We’re called here for many different reasons. The Talkeetna cowgirl who has a love for fashion finds solace on her weekends to the White Mountains. Years of working in a cubicle payed off as a business dream is realized for a new CEO who hits the climbing gym in the mornings before work.

I held out from buying a down jacket for quite some time. My rationale isn’t totally clear but it had something to do with not wanting to look like a marshmallow and the price.
Finally, I gave in and bought the Patagonia Down Sweater and I’ll admit, it was a life changer!
Now imagine that you’re a kid who doesn’t even know those things exist—doesn’t even know they’re possible. You’ve never stepped foot on a single patch of New York City’s 578 miles of coastline. You never knew there were 10 National Parks in New York City and northern New Jersey, and 8 state parks in New York City alone. You never knew you lived just a few miles from wetlands, grasslands, nature preserves, and bird sanctuaries
Kids of Kathmandu and Discover Outdoors are excited about our fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp. Our two organizations have combined resources to offer a unique two week experience in Nepal. Kids of Kathmandu supports an orphanage in Bhaktapur* and other projects concentrating on children, education, and solar energy. Discover Outdoors has established themselves by leading some of the most unforgettable adventures around the world.
Having never hiked with a group, I had no idea what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. We all went around, said our names, where we were from, and our best experience outdoors. Everyone had something unique to share, whether it was about hiking the Inca Trail in Peru or Grand Teton National Park. I could tell right away that I’d be spending the day with like-minded people, and this excited me.

“When you see a completed wall that you have built together with a group of people that only days earlier were total strangers, there is a bond that’s created that. It’s hard to define…”
For Valentine’s Day we bring you a story of an adventurer with a big heart who spent two weeks volunteering to aid elephants in Namibia.
Sometimes we think of adventures as adrenaline-inducing epic experiences, but I believe that ordinary moments can contain their own brand of adventure. When your perspective shifts, or you’re challenged with discovering something new you’d never noticed before. Like green sand.

Do you have a personal motto? Plus est en vous. (You have more in you than you think.)
Last August we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Appalachian Trail. Splitting up, each of five groups hiked one South to North section of the trail starting at the Kittatiny Mountains in New Jersey and finishing at Harriman State Park in New York. One group hiked the section between Rt 284 and 94 in New Jersey. Led by Discover Outdoors guide Gary Lyon this is what they found.
Beautiful weekend canoeing in the Adirondacks.
We circle up to 3,000’ and Matt instructs me to pull the red knob on my left. I hear a “ping” as the tow rope is released. The sound of the plane’s propeller dies to a muffled buzz as it peels off to our left. We slow to 50 miles per hour, the optimal speed for efficient gliding. Matt points out a few landmarks, including the Manhattan skyline just barely perceptible on the horizon. He asks me, “Do you want to take over the controls?” This is what I’ve been waiting for.
Thanks again for such a great day yesterday on the eight-mile hike! You made getting outdoors with other, fun people really easy and low-maintenance. I’ll definitely join the group again. — Karen
