As a nature lover and adventurer, it’s been disheartening to see what I feel are unrealistic images of the outdoor experience. The idea that the destination and the perfect selfie with the most picturesque background is the goal disappoints me and while I understand social media is a visual medium, I want a deeper connection to what I consume. As experienced as I am, it sometimes makes me forget that it’s the journey that matters. I’d like to create a resource for people who may not take (or want to take) the perfect picture of themselves to tout on social media. Some seek the conquest, I seek the peace that only being out in nature provides. I want a place where ideas, curiosity, and the anticipation of communing with outdoor experiences provides peace in a crazy world.
So I decided to build it. Let me explain the what’s, why’s, and how’s right now.
Blissful Adventures Was Designed for People Who Want to Explore Nature and Be Comfortable Doing So
For me, nothing is as satisfying as a challenging hike or a good day fishing on the lake. But it is the return to camp that offers comfort and rest. Finding the right gear to explore, spending a night or two or ten, and being prepared is my goal.
