My Passions and Addictions

I remember the very first time I ever went mountain biking. A friend gave me a 10 year old Walmart Mongoose bike for free.

True, this is an absolutely horrible bike for a true mountain biker, and It lasted me less than a month before it ate the derailleur within the spokes of the rear wheel, but I was absolutely hooked on the sport of Mountain Biking!

I bought a $250 upgraded, bells and whistles, Mongoose bike from Walmart again. This one lasted me two trips out on a trail before the bearings went out in the wheels. Once I began my quest into REAL mountain bikes, riding became a passion… and addiction.

Add this to the fact that I love to hike to places less traveled by others, climb shit that seems impossible, and getting my children out with geocaching, I make the argument I BELONG outside.

I like learning and practicing wilderness survival skills that could help me when stuck in the wild as well as basic first aid.

I love the other sports, but I live to ride! I dream about it when I am working as an Industrial Electrician and Project Manager. I think about it when I am lifting weights in the gym (keeps me fit and looking great).

All I need is a trail, a taco, and a beer, and I will be eternally happy.

Business from a Hobbie

Everything I do revolves around being outdoors, and I want others to experience it, so I started Achieving Adventure to:

  1. Share my love of the wilderness with you
  2. Help pay for my hobbies and trips
  3. Help you enjoy the same awesome stuff I enjoy.

Everything on this site, and the badass opportunities that I provide you, is centered on my professional desire to make your life more enjoyable by bringing beauty, adventure, and thrills to you directly.

I provide information and emails regularly to provide you with the knowledge needed to enjoy the outdoors. Use it freely and take your time, introducing yourself to the outdoors little-by-little. Take baby steps.
