    Ep. 1032: From Canoeing in Michigan to Protecting the Amazon Rainforest - Eric Rutter

    Ep. 1032: From Canoeing in Michigan to Protecting the Amazon Rainforest - Eric Rutter

    During his day job Eric writes about Michigan football for Sports Illustrated and works at a Mexican Restaurant. However, during breaks from work, Eric takes solo travel experiences all around the world to some of the most exotic places. Eric’s confidence in travel began a few years ago when he attempted a 120-mile solo canoe trip on the Au Sable River in his hometown of Grayling. The seemingly familiar location and experience made Eric realize home is much more adventurous than we often think. 
    That accomplishment led Eric to eventually travel to the Amazon Rainforest, where he saw firsthand the destruction of the most biodiverse place on earth and immediately got involved in helping protect it.

    Ep. 1031: Riding a Horse Across America - Revisited - Jesse McNeil

    Ep. 1031: Riding a Horse Across America - Revisited - Jesse McNeil

    Originally aired August 22, 2021
    At 37, Jesse McNeil—at times carpenter, commercial fisherman, dabbler in real estate—decided to buy an untrained horse, make himself into a horseman, and ride all the way across the United States, from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean.
    A fiercely independent traveler, Jesse had navigated previous coast-to-coast trips—solo journeys by moped, bicycle, and small airplane. This time, however, he had a partner: a five-year-old Tennessee Walking Horse named Pepper. An inexperienced horseman with an equally inexperienced mount, Jesse would quickly discover the immense challenges of his new undertaking. Over the course of eight months and fourteen states—beginning in Oregon and ending on a beach in New Hampshire—he would be tested many times over as he learned not only what it took to keep Pepper safe and healthy, but the true value of qualities that he had once easily dismissed: patience and companionship.
    The generosity of strangers, from helpful ranchers and storekeepers to suburban families, shaped the pair’s journey east. And while at some points the miles didn’t unfold as Jesse hoped, others yielded unexpected events that changed his perspective—and quite possibly, his future. Written with honesty, grit, and grace, On the Hoof captures an arduous voyage that broke a man down and built him back up, with the help of one special horse.
    To find out more about Jesse and his book, On the Hoof, which will be available on Aug 5th, go to onthehoofbook.com.

    Ep. 1030: The Importance of Trying New Adventures - Paddy O’Connell

    Ep. 1030: The Importance of Trying New Adventures - Paddy O’Connell

    One of the hardest things to get over when trying new adventure sports as an adult is looking like a newbie. However, that’s exactly what we need to do in order to experience the joy of new adventures. Today, we’re talking to someone facing those challenges head on and bringing a camera with him so you can see exactly what it’s like. 
    With his enthusiasm for learning new things and his 6’5”, 250 pounds of questionably athletic mass, Paddy O’Connell is like an average, everyday outdoor enthusiast who’s been inflated way beyond average, standard size. With Paddy’s new show, PaddyO Sucks At, pairs him with coaches and mentors from different sports and activities, at which it’s doubtful he’ll excel, in a celebration of the one thing we can all relate to: being a beginner.

    Ep. 1028: Biking Across America With No Food or Money - Daniel Troia

    Ep. 1028: Biking Across America With No Food or Money - Daniel Troia

    Daniel Troia is a filmmaker who just released his new documentary, "We Are All In This Together", which traces his cross-country bicycle journey with no food, no money, and his search for human connection. The film captures the interactions that Troia has with the people who lend a helping hand, and shows that those who face the most adversity in their lives, often have the most to give.
    A journey taken entirely alone, Troia crosses the Great Basin Desert, climbs over 11,000 foot mountain passes in Montana, and rides over the Sierras, Rockies and Appalachian Mountain ranges. After covering 7,000 miles and 19 states, the film suggests that although so many things can feel overwhelming in our world right now, the one thing that we CAN control is how we treat each other.
    “We Are All In This Together” is now streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Google Play!

    Ep. 1027: How to Beat Monday - Revisited - Mike Chambers

    Ep. 1027: How to Beat Monday - Revisited - Mike Chambers

    Originally aired November 8th, 2021
    Summiting mountains in South America, bikepacking in the desert and climbing classic big wall routes sound like epic adventures that you’d have to save lots of vacation days for, right? The travel alone would take up at least a day or two, especially for any international trips. Not to mention making arrangements for other responsibilities like kids, pets, work, etc. 
    Mike Chambers and his adventure partner, Jason Antin, think otherwise. In fact, they think you can leave the office on Friday at 5pm, have an adventure of a lifetime and be back at work at 9am on Monday. Is it easy? Of course not. Is it worth it? C’mon now. 
    It all started when Mike was living in Boston and Jason was based in Colorado and the two came up with the bright idea of summiting Mt. Rainier in a true weekend. To the astonishment of the park rangers that hesitantly granted them the permit, their plan worked. Although the morning meetings that Monday were not as productive as they usually were, they both walked away with a pretty epic response to the age-old question, “what did you do this weekend?” 
    Once the concept of Beat Monday was proven, Jason and Mike began dreaming of what else could be possible with this format. Bikerafting, big wall climbing, ultrarunning, and international travel began to fill their weekends and was even made into an OutsideTV series, Beat Monday. 
    Mike is joining us today to tell us about what he’s learned through the Beat Monday mindset and what’s possible for you to beat whatever your Monday is.
