Despite studying outdoor leadership at university and filling his summers with adventure travel, Oli found himself falling into an incredibly boring job as a kitchen salesman. After getting to the point where he couldn’t take it anymore, in the middle of a major house remodel, and months away from getting married, Olie decided to undertake a solo winter journey from Hong Kong to Istanbul along the mountainous spine of Asia. During that adventure, he climbed 14 mountains in the 11 countries he visited and the journey became the basis of his first book, ‘The Trail of the Mountain Folk’.

Since then, he has lead groups on overseas adventures to destinations including Iraq, Somalia, DRC, Sudan, and Turkmenistan. Overall, he’s taken clients to 13 countries in total and 60 countries he’s traveled to personally.

With a keen sense of balance, he has become a specialist in taking in doing personal trips and taking paying clients to hostile environments and situations, like being detained for five days in Uzbekistan, navigating through minefields in Iraq and Laos, avoiding car-bombings in Beirut, being caught in a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, dodging avalanches and frostbite, getting stuck in a militia-run town in the DRC, facing down the barrel of a gun, and being stranded alone without water in a remote desert valley.

There have been so many occasions where he has had to find the resilience to continue, and more latterly, to have good leadership to keep his groups safe.

Could you do this for a living?

Sometimes our adventure is about so much more than our desire to fulfill our dreams. For Tom Knox's parents, driving the length of the US west coast was always something they wanted to do. However, due to cancer and Alzheimer's, that dream remained unfulfilled when they died. In an effort to carry on the adventurous spirit of his parents, Tom decided he would bike the route in remembrance of them and in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's. Tom is a normal guy, taking precious PTO in order to make this adventure happen. We caught up with him a few weeks before he left.

With any adventure, finances have to be part of the planning. That planning can begin months or years before the adventure even begins. Some folks decide to put it all on a credit card. Others knock on the door of hundreds of potential sponsors to pay for their trips while others just decide to suffer immensely on the adventure because of lack of funds (been there, done that). 

Doesn't it make more sense to build a frugal and thoughtful lifestyle that allows adventures to be more realistic, more often? Chris Mamula joins us today to talk about some very easy and key steps that anyone can do to help make adventures more possible in their lives.

Chris is an avid adventurer and has achieved financial independence and decided to retire from physical therapy at age 41, giving him years of possible adventures for him and his family.

Have you ever wondered what goes into a hiking guidebook? Well, it was a lot more time, energy, and hiking than I thought. The necessary experience of hiking hundreds of miles in an area in order to know what you’re talking about is an adventure in itself. That doesn’t even include the writing part! I hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at how and why someone, or two brothers, would spend 10 years of weekends on a single project.

Travis said he'll never forget that feeling of sitting in the car with his wife, Fiona, after the pediatricians diagnosed their son, Patch, with autism at 21-months-old. They thought their life of adventuring around the world was over. However, in time, the family has learned to do some pretty epic stuff, like ride a bicycle 5,600 km across the US. Travis contributes their ability to continue adventures to their relentless pursuit of putting every single situation into a positive light.

Back in early March, we caught up with Jeremiah about his concerns, hopes, and excitement going into an attempt at thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. Today, we get to hear from Jeremiah from the halfway point! Over 1,000 miles into the hike and it has already felt like a lifetime of adventure and experiences. Congrats, Jeremiah, and we're stoked to talk with you after hitting the finish line!

Alastair Humphreys is an adventurer, author, and motivational speaker. His first big adventure was completing a four-year bicycle journey around the world that consisted of 46,000 miles cycling and changed his life forever. After the trip, he popularized the idea of microadventures - short, local, accessible adventures for the average person.  This idea helped him achieve becoming a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2012. 

Alastair is a huge inspiration of mine and I hope you enjoy our conversation about life, parenting, and the delicate balance between normal life and pursuing adventure.

As if climbing a typical 14,000 ft mountain isn't enough of an accomplishment, Junaid and his buddy, Luke, successfully summited every one of the 58 Colorado 14ers in a single continuous hike. The journey was about 1,300 miles with a total elevation gain close to 300,000 feet. They hiked desolate Forst Service roads, class 5 traverses, many sections of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trail, as well as cross-country travel. It's an epic adventure to say the least!

Imagine taking the adventure sport you love and being among the first to teach that sport in a part of the world that hasn't been possible until recently. That’s exactly what adventurer Milosz Pierwola and veteran Ryan Shuler are accomplishing in Iraq. Their plan is to build the first climbing school in Iraq in the city of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdish Mountains. They’re fundraising to gather professional climbing equipment as well as build a climbing wall with local aspiring climbers, who have self-learned to climb solely from videos found on the internet. I hope you enjoy the story behind this epic project!

