A lot has happened in just two short years. When we started our trust the trail podcast, we didn’t realize the connection we would make with our listeners. What a great feeling it is when one of our listeners sends an e-mail, or post’s a question, to us. It truly has been so much fun.
As most know, we have been teaching backpacking basics for a long time. So when we started offering it our our Podcast Community, (once again) we were so happy that you started coming out. Then we got really bold, and offered a few of our “guided trips” that we have been doing for over 6 years now to our listeners. How much were we blown away when one of you traveled across the country to go on our Okefenokee Swam Kayak Trip? Pretty blow away.
We had dinner this week with an old friend that has gone on some of our big adventure trips. (Grand Canyon being just one of them). He mentioned how much fun he had and that he misses going on trips with us. He had no idea about our Podcast’s. Reminded us how important it is to build a community, but keep the people (our friends) always close by. It’s just building a community but always staying in touch with them.
We have found and developed good friendships with so many people throughout the years just by taking them on a exciting adventure or a simple backpacking trip out in Nature. We always want to remember that as we keep evolving into our busy lives. It’s so important to keep it simple and always maintain those relationships that are so meaningful.
We are going to step up our game a little to keep putting trips together so we can foster new friendships and offer existing ones a chance to just get together for some good times on the trail. For us, we love teaching, and providing an amazing experience for others that want to get out in nature but need a little push. (nothing wrong with that at all) is just one of the things we can offer. Or a friend to assist them in the fear factor of doing it alone. That is what we love to provide our community, and we love it.
