Ep. 067: Tamela Rich - American Road Trip Expert & Solo Motorcyclist
Tamela Rich began her love affair with the open road as a child, traveling with her family in the Vista Cruiser wagon from Ohio to California every other summer. She re-discovered America in the wake of a personal crisis, when she learned how to ride a motorcycle and took her first solo cross-country ride. Tamela learned to ride when she was 48 and three months after getting her motorcycle endorsement, took off on an 18-state 7500 mile solo trip from NC to Oregon and back. Since then she's traveled 47 states and 5 Canadian provinces on her motorcycle, mostly solo. Her award-winning book, "Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons from Friends Who Faced Cancer" was based on two years of cross-country motorcycling for cancer causes.
Tamela is also writing her new book "Fear: How to communicate with the Great Messenger of Life". If you have a great story about fear or questions about fear, feel free to contact Tamela through her website.
Have you ever wanted to just quit your job, sell your house and head out on an adventure for a decade? Yeah, me too. Today we chat with someone who actually did that and is still doing it, Brian Trautman. After being unsatisfied with the “perfect job”, house, car, etc., he came across a book about sailing across the ocean and knew that was what he needed to do with his life. He sold everything he owned, bought a boat, and sailed to New Zealand from Seattle. That first experience started a trend that would extend for more than a decade and lead to countless adventures that have been chronicled on his YouTube channel: Sailing SV Delos, gaining over 100 million views in the process. To date, Brian has visited 6 continents, 40 countries, and crossed every ocean on his 53 foot Ketch.

When Marty's 60th birthday came rolling around, he knew he needed to do something adventurous that took him out of his normal routine and into an entirely different frame of mind. From that longing came the idea to race in the Tour Divide, a 2,750-mile, mostly off-road, mountain bike race from Canada to Mexico along the Continental Divide.
Now, at the age of 65, Marty is gearing up this June for another TD attempt. His 6th time on the trail.
Our most adventurous years don't have to be the earliest. In fact, they can be the most recent. I hope Marty's story helps you see your own adventure in 2020.
Kristin Knight Pace is one tough person. Not many people would go to Alaska during the winter, completely alone, to take care of a team of sled dogs to get over a recent divorce. However, that's exactly what she did. That toughness has also led her to become one of only 29 women to complete both the Iditarod and the Yukon Question 1000-mile sled dog races. Kristin is now remarried and has started a new journey, motherhood. She also works as a wilderness planner for Denali National Park and has recently written a book about her experiences, This Much Country. It can be found following the link below or pretty much anywhere else you buy books.
