If you know what the Darien Gap is, you know that most travelers opt to go around it by boat or over it by plane. Today’s guest, JD Smith, decided to go through the 99 mile long jungle by motorcycle instead. Needless to say, this is not your ordinary two-wheeled adventure.

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 competing in the world half Ironman, running (and winning second 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.

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.

Did you know that bears don't actually growl as Hollywood has you believe? Did you also know that a dog on a leash is a great bear deterrent, but a dog off its leash is a great way to have yourself a bear encounter? 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.

In October 2016 Anna McNuff saddled up on a bike called Bernard and set off as part of a two-woman team on a mission to explore some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the Southern Andes.

Side by side, she and her friend Faye Shepherd spent 184 days pedaling their way 5,500 miles through Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. From the bustling city of La Paz, all the way down to Ushuaia – the last sizeable chunk of land before you reach Antarctica. Far from taking the shortest, most direct route, they sought the most mountainous course possible. By the time they returned to the UK in spring 2017 they had ascended over 100,000 metres  – equivalent to 11 times the height of Everest – on their bicycles.
