    Episode 015 - Tales From The Mountain | Jared King

    Episode 015 - Tales From The Mountain | Jared King

    After he returned from summiting Mt. Kilimanjaro, Jared King was looking for more. He wanted to know what was next. In a moment of serendipity, he learned about 29029 and was immediately drawn to the experience. 

    In this episode of the 29029 podcast Jared discusses his experience of the Utah virtual event in 2020 and his goals for the 'family reunion' that will go down at Snowbasin, Utah in 2021. 

    For lessons on dealing with mental blocks and challenges, this is a must listen episode. 

    "I sat down on a bench and started hysterically crying. It just came out of me. I was so emotional, and it was such a low moment. It brought up so many questions and feelings that had been suppressed and that I needed to work through. Am I good enough? Can I do this? Do I have what it takes? Am I strong enough? Am I enough as a person? These are questions that many of us have in our heads, but we’re never given the opportunity to express or deal with. 29029 is a microcosm for how you think about life and how you think about everything else you do. Dealing with those emotions allowed me to make progress in life and will be a moment I won’t forget."

    Episode 012 - Tales From The Mountain | Dave Hollis

    Dave Hollis and his wife Rachel Hollis, came to 29029 Utah, with little to no concept of what they were in for. What transpired in the 48 hours to follow proved to be the most transformative experience of Dave's life. It allowed him to reframe what he deemed possible, and he has used the skills and belief he developed on the mountain to face his latest challenge, divorce. 

    In today's episode you'll hear Dave articulately describe how his 29029 experience set him on a physical and mental journey of discovery in 2020, that he admits may not have been navigated as successfully, if not for his time at Snowbasin in the Summer of 2019.

    Episode 011 - Tales From The Mountain | Chuck Wade

    Chuck Wade is an important part of the 29029 community and he has an impactful tale to tell. 

    In April 2018, Chuck was in a place that will be familiar for many. He seemingly had it all, a great job, supportive partner and great family life. Yet -- there was something missing.  A disconnection from himself. A battle with depression and anxiety led him to 29029 and a chance to do something for himself. To set a goal and do more than he ever thought possible. 

    The whole experience has translated into more confidence and a renewed sense of self. He's a better husband, father and businessman as a result of his 29029 journey. 

    Catch this inspiring and authentic tale from the mountain and read more about Chuck's story here.
