The Three Steps To Adventure


Over-burdened with the recycling, demanding kids, and pesky phone calls? Sounds like what you need is an adventure, and Matt Hunter and Andrew Shandro are here to help. Ideally, your best friend is a professional mountain biker, you don't need your iPhone 5, and you've got a psychedelic, rock n roll playlist ready to go. But regardless, the bottomline is to get out the door – oh, and maybe eat a CLIF Bar while you're at it. You're bound to work up an appetite, after all, following in Hunter and Shandro's footsteps (bike tracks).

And don't forget our own addition to the adventure checklist: Step 4: tell your friends at the Outbound all about it when you're back!
