G.O. 034 - Kat & Craig on Lucky Breaks, Pics, Sticks, and Hitches

Kat Carney and Craig Kinsley have embraced a life of coincidences and (occasionally literal) lucky breaks. A broken hand lead Craig down an unexpected path that would bring him to the 2012 Olympics as a Javelin Thrower. A part-time job as a newspaper reporter ignited Kat’s pursuit of photography and varied experiences. Seasonal jobs away from home brought the two together in Alaska where they would become a couple. Now they are preparing to move into a Suburban and travel the U.S. Jason met them in San Diego where they reminisced about past hitchhiking adventures, recent sandboarding experiences, and their respective passions.

G.O. 030 - Alex Staniforth's Everest Dreams

As an unassuming bullied epileptic with no interest in sports, Alex Staniforth never pictured himself as an athlete. A hill-walking trip at 13 changed his perspective and encouraged him to confront his fears. His quest to climb Mount Everest transformed him physically, mentally, and socially. At the age of 20, Alex is now an endurance adventurer, motivational speaker, charity fundraiser, and published author. He and Jason spoke via Skype about his path to the outdoors, his attempts on Everest during two tragic seasons, and surviving an avalanche.

G.O. 027 - Shawnte Salabert, Human Yogi Bear

Shawnte Salabert was raised on the mean streets of Milwaukie where a local Boys and Girls Club introduced her to the outdoors. Her newfound love of camp and adventure led her away from Wisconsin as she sought the secrets of becoming Yogi Bear in human form. Eventually, she stumbled into Los Angeles where her snark landed her a side gig writing for Modern Hiker when she isn’t hiking or drooling over Mark Ruffalo. Jason and Little Shay Shay tried to stay on topic one night in Silverlake Meadow as they discussed her life and mocked each other.
