Adventure Activism, Life Out Loud / 17.02.2014

Support the Joy Trip Project on Patreon from James Mills on Vimeo. When you're in the creative fields it's never easy to define exactly what it is that you do for a for living. But when you hope to get your friends and fans to support your work financially you really have to get down to it and clearly express what it is that you have to offer.  I’m a freelance journalist who specializes in telling stories about the business, art and culture of the sustainable active lifestyle.

    Adventure photographers and filmmakers give us a unique view of the world. And throughout his long career taking pictures and telling stories for major magazines Peter McBride has offered up an exciting perspective, most often from the air. When he was in his 20s he flew a World War I biplane called the Vickers Vimy from London to Cape Town to reenact the first time an airplane traveled across Africa in 1920. "I think that really gave me an interest in the aerial perspective," he said in an interview...

Adventure Media Review, In Memoria, Life Out Loud / 11.02.2014

Adventure Media Review, Film Review / 10.02.2014

Frigid cold weather has made it difficult to get outside and even the most active among us have to dig deep to well up enough motivation for a morning jog, a few kilometers of cross-country skiing or an afternoon of ice climbing. But just when you think you can’t stand another day of the bone numbing chill a...

Commentary, Travel / 26.01.2014

I love to fly, but I hate flying. And on this current round trip from Madison to Salt Lake City I really hate flying Frontier. Perhaps the anger I feel should be directed toward all airlines. For all I know the fucked up and frivolous fees they charge for the most basic travel amenities are common to United, Delta and the rest. But with every add-on purchase I’m inclined more and more to travel by car and high-speed rail can’t come fast enough. I’m prepared to take a fair...
