Adam Shoalts is an accomplished Canadian explorer with many big expeditions under his belt. He’s been a guest on my podcast (The Strenuous Life Podcast) multiple times, always with new, amazing stories.
In our most recent conversation he explained how mindset and mentality are MUCH much more important than gear for staying safe in the wilderness. He went into detail about how you should be an anti-adrenaline junkie when navigating large lakes, running difficult rapids, or dealing with dangerous situations in the bush.
