kell_elizabeth91 Thought I'd be on the road to solo a 14er but you can't go anywhere with a broken car, such is life. In the meantime biking to climb it is #geshido 2d

jordanepton "We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future." - FDR

These are the guys - the mentors of the 2018 boys. Selfless, fearless. Devoting their energy to themselves, not just the Explorers - they want to grow and improve alongside our young men. They teach by doing the work, and portraying the behavior necessary to become a valuable addition to the people around them.
Truly inspiring people, very easy to be friends with, very smelly after 70 miles of biking. (Not pictured: myself, Justin Collett)

explore_austin 2018 Mentor, Jordan, has captured some amazing photos from their SWT! His captions however, are what really inspire us. Our Mentors are incredible people and take their role very seriously. Thank you for sharing these @jordanepton ・・・
This is the first post of my 2015 Summer Wilderness Trip (SWT) story session. I spent 5 glorious days biking nearly 70 miles up and downhill in Colorado with 12 of my Explorers, and 4 (out of 5) of the greatest guys I've met to date.

Pictured here: Tony, Pedro, Griv, and Seabass. Now sophomores in High School, I've gotten to see their stories change since 6th grade, and witness as they create their own outcomes.
By far the most physically demanding trip so far, but they all said it was the most rewarding. It's no secret that the biggest effort yields the highest reward - I'm just lucky enough to live it with this group.

tvjourney This is Chris, one of my favorite people on earth. Chris is thirsty. He is a devout Christian, a musician, an athlete, a student. He absolutely craves life experiences that will challenge him to evolve physically, mentally and emotionally. One of my 13 Explorers, he challenges me to be a better mentor, better man, better friend. Yet through everything, he doesn't take himself too seriously, and still makes time to just be a kid and get completely lost in laughter and play.
Thanks to all the Explorers for having this effect on all of us Mentors. Its really easy to get caught up in how super important we all think we are, trying to do too much with too little time. But really, life is just a ride, a fleeting shared experience. And in these moments of shared joy, pain and growth... Its really nice to slow it all down and just be a kid.

jordanepton Grocha and Danny using a flint to make a fire. On our first trip, these guys could barely set up a tent in an hour flat - now they're setting up tents and creating epic bonfires before the mentors set their tents up. A true demonstration of being #actionoriented.
One of our daily discussion topics was "perseverance"; relative in so many ways on this trip. The Explorers are showing their understanding of this concept more and more each year. Whether it's powering through challenges (like uphill riding with me wheezing behind) or learning to hold yourself back from single-handedly devouring a table of @willson_r's famous Mountain Migas to make sure everyone has gotten some, these guys are helping to show us how and when to be aware of our own perseverance. That fire was epic.

jordanepton This is just a sneak peak of the 2018 Boys Summer Wilderness Trip (SWT). Chris Lomeli and Gabriel Rocha (Grocha) - two iconic guys posing after our opening hike. This was our 4th SWT together, and the whole crew raised the bar again with another legendary performance - almost 70 miles in 5 days on borrowed bikes.
I hope I'm as good at sharing this experience as I was at enjoying it.
