Rules for Intrepid Living

Rule #60. Nothing beats a positive attitude. As you know, things never go exactly as planned. It’s the way of the world. Sometimes things just go wrong. It happens all the time. That’s just part of the deal, or as my friend Mike says, “it’s all part of the game.” So what do we do about it? How do we… Read more »

Can Every Day be an Adventure?

      No Comments on Can Every Day be an Adventure?

When it comes to our lives, we often see the adventures sprinkled amidst the day to day activities that come with adulthood;¬†working, paying bills, cooking and cleaning for example. These are things that we have to do to get by, so obviously not every single day of our lives can be an adventure, right? I don’t think of it that… Read more »

Mapping driving routes for an adventure

You may be wondering where the new Rule for Intrepid Living is today. After all, it’s Thursday, and that’s always RFIL day. Well, not today. Instead, I’m going to tell you what’s up with Intrepid Daily. You have notice, no doubt, that my posting has been rather erratic this summer. Let me just go on record right now apologizing for… Read more »

Rules for Intrepid Living

Rule #56. Reach. I recently took a part time job as something of a handyman. I’m helping to renovate a rental property, something I’ve never done before. I’m not afraid of tools, work, or getting dirty, but I’ve never had the opportunity to work on a construction project like this. I’ve always wanted to; I like working with my hands,… Read more »

Rule #55. Chase dreams. Are you happy? Like, really happy. Not just okay. Not just fine. I want to know if you’re happy. If so, way to go! Keep on keeping on. If not, well, it’s time to do something about it. Maybe it’s time to follow your dream. What’s your dream? As a kid, did you dream of becoming… Read more »

Real Adventurers have Day Jobs

I spent my life dreaming of adventure; aspiring to travel, try new things, and explore everywhere (and everything) that I could. The dream spoke to me, trying to guide my decisions, but like many would-be adventurers, I listened less and less over time. “Oh, I still want adventure,” I’d tell myself. “But it’ll have to wait until I finish college.”… Read more »

Rule #52. Time that you enjoy wasting isn’t always wasted time. When I started riding my bike to work, a few people asked me if I thought it was the most efficient use of my time. On the days I rode I spent about an hour riding to work compared to the fifteen or twenty minutes I’d spend driving. That… Read more »

Rule #51. Practice makes progress. In the course of our relationship, my wife Clarissa and I have learned a lot from one another. We’ve each exposed the other to different ideas and new ways of doing things. One of the things that I’ve picked up from her is yoga. She’s an avid yogi, teaches a number of classes online and… Read more »

Rules for Intrepid Living

Rule #50. It’s all part of the game. On the third day of the Great River Trail Trash Trek, as I hiked alongside highway 84, I grew more and more downtrodden. I hadn’t really slept the night before, I was carrying much more weight than I should have been, and the hot sun started to wear on me. Shortly after… Read more »

Rule #48. There is no “new you.” Every year, on January 1st, hundreds of thousands of people decide that they’re going to change. No longer will they be the same person they’ve always been. Oh no, not this year! This year (whatever year it may be) everything changes. We’ve even got a nice turn of phrase for it, “New year,… Read more »

Fitness, Friendship, & Fun: My Experience with Plan For Adventure

Plan for Adventure

It’s a few minutes before we get down to business. About ten of us are milling around, chit-chatting about work or looking at a chalkboard on the wall that holds today’s workout. We recognize the exercises, but not necessarily the formula for how the circuit works out. I shake out my legs and arms a bit. Then Mike shouts, “everybody… Read more »
