One of my favorite adventure blogs is James Mills’ Joy Trip Project. I’ve written about James before (see adventure journalism). He’s a first rate journalist who has turned his talents to the world of outdoor adventure in a series of fascinating podcasts. I like to download mine on iTunes and listen in the car. Always an inspiration.
A perfect example is this newly released interview with high altitude skier and mountaineer, Hilaree O’Neill, who climbs with the Northface team. Not only is she a mother of two small boys (3 & 5) but this year she and her team tackled Everest and its sister peak Lotse in a single push!
It’s a great story, just click this podcast below.
SPOILER ALERT: My favorite question from James: Between motherhood and mountaineering, what’s the bigger challenge? Hilaree: “Motherhood.” Go figure.
