No Huddle Life: Episode 1: Hiking The Colorado Royal Arches at 60+ | 16 mins

I moved to Boulder, CO about a year ago. I was recovering from a physical thing. And hiking was my main form of physical therapy. Still is. The mountains are the greatest “health club” in the world – for beginners up to experts. But I met my match with Royal Arch Trail. Cut me some slack, as I wrongly call it Royal ARCHES in the video at least 5 times. And I can not seem to get my story straight on how many times I previously tried to reach the summit… (this last attempt was my third). It must have been the oxygen deprivation 🙂 This hike kicked my ass. If you're curious why I am such a glutton for punishment, read the No Huddle Life Manifesto here: http://bit.ly/2AX5TIa

No Huddle Life: Episode 2: Why EVERYONE Should Try Zip-Lining At Least Once! | 8 mins

I do not think this video conveys the extreme fear factor of my zip-lining adventure in the Rocky Mountains over the pines and roaring creek. It was my very first time. There are all sorts of panic when you leave a 65 ft.-high platform and fly through the air at 45 m.p.h. into the unknown. Plus, it was shivery cold. When the sun goes behind the mountain, the wind starts whipping through the canyon, a snow begins to fall, and you are screaming down the line—I was shaking for more reasons than one. I know you will notice the guides were running around in regular shirts and were so nonchalant about it all. But they do not count. There are people who are X-Games types and those that are not. I am not. But, rise above the fear I did. There is a total rush to overcoming something you consider dangerous. I suppose there is a real element of risk. But I am pretty sure the elation comes from winning over your personal obstacles. And yeah, I will be back! I checked out other zip-lining experiences on YouTube and there is a world of amazing adventure out there. That is what NoHuddle Life is all about. A huge shout out to Matt Espy over at the Colorado Adventure Center: https://www.raftingcolorado.com/

No Huddle Life: Episode 3: What Is the Meaning of No Huddle Life? | 8 mins

In this episode, the meaning of “No Huddle Life” is revealed. This YouTube channel’s name is deep with symbology. For me anyway 🙂 Somehow, the name ties the purposes together: A life wake-up call. Reinventing yourself. Conquering your bucket list of outdoor adventures and beyond. Living a longer, healthier, more fulfilling life. And having some just plain fun. Lemme know if this video does the trick and brings you an aha moment of what the !@#$ No Huddle Life means. I really didn’t mean to be esoteric! This YouTube channel is from the heart. Check out this book: Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley (https://amzn.to/2r5TfAx). Highly recommended. It was an inspiration to me in starting this channel. You will recognize parallels. Bottom line: it is much better to be active than sedentary.

Surviving Mann: Episode 9 | 45 mins

No Huddle Life: Episode 4: Indoor Rock Climbing at 60+ | 12 mins

I have always wanted to try indoor wall climbing. And thanks to Dave Hanson from Colorado Wilderness Rides & Guides and Movement Climbing + Fitness in Boulder, CO, I did just that! I started the adventure so cavalier. Brimming with confidence. That is until I got inside the facility and looked up at the walls. They were WAY higher than I had imagined they would be. And I was the oldest person there. All the other climbers looked like they were straight out of ad in Outside Magazine or something. Perfect physiques. My palms started sweating just taking in that vista. Somehow, probably because I had the film crew with me and I did not want to embarrass myself in front of my climbing coach, I got myself strapped in and went for it. You will see for yourself. It is not necessarily my best moment. But reaching the top of that indoor wall, even if not looking all that great doing it, was a big win for me. That is what NoHuddle Life is all about. Getting out of your comfort zone. Trying new, fun things. No matter what age you are or even if you are not in the best of shape (within reason, of course). I am definitely adding indoor climbing to my list of favorite adventure activities. And maybe even someday, taking it outside to the legendary climbing areas of Boulder, CO. Honestly, I have got a ways to go before I do that. I am working on getting my body to catch up to my adventurous spirit. Who is with me?

No Huddle Life: Episode 5: Newbie Humbly Learns Casting Basics | 10 mins

In this episode, I watch as the Colorado trout whisperer and master guide, Jack Bruner, makes a perfect cast and sets the hook, in one, zen-like moment. I then proceed to get my lesson in humility. I graduate to a fly-rod and reel and begin learning the basics of roll casting and back casting. An ah-ha moment is achieved. And fish are caught. But a realization is had. This highly addicting activity of fly-fishing is indeed a lifelong pursuit. Probably like golf, I imagine. You are not going to master it overnight. But once the sport gets under your skin, you will find yourself thinking about it a lot. Maybe too much. I have begun the journey. Many thanks to: Jack Brunner, master guide: https://coloradowildernessridesandgui… Black Mountain Ranch: https://blackmtnranch.com/ Quiet Kat: https://nohuddleshop.com/collections/ WetFly: https://nohuddleshop.com/collections/ Quiet Kat e-Bikes and trailer (highly recommended): http://bit.ly/2Dn6xP1
