Ep. 297: Thru Hiking the Ice Age National Scenic Trail - Luke Kloberdanz


Luke Kloberdanz visits with Curt about his thru hike of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.
But the Ice Age Trail is more than a path through the woods. It is a place for mental and physical rejuvenation, a place to unwind after a hard day and enjoy the landscape of Wisconsin. More than 1 million people use the Ice Age Trail each year to hike and snowshoe, to backpack, to disconnect and reconnect.
Behind the scenes, a vibrant community of volunteers across the state work to build and maintain the Trail, making it one of the country’s best hiking experiences.

Ep. 292: The First Woman to Ride Around the World on a Motorcycle - Elspeth Beard


In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6. Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead. When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today. Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

Ep. 289: Long Distance Kitesurfing - Bowen Dwelle


Here's one we haven't covered yet. Bowen Dwelle joins the ASP to talk about Long Distance Exploratory Kitesurfing, Foil Boarding, Flow, the long distance experience, athletic journeys, the nature of (what is) adventure, athletics and intuition, and the new normal in adventure sports.
Bowen's Adventure Portfolio:
I am a lifelong outdoors sports enthusiast (skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, open water swimming, trail running, MTB, kitesurfing, paragliding) and have in the last ten years become a passionate and now 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 my specialty: long distance.
We have developed techniques to allow truly long distance travel – 100+ miles in a day and 1000+ miles in a single journey -- by kite, and we have done several trips on the coast of Brazil and elsewhere using these techniques.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the principal athletes in a film production that we just finished about the long distance experience, exploring the northern coast of Brazil by kite. We shot last summer (2016) and just finished editing and it's now screening on Canal OFF in Brazil. In the meantime I was in the Philippines in March 2017 shooting another similar expedition and will be back in Brazil in September 2017 shooting an entire series of long distance exploratory kiting, from Atins to the mouth of the Amazon and up the river to Santarem!
