Now that Christmas Eve has arrived we’re getting ready to shut down both The Adventure Blog and Podcast for a few weeks in order to spend time with friends and family and do a little holiday traveling. But before we do that, we wanted to sneak in one last episode of the podcast for the year. This final episode — our 45th for 2019 — looks ahead to 2020, with my cohost Dave Adlard and I sharing our adventure resolutions for the year ahead. We both have five items on our list, with some focused on personal health and improvement, while others are more about expanding our adventure resumes, traveling to new places, and generally working towards being better human beings.
While this episode is an abbreviated one, we still take time to catch up on the latest adventure news. That includes updates on the expedition skiers in the Antarctic, the latest from Colin O’Brady’s Impossible Row, and new about the first winter mountaineers arriving in their respective Base Camps in the Himalaya and Karakoram. In the interest of keeping things short during the buys holiday season, we did cut out our gear segment this week, preferring instead to use that time to thank our listeners who have shown us a lot of love over the past couple of years that we’ve been doing the show.
As usual, you can listen to the full episode in the embedded audio player below. You’ll also find us on via Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Sticher, and Spotify, where you can subscribe to the show and catch ever episode as it’s released. Feedback can be sent our way through Facebook, Twitter, or email. We always appreciate getting feedback, questions, and thoughts on the show.
With the next episode not set to be released until after the New Year, let me take this opportunity to thank everyone who tunes in on a regular basis. It is much appreciated and we’re glad you like what you hear. More to come in 2020!
