I still remember the days I went hiking with my father and brother – Strolling through the forest, foraging for firewood and roasting marshmallows by the campfire. Eventually, my brother started shying away from these activities, focusing more on his studies; but my interests in these outdoor activities kept growing.
My father was diagnosed with cancer and passed away when I was 11. After his passing, I joined the Scout Troop of the Boy Scouts of America in order to keep his memories alive. I went on several backpacking, camping and canoeing trips with my fellow scouts. Soon, I moved on from river canoeing to whitewater kayaking, and it’s all downhill from there (pun intended).
My love for extreme sports kept growing and by the age of 16, I had become an avid Traceur, Mountain Biker and Waterfall Kayaker. However, I was only at the beginning of my journey in Rock Climbing, Base Jumping and Skydiving. I still had many years of hard practice before me before I could consider myself as an expert.
Nowadays, I spend my time looking for more excitement and newer activities to get used to. And when I’m not Spelunking or Bungee Jumping, I’m writing reviews for different products, so that others could benefit from my experience and research.
