OUTDOOR ADVENTURE EXPLORER POST 153

A UNIQUE EXPIRIENCE

We teamed up with Learning for Life’s national Explorer Post program to create a unique experience for 14-20yr old who desire to immerse themselves in outdoor, life, medical, rescue, and leadership skills. We spend time in weekly classroom meetings creating a baseline set of skills which they are able to apply in life, as well as when they are out in the field. Post 153’s design allows Explorers to push themselves physically and mentally to prepare for the challenges of the wilderness and life.

TAKE A BREATH

Your breath is powerful. It fuels you, it restores you, it cleanses you. Your breath is you incarnate. However, it is often the thing we short ourselves on. Especially, when there is the possibility that you could get very sick by breathing deeply out in the big world. We at Wilderness and Waves are big

FEET FLY FOR FREE

“How much further?” Annoyance flooded my soul when the most overused question ever uttered in adventure travel history broke my train of thought just as the sun started to set on the ridge ahead of us. Five years ago, I was driving on the backroads with my wife, and our two youngest boys (we have

MY LIFE, MY WIFE, AND MY MISTRESS…

I am not a cheater. My wife knows that. I am too stupid to get away with anything like that anyways. She does openly acknowledge the presence of my mistress, though. If fact, she insisted on calling her by that name. ‘My mistress’ is a lighthearted joking reference to my love affair with surfing. She
