Diaries of the Wild Ones is a collection of adventure tales shared by Aaron Shanks and the people he meets around the World. With an appetite for the unique and pushing themselves to the limits, these tales from the road, recorded on the road, will have you on the edge of your seat.

Hayden Quinn Presents - The Yacht Robbery
Guest host Hayden Quinn interviews me for the 3rd part of the yacht story. This time anchored in the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, our yacht S.V Beach House on the Moon was boarded and robbed taking all our possessions, passports, money, camera gear. $8000 worth of belongings all gone. With only one small village in the vicinity we knew the pirates were close. So, armed with machetes, dive knives and replica guns, we set off to get our valuables back. Mind games began, and things got really real, really fast as primitive minds clashed. One wild story, an episode you wont want to miss.
