I learned a lot about coffee in this latest episode with Sam Higby, an outdoor adventurer and part-owner of First Ascent Coffee. He reminds us that coffee is more than just a beverage that gets us going each day. It is something that engages all the senses, a transcendent experience.

Sam takes us on his coffee journey which landed him in the outdoor paradise called Crested Butte. There, he works alongside his business partners Mark and Allison Drucker, to bring delicious coffee to the world. One exciting thing from this episode is the story of First Ascent's instant coffee. Skeptical? I was too until I had some…I can’t wait to take it on my next adventure!

I’m glad to report that there’s still toilet paper in British Columbia. This comes from my friend and very adventurous Mountain bike skills coach Sylvie Allen. I’ve known her since 2015 when I traveled up north to shootfor a Big Mountain Bike Adventures Trip. As some of you know the terrain there can be quite intimidating on the first trip there - especially the steep slabs. Sylvie taught me a few tricks that made the trip and have served me well ever since.
