Born and raised in Colorado Aisha, is the founder of the No Man's Land Film Festival. She is an avid skier, climber, sailor, runner and overall outdoor enthusiast. Aisha created the film festival as a means to justify an end. She wanted to see and connect with women who enjoyed and navigated a world similar to hers, and so began the planning. 

At their core,  the No Man's Land Film Festival is an all-female adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. It is a collaboration and celebration of men and women who are deeply engaged in enhancing female presence in the adventure arena. The goal of this festival is to connect like-minded individuals who are action-oriented, wish to support a shared vision of gender equality, have a desire to experience their passions and environments through a uniquely female lens, and above all, love adventure. Along with cultivating a deep interest in exploring the vastness of our planet from a female point of view, No Man's Land strives to create a history of motivating audiences to implement and inspire change. Their mission transcends the films presented; and acts as a platform for progressive thought and movement in the outdoor industry.  Along with cultivating a deep interest in exploring the vastness of our planet from a female point of view, No Man's Land strives to create a history of motivating audiences to implement and inspire change.

"With the environmental crisis being in it’s current state, we want to support and inspire women to get into their environments, while cultivating a deep respect and sense of responsibility for the places where we play. The reward that we find from pursuing our passions is driven strongly by the health of our environment. Our love of adventure partnered with our love for wild and beautiful places inspires us to act as an advocate for the environments we love, meanwhile facilitating the connection between place and play."

Now, you may be wondering what exactly is The Mountain Outpost? Simply put, it is a place where outdoor recreation meets conservation and activism. It is both a community and a podcast for the lovers and protectors of the mountains. 

The Mountain Outpost gives a voice to environmental protection in outdoor recreation. Our work connects today's most influential environmental change makers, everyday activists and outdoor enthusiasts, supporting one another to keep our mountain environments beautiful and sustainable. 

I want to create a place that is a platform for athletes, brands, ambassadors, organizations, and the public to come and tell stories and share thoughts and ideas. My goal is to help bring a better and overall connection to tying together the outdoor recreation industry and environmental protection. 

What is Our Vision?? The amount of information online and in the media is overwhelming. The goal of The Mountain Outpost is to give people a global perspective on issues related to the environment and outdoor recreation. We stand out through a unique lens of storytelling giving our audience a global perspective on topics related to the environment and outdoor recreation. Storytelling creates an emotional connection and We want to create a unique perspective through storytelling while connecting with our audience. 

What is Our Mission Statement? The Mountain Outpost is a website that is going to be a gathering space for like minded individuals to come and access blog content and podcasts related to the environmental sustainability related to outdoor recreation. The purpose is to be a curator of information while taking our knowledge and research and continue to grow and expand upon it while educating and informing the public. 

 So who Am I??

What is my Background??

I, Megan Davin, am an outdoorist. I live work, and study around nature. My passion lies within connecting the outdoor industry, a field where I have been working in since 2006 and the environment, a topic that has sparked my interest since grade school. After completing my Master of Science in Environmental Studies this spring I realized that I wanted to combine that passion with my 10 years experience working in and around the outdoor recreation industry.

So…. WHY should you care??

After doing a LOT of research I discovered that there was no one platform to finding articles, stories and podcasts surrounded by my interests. I would spend hours combing the internet just to try and find something.

The way I view it is that my passion for the outdoors and outdoor recreation cannot exist without certain protections of the places I love to recreate. But often times there is a disconnect between them, and we are a resource that helps tie together and show the connections and tell the stories proving that one can’t exist without the other.

We look forward to you joining in on our community. We all have stories to tell and these are the ones tying together outdoor recreation and the environment.  We look forward to the journey and sharing stories with you.
