This week on The Adventure Podcast we welcome adventure racing legend (and our friend!) Mike Kloser to the show. Mike worked with Dave and Kraig at Expedition Alaska a few years back, so they reminisce about that race, as well as several others that Mike participated in over the years. That includes the revived Eco-Challenge that took place last September, which he shares some insights on while we all await its arrival on Amazon Prime Video. Other topics of discussion include how he got started in endurance sports, Mike’s adventure travel company, and what it is like to ride mountain bikes with Lance Armstrong.
Prior to jumping into our interview, Dave and Kraig first get us up to speed on the latest adventure news. That includes an update on the Karakoram climbing season in Pakistan, a major archaeological find in Mexico, and a couple of unique dream jobs that outdoor adventurers are sure to want to apply for. Later, during our gear segment, both of the guys discuss their impressions of the VSSL survival kits, with Dave sharing his thoughts on the VSSL First Aid Kit, while Kraig checks out the VSSL Camp Supplies model.
