'How do we remember an experience? What do we glean from a journey?
Personal growth is at the heart of adventure, but the lessons we learn and the memories we make differ between each individual.
Sometime Thereafter is a phone conversation about a journey into the Canadian wilderness, the way we process experience and remember our past.
Thereabouts has been interested in exploring the various ways sport, and adventure impact those who participate in them. In September 2018 myself and three friends embarked on a self supported journey through Canada with the purpose of getting to know the people of the place we were travelling through and learning what we could from them about living.
The trip was an extension of the ride that became Outskirts: The Big Land and was a trip that has had a lasting impact on myself for innumerable reasons, not the least of which the shared experience with my three counterparts.
As anyone who has done any sort of self-powered journey with friends will attest, what the experience is for each individual is vastly different. We all confront our own demons, we all have our own motivations, and we all have our strengths and weaknesses.
With that in mind we sat on the footage for over a year before calling up those still willing to hear what the trip was to them, and how their lives had been impacted so many months later.
Let me tell you, a lot can happen in a year.
In the first installment of the Sometime Thereafter podcast special, I interview Nico via phone to hear about the power of journey sometime thereafter.
