What is Adventuresome?
Being adventuresome is pursuing the adventure available in your life, both on a daily and one-time basis. I will use this blog to show you how to seek out that adventure, including different viewpoints and types of adventure, ways to finance your adventure, and the gear you will need.
If you want to see my goals for this website, take a gander at my manifesto.
Who I are:
[singlepic=5,320,240,,left]Hi, I’m Matthew and I have two great fears. Mediocrity & boredom. It terrifies me to think that I might spend my days working in some cubical or dead-end job that I don’t enjoy, just to pay the bills. Bills are highly over-rated, after all. I would rather support my family doing something that I love and spend my time seeking the adventure in my life. I want to help you do the same. I intend to use this blog not only assist you in your adventures, but to keep myself motivated, as well.
I am a full-time college student who is recently married. My wife is my co-adventurer and the light of my life. We continually drive each other forward. Neither of us are “average college students.” I am older than my fellow students, only returning to college after an 8 year break. We don’t drink or party. Yet our friends view us as some of the most exciting ones in our group.
I have been adventuring for nearly 30 years; trying new things, failing at some, succeeding at others. I started out camping and canoeing with my dad at a young age, soon venturing out on my own. Once I could drive my Jeep went everywhere it could (and some places I don’t think it was meant to go). Once my wife and I started dating, I began hiking more and we started backpacking. We quickly fell in love with backpacking and I started making some of our gear. Mountains have been climbed, rivers have been rafted and canoed.
Hopes & Dreams:
It is my hope that you look forward to this journey we are taking together. Helping each other we can further explore our lives, searching out the excitement and adventure within them. I want to help make your life fuller and more complete, and hope that you will do the same for me.
