G.O. 086 - Doubt on the West Coast Trail

In 2010, Jason and Steven Calcote embarked on the week long journey of hiking Vancouver Island’s beloved West Coast Trail. Four days of non-stop rain, swollen rivers, and numerous obstacles would create a seminal event in their outdoor experiences. This is their story of accepting hardship and chasing epiphanies.

G.O. 016 – Alden Anderson

G.O. 016 - Embracing Freedom With Alden Anderson

Alden Anderson had an atypical childhood. Communally raised in a sheltered religious order, his access to the outdoors and exploration—and secular society—were limited. At the age of 21, he broke his billion-year contract with his indoctrinated faith and began the transition into a standard American lifestyle. While learning to navigate adult responsibilities, he also embarked on an exploration of the outdoors and adventure. Alden and Jason crouched beneath a tree in a Tujunga park on Independence Day to discuss the eventful happenings on Alden’s quest to make the most of his personal freedom.
