    Ben Grannis is a 27-year-old Eagle Scout from Ridgefield, Connecticut. He is in the midst of a 6,000+ mile bike ride (called Eyes Up Ride) around the US to raise awareness for distracted driving and promote digital wellness in partnership with a nonprofit called TextLess Live More and have raised $39,000 to fight distracted driving. 
    In addition to ending distracted driving, Ben’s goal is to show people it's okay to do something scary and uncomfortable and that there is a tremendous amount of growth that can occur when we follow our hearts, embrace vulnerability, and live Eyes Up. 
    Most recently, Ben learned the challenges and stages of a knee injury that set him back over six months and just got back on the bike last month. "Look. Listen. Live." is the Eyes Up Ride mantra and Ben is committed to showing that anything is possible and it starts with looking up from your phone.

    Ep. 902: Kayaking The Inside Passage - Chris Whittaker

    Ep. 902: Kayaking The Inside Passage - Chris Whittaker

    You may recognize Chris from episode 618, talking about being a full-time adventure guide. He’s back to chat about an epic 72-day sea kayak expedition of the Inside Passage, the 1,200-mile paddle trail from Seattle to Skagway, Alaska. 
    Chris said it was a logistical nightmare in terms of organization, especially due to covid disruptions. However, it paid off with truly wild animal encounters, humpbacks surfacing feet from their kayaks, being 'bumped' by killer whales, and camping in grizzly bear country. 
    On top of that, Chris has changed roles from guide to expedition business owner. Not long after coming home from this adventure, he turned around to guide groups to summited Kilimanjaro twice!

    Ep. 901: First Woman to Circumnavigate the World on Motorcycle - Revisited - Elspeth Beard

    Ep. 901: First Woman to Circumnavigate the World on Motorcycle - Revisited - Elspeth Beard

    Originally aired - July 31, 2017
    In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6.
    Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead.
    When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today.
    Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

    Ep. 900: The American Perimeter Trail - Rue McKenrick

    Ep. 900: The American Perimeter Trail - Rue McKenrick

    Rue McKenrick is a long-distance backpacker and the Executive Director of The American Perimeter Trail Conference. He grew up with the Appalachian Trail running through his backyard in Pennsylvania. After years of international backpacking, he was inspired to return to the US and complete the Triple Crown of backpacking, which includes the Pacific Crest, Continental Divide National Scenic Trails, and the Appalachian Trail. 
    After the completion of the Triple Crown, he first conceived of the American Perimeter Trail as a way to see the entire outline of the US on a single epic journey. 
    McKenrick moved to Bend, Oregon in 2010 and continued to hone his skills of climbing, skiing, trail running, and cycling and in 2019, he began the 12,000 mile scouting trek of the route for the American Perimeter Trail.  2 years later on October 8th, 2022, Rue had a triumphant return to Bend, Oregon where he completed the first thru-hike of the APT.
