    Jim McLennan—E14—Live It Up With Mountain Life

    Jim McLennan is a fly fishing guide, instructor, television personality, and author. After a life on the water you might even call him a purist, which is awesome because he has taught thousands of people to throw flies over the years and passed along—first-hand—much of the old-school knowledge and philosophy that’s also found in his writing. Jim’s latest book is Trout Tracks, is a collection of essays now available from Rocky Mountain books.

    Robin Esrock—E13—Live It Up with Mountain Life

    In 2005, with $20,00 earned the hard way (a car hit him whilst riding his bicycle), Robin Esrock embarked on a 23-country round the world tour with no real plan except to say yes to everything and let the wierdness lead the way. Along the way, he basically invented travel blogging (for better or for worse), kicked off a storied television and publishing career, and became one of the most storied and interesting dudes we know.

    Frank Wolf—E12—Live it Up with Mountain Life

    Frank Wolf is the kind of guy who just heads out there into the wild and cranks off incredible trips and adventures. Like a 171-day paddle across Canada or a ski tour across Baffin Island. He’s an author, a photographer, a filmmaker and on this episode he talks about bigfoots, lunching with a Prime Minister in stinking paddling gear, and why getting out there is easier than people thing.

    Tony Richardson — E11 — Live it Up with Mountain Life

    Tony Richardson is a big wall climber and an industrial designer who has created gear for top-of-the-game outdoor brands, as well as up and comers. He's a tinkerer and a perfectionist and sometimes he has to accept that they've already made ten thousand of the plastic clip he suddenly knows how to make better. He also has a sick mullet. This one is for the gear junkies!
