While not the actual definition of tribe, I believe that tribes are a group of people, like a family, who share customs, interests, and maybe some common characteristics. I would certainly suggest that our outdoor family is a sort of tribe, with the goal of enjoying the outdoors, though not necessarily in the same fashion, goal, or enjoyment. That being said, there are uncountable stories to be shared, via virtual campfire, of people being active outdoors. My goal with Active Outdoors is to share those stories. My preference is to meet you, interview you, and then share your story with everyone else in the tribe, but I’m open to pretty much anything.
Some of you I’ll seek out, some stories will fall in my lap, others will raise their hands as volunteers.
Interested in participating?
For the guest post, write your story – where you started, what initially got you outdoors, and what you are doing now in the outdoors world (and I see that it’s a lot!). Add as many photos as you like.
For the video, please submit a short video (2-3 minutes preferred), and answer the same questions as above (where you started, what initially got you outdoors, and what you are doing now in the outdoors world).
I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out with this project – thanks!
