This has been the most horrific year of training I have yet to experience. This is unfortunate to say the least, but the expedition is on hold till further notice. The objectives that were needed to be completed were not completed due to lack of preparation on my part. Corrections to training and diet are being made in preparation for next season. If you donated to our Go Fund Me and would like a refund please contact Alex Tufail. His contact information can be found on EPYC Adventures's website.

Thank you

Donation Update

We're working on updating the blog on a more regular basis to bring to you the most up to date coverage on military resources, and how these are progressing. Firstly I'd like to share all the donation pages we are working on, why we have so many, and how and who they affect.

First is the direct Go fund me
The money donated here goes directly to me and helps me pay for gear and supplies before the expedition, as well as keep me alive during the expedition to pay for food and in the event of severe weather a hotel/ hostile. I have already spent close to $35,000 out of pocket to fund this expedition between training, gear, and travel. It is becoming too much for me to handle on my own and I am asking for help to get the rest of the gear and to make sure I am going to be sustainable during the trip.

Second is for the DAV Chapter 16
This is my local Disabled American Veterans Chapter. A local 501(c)3 charity in Prescott, Arizona. They help Veterans who suffer from any disability fi…

Exploring The Outdoors

Image
For my peers and myself the natural world is inviting and exciting. We have the ability to push our limits and surpass the limitations of what we thought we were capable of. Maybe it's spending an extra night at a campsite, or hiking an additional mile. Progress is made by going pushing past our comfort zones, and stepping into a new level of self understanding and perhaps even a new level of self appreciation. When we can see ourselves in a new light then we can see how to better treat ourselves. Maybe next time we won't drink that soda because we want a full nights rest to be able to feel energized to hike a newly discovered trail. Perhaps we'll stop consuming harmful products and take better care of ourselves so we can fully envelop ourselves into an experience that we once weren't  capable of enjoying as much because our mental and physical status was thwarted by junk.
For Some people getting out and exploring can be as simple as just going for a walk in a new sp…
