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. 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.

Richard Matthews is the type of guy that goes out does his own adventures off the beaten path. For instance, have you ever heard of the Slovenian Mountain Trail? Well, it’s a gorgeous and relatively unknown thru-hiking tail in eastern Europe. Richard just completed it. Listen on in his experience on the trail as well as his other crazy adventures, like his epic multi-year around-the-world road trip where he nearly ran out of food and money.

Revisited episode 268.

Dan Keeley is on a mission to raise awareness for depression and bipolar disorder by running 1,250 miles self-supported from Rome to London. It's called Rome to Home. In the summer of 2012 he experienced a full-blown manic episode – an episode which culminated with him believing he was ‘the chosen one’ and preaching from the central lane of a major motorway in Italy at rush hour. What followed was a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, time spent in psychiatric wards both in Italy and the UK, and the inevitable crippling depression which found him wanting to take my his own life. It has been 5 years now and Dan is doing awesome! He has a new lease on life and is using it to its fullest. Listen in to learn about Dan, his wild trip through this ordeal and what he is doing now to bring attention to this issue. There could not be a nicer guy to help us understand what people with depression are going through.

You're probably familiar with John's name and work but do you know about his journey from not being able to get a single company to publish his books to now being on countless coffee tables and walls around the world? Pursuing your dreams is not always a cakewalk. In fact, sometimes it's a downright nightmare but every once in a while, if you're lucky, your hard work lands in the hands of the Pope himself. Listen to the episode to learn what that's about! I hope you enjoy this honest conversation from one of America's most iconic photographers.

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.

After being unsatisfied with years in corporate America, Angie saw an opening to chase her ultimate dream, pro enduro mountain bike racing. As you'll hear, dreams sometimes come true in ways we don't expect. 

We discuss everything from what Enduro actually is (I really didn't know!), how tough it can be on finances to pursue a passion as well as the power of thoughts. I hope you enjoy our conversation!

After college, Joe Jimenez thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail.  When he returned home he found himself not really looking forward to the daily responsibilities of “normal life.”  This led Joe and his wife to some radical changes in their lives.  First, they decided to move into an RV.  Second, they budgeted to save as much money as possible.  Third, they have built a life that allows them the freedom to do the jobs they want as well as have the money they need to stay healthy, keep active, and ultimately chase adventure.  Now Joe is extremely passionate about sharing his ideas and life/travel-hacking principles.  I hope you learn something from today’s episode!

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.
