    Ep. 657: Bikepacking the Ecuadorian Andes - Revisited - Maggie Burke & Uriel Eisen

    Originally aired September 28, 2017

    Uriel Eisen and Maggie Burke made their own Bikepacking bags and tent to go bikepacking in the Ecuadorian Andes. There were a lot of unknowns going in. Neither of them spoke much Spanish and neither of had done much high altitude activities. It was challenging at times with brutally rugged terrain, but the friendly people and the grandeur of the Andes made it incredibly rewarding for these two! Check it out.

    Ep. 656: Using Adventure Sports to Change the World - Billy Starr

    Ep. 656: Using Adventure Sports to Change the World - Billy Starr

    When Billy’s mother, Betty, was diagnosed with cancer he decided to return home to Massachusetts instead of leaving for his climbing trip to Nepal. Billy had just graduated from college in Colorado and the world was seemingly his oyster.

    As his mother’s cancer worsened, those free-spirited experiences became less and less important and were ultimately replaced with grief after Betty tragically passed away from cancer in 1974.

    After floundering a few years and wondering how to process the grief, Billy’s desire to “do something” continued to grow. He took action in 1980 by organizing the first Pan-Mass Challenge as a way to make sense of the grief and carry on the legacy of his mother.

    The challenge would be to ride a bicycle across Massachusetts and raise money for the Jimmy Fund ( http://www.jimmyfund.org/ ) and Dana-Farber Foundation ( https://danafarber.jimmyfund.org/site/SPageServer/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvduK0pXS6gIVzZyzCh0p8AcJEAAYASAAEgJjmvD_BwE&pagename=agda_danafarber_cancer_donation2&s_src=AGDA101419AA&s_subsrc=AGDA101419AA&utm_campaign=AGDA101419AA&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=google ). 36 people joined that first year and they raised $10,000. The PMC was born.

    As founder and executive director of the Pan-Mass Challenge for over 40 years, Billy has grown the PMC into the largest single fundraising event in the country. To date, more than $700 million dollars has been raised, 6,000 riders participate every year with 4,000 volunteers, and participation from 200 companies.

    Ep. 653: Backpacking Legend - Revisited - Andrew Skurka

    Ep. 653: Backpacking Legend - Revisited - Andrew Skurka

    Originally aired March 8, 2019

    Andrew is essentially a "professional backpacker" who is best known for his long-distance backpacking trips, many of which are firsts.

    For instance, his 6,875-mile Great Western Loop, his 7,778-mile Sea-to-Sea Route and his 4,679-mile "loop" of Alaska on foot, raft, and ski. He also has completed a plethora of shorter adventurers that would be on anyone's bucket list.

    He's been considered the John Muir and Henry David Thoreau of Generation Y, was Backpacker Magazine Person of the Year, and National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, among other awards.

    However, today's episode is not specifically about those adventures, but about what life has been like after those achievements. How has he built a sustainable career from backpacking? What future adventures is he planning? Listen in to find out.

    Ep. 652: The Longest Canoe Trip Ever Done - Dana Starkell

    Ep. 652: The Longest Canoe Trip Ever Done - Dana Starkell

    When 10-year-old Dana bought a book about Tarzan rather than a candy bar with his first $1 allowance, he had no idea just how fateful that decision would be.

    After being inspired by the book he told his dad, Don, that he wanted to walk to the Amazon River. Don, being the imaginative adventurer that he was, took his son's request seriously and began planning what would become the world's longest-ever canoe trip.

    It would take 10 years before Don, Dana, and his brother, Jeff, would set out on their 12,000 mile, 2-year-long journey to the mouth of the Amazon River.

    Jeff eventually dropped out of the adventurere, but Don and Dana made it to the end, earning their induction into the Guinness Book of World Records ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinness_Book_of_World_Records ) for having completed the longest canoe journey ever, a distance of 12,181 miles (19,603 kilometres).
