Ep. 902: Kayaking The Inside Passage - Chris Whittaker

You may recognize Chris from episode 618, talking about being a full-time adventure guide. He’s back to chat about an epic 72-day sea kayak expedition of the Inside Passage, the 1,200-mile paddle trail from Seattle to Skagway, Alaska.  Chris said it was a logistical nightmare in terms of organization, especially due to covid disruptions. However, it paid off with truly wild animal encounters, humpbacks surfacing feet from their kayaks, being 'bumped' by killer whales, and camping in grizzly bear country.  On top of that, Chris has changed roles from guide to expedition business owner. Not long after coming home from this adventure, he turned around to guide groups to summited Kilimanjaro twice!  Chris’ first episode on Adventure Sports Podcast: HTTPS://WWW.ADVENTURESPORTSPODCAST.COM/2020/03/EP-618-EPIC-LIFE-OF-FULL-TIME-ADVENTURE.HTML https://www.adventuresportspodcast.com/2020/03/ep-618-epic-life-of-full-time-adventure.html His other links: For Fun’s Sake Expedition YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/@ffsexpedition www.global-shenanigans.com http://www.global-shenanigans.com IG: @global_shenanigans https://www.instagram.com/global_shenanigans/?hl=en Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/adventure-sports-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 901: First Woman to Circumnavigate the World on Motorcycle - Revisited - Elspeth Beard

Originally aired - July 31, 2017 https://www.adventuresportspodcast.com/2017/07/ep-292-first-woman-to-ride-around-world.html In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6. Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead. When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today. Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

Ep. 900: The American Perimeter Trail - Rue McKenrick

Rue McKenrick is a long-distance backpacker and the Executive Director of The American Perimeter Trail Conference. He grew up with the Appalachian Trail running through his backyard in Pennsylvania. After years of international backpacking, he was inspired to return to the US and complete the Triple Crown of backpacking, which includes the Pacific Crest, Continental Divide National Scenic Trails, and the Appalachian Trail.  After the completion of the Triple Crown, he first conceived of the American Perimeter Trail as a way to see the entire outline of the US on a single epic journey.  McKenrick moved to Bend, Oregon in 2010 and continued to hone his skills of climbing, skiing, trail running, and cycling and in 2019, he began the 12,000 mile scouting trek of the route for the American Perimeter Trail.  2 years later on October 8th, 2022, Rue had a triumphant return to Bend, Oregon where he completed the first thru-hike of the APT.  Learn more about Rue and the APT: __ __ Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/adventure-sports-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

The stories we hear on Adventure Sports Podcast are incredible, but often we are left with a lingering question of “how did they pay for this amazing adventure?”  What I’ve learned through the years from my own adventures and from our hundreds of guests has led me to record this episode and commit to asking that exact question to more guests in the future.  If you have great tips and ideas on how to make adventures more financially feasible that weren’t mentioned in this episode, let us know at info@adventuresportspodcast.com!

Ep. 894: Update With Former ASP Host - Curt Linville

 Happy New Year! Today is a very special episode. We sit down with ASP's original voice (along with Travis Parsons): Curt Linville. Curt and Travis started this podcast back in 2015 with the desire to tell incredible stories of adventure and inspire millions of people to set out on their own adventures.  After nearly four years of hosting the show, Curt and Travis decided to take on new adventures of their own and hand the reigns of this podcast to Mason Gravley, the current host.  Today we're sitting down with Curt to hear how the last few years have been and how his life of adventure has taken shape since leaving the podcast.  I (Mason) thought it would be a great way to start the new year as so many of us are striving for more adventure, better selves, etc. So let's hear from someone doing it!

Ep. 888: The Snowman Race in Bhutan - Nate Bender

Nate is a trail runner and climate activist based in Missoula, Montana. His personal and professional focus is to use both his voice as a mountain athlete and skills in marketing & data science to catalyze a climate-friendly world. He races occasionally, but primarily specializes in fastest known time (FKT) challenges and loves the creative process of dreaming up new linkups. His most recent FKT was the first-known continuous linkup of the tallest peaks in Glacier National Park, Montana; a solo, unsupported six-day effort covering 150 miles and nearly 60k feet of ascent. Nate holds a master’s degree in Resource Conservation — which focuses on the social science of climate action — and is currently in an additional master’s degree in Business Analytics. He is a member of the Protect Our Winters Athlete Alliance and also works as the Marketing Director for Footprints Running, a nonprofit climate action incubator.   These backgrounds and passions made Nate a perfect candidate for the The Snowman Race, which follows the trail of the famous Snowman Trek, which has been completed by fewer people than Everest. Covering 126 miles (203 kilometers) through the wild and challenging terrains with mountain passes as high as 17,946 feet (5470M) the Snowman Race is an ultra-marathon, challenging the world’s fittest and most elite runners to help raise awareness of the impacts of climate change.   Nate’s info:  Instagram: @natebender10 https://www.instagram.com/natebender10/?hl=en Personal website: 10peaksbeforelunch.com https://10peaksbeforelunch.com/ Footprints climate action incubator website: runfootprints.org https://runfootprints.org/   The Snowman Race: snowmanrace.org https://snowmanrace.org/ Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/adventure-sports-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 886: Climbing Volcanoes for Good - Angie Marie

