G.O. 005 - Dirtbagging with Nhung Luong

Nhung Luong is scared of bears, but not of traveling the world solo. Her global travels began as a newborn when her family struggled to escape persecution in Vietnam, ultimately finding a new home in Australia. Recently she threw herself into a three-month nomadic adventure across the united States letting fate and circumstance decide her course. Much of her trip has involved climbing throughout the states and adopting the dirtbag lifestyle. Although traveling solo, she has spent very little time alone having acquired new friends from across the globe. She and Jason initially met climbing in Nevada and reunited in Yosemite’s Camp 4 to discuss how her wanderings have affected her perspective on life.

G.O. 002 - Canyon Lessons and Klaus Gerhart

Klaus Gerhart wasn’t always active outdoors. There was a time when his primary exercise was operating a television remote. Several years ago he decided to journey outside and the course of his life changed drastically. The discovery of technical canyoneering ended any desire to return to a sedentary existence. A few years later he would be recognized as an expert in the field. He is the founder of Uber Adventures, a Los Angeles based training school and gear shop specializing in canyoneering. Jason joined him in his air-conditioned shop in heat-ridden Chatsworth to discuss what drew him to canyoneering and how it has impacted his life.
