Ladies n' Genminminminmin (er, min...) look who I've gawn' n' snagged in my Zoom Hole for special Episode 100 of the Podcast!
Please welcome to "The Good Listening To" Clearing - Dave Cornthwaite, life-adventurer, explorer, film maker and creator/leader of the "YesTribe!" a community that like to "SayYesMore!"
"After realising my cat was way cooler than me I decided to make life better and say yes more!" which he did by developing a habit of embarking on long journeys without motors in a series of epic adventures called Expedition 1000.
"A journey of 1000 miles doesn't start with a single step it starts with an idea"
"Expedition 1000 a long-term quest to take on 25 journeys, each one a minimum of 1000 miles, each one using a different form of non-motorised transport".
15 journeys complete. 10 to go!
Adventures so far have included swimming the Missouri, skateboarding across Australia and tandem-riding from Vancouver to Las Vegas.
Dave is also owner & co-curator (along with his partner Em) of "Big Sky Hideaway" which is a wonderful place all about glamping, camping, alpacas and big skies in Bolton Lancashire.
And as he says in his opening line on his website at https://www.davecornthwaite.com
"BEGIN: If ever caught between 2 decisions always go for the one which makes for the best Story..."
Dave also has his own Podcast called "Self Propelled" which explores the drive, motivation and secrets of people who take the road less travelled.
An epic guest indeed!
