Author Walter “Yukon” Yates reminds us that everyday is an adventure.
If you feel like breaking away and need inspiration for adventure travel, read Walter "Yukon" Yates memoir, Breakaway.
Walter Yates, an octogenarian, details his lifetime of adventure, including how he survived the Alaskan wilderness for one year in isolation and survived a helicopter crash in British Columbia where he spent fourteen days injured, hungry, and waiting for rescue.
These accomplishments skim the surface of Mr. Yate's courageous life as an avid explorer, bush pilot, gold miner, airplane and airport builder, helicopter crash survivor, World War II veteran, documentary filmmaker, grizzly bear hostage, and all-around adventurer.
Which is all to say, if you want to live a long life like Mr. Yates, consider high spirited adventure travel!
And let's face it, if you want to chase clean air you've got to go remote, take risks, prepare yourself for adventures with inspired stories less you stay home nursing regrets over a cup of tea.
