About The Adventure Blog

The Adventure Blog is more than a website. We are a community of adrenaline enthusiasts who like to share wisdom and experiences. We like to write about everything from upcoming community events to reviewing professional grade gear and equipment.

The Adventure Blog was started in 2007 as a Blogspot and has morphed into a real site with a huge following and a social community full of some of the biggest names in climbing, hiking, exploring biking, traveling, and any other adventures!

Please use the search bar, and you can search through almost 13,000 articles and posts about various topics relating to the adventure world. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or opportunities.

We are REAL people, with REAL experiences to share. Any writers here are not simply hired guns from a content service; they are genuine adventure junkies who can write!
