I posted about this last week, but I wanted to remind everyone that National Geographic will be hosting a Google Hangout tomorrow with five of its 2014 Adventurers of the Year. That means, that through the use of modern technology, we’ll all get the chance to attend a virtual meeting with some pretty impressive people.
Amongst those scheduled to be in attendance at the hangout are ultrarunner Kilian Jornet, surfer Greg Long, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, snowboarder Kevin Pearce and explorer Sarah Marquis. Climber, storyteller and adventure filmmaker Fitz Cahall, who did the individual pieces on the Adventurers for Nat Geo, will also be in attendance.
The Google Hangout will take place from 1-2 PM Eastern Standard Time tomorrow. Questions for the group can be submitted through all the usual social media outlets, including Twitter, Google+ and Facebook using the hashtag #AdvOfYearChat. If there is something you’d like to ask these folks, it is best to get your questions in ahead of time so they can be reviewed and asked during the online meeting.
And as always, don’t forget to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Adventurer of the Year. Voting will run through the end of January. I know who I’d like to see win, but we’ll just have to wait until the winner is announced in February.
