140 The Life of an Outdoor Guide

What’s it like guiding outdoor adventures? We discuss the pros and cons, the ups and downs, and ultimately what it takes to create the experience. As always, we throw in a bit of humor, sharing some highlighted failures when things don’t exactly go as planned…and yes of course there have been some pretty BIG DOOZIES. We answer some questions many of you have had over the past few years, and offer you an insider look at what it is like being an outdoor guide.
