What is Adventure Strong all about?
Exploring the World, One Trail at a Time
Adventure Strong is a hiking and adventure travel blog. So, if you love hiking or backpacking, you’re in the right place!
More broadly, Adventure Strong is about living life actively – not passively. It is about getting off the couch and into life – seeking adventure, exploring the world and pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone.
We only have one life to live so why not make it an amazing adventure?
Sound risky? Good.
“It is impossible to win the great prizes of life without running risks…” – Theodore Roosevelt
Who is behind Adventure Strong?
Hi, I’m Tim Moon. I live for hiking and adventure.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest where exploring and appreciating nature is our way of life (along with socializing in coffee shops or over delicious brew – Widmer Hef or McMenamin’s Ruby, anyone?).
As part of my Quest for Adventure, I accomplished my goal of living abroad by spending a year teaching English in Korea where I went hiking, of course! Where will I go next?
EDIT (2019): China was the next country I traveled to and spent 3 years teaching English to adorable first graders.
When I’m not on trail, I’m probably
playing with my dog or(RIP!) writing fiction. My first book, called DEAD APOCALYPSE (Necrose Series Book One), was written while I lived in South Korea. I have since written more than a dozen novels, novellas and short stories. You can find my books on Amazon.
