Ep 24: Life Through The Eyes of An Extreme Adventurer

JCF_YT_EP24

Life Through The Eyes of An Extreme Adventurer

Going on an adventure is exciting

We come home with stories to tell

About all the cool stuff we did

Amazing places we got to see

My guest is Luke Richmond and he’a living-breathing outdoor adventurer 

Now we’re not talking about cute little hikes up the hill

Luke has climbed some of the most dangerous summits in the world 

Crossing through crevasses in the ice where there’s completely nothing below

Getting saved by the skin of their teeth from a vengeful group of tribesmen in the Pacific

Rowed across the Atlantic for 70 days

Braved sandstorms through the Gobi Desert

The kind of passion that puts one’s life on the line

But these expeditions he puts himself into are more than meets the eye

These are life lessons

A test of one’s self

A gamble of life and death

When we’re alone out in the wild

We make no different from a deer caught in a snowstorm

Mother nature uncovers for us everything else that we’ve never seen

From the beauty of our surroundings to the demons inside of us

The situation forces ourselves to recognize what really matters in life and what doesn’t 

I’ve always wanted to have an adventurer to come to my podcast because there’s just so much to learn from them

I’m always happy to live vicariously through their stories 

And this episode is definitely all of that

So carry on and I’ll see you in the episode. 

Cheers.
