Ep. 481: Chasing Adventure with a New Heart, Literally - Mike Cohen

Image
Sometimes life hits you hard. Sometimes life hits you hard multiple time in a row. For Mike Cohen, he knows the feeling all too well. From surviving cancer to a heart transplant, not a day goes by that Mike isn't completely grateful for his ability to be alive. That's why this fall he'll be riding a bicycle across the country to meet the family of the man who he received his heart from. He knows that life is too precious, too fragile, and too interesting to not completely appreciate it and make the most of it.  Follow his journey here:Mrmikecohen.comInstagram @mrmikecohenSave 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel.

Image
Tristan Gooley is aNew York Times-bestselling author and an avid outdoorsman. He has led expeditions on five continents, climbed mountains all over the world and is the only living person to have both flown and sailed solo across the Atlantic.After realizing he doesn’t love talking about the gear and “stuff” of expeditions and adventures, he was curious as to why adventure called him so strongly to do these trips. Was it the thrill, the experience, or something else? He eventually realized he loved the act of “finding his way” through Nature using unconventional means, Nature itself. Thus began a lifelong passion for learning how Nature tells us where we are and how to get where we’re going.In his books, you’ll learn how to “read” Nature to find your way.  Things like locating north using puddles, finding your proximity to civilization using plants and using the behavior of animals to forecast the weather.

Ep. 478: Connecting Veterans with the Outdoors and Each Other - Todd Crevier

Image
When Todd got back from deployment, he had a mound of issues to work through. Divorce, drug addiction, and chronic pain all led to him really struggling with the transition to civilian life. Not to mention, not having many folks around him that understood what war was like.  A family vacation to Yellowstone National Park changed everything. Todd felt the wilderness had given him the confidence to act on his dream of connecting veterans and their families with each other by connecting them with the outdoors. Thus, New England Adventure was born.www.NewEnglandAdventures.org, www.facebook.com/NewEnglandAdventures Instagram: @new_england_adventures01 Save 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel.

Ep. 475: Business Owner, Ultrarunner, and Full-Time RVing with Family of 5 - Caleb Simpson

Image
When Caleb sold his previous business, Bearded Brothers, his wife, Kristy, had the crazy idea of being debt free and living in an RV full-time. Everyone around them thought they were nuts! Nearly 4 years into their journey, a lot of the people who called them crazy are now jealous of their freedom, lack of “stuff”, and ability to go where the wind takes them.  Caleb and Kristy are both small business owners who are able to operate their businesses out of the compact dwelling space. They have no end their adventure in sight but admit that RV living with three kids and running businesses absolutely has its unique challenges, but it’s a tradeoff compared with a normal route in life.Caleb is also an avid ultrarunner, taking the home and family to races all over the country. Instead of having to go to a stale hotel room after a long race, he can walk right into his house.  Pretty cool!https://www.instagram.com/freedomintow/https://www.instagram.com/hemp_daddys/?hl=enhttps://hempdaddys.com/
