Ep. 620: Backcountry Foodie - Aaron Owens Mayhew

Image
Powered by RedCircle For many of us, an adventure is life-changing. In fact, it’s often a distinction between life before and after that adventure which leaves many adventurers with the idea of a completely different lifestyle as well as career post-adventure. Today, we’re hearing from Aaron Mayhew about what it was like for her to experience a midlife crisis, decide to hike the PCT and wanting to take her dietitian skills out of a hospital setting, and into the backcountry.  Starting a career around your passion for the outdoors isn’t easy, but with the right amount of dedication, knowledge, and hard work, you increase your chances of success dramatically.  Her business is producing quick, easy, and nutritious recipes for backpackers and other adventurers. Her meals aren’t only for adventure athletes. They are also great for quick and nutritious meals you can have at home or have ready in your pantry for quick weekend getaways, work, etc.  She joins us from her van in New Mexico afte…

Ep. 613: Crossing the Darien Gap on a Motorcycle - Revisited - JD Smith

The Pan-American Highway is an 18,000-mile continuous network of roads from the southern tip of South America to the northern tip of Alaska, with the sole exception being the Darien Gap, a 60-mile separation in the road through a nearly impenetrable jungle on the Panama/Colombian border. Most folks opt to go around the gap by boat or plane. Today’s guest, JD Smith, decided to go through the 99-mile long jungle by motorcycle instead. Needless to say, this is not your ordinary two-wheeled adventure. www.rtwmototours.com Facebook @RTWMotoTours Instagram: @jdsmithphxaz Athletic Brewing Adventure Grant Application: https://athleticbrewing.com/pages/athletic-brewing-2020-adventure-grant Try CS Instant Coffee for 50% off your first order!

Ep. 612: Family of 6 Thru-Hiking the PCT and More - Strawbridge Family

Image
When a crippling amount of debt kept the Strawbridge family from going on family vacations, they quickly began looking for cheap ways to still enjoy an experience together. That necessity led them to camping and hiking.
After realizing that this type of “vacation” was more rewarding the refueling than a tradition trip, they decided to go all in for an experience of a lifetime to celebrate getting back on track financially.  That led to the idea of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail as a family.  I hope you enjoy this amazing story of great risk, reward, love, and faith.  Follow along their 2020 Continental Divide Trail adventure here:  Instagram: @strawbridgetreks Facebook: @strawbridgetreks YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcjYH6S5RzjyCJoNP8CXEKw Strawbridgetreks.com

Ep. 609: Running & Blindness - Kyle Robidoux

Image
If you’ve ever felt limited by your circumstances or physical limitations, today’s episode is a must-listen. Back in 2010, Kyle was sick and tired of feeling terrible about himself and having a hard time playing with his daughter, so he decided to do something about it. Losing a large amount of weight by walking, and eventually running, is no easy task. After taking into account that Kyle is legally blind, the challenge is exponentially greater.  However, that didn’t stop him from pushing forward, crushing limitations, and finding creative ways to exercise and run, without a full view of what was around him. 10 years later Kyle is running ultras on and off-trail, running between 20-25 hours per week, and advocating for folks in his situation through his career.  Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours. - Richard Bach Kylerobidoux.com Instagram: @blindbeerrunner Twitter: @kyleRrobidoux Athletic Brewing Adventure Grant Application: https://athleticbrewing.com/pages…
