Hello everyone. Welcome back for another episode of the Outdoor Adventure Series Podcast. This is your Host, Howard Fox.
The Outdoor Adventure Series celebrates individuals & families, businesses, and organizations that seek out and promote the exploration, and enjoyment of the great outdoors.
Our guest today is Ryan McMahon.
Ryan McMahon is the Founder of Elite Custom Adventures. I was introduced to Ryan by Chez Chesak, Executive Director of the Outdoor Writers Association of America – https://owaa.org
Ryan and his team at Elite Custom Adventures here in Las Vegas, specializes in creating experiences for their clients that they’ll remember for a lifetime.
ECA’s adventures include Las Vegas Day Trips & National Park Experiences.
ECA works with individuals, Corporate, and International Clients,
ECA National Park Scholarship
ECA provides a scholarship to a family of up to 6 who:
Have never experienced a national park,
Would not be able to afford the experience otherwise,
Are members of a traditionally underserved population, and
Who do good for others.
A quote that jumps out to me is one that I’ve been a fan of since high school. I believe it was attributed to Einstein, and its, great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. When you want to pursue spending time in the outdoors and doing multi-site Section Hikes, or maybe going and hiking the Appalachian trail, or starting a travel business during a pandemic, a lot of people will tell you you’re crazy, or that’s not a great idea, or maybe you should have a backup plan or things along those lines., but I think a lot of times that people who have that drive and want to achieve. Sometimes you got to make the leap and don’t be afraid of it.
