Best Bet: Rub Elbows with Adventurers


Need a nudge to pursue your passions? Stop by Battery 621 on May 28th, and you’ll get a triple-dose of inspiration. That’s when three nominees for 2013’s National Geographic Adventurer of the Year will talk about their cool and crazy exploits, and how to turn your heart’s desire into—yes—an actual career.

Hosted by ski mountaineer Chris Davenport (who skied all of Colorado’s Fourteeners in a year and himself embodies the “go for it” attitude), the discussion will detail other projects that didn’t seem doable—until these adventurers made them happen.


These outdoor superstars are coming together for a discussion event offered by National Geographic Adventure and The Business of Fun, a project founded by Ian Fohrman that showcases inspiring people on its website and brings them together for live, in-person hangouts. The goal? To “keep kids out of cubicles” (to quote the project’s tagline) and help people pursue work that’s rewarding—and fun.

Join the hangout by showing up at Battery621 at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28 (secure your spot by emailing or log on to stream it live: The Business of Fun and National Geographic’s Google+ channel (using the hashtag #BOFAdventure) will broadcast video coverage online.
