If you've ever done a workout in the wilderness, you know how awesome of an experience it can be. The smells, the sights, the feeling in the air once you get your heart rate going. It beats the heck out of any gym, any day. That was the inspiration behind monkii's co-founder, Dan Vinson. How can you get an epic workout from anywhere, especially in the wild? Well, Dan and his friend came up with monkii, the simple to use, easy to set up, and awesome workout tool that can go with you to the most remote places on earth.

In today's story, we hear about Dan's background, where the idea for monkii bars came from, his crazy PR stunts and very successful Kickstarter campaigns. It's an inspiring tale of taking what's never been done and doing it wildly. 

Live wild or die, my friends.

Laura doesn’t particularly like rowing, which sounds crazy after you realize she rowed a boat 3,000 miles across the Atlantic with a team of three other women in just 43 days 2 hours and 20 minutes. On top of that, they managed to do this by rowing in 2-hour shifts, 24-hours a day, every single day. It’s not rowing that Luara loves, but a pure and unfiltered adventure and the push of the human spirit to experience it.

We hope you enjoy this wonderful conversation around adventure and the unexpected joys and struggles when you put yourself out there.

In 2018, Heather Anderson became the first woman to hike all three of the "Triple Crown" thru-hikes; Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails in a single calendar year. The 7,900-mile journey took 251 days to complete and led her to become a 2019 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. 

She also holds the overall record for self-supported fastest known time on the Pacific Crest Trail (60 days) and the women's self-supported FKT on the Appalachian Trail (54 days).

Her book, Thirst: 2600 Miles to Home came out earlier this month, which recounts her story of leaving her unsatisfying job, marriage, and life after her first thru-hike in order to return back to the trail and begin hiking again.

Adventure (ad·ven·ture): an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.
 
That basically sums up life itself. The most unexpected, seemingly unfair, and hazardous things happen to us at every turn. We want adventure, but don't always love when it shows up. A life-altering injury is, by the definition above, an adventure. Well, it's not always exciting, but you get the picture. 
 
To go from a collapsed spine at the age of 19 to being on a sponsored climbing expedition to the Ivory Coast is not an overnight journey, nor is it pleasant, but it is adventure. Astrid's story is one of hope, patience and sheer grit to rise from what many would call a crippling situation (literally) to seeing the beauty in what happens to all of us at some point and accepting it as what life is all about. 
 
Adventure doesn't always lead us down a peaceful path but teaches us to find peace no matter what path we're on.

Thinking about changing life up dramatically for you and your family? Today’s episode is with one of the former hosts of the Adventure Sports Podcast, Travis Parson, with his wife Jen who packed up their kids and dogs and set out for a year-long fulltime RVing adventure (a goal that ultimately led Travis to have to stop hosting the show!).

Today’s episode is their 6-month update and what an adventure it has been so far! Life on the road truly is one day at a time because each day feels like it has the same amount of experiences as an entire month back in normal life. We hope you’re inspired after this!

In his 28-year career as a physics teacher in McAllen, TX, Curt has done two separate zero gravity experiments totaling 30 minutes of floating in air. The first time was with NASA scientists testing the software to control Robonaut in a zero-G environment. The second was sponsored by Northrup Grumman, a defense contractor, to spark interest in science in students. As far as adventure goes, it doesn't get any more unique than this!

Andrew is essentially a "professional backpacker" who is best known for his long-distance backpacking trips, many of which are firsts.

For instance, his 6,875-mile Great Western Loop, his 7,778-mile Sea-to-Sea Rou, e and his 4,679-mile "loop" of Alaska on foot, raft, and ski. He also has completed a plethora of shorter adventurers that would be on anyone's bucket list.

He's been considered the John Muir and Henry David Thoreau of Generation Y, was Backpacker Magazine Person of the Year, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, among other awards.  

However, today's episode is not specifically about those adventures, but about what life has been like after those achievements. How has he built a sustainable career from backpacking? What future adventures is he planning?  Listen in to find out.

Erika Bergman is a submarine pilot, engineer, and a National Geographic Explorer. We talked with her back in episode 427 about taking Sir Richard Branson and Fabien Cousteau (grandson of famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau) on a submarine adventure into the depth of Belize's Great Blue Hole.

The mission was successfully completed back in December and we're having her recount the adventure today!

In 2013 she received a National Geographic Explorers grant for her "Classrooms Under the Sea" expedition which live-streamed submarine expeditions to classrooms. She's a superb storyteller with many interesting tales and accomplishments to share!

She is also the Founder of GEECs - Global Engineering & Exploration Counselors; providing a network of thrilling engineering camps to girls around the world.
