WHY DO YOU #CHOOSEADVENTURE?
Because of where I live and the life choices I have made I feel adventure has come without me realizing I have chosen it.... Which I LOVE!!
ADVENTURE MAKES YOU FEEL...
FREE and in the moment.
HOW HAS ADVENTURE CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
Adventure has shown me that I am a much more capable person then I ever imagined, and I will therefore be fine in any crazy situation that comes up! I have also learned that adventure doesn't always come in a traditional package. A few years ago my husband called me while I was in Europe for work saying he had adopted a mule! Little did I know this adventure would lead to us adopting 4 more horses (an Arab, 2 Mustangs and a Quarter horse)!
FAVORITE TYPE OF ADVENTURE?
The ones I don't know the outcome of.
FAVORITE ADVENTURE TO DATE?
Finishing LaRuta, supposedly one of the toughest mountain bike races in the world. And finishing well.
WHAT IS YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE PLANNED?
Ecuador in January!
YOUR ULTIMATE ADVENTURE BUCKET LIST IS?
I'm not really a bucket list sort of gal. I do know I really want to continue to travel to faraway places and ride a moto down the Baja peninsula. I'm also intrigued by how other folks in other countries live simply with what they have.
THE PERSON/PEOPLE WHO INSPIRE ME MOST TO TAKE AN ADVENTURE...
My husband. Every crazy thing I have ever done, other than moving to Crested Butte, was because of Travis. Several raft trips down the Grand Canyon, the La Ruta mtb bike race, riding motos in the mountains of Thailand, driving down the entire length of Baja multiple times, surfing in Costa Rica...
ADVENTURE ITEM YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT?
Action body wipes and a down jacket!
