In our eyes, there’s nothing better. No gas, no engines, no pollution, no garbage. Human-power is clean, quiet and keeps your body running well.
Pure human power. It’s you against yourself. You against the rock. You against the elements. No outside assistance. The most satisfying battle there is.
From Reader to Adventurer
A basic outdoor education. Some people had it before they could walk, others they still spend most of their time in the concrete jungle and are just starting to learn.
Everybody, and we mean everybody, can get outside and benefit from it. Whether you are stuck in the office in a big city and sneak out onto the trails on the weekend or you are outside 23 hours of the day already, there is lots to learn and lots of people to learn from.
Everyone can learn. Everyone can teach. One thing is for sure, with regular baby steps anyone can go from armchair adventurer to real one. And we want to help you every step of the way.
Sometimes it’s tough to schedule some outside time around life. Plans get made, we get busy, life gets upside-down.
One way to help get out more is to schedule time every week.
Treat it like any other appointment with a client, boss or friends. No questions. It can be tough to fit that into your schedule but it feels amazing when you get out. Make it every week and it will become a habit.
Be careful though, it might turn into 3, 4 or 5 times a week. But we don’t mind when that happens!
Save the Places We Play
If you can’t tell, we like playing outside. The trees and dirt and lakes and mountains are the basic pieces of our playground. But those pieces are becoming hard to find, our playground is getting smaller and smaller. Concrete is permanently covering over the natural world. That’s not ok with us.
We work hard to save the natural places for playing. Anything you buy from this site, 25% is donated to planting trees and saving land for park.
Some people don’t value the wilderness the way we do. They don’t care about throwing their garbage out in the woods and leaving it there. We strive to pick up at least one piece of garbage every trip. If everyone did the same we’d hardly see any garbage at all.
Share the Story (or don’t)
If the story doesn’t get out in the form of video, photos or writing, no one else can see it, learn from it, be inspired by it. Any size of adventure can produce a good story and even just showing what the trail looks like could help a beginner get outside for the first time. Even our own photos help us through those days and weeks when it’s hard to get outside.
We’re not saying every adventure has to be plastered all over Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok and Twitch. Most of that benefit and enjoyment of fresh air, good dirt and mountain vistas comes from just being there and in the moment.
There’s lots of room out there. Come play outside with us.
