Jane Parnell has been hiking and climbing the Rocky Mountains since the 1970's when she discovered how the mountains could heal her traumatic wounds. After being raped when she was twenty-one and with few people believing her claim, she met a mountaineer who introduced her to mountaineering. They would eventually be married. Jane's new passion helped her cope with the trauma of the rape and other family issues that weighed heavily on her throughout life. By the time she was thirty, she had become the first woman to climb the 100 highest peaks of Colorado. Jane continued her quest for the summit by turning the goal of sumitting the 100 highest peaks into conquering the 200 highest and ultimately setting her sights on the 300 highest and nearly reached that goal. Jane is on the show today to share with us the ways in which adventure sports,  and more specifically mountaineering,  can help us find and maintain some sanity in our crazy world. Check out her new book: "Off Trail: Finding My Way Home in the Colorado Rockies"

 

Jane will be at her book signing at the Tattered Cover in Denver, CO this Saturday Feb. 24, 2018 @ 2 pm. More info here:  http://www.tatteredcover.com/new-event-calendar#event-id-138172

Some of are introduced to adventure sports shortly after figuring out how to walk. Some of us found ourselves eyeballs deep in our adventure passions as teenagers and, for others, it takes until their forties or later to discover the pure enjoyment we have all come to know and love no matter what age we were when it happened. And that is a great thing. It's not crucial that we all see the light so early in life. What is important is that we do eventually find ourselves living and dreaming as adventurers. Scott Newman spends time with Curt re-living his discovery and new passion for hiking and backpacking on today's show. Can you relate to Scott's story? if so, join our Facebook group and tell us about it. We would love to hear your story!

Curt surprises Travis with a spontaneous phone call and discussion about the fear of trying new adventure sports. This oddball episode is outside of our normal realm but will hopefully provide you with some smiles and laughs as well as some food for thought. As if putting Travis on the spot by cold calling him to have this discussion wasn't enough, Curt decides to toss Travis directly under the bus by slipping in a very embarrassing little ditty Travis recorded while testing a new microphone back in the fledgling days of the Adventure Sports Podcast. Enjoy a laugh on my behalf!

Holiday Flashback - Brian Brown, along with his wife and one of his daughters, flew out of northern California in their personal plane, a Cessna 172, with plans to visit their oldest daughter in Mountain Home, ID. The trip was going well until weather started filling in the skies directly in their path. After diverting to an abandoned airfield to wait out the storm for a while, they saw what they thought was their chance to continue on. It didn't take long before their plans were drastically changed. The plane was engulfed in low-level clouds making it impossible for safe visual flight. In attempt to find a solution, the plane with the three family members aboard, slammed into the side of a mountain in Idaho. The book is: "Rescued: One Family's Miraculous Story of Survival"
