Ep. 349: Discovering Adventure Sports in Your Forties - Scott Newman


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!

Ep. 345: Fear in Adventure - Are You Afraid to Sing in Public? - Two Fools


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!
