Closing the Outdoor Knowledge Gap

@ 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

@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

"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.

PKN Providence in the News

Last week's PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 16 gets a rather nice recap thanks to this piece from The Providence Phoenix, and you gotta love a title like this: "Human contact is at the heart of PechaKucha." And how's this for a venue: The setting was perfect: outdoors at the Steel Yard, on the city's West side, on a clear summer night, with free wine and beer, a Haven Brothers truck, and big, spectacular art all around — from a sculpture made of bicycle parts to the Flower Tower, a 10-foot pyramid of plants.

Urban Visionaries at PKN Auckland

Alongside regular Silo Markets and other events, Silo Park will continue to host the largest, free outdoor cinema each week over summer on a Friday evening.

Coming soon!

Something new is heading to Basingstoke! Adam "The Geocaching Guy" has been to a number of Pecha Kucha events, and when he relocated to Basingstoke from Coventry he thought what better than to start running events in the area as a way to learn about the local community and get to meet some new contacts and friends. He has a passion for walking and the outdoors, and loves sharing his adventures and pictures. Currently looking at venues that may be suitable to host a PK event in the area. Fancy helping run an event, perhaps you would like to be a speaker? Follow us on twitter @pkbasingstoke, or find our FB page.
