Wow, thank you to everyone who commented on the two-year anniversary of The Dirtbag Diaries. I too think Fitz has created something really special and it warms my heart to know there are so many of you out there who feel the same way. Your outpouring of support means a lot, really. Here's Fitz with the beta on today's new podcast:
Today’s episode has it all. Steep descents. A battle to save South America’s pristine rivers. Backyard adventure. Eye candy. Photographers and activists Brian Mohr and Emily Johnson present stories and photos from wild ski terrain and their struggle to become a piece of the conservation puzzle rather than a cog in the problem. If adventure is the reflection of the human spirit, do we need to travel half a world away to find it in distant ranges, wild rivers and unpaved roads? And if the very act of traveling harms the places you hold dear, is going justifiable? The answers to those head jarring questions don’t always come easy.
