March marks Women's History Month and Midland Radio is a proud partner of women in adventure.
To celebrate the strong, fierce, and passionate women we work with, we've compiled a list of the "Top Women in Adventure" to follow on Instagram.
We also asked them, "What does being a woman in adventure mean to you?"
"Being a woman in adventure means knowing I am alive and living life to its fullest capacity. "
"Being a woman in adventure to me means, craving new experiences and facing each experience head on regardless of the outcome. Which luckily, in the mountains, every day, every path, every step is a new adventure."
“Being an adventurous woman has many meanings to me. It is who I am. I am not afraid to put myself out there and do things you may not typically see women do. I was raised by a very resilient mother who taught me that there was not anything that I could not accomplish with hard work and dedication. I am fortunate enough to live each day as if it is my last adventure, either in the woods or on the water. I am spontaneous. You never know where I may be.“
"It is my passion, my heart, and my happiness. Being in this space has changed my life in so many positive ways, both mentally and physically. I find as a woman out there it's important to inspire and encourage others in an organic way to get outside for their health and happiness. It’s vital to share the realism, the challenges, the achievements, and much more with young woman looking to get into solo outdoor adventures. We sometimes have fears, however, the outdoor community is so welcoming and encouraging, making it a safe place for all. It has been so incredibly rewarding to be able to inspire others, showing that you can truly do anything you put your mind to."
"What does being a woman in adventure mean to me....it means that we can do it too! I love getting outdoors, getting dirty, and exploring the backroads and all this earth has to offer. Learning my way in this industry has brought me more confidence as I tackle new obstacles, each trail I concur. It's taught me that I am much more capable than I gave myself credit for. I never knew how much there was to explore until my Jeep took me where most can’t go and it just makes me crave more! I am definitely not a girl who is afraid to get her hands dirty which means enjoying the adventure to its fullest potential!"
"To be a woman in adventure means you are completely vulnerable to all that is around you. You must be accepting of all that nature provides. You must take the bad with the good. You must be willing to break when you need to break and be strong when you need to be strong. Being a woman in adventure means you must show emotions on all levels to enjoy what this world has provided us for free. It is sometimes uncomfortable yet so freeing to face your fears head on."
"Adventure? Absolutely! I love the wild places, dirt roads, and endless horizons more than anything in the world. Living in adventure is about living your dreams, pushing comfort zones, making friends, inspiring others, and having an amazing time along the way!"
"I call off-roading “dirt therapy”. It invigorates me to get out there, in the beauty of nature, especially with my kids! Unplugged, playing in the mountains, climbing trees and rocks, and seeing such beautiful places! I’m so thankful for the adventures we get to take!
"It means rising to the challenge no matter how big , how messy or how small . It means showing my son that everything we set our minds to is attainable and to never get too busy to slow down and enjoy the great outdoors with friends!"
"Being a woman in adventure means getting to experience the unknown. I've always felt at home when I'm pushing myself to step out of my comfort zone."
