Outside Announces Finalists For Adventure Grant

SubmissionSlideshow AdventureGrant 040312

In celebration for its 35th anniversary, Outside magazine is giving away a $10,000 adventure grant to help fund what it calls a “smart, creative, and (perhaps) slightly foolhardy endeavor.” Over the past few months they’ve solicited entries for the grant and now they’ve announced the five finalists on the Outside Facebook page.

The five finalist are certainly a diverse group. They include Daniel Alvarez, who hopes to paddle from Minnesota to Key West Florida; Quinn Langbauer and Mike Tassels Richard, who intend to cycle across Siberia; long disance hiker Ben Mayberry who will travel the American west on foot and pack raft; Ali Bayless and Hannah Bassett who want to sail the California coast in search of people with dream jobs and  Chase Berenson and Charla Hughes who dream of traveling the length of Thailand in a tuk-tuk.

Each of these is a unique adventure to say the least and all of them sound like fun. You can visit the Outside Facebook page to find out more about them and watch videos from the finalists. Then, cast your vote for the one that you think is most deserving. The winner will be awarded the grant!
