The past few days have been a flurry of catching up on assignments, meetings with Eddie Bauer and SylvanSport, and getting geared up and ready to hit the road. It’s hard to believe that this project is finally underway, and I couldn’t be happier to begin the adventure in Asheville where the magazine’s second office is located. It’s been raining off and on since I arrived in town on Sunday, but the stormy clouds can’t dampen the energy that’s been building around the Live Outside and Play project. I am excited, humbled, and forever grateful for all of the support that readers, friends, sponsors, and strangers near and far have shown. You are what this adventure is all about.
I’m sure there are a lot of questions about Live Outside and Play, so expect some insights to be posted as the week progresses. For now, check out this short wrap-up of the past 48 hours. You can also head to the project’s social media handles and follow along as I embark on my yearlong adventure throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. Until then, here’s to where the path may lead!
