These Women Know the Importance of Adventure

5 Inspiring Quotes from Adventurous Women

I've gathered 5 of my favorite quotes from women adventurers. I love these quotes not only because the women that said them accomplished amazing things, but because these women have inspired me to always remember to live adventurously. So next time you start to feel like you need a little more adventure in your life remember these quotes and get out there!

 

 

1. Amelia Earhart on Adventure

I love this quote so much. Most of our adventures will never bring us fame like Amelia Earhart, but she reminds us that each adventure however small is still worth it, even if no one else was there. 

"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." - Amelia Earhart

"Adventure is worthwhile in itself." - Amelia Earhart

 

 

2. Nancy Newhall on Wisdom

Nancy Newhall might be best known for writing the captions accompanying many of Ansel Adams iconic landscape photographs. Her words below always reminds me that I need nature and wilderness in my life more than I know.

"The wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned to ask."  - Nancy Newhall

"The wilderness holds answers to questions man has not yet learned to ask."  - Nancy Newhall

 

 

3. Helen Keller on the Earth Underfoot

Helen Keller's accomplishments are impressive, even more so because she was deaf and blind. The next time you encounter a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass while hiking I encourage you to take off your boots and socks and feel what Helen Keller was talking about. 

"To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug." -Helen Keller

"To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug." -Helen Keller

 

 

4. Ruth P. Freedman on Living 

Great adventures often start on either a dare from a friend or when you dare to do something new and unknown. So next time you're dared to hike further or explore farther dare to go for it. Just don't do anything too crazy and stay safe out there. 

"Only those who dare, truly live." - Ruth P. Freedman

"Only those who dare, truly live." - Ruth P. Freedman

 

 

5. Diane Ackerman on Living Wide

Diane Ackerman is an author and naturalist with many inspiring works. I love this quote because it reminds me to plan adventures and get things done. None of us know how long we have, so make everyday wide with adventures. 

"I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” -Diane Ackerman

"I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.” -Diane Ackerman

The Cold Natured Adventurer’s Guide to Hiking and Backpacking

by Erin Gautier August 14, 2018 3 Comments

Chill bumps bristled on my arms. Gazing out over snow-tipped peaks, I felt torn. After hiking one of my first of Colorado’s 14ers, I wanted to remain in the breathtaking landscape surrounding me. I had entered another world, one that only existed above the clouds. I longed to linger there, but I was growing colder and colder with every breath. My mind clung to the chill as I shivered. It was summer. While others sported short sleeves and light jackets, I was swimming in multiple layers with gloves, a Buff, and ear warmers all haphazardly pulled on, looking like the whip cream and a cherry atop an icy sundae.

3D printing brings endless possibilities for MYOG and ultralight backpacking enthusiasts. If you have the skills you can create your own gear, or you can search online for open-source designs that are ready to print. 3d printing can also be useful for repairing and extending the life of your gear - think replacement buckles, new nobs for your old stove etc. If you don't have your own 3D printer you can have designs printed with online services, students can often print designs at school, and many cities have maker communities where you can rent time on 3D printers.
