It’s Never too Late: Stories to Get You to New Adventures

| |

Kenny and I call ourselves late bloomers. It seems as though we’ve started many new adventures later in life instead of attacking them head on when our bodies were young and supple. But, we’ve decided it’s never too late to try something new.

“You either get old or you die. We’re getting old and doing all the things while we do.”

April and Ken

So, even at 50, we are contemplating hiking the Colorado Trail (500 miles), hiking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal (a bit daunting), living in another country, and whatever else crosses our crazy minds. To us, it doesn’t matter the age; it only matters the desire.

So, grab your favorite beverage, your headphones, and head out on an adventure with us as we revel you with tales of starting new adventures later in life.

Tales such as a 77-year-old snowboarding for the first time. Or a 49-year-old beginner mountain biker attempting her first real ride. Or that first marathon-runner at 42. Or learning how to snowboard at 29. Or changing careers at 50.

Yes, you’ll get stories, but you’ll also get advice on how to find the gear you need without breaking the bank and how to learn something new, again, without breaking the bank.

It’s never too late to do all the things. Whatchya waiting for? Just do it.

“If you don’t do it this year, you’ll be one year older when you do.”

Warren Miller, world-renowned skier and filmmaker

Oh, the places we went and the beers we drank!

“Ken and April do a fantastic job of mixing the culture of beer and adventure into something akin to a fine barrel-aged sour. They are wise beyond their years. Loving this podcast and it will be on our weekly playlist for SURE!”
