Connecting to Goals
As outdoor enthusiasts we frequently convene here, in a virtual world, which seems utterly opposite to our passion of the outdoors, but the internet allows us to share and bring together our passion and love for the outdoors. We have "met" and connected with so many amazing people through social media. When having the opportunity to travel and finally getting a chance to actually meet some of these people in person, it has been a wonderful experience. In many ways the Internet does bring people closer together because it allows us to make friends in a virtual way or stay in touch with old connections that may not live anywhere near where we live.
Some people say the internet keeps you from people, but we think it can bring your closer, because you can talk to each other more often and sometimes at a deeper level. This vehicle for sharing also allows outdoor enthusiasts to share with friends, family and the world the beauty of what is out there to explore. Everyday we are motivated by the photos we see and stories we read online.
To us it is important to spend a little bit of time every day outside. Many days, this exists as simply as walking the dog or going for a run, because in a perfect world our days off are consumed by adventure and exploration, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, etc.
When we take the time to reconnect again in nature, our often times go- go – go personalities take a back seat, and we can reflect on what I am doing and why. And it is every time that we step back and reflect and come forward with clarity, new ideas and goals. Our goal is to figure out the best way to communicate environmental issues with the general public, breaking down the information to make it easily understandable and accessible.
