Now married, they explore the UAE establishing new bouldering areas. Sara and Allen spoke with Jason one morning about the culture and ethics of the Middle East, the delicious sweets, the challenges of creating a guidebook, the joys of sharing climbing, and why Allen struggles to keep his shirt on.

G.O. 042 - Fundamentals of Nature with Jeannine Tidwell

Over a decade ago, Jeannine Tidwell and her husband moved to Sandpoint, Idaho on a path to fulfill a goal she formed as a young adult. They founded Twin Eagles Wilderness School, a place where students can connect with nature and their community while learning wilderness skills and becoming mentors for others. Jason and Jeannine met one rainy afternoon and discussed the history of the school, the philosophy behind its core tenets, and mankind’s relationship with the natural world.
