Closing the Outdoor Knowledge Gap
BY DAVID STEELE
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 01, 2018
For those who grow up in the outdoors, it comes easy. It is much easier to be a competent skiier, or climber, or adventurer if you come at it from an early age. Yet contrary to popular belief, David Steele shows that old dogs CAN learn new tricks. The great benefit to a person trying something new is people who have been on that path before themselves. David shows that life can be challangeing and exciting for all of us at all stages of the journey, no matter if you are a cohort, a mentor, or an up-and-comer.
Adversity, Adventure and the Outdoors
"Adding insult to injury" is thankfully a phrase Rob Conte is unfamiliar with. Oh, he's had injuries: between his work life as a wildland firefighter and river guide, and his pastimes of mountian biking and snowboarding, injuries pretty much come with the territory. But Rob usually does not have to deal with the "insults", as his close network of family and friends supported him every step of the way as they "played through the pain" together.

Something new is heading to Basingstoke!
