Our Wildway Crew highlights ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Within each of us lies the potential to live life to the fullest. We have the ability to choose our own destiny, live without fear or limits, challenge ourselves and grow, do and be whatever makes us happy. We have the ability to be free. It's how you live a Wildway of life and there are people all around us inspiring others with their actions. We want to celebrate that by highlighting and honoring those who #LiveWild. (More on that here)
Meet this week's featured Wildway Crew member:
Wildway of Life = Adventure in the great, big, unpredictable outdoors. Whether it involves rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, ice climbing, or just sitting in the grass, I am happiest when I'm surrounded by nature.
Outlook = " Feel the fear, and do it anyway." I have long lived by this motto whether it be planning a solo trip to Indonesia, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, or jumping off a 30 foot waterfall.
Meet Kelly. She is literally the definition of adventure. Her pictures say it all, but the depth behind those images is even more beautiful. See for yourself...
Here is Kelly's Story in her own words:
"My Wildway of life is adventure in the great, big, unpredictable outdoors. Whether it involves rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, ice climbing, or just sitting in the grass, I am happiest when I'm surrounded by nature. Time slows, and there are no distractions from technology. Sometimes I just can't believe how lucky I am to live on such a beautiful planet. It is my medicine when I'm at my worst- a reset button for my soul.
I have always had an insatiable fascination with all things living, from the tiniest insect to the giant redwoods in California. My mother raised me on the belief that each life is precious- every plant, animal, or insect had its own unique story. If we killed a scorpion, we said, "I'm sorry." If we took a snipping of basil to cook dinner, we said "Thank you." I learned to appreciate our symbiotic relationship. As I became an adult, my curiosity grew into a yearning for more adventure in the great outdoors. I learned that I am most myself when I'm pushing my limits outside. Traveling, rock climbing, and mountaineering became a passion, which I've carried with me through college, medical school, and into my professional life.
'I don't want a never ending life. I just want to be alive while I'm here.' -The Strumbellas"
Live Wild. Adventure Wild.
