The Adventure Begins

Welcome to the first ever Adventure Core Blog! Kyle Larkin, a good friend of mine, and I have created this page to help inspire adventure in other people. It has been a kind of dream or aspiration of ours for some time now. To do the thing we love and share it with others, so that we can create a sort of community based company that has really reliable information as well as gear. In the long run our idea is to make this website a place that brings together like minded people that love getting into the unknown and exploring.

The Adventure Core itself is meant to be more of a movement than a business. That being said I’ve spoken with several people to help me get blogs like this posted every single day. That might sound like a lot of work and it is, but the beauty of this is that we get to see through the eyes of other people. People just like us, those who have gone out and experienced things, things that we ourselves will never get to experience. Having these blogs every single day will be a way that we can escape our lives and see how other people see. To experience what they have experienced, to learn what they have learned and become better ourselves through the newly gained knowledge.

It has been my own experience that going on a good adventure is a fantastic way to get to learn things you’ve never known. I’ve talked about it before on my Facebook posts and various other places, but in case you’ve never met me, I love adventuring. And to me, adventuring doesn’t mean you have to be out in the wilderness and eating live rabbits. Because that’s gross, and I hope I never have to do that. Adventuring is so much more, it’s going out of your comfort zone.

When you leave your comfort zone that is when you truly start to grow. You start to see things from a different perspective and it’s honestly quite amazing, and that’s the purpose of this whole thing. You can get on this blog, get excited with the authors and feel their emotions. As you read their stories you can, in a sense, experience what they did, through them. To me that is something so amazing, and so cool, and there is not enough of that in the world, so that’s what I’m aiming for with this blog. I’m not looking for anything super crazy, rather, just a glimpse into the minds of other people. A glimpse of knowledge, per say.

If you’ve been on the homepage you’ve already seen the words “Adventure is Life” and that is our motto. It’s all about getting out of your comfort zone, getting to a place where you can learn more, where you can grow, and you can experience more. Life is a wonderful amazing thing, there are hard times, and I expect that some of these blogs are going to be about that. I’d advise everyone to get involved, be a part of these blogs, and if you ever feel so inclined we’d love to have you share with us. Feel free to send us an e-mail with a picture of yourself and what your story is.

We would love to share your story with everybody. You never know when your thoughts and experiences can help other people. It may be 10 years down the road. That’s one of the great things about this, it has the potential to help people for years and years to come. So don’t hesitate to send out your story. I can not wait to get this started and I’m excited to see where this will all go!

Thank you for being a part of this!
