There has been a longing in me that recently was awakened by talking with a number of awesome men who have helped breathe a new sense of adventure into my heart. We must stop using the excuse of having kids and a mortgage to hold us back from a life filled with adventure. I want to share their stories (and more) with you, along with weekly challenges with your friends and family! I want to encourage you to live adventurously every day through a mix of casual, critical, and crucial adventures.

I’m fired up for life!
Dan has a way of bringing excitement to everyday life that’s really rare. This podcast is a great reminder of what’s possible. After listening to a few episodes, I feel like I have permission to go adventure, permission I didn’t even realize I was longing for. Thanks, Dan!
I'm just a fan of Dan Zehner in general, so when I heard about this podcast I had to subscribe. Dan is inspirational in the example that he sets for other men, especially dads, and I've benefited greatly from his wisdom. This podcast is destined to be great if the first few episodes are any indication.
Dan sparks excitement from the very first notes of the opening, and keeps the adrenaline going through the stories and dreams of adventures he shares. His passion and personality burst through the podcast - literally setting the wheels of my mind in motion - “What adventure can I do today”? Great stories & great excitement throughout!!
