    Luc Mehl is a lover of Alaskan wilderness and nature, with an incredible ‘adventure CV’ under his belt. Born, raised, and residing in Alaska, he has traversed the three highest mountains in North America, headed out to remote and wild regions of Alaska, and completed extreme, multi-day endurance events. For education and vacation, he has also traveled and explored places like Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Nepal. All of this while expanding his self-powered method to include hiking, biking, ice-skating, pack rafting, and skiing.

    In the episode, we discuss traversing the three biggest mountains in North America, discovering – and staying well away from – the line of acceptable risk, adventures in Alaska and the Alaskan Wilderness Classics, experiencing ‘gifts’ of nature, ‘good fear’ and ‘bad fear’, the 60% rule, and so much more such as mindset and even mental health in the outdoors. 

    Luc Mehl

    Luc Mehl is an incredibly accomplished outdoorsman and adventurer. With such a huge ‘adventure CV’ even just for Alaska, it was a complete pleasure to have him on the show.

    With the background he has, it’s no wonder that he has gone on to write his first book: The Packrafting Handbook; the definitive instructional resource for packrafting—everything you need to know to begin, improve, or assist others.

    You can buy this and check out his other trips on his website here, and follow him on Instagram here.

    Ep.97 - The Sound of Volcanoes, Glaciers, and Rainforests with George Vlad

    Ep.97 - The Sound of Volcanoes, Glaciers, and Rainforests with George Vlad

    https://linktr.ee/BetweenTheMountains 

    Read the full blog here: https://wp.me/pbYsXe-KU 

    George Vlad travels to and explores wild and remote places to capture soundscapes. Doing his best to avoid man-made sounds to grasp the purest of sound, his expeditions have led him all over the world from glaciers to volcanoes - providing him with an inspiring and positive view of adventure and conservation along the way.

    In this episode, we discuss unique encounters with wildlife, recording poachers and illegal mining, the importance of positivity, expeditions to capture sound, pairing sound capture with expeditions, escaping burnout of 100 hours per week to the Romanian mountains, capturing sound from glaciers to rainforests to volcanoes, and so much more! This one is a must listen.

    Sitting and chatting with George was truly inspirational. Hearing all about a different approach to expeditions, his fascinating experiences with wildlife, insightful view on positivity, and cool approach to challenges has only grown the fire in me to explore, and I hope it does for you all too. 

    You can follow his adventures or even join George by checking out his website here, listen to his work and soundscapes on YouTube here, or to keep up to date with his photography you can do so here. Plus Twitter and Soundcloud.

    Lastly, I mention in the podcast two other shows George has featured on which explore the technical aspect more. They are here, both are great:

    Read the full blog here: https://betweenthemountains.org/2021/03/26/what-you-need-to-know-for-denali-and-alaska/ 

    This episode is from The Road To Denali series, read more here: https://betweenthemountains.org/the-road-to-denali/ 

    Denali is not a mountain you want to head out to unprepared. It’s big, it’s cold, and it’s stormy. So, future guest Luc Mehl offered his expertise to offer a bird’s eye view on Denali and Alaska for us.

    In this episode Luc essentially gives us an overview on Denali specifically, but big mountains in Alaska in general. We talk about the importance of keeping warm and crevasses, being patient, altitude, training, winter camping, logistics of getting to Alaskan ranges, equipment, and more! 

    Luc Mehl

    Luc Mehl is an extremely accomplished adventurer in Alaska. Just adopting the outdoors as a part of his lifestyle, Luc has experience from Alaskan Wilderness Classics to traversing the three highest mountains in North America. You can check out his website here and his Instagram here.
