The theme of Issue Two is Grounded. Inside our contributors are exploring topics that everyone is talking about—such as substance-free experiences, to dealing with depression, to creating sacred and safe spaces—but often these conversations are whispers that are drowned out by a much larger and louder narrative that has become a pillar in the outdoors. Après following a day on the slopes and beers at the tailgate after a long ride. Summiting peaks, going big, and getting rad.

If that’s how you do the outdoors, you keep doing you. But if there is anything that we’ve learned over the years, it is that people experience the outdoors in very different ways. Those differences are not only stark and recognizable, they are valuable. They are helping to expand the perception of who plays in the outdoors, and why, and even what constitutes an outdoor experience.

Beyond exploring how we can become emotionally grounded by creating intentional spaces in the outdoors and talking about issues that have been incredibly stigmatized in our society, we also are examining the literal earth, from biodynamic farming to how we have created the concept of wilderness.
