What does “Sole Adventure” mean?

What is a sole? Well, in one sense,  a sole is a part of a shoe, right? “Sole” can also be defined as “being the only one” or “functioning on independent power”. Finally, for me, “sole” is a word play on “soul”. These three aspects of “sole” are critical to what Sole Adventure is.

A sole adventure is about being outdoors, exploring on foot. It is about discovering nature and wilderness. It is about finding new places and experiencing open spaces. A sole adventure is also about leaving the comforts of my daily life and pushing myself to do something on my own. Finally, a sole (soul) adventure is where I rediscover who I am, and why I am here.

    My son and I are doing our first DIY Elk hunt this fall in southern CO with a good friend of mine. Ironically, same week you guys had success last year. Your site has answered many of the million questions I had about this adventure and I am so appreciative for you sharing all of this. Truly invaluable information and boatloads of it! Thank you, thank you