Everybody loves a summit selfie. But most people don't get to peer into the infinite behind-the-scenes moments before and after the shutter snaps-- which is where the true magic happens! In 2022, Angie volunteered for a nonprofit called The Cairn Project to raise grant funding for community organizations that offer wilderness experiences to girls and gender-expansive youth. Her "Adventure Fundraiser" involved climbing five Cascade Volcanoes in Oregon and Washington (including Mt. Rainier), as well as documenting the journey to make mountaineering more accessible to other women. The values and processes of outdoor journeys compel Angie to dig deeper into what's possible for her mind and body— and her mission is to inspire others to do the same. Angie's Instagram: @angvswild https://www.instagram.com/angvswild/ Angie's blog: outspired.org https://www.outspired.org/ where she designs events and creates curricula that inspire folks to joyfully explore the outdoors.

Ep. 885: The Sport of Finding Bigfoot, Seriously - Laura Krantz

“There’s no way Bigfoot could be real... ...at least that’s what I thought.” Laura Krantz is a self-described skeptic. However, several years ago she read an article about Grover Krantz, an anthropology professor and Bigfoot researcher. She thought it odd they shared last names. After more digging, she was surprised to discover that Grover was a cousin to her grandfather. She had to learn more about this mysterious world of folks who believe in the creature but aren’t “crazy”.  What she found was fascinating. These aren’t tin hat-wearing antisocial hermits in the forest. They are professors, teachers, forest rangers, and police officers who all had undeniably strange encounters with a creature that they never thought they’d believe in. Laura, a former NPR producer, documented her journey which she turned into Wild Thing, a podcast about the lore and reality of who or what Bigfoot really is and her quest to know more about the folks who search for it.

Ep. 883: Using Financial Independence to Fuel a Life of Adventure - Revisited - Chris Mamula

Episode originally aired - July 12, 2019 https://www.adventuresportspodcast.com/2019/07/ep-544-using-financial-independence-to.html With any adventure, finances have to be part of the planning. That planning can begin months or years before the adventure even begins. Some folks decide to put it all on a credit card. Others knock on the door of hundreds of potential sponsors to pay for their trips while others just decide to suffer immensely on the adventure because of lack of funds (been there, done that).  Doesn't it make more sense to build a frugal and thoughtful lifestyle that allows adventures to be more realistic, more often? Chris Mamula joins us today to talk about some very easy and key steps that anyone can do to help make adventures more possible in their lives. Chris is an avid adventurer and has achieved financial independence and decided to retire from physical therapy at age 41, giving him years of possible adventures for himself and his family.  His blog: www.caniretireyet.com https://www.caniretireyet.com/ Chris’ book: www.choosefi.com/book https://www.choosefi.com/book/ Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/adventure-sports-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

In spring 2022 Mark and Nic completed the first known ski traverse of Colorado trail. They took 27 days to cover the 486 mile trail, recalling the experience as one of the most difficult things they have ever done. In spite of the variety of navigation, emotional, and physical challenges and a whole slew of gear failure and malfunctions, Mark and Nic feel extremely lucky to have had this experience. While it may be a while before Nic can talk Mark into another month long ski traverse, they look forward to many other adventures to come!

Ep. 881: How Adventure Helps Us Start Over - Revisited - Sara Schulting-Kranz

Originally aired - February 22, 2019 https://www.adventuresportspodcast.com/2019/02/ep-484-wilderness-coaching-and-living.html Seven 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 and came out as gay.  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 Cheshire to record the fastest rim-to-rim-to-rim run across the Grand Canyon by a blind person.  No matter where she goes, she can now be found on mountaintops all around the country wearing a glamorous pair of bright red high heel shoes. Get out there and live boldly.  www.liveboldlycoaching.com http://www.liveboldlycoaching.com Instagram @saraschultingkranz https://www.instagram.com/saraschultingkranz/?hl=en www.walkthroughthis.com http://www.walkthroughthis.com - Documentary Website Support this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/adventure-sports-podcast/donations Advertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brands Privacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Ep. 878: Helping Others Find Careers in Adventure - Revisited - Courtney Condy

Originally aired - December 21, 2018 https://www.adventuresportspodcast.com/2018/12/ep-457-helping-others-find-careers-in.html Courtney Condy graduated college in 2013 and jumped right into the corporate sector thinking she would have time later to travel and pursue her adventures. She was wrong. After finding inspiration from a friend and none from her job, she finally booked an Everest Base Camp Trek in 2015. On that journey, she ended up almost dying in the April 25 Nepal earthquake. It was an adventure, to say the least. It changed her whole life to the point she opted out of her desk job and started working as an adventure travel guide all over the world. Earlier this year after seeing a gap in the adventure career market she decided to break away from her job, once again, to launch her own company, Occupation Wild, where he hopes of helping others find their dream job and live life beyond 9 to 5.
