Description

We recorded this episode on February 6th and the coronavirus was still just a blip in the United States. As I was listening to the final edit about halfway through the episode (around the 21-minute mark) I realized how apropos this message is in light of the current situation we all find ourselves amidst this global pandemic. 


In this week's episode, I unpack my experience on two outdoor backpacking trips I went on last year with the Tadpole Foundation. To help organize my thoughts I used my sister-in-law's letter she wrote to me, and the rest of the group, for one of these trips. 


Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and take a few minutes to listen to this week as I talk about why some of these adventure/outdoor experiences can be therapeutic, realizing how much excess baggage I have been carrying in my life, and how jumping into the ice-cold Yellowstone River really caused me to examine my identity and true self.


As I wrap up this week's episode I recall a time back in Afghanistan when some soldiers set up a "Starbucks" on the airfield at Bagram Airbase. In the episode, I said this was 2002, but after reflecting more I think the date was sometime in 2004.
