I stumbled upon this blog about a fellow Chicagoan’s outdoor adventures. It is aptly titled, “Adventure From Chicago“. The blogger (who does not give his name in his blog) has traveled all over the world and lists many of his outdoor accomplishments such as skiing, mountaineering, rock climbing, sailing and more. It’s worth checking his blog out. It may inspire you to travel or even do some outdoor adventures as well!
Here is what he says about himself:
I love to have adventures – I’m an avid climber, sailor, mountain biker, hiker, road-tripper, international traveler… and on and on. I like to do cool stuff. And as much of it and as often as possible. Interesting and/or weird things happen to me fairly often, and I embrace them and think it’ll be fun to tell about them. I’m in an office most days – and can always use a break from work. Though in 2008 I managed to take twelve weeks off.
The highlights of what I have done are: traveled the world for 6.5 months, own a sailboat in Chicago, host bachelorette parties on my boat, have a successful business involved in trading and investing, climbed some major mountains in the Himalayas, Andes, the US, and Kilimanjaro in Africa, teach rock climbing part-time at a gym, kayak, ski, do triathlons, fish, surf, etc. If it’s fun or new or interesting or adventurous, I’m in.
Check out his blog here. Check out his great videos and pics of recent adventures!