Also, if you can, get involved!

From the project’s website:

Our project will establish the first climbing school in the country of Iraq, creating gateways where a culture once saw barriers, through their indomitable mountains. Classes will focus on rock climbing and mountaineering skills that will enable expeditions to discover the as of yet unclimbed local peaks. The program will take place in a successful community center established in 2007 that services over 1,500 children and adults. It will be headed by a group of Iraqi mountaineers who have overcome great adversity, such as forging their own gear, to learn how to climb. The facility is equipped with classrooms, theater/cinema, internet, and most importantly, 5 hectares/12 acres of land upon which we will construct a 9 m/30 ft tall climbing wall. In addition to the wall, we will deliver a complete assortment of climbing equipment and publish the first native language mountaineering instructional book, Basic Principles of Mountaineering, translated from French.”

Andy is what I call a serial adventurer. It’s more of a lifestyle than it is one particular trip that creates his “story”. His ability to make the world his playground is envious, but it’s his charming and genuine demeanor that helps you understand his thirst for adventure in new places is who he is and where he’s happiest. Andy is one of those guys that helps us all see that the world is not as bad as some folks would want us to believe. Andy has the traveling chops to prove it as he’s visited over 60 countries and has lived and worked all over the world.

Recently he biked across the US to raise awareness for brain cancer, the condition that took his father not long ago. That’s going to be a large part of the subject of our interview. There are incredible stories of generosity, hope, and grit. Keep shining on, Andy. I know your dad is proud!

Originally Published December 1, 2016

From the book summary:

When a family outing in a private plane takes a tragic turn, a Memorial Day trip becomes an unforgettable 15 hours of danger, rescue efforts, and miracles.

On a clear Saturday morning, professional fire captain and private pilot Brian Brown, his wife, and younger daughter headed out in their Cessna Sky Hawk for a weekend with their elder daughter. But unexpected severe conditions send the craft into the treacherous War Eagle Idaho mountainside…a remote place that would make communication and rescue nearly impossible―if they survived.

This captivating story, featured on The Today Show, is about a family in crisis, emergency plans for survival, and the incredible orchestration of local, state, and national rescue workers who brave unpredictable obstacles to accomplish the unimaginable.

An intriguing account of faith and courage reminds readers that one's darkest hour can become the landscape for miracles to unfold.

Happy late Father’s Day everyone!

"Eyad Yehyawi has been bowhunting for nearly thirty years, traveling across the United States, Canada, and Africa. A naturalist long before he was a bowhunter, Eyad’s passion for the outdoors dates as far back as he can remember. While majoring in biology at Quincy University, he worked in conservation and wildlife management before deciding to pursue interests in health care. Many of these stories and photos have appeared in magazines including Bow & Arrow Hunting, Bowhunter, Bowhunt America, and Outdoor Life. Eyad currently lives in Iowa with his wife and children, where he practices optometry."

It’s not easy leaving something secure to go after something so uncertain. However, that’s one of the necessary ingredients to have a true adventure. Tony Smith knew that when there was sawdust left in his hair during a work meeting after working on his passion for crafting over a lunch break, it was time to take a leap. He left a stable career to jump full-time into handcrafted wooden paddle boards but gave himself the deadline to try it for a year.  With a young family and no real certainty it would work out, the journey of building Jarvis Boards was truly an adventure of a lifetime. Today, 5 years into the adventure, Jarvis Boards is still going strong and getting more and more publicity. Today, we talk to Tony to get a feel for what it was really like to make the leap, the reality of risk when doing what you love for a living, and the highs and lows of growing upon a new and solid foundation.

Enjoy!

Five years ago Luisa and Graeme Bell, along with their kids, Keelan and Jessica, set out to explore the African continent via Overland vehicle. After that epic journey, it only took a few days of being home in South Africa to realize that they needed to continue their adventure.

So they put their existing lives aside, purchased a 2009 Land Rover Defender 130, and outfitted it for full-time living. Then the roaming began.

Their travels have taken them around the African continent nearly twice, up through South and Central America, and winding them through the United States, Canada, and Alaska.

We've caught up with them while they are house sitting in Baja Mexico. Listen in to hear how they do it and what experiences they've had so far!

Need something wild to do in the winter? You can hike (and skateboard some of) the entire 1,300 miles of endless pine forests, sandy beaches, and gator-infested swamps of the Florida Trail. An adventure that doesn't see very many participants compared to some of the other big trails in the US. 

