Shouting from my Shed: Volume 12

Good afternoon!
There are quite a few themes that rattle regularly round my tiny adventurer’s mind. These include mortality and the pressure to get good stuff done before I die (nice cheerful start to the newsletter), the golden era of adventure (Nansen, Shipton et al), and the changing nature of adventure in this era of total mapping, global rescue, and permanent, instant communication.
All of these feature in David Roberts’ excellent new book which examines his personal relationship to extreme risk, Limits of the Known, (written as he battled cancer) which has spawned enough thoughts and ideas for this entire newsletter.

  • An Exciting Adventure Film: adventure in the 21st Century is not all doom and gloom and narcissism. You can still combine doing epic stuff with creating beautiful films and the best aspects of sharing vicarious expedition thrills. This multi-discipline expedition in Greenland looked blooming marvellous!

Enjoy the weekend!
