IFMC #4

Jul 30 2020


Before ending my Saturday night of relaxing on the couch watching Youtube videos, I decided to click on one more before finding my way to bed. This is what I happened to click on, and it was totally worth the 15-minute delay to my head hitting the pillow.

I would love to see more people who look like this discovering the beauty, the challenge, and the benefit to adventuring outside. Her willingness to jump right in and try something new, despite having never camped or mountain biked before, is the exact kind of attitude that I wish more people who say they're not 'outdoorsy' would consider. There's a lot to discover if you just get out and try!
