Growing up, Matt was an unlikely candidate to become a professional climber.  Mostly because the southern beaches of Florida were his home. However, early on he showed promising climbing ability and began competing all over the country and world.

After moving out to Colorado he began doing things very few climbers were doing, garnering the attention of The North Face. He signed with them and did climbs and expeditions all over the world. Noticing the lack of quality coffee on the market for backcountry sports, Matt’s mind began working.

When back home in Colorado he would experiment with instant coffee combinations until he was satisfied. After talking his sister and some friends into going in with him, they started Alpine Start, the premier instant coffee for backpackers, climbers, and anyone in the adventure sports world.

Today we’re talking to Matt about his story and how he balancing life on the rock and life in the business world.

Erik is an experienced peak-bagger, long-distance hiker, author (of seven books), and has immense amounts of knowledge about off-trail travel and wilderness adventuring, especially in the northeast of America. He has climbed over 200 remote peaks in the Adirondacks during winter, with many of them not having a trail to the summit. He’s an expert in toponym research (why things are named what they are) and sustainable trail design.

All this knowledge and skill has led him to achieve what many outdoor enthusiasts can only dream, create his own thru-hiking route; the Trans Adirondack, a 235-mile backpacking route in the Adirondack mountains that includes off-trail navigation and bushwacking. It’s broken down like this, 182 miles of trails (76%), 50 miles of roads (21%), and 8 miles of trackless woods (3%) to get from one end of the Adirondack Park to the other.

His knowledge is vast, his demeanor unassuming, and his attitude superb. I hope you’re as inspired as I am after this conversation with a truly humble legend of trail-travel and development.

Long before her son was doing some of the most incredible climbing in the world and her daughter was solo bike touring around the west, Dierdre was living a life full of adventure. From moving to different countries and starting orchestras from scratch to raising two kids by herself and working much more than fulltime, Dierdre enjoyed taking on out-of-the-box challenges and seeing what she’s made of.

Never to be one to think of age as a limitation, Dierdre started running at the age of 55 and became climbing at 58.  Within a few years, she was running marathons and by 66 she became the oldest woman to climb El Capitan, the same rock that her son, Alex, would free solo. It’s evident in both her children that they were raised by someone with lots of room to live outside the box.

We hope you enjoy this conversation.

Born and raised in Ireland, Gavan Hennigan turned a life of drug and alcohol addiction into a wonderful life of adventure. Once he managed to toss his bad habits aside, Gavan learned of a whole new world involving Ultrarunning, Snowboarding, Mountaineering, Splitboarding and even found himself employed as a commercial Deep Sea Diver working on offshore oil rigs.

As if living 700 ft below the surface of the ocean isn't adventurous enough, Gavan takes his breaks from his day job to explore some of the highest peaks in the world as well as the most brutal environments on our planet.


He has competed in some of the longest, toughest ultramarathons, like the Likeys 6633 Ultra 350 and the Yukon Arctic Ultra 300. He has climbed and snowboarded peaks in Svalbard, Antarctic, BC as well as Alaska and all seven continents.

With trails becoming more overcrowded by the year, folks seeking isolation will need to do one of two things; find more “wild” trails and locations or find a new adventure sport altogether.  Brett, an experienced instructor, is joining us today to tell us why sea kayaking is such a wonderful experience and why you should consider it for your next adventure sport obsession. He has us convinced!

Most motorcycle adventures are completed with a little trouble, but all-in-all they come off without a hitch. Glen Heggstad decided he would like to try the ever-popular trip to Tierra Del Fuego, the southernmost tip of South America. Things went well for Glen for the first month. After that, the trip took a very dramatic turn. So much so that National Geographic decided to produce a documentary about it. Listen in to find out what happened!

Kristin Knight Pace is one tough person. Not many people would go to Alaska during the winter, completely alone, to take care of a team of sled dogs to get over a recent divorce. However, that's exactly what she did. That toughness has also led her to become one of only 29 women to complete both the Iditarod and the Yukon Question 1000-mile sled dog races. 

Kristin is now remarried and has started a new journey, motherhood. She also works as a wilderness planner for Denali National Park and has recently written a book about her experiences, This Much Country. It can be found following the link below or pretty much anywhere else you buy books. 

We hope you enjoy listening to this life outside the box!

The Tour Divide is over 2700 miles of self-supported bicycle race along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route stretching between Banff, Alberta, Canada and the US-Mexico border in Antelope Wells, New Mexico. The route was created in 1997 by the Adventure Cycling Association. For 19 years now, bike packers have tackled this route with top riders finishing in just over two weeks while most don’t make it at all. Jim Goodyear is on the show today to fill us in on the experience and mental test that the Tour Divide provides. It's an epic adventure and you should definitely try it!

Today’s Life Outside the Box episode features someone who’s balancing the delicate act of being an epic adventurer and a normal family man. Sean Green uses his precious time off work to climb and bike down the Munros of Scotland, a list of 282 mountain peaks that are scattered across the country.

Currently, Sean is approaching the halfway point of the project and it has been nothing short of a true adventure thus far. From terrible weather, broken vehicles, and totally decimated itineraries, there’s something all of us can learn from Sean, you don’t have to be a fulltime adventure athlete to do incredible things.

We hope you enjoy this down to earth conversation and we hope you get out there and plan something yourself.

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!
