as The Metal Cowboy, is an award-winning author of eight non-fiction memoirs of his many travels and adventures. His books, as well as performances, are packed with humor, history, and philosophy of what it truly means to be a human on this crazy Earth. The one thing in Joe's stories that never changes is the fact that he sees, hears, and feels the details of his human experience through the seat of his trusty metal steed, the bicycle. Take it from us, reading his books is one heck of an unforgettable ride.

As a neophyte horsewoman with a minimal command of the Spanish language, Nancy rode off across Patagonia, alone, on horseback. Over the next decade and three thousand miles of rugged horse trail, Patagonia’s wild country and the hardy pioneers who settled there took her in and changed her. The book "Riding Into the Heart of Patagonia" is the story of that journey. It is also the story of Patagonia, a spectacular wilderness and rich, self-sufficient culture on the brink of rapid change. Her book is now available.  Link below.

Josh is a dad, husband, and entrepreneur who lives in Michigan. Yet he still takes the time to get out there and crush some fastest-known-times in very mountainous places.  This past summer he ran and hiked his way up 10 Colorado 14ers in 23 hours and 33 minutes, breaking the record for the most 14,000-foot summits in a day.  

However, it wasn't his first attempt at the record.  Listen to today's episode to find out what Josh has to say about facing failure, doing what you love, and not backing down.

So many of us deal with mental health issues but we can feel isolated in our struggle.  It's hard to talk about.  However, it's no secret that speaking to someone about it and getting outside can help tremendously. In this episode, Georgina Jackson opens up about her struggle with bipolar disorder and how climbing helps her figuratively and literally reach new heights. If mental health is something you may be struggling with, please seek help.  There's no shame in that!  MOST people will deal with it at some point in their lives.

I hope you enjoy this open and honest discussion and hope it inspires you to continue adventuring wherever you are.

Amie spent time recovering and learning to read, walk and talk again. After a successful recovery, she conquered those same rapids proving she had what it took to continue her love for kayaking.

Allen Kenneth Schaidle lives in Dubai, but he spends his leisure time researching boulders on America’s grand prairie. His bookcase has an entire shelf dedicated to his collection of Midwest climbing guidebooks. The first guidebook he purchased was Sandstone Warrior: Bouldering Southern Illinois by Matt Bliss. Today, you’ll find it stained, marked with personal notes, and dog-eared from years of trips to some of the world’s best sandstone boulders. 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.

Listen in as Kevin describes what it was that intrigued him about this often misunderstood land.
