We’re back with another episode of The Adventure Podcast this week, with our attention turning to the holidays ahead. We know that a lot of you are probably searching for the perfect gift to get the outdoor adventurer in your life, so my co-host Dave Adlard and I are here to help. We offer some suggestions on what to buy the man or woman who already has everything, sharing some of our favorite gear items across a variety of price points.
But before we jump into that topic, we first talk about the latest adventure news with an update on a number of stories we’ve been following in recent weeks. First we catch up with Eric Larsen and his attempt to set a speed record going to the South Pole, as well as the latest from Ben Lecomte’s swim across the Pacific. We also update you on plans for a winter commercial expedition to Everest, a solo-hiker’s plans to trek across Death Valley, and what Patagonia is doing with its $10 million tax cut.
As usual, you’ll find this episode embedded in this blog post below, allowing you to listen straight from your browser. You can also download and subscribe to the show on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, or Spotify.
