Ep. 484: Wilderness Coaching and Living Boldly - Sara Schulting-Kranz

Image
Not everyone chooses to live a life outside the box. Sometimes, it chooses you.Five years ago, Schulting-Kranz was living her life very much within the box. She hosted parties, watched her kids play sports, paddle boarded on the gorgeous coast of California near her home when one day her husband of 17 years admits he's been unfaithful to her for the last 14 years, with a man.  Her life deteriorated in front of her eyes as she realized everything had to change. Not only was the news devastating, but it also rehashed old memories of being raped at 17 years old, which led to her first son.Sara didn't wallow in her sorrow but took the opportunity to pursue her dream to live a life connected to the outdoors and to show the healing power of nature to as many people as she possibly could.  Thus, Live Boldly Coaching was born and her story of pain has become one of strength and compassion with all sorts of adventures, like earning a Guinness World Record for leading her friend Shawn C…

Ep. 482: Paragliding off Volcanoes – Adrian Garza

Image
When Adrian’s wife thought it would be a good idea to learn how to Paraglide, she probably didn’t foresee that in a relatively short amount of time, her husband would be summiting and flying solo off volcanoes near their home in Mexico City.
Obviously, Adrian took to the sport quickly and it gave him a completely different view of his other favorite hobby, climbing. But with their recent family addition of a little girl and limited time off work, Adrian needed a way to summit mountains over 18,000 feet and return home in the same day. This led him to sleeping in a hypoxic chamber to decrease the amount of time needed to acclimate to high elevation.  Talk about dedication to adventure. What’s your excuse?
Adrian will also be supporting Marko Hrgetic in the Red Bull X-Alps this June.

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.

Ep. 479: Using Nature to Navigate - Tristan Gooley

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. Don’t tune out, because Tristan shares why these skills are important for the p…

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.
