A bright spot in the middle of the winter doldrums, I drove over to Wright State University for their Adventure Summit. A chance postcard picked up at last year’s Buckeye Trailfest, I had never heard of this free event before.
Even Bigfoot made an appearance!
Schedule of Events
There were fitness classes, some competitions, and presentations Friday night and all day Saturday. There were enough interesting sounding topics that it was hard to pick what to attend!
My Three Favorite Presentations
Terry presented on having adventure, at any age, at any cost. She had recently done a challenge “30 Days of Crazy” where she had to do *something new* every day for thirty days. (In hind sight, she said she would give herself more than thirty days). This actually led to her writing a book about her “30 Days of Crazy”. Terry encourage all of us to get out and experience an adventure, no matter how small.
The next speaker was Richard, who biked East to West across the United States. Richard spoke extremely well, with a great self deprecating sense of humor. I picked up a few good tips for my bike touring.
My favorite talk was Hiking the Camino de Santiago.
This has become somewhat of an obsession with me lately-I should save that for another blog post! This married couple went on their Camino in 2017. They were great public speakers, and their room was packed! They should have moved their presentation to the main speaker room, but nobody probably knew the Camino was going to be such an attraction!
This was an all free presentation at Wright State University. I recommend that you check it out next year!
