Jason over at The Adventurist has been keeping himself plenty busy lately. Besides his normal duties over at his own site, he’s taken on the role of editor at for mountain climbing, extreme sports, and outdoor recreation over at Topix.com. He’s also kicked off his duties with a new column on that site called Adventure-X with the first article focusing on “Defining Ourselves Through What We Do”. The article takes a look at how we define “adventure” and how it shapes us as a person.
As if that weren’t enough, Jason has also put together an article on adventure racing for Adventure Sports Weekly. His article on getting started in adventure racing is a glimpse into some of the things you need to think about and be aware of when jumping into the wonderful world of AR, a sport that can be a bit dizzying at first. You have to consider training, in multiple disciplines no less, all the wonderful gear you’ll need, even for a Sprint race, and mix in good team dynamics, navigation, and more. It can be kind of overwhelming, but also very rewarding.
Finally, he’s also put together an article entitled Skiing From The Top the World for TopiaRoad.com a relatively new site focused on skiing and snowboarding, that looks to be just getting off the ground. Jason’s article discusses the prospects of skiing down Everest and other big peaks.
So there you have it. Plenty to read in those articles right there. Congratulations Jason, now I feel like a total underachiever. 😉
