While I was a kid my mom was a competitive open-water swimmer (I grew up in Minnesota where lake's certainly out number swimming pools), I played soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, rode bikes, skied, snowboarded, fell off of skateboards. Now my mom is a ski instructor, I've had some years racing bicycles and rock climbing in the mountains. I've learned from my mom that you learn to live by pushing yourself in the outdoors. So that's the thread topic: Adventure Learning, lessons from pushing yourself in the outdoors.
