Like a Bigfoot Podcast #276: Bob Kauffman — Chasing Adventure, Bikepacking and Exploring

Bob Kauffman is literally in my phone contacts as “Bob Adventurer”.

Bob is an incredibly friendly and active guy who has found a lifelong passion for adventure and exploring! He also loves sharing his passion with anyone and everyone around him.

In this episode we talk about his various adventures climbing mountains, bikepacking and exploring the outdoors, including trekking to Everest Base Camp, tandem biking the Kokopelli Trail with his buddy Erik Weihenmayer, various bike packing routes, and taking on a little known route to cross Capital Reef National Park.

This was an extremely enjoyable conversation and I am honored to chat with Bob and proud that he slowed down enough on his mountain bike to let me keep up when we biked the 14 mile White Ranch Loop out near our town!

Enjoy!

Like a Bigfoot #275: Adam Shoalts 2 — “The Whisper on the Night Wind”, Expedition to the Wilds of Labrador

This week explorer, adventurer, and author Adam Shoalts sits down to talk about his expedition to the wilds of Labrador in search of a mysterious creature…

“Adam Shoalts is a professional explorer and best-selling author. In 2013, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society for “extraordinary contributions to geography” and in 2017 completed a nearly 4,000 km solo journey across Canada’s Arctic.”

Beyond that he is a person who deeply loves the outdoors and the act of exploration and discovery. He is also a geologist and historian deeply fascinated with the Canadian Wilderness and the history of the people who inhabited it.

In his latest book The Whisper on the Night Wind, Adam captures an expedition he took to solve a historic mystery:

“In the early 1900s, Traversepine, an isolated little settlement was the scene of an extraordinary haunting by large creatures none could identify. Strange tracks were found in the woods. Unearthly cries were heard in the night. Sled dogs went missing. Children reported being stalked by a terrifying grinning animal. Families slept with cabin doors barred and axes and guns at their bedsides.”

The book was a great read which you should check out if you’re into wilderness expeditions, history, or tales of mystery and intrigue!

Hope you all enjoyed the episode with Adam as much as I did!!
