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.

New Year!

Happy New Year. We have been a little quite over here at The Mountain Outpost. We moved from Colorado to Utah, spent a few months reconnecting and then dove straight into winter! But we are happy to announce that the podcast is starting up again this month in January 2017.

We have been working on some special projects, to come about this year and we so excited to share them with you. There has been a lot going on in the media and news around conservation, climate change and protecting our wild lands. We hope you join us this year as we begin to explore these different topics, what they mean and why they matter to us. We also plan to bring new profile pieces of those who we have talked to in the past and of course feature lots of new stories, profiles and people in the future.

New years are full of resolutions, promises and hope. We hope you are charging into the future full steam ahead, we know we sure are. And if you are looking for a little creative help- we recommend you check out a new book by Brendan Leonard of Semi-Rad.com -  Make it-Till You- Make it: 40 Myths & Truths About Creating, having received this over the holidays and reading it in one sitting it was the perfect zing to get moving again. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Once again, Happy New Year and we can’t wait to share more with you this year!