Today we talk to Alex Fogt who took it on last winter and says it's up there with anything else he's ever done! It's a unique experience, to say the least, and will show you the real Florida far from Disney World and condo-covered beaches.

A true adventure usually includes a few changes in the original plan. Some good and some bad. The same goes for the adventure of starting a business or introducing a product in the outdoor industry.

When a crazy idea of having argon inflated jackets to keep warm was born, Cory Tholl was totally intrigued by the idea. So much so, he joined the small team and they got to work bringing the outdoor world one of the strangest twists on the tried and true jacket.

The name of the whole venture became Klymit, and as they pursued this adventure of an idea it became clear that something needed to change. Using the technology they'd already built, they decided to turn their attention to other inflatable products to make life outdoors a lot easier. 

Today, Klymit makes a number of outdoor products but are especially known for their affordable, lightweight, and comfortable sleeping pads.

If you have an idea you want to start pursuing, I hope Cory's story helps you learn a thing or two about being flexible in the world of adventure.

Bowen is a lifelong outdoors sports enthusiast (skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, open water swimming, trail running, MTB, kitesurfing, paragliding) and has in the last ten years become semi-professional kitesurfer. While most people think of kitesurfing for the freestyle (tricks) and perhaps also for wave riding, there are other disciplines that are gaining traction and progressing the sport: course racing, foil board kiting and his specialty: long distance. He has learned techniques to allow truly long-distance travel – 100+ miles in a day and 1000+ miles in a single journey by kite!

When Jessica Mills, aka “Dixie”, quit her engineering job and began her first thru-hiking adventure of the Appalachian Trail, she never imagined her YouTube channel would grow into what it has become. Through her easy-going demeanor, matter of fact advice, and overall charming attitude, she has become one of the go-to sources of advice, inspiration,  and how-to channels to learn about all things backpacking. I hope you enjoy this look behind the scenes of the Homemade Wanderlust channel and the triple-crowner who hosts it.

Justin Wilson is a volunteer scout leader for Troop 1532, an all-refugee Boy Scout Troop in Aurora, CO. In this interview, we talk about how the unique troop was formed, how it serves refugee boys, and what they strive to teach each Scout. From mitigating different backgrounds to cultural preferences, and even food, every aspect of operating this troop is so different than a typical Boy Scout troop, yet provides the most fascinating stories of outdoor adventure.

We hope you enjoy and if you’d like to learn more about Justin and the troop, or you believe you can fill any of their needs, please get in touch.

A few years back, Yannick Chaigneau and Shirley Lam set out on an epic adventure they call the transcontinental triathlon. They started in Alaska and kayaked the inside passage down to Washington. After that, they thru-hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail down to Mexico. Once off the trail, they hopped on their bikes to complete the journey of a lifetime by biking their way down through Central and South America to Ushuaia. They even did some mountaineering to keep from being bored on the bikes. This is one epic adventure!

Last summer, Benjamin Jordan realized his lifelong dream of flying his paraglider along the entire length of Canada's southern Rocky Mountains.

From Roosville, Montana to Prince George, BC, the 37-year old, Nelson-based filmmaker flew his wind-powered aircraft across some of BC's and Alberta's most rugged wilderness while having to make strategic landings atop mountains to avoid electrical storms or touching down within the forbidden boundaries of Banff National Park.

Despite the many challenges he encountered along the way, none compared to the psychological struggle of sitting alone in the alpine for weeks at a time, waiting for poor weather or wildfire smoke to clear so that he could fly on. Able to carry no more than 12-days of food, Jordan would occasionally land in populated areas to refuel before heading back up into the nearest summit to re-launch.

Of the entire expedition, Jordan was most nervous, and excited, about soaring over the glaciers and alpine lakes of Jasper National Park, North America's only National Park to allow Paraglider travel. Though its remoteness and mystery have caused pilots to stay away, Jordan dedicated a complete year to studying Jasper's unique topography with the ambitious dream of becoming the first person to fly across her entirety.

Despite extended waits between flights, his fortune continued for 50 consecutive days until the unprecedented levels wildfire smoke of late August left Jordan with no choice but to complete his 1200 km, un-supported journey on foot. During a 4-day (214 km) walk from McBride to Prince George, Jordan had time to reflect on his unique accomplishment while stepping into the record books for the Longest Vol-Biv (Fly-Camp) Expedition in America.

A film depicting the entire journey will be released in the Spring of this year at theendlesschain.com
