Road Wisdom: Do Something Now

On March 5th and 6th we attended the Five Rivers Metro Parks Adventure Summit in Dayton, OH. The Adventure Summit is an event celebrating the spirit of outdoor adventure by showcasing the vibrant lifestyle and culture of human powered endeavors through inspiration, education, and experience. And inspired we were! The keynote speaker Charlie Engle captivated the audience by expanding upon his simple motto “Do Something Now!”

Charlie Engle is an elite adventurer who has pushes himself beyond his limits. In 2007, he challenged himself to run across the entirety of the Sahara Desert- a 4600 mile expedition. His experience was captured in the documentary “Running the Sahara”. At the Adventure Summit, he spoke about this experience and the difference it made in his life. His motto “Do Something Now” reminded us to take action in our lives. Whether we challenge ourselves to try an adventure race, a new outdoor activity, or make a difference in your community, we can all do something now!

One of the perks of our job as Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainers is attending events where amazing people come to speak. We get the opportunity to learn and experience from some of the best in the outdoor industry. We are continuously inspired and rejuvenated by the energy of these people. With Spring right around the corner, we encourage you to step up to the challenge, where ever the road may take you!

Happy Adventuring,

Kate and Tracy
