My Adventure Hub presents how to become an adventurer in your spare time. Listen to tales from working people who have planned and gone on epic adventures, while feasting on grasshoppers and Scottish wine!
Lucy Shepherd an 'unlikely adventurer', is anything but. Find her in the depths of the Arctic, jungles or high altitude peaks - Lucy has done some extraordinary things. She's off to Tajikistan on a climbing expedition this year and we hear is looking for people to join her in the Arctic next year. More about Lucy here.
Sam Norman aged just 22 took a team of three down 2231 miles down the length of the Mississippi River. For one of the team, he had not been in a kayak for longer than 4 hours! 80 days of sweltering heat and mosquitos later, the guys navigated terrifyingly big boats and dams to finish in the Gulf of Mexico alive and in awe of the hospitality from locals.
To fuel your appetite, we shall be supplying edible grasshoppers, crickets and buffalo worms. And for the vegetarian amongst you organic tempeh.
Scottish wine exists? It sure does, come and have some. Normal drinks and nibbles also provided.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start. Stick around afterward to have a chat with our speakers and a drink on us in the pub opposite.
