Our family has adopted an approach to modern life that builds adventure into life’s trajectory. We call it the Adventure Possible Life.
In a traditional life, an average person spends the first twenty five years of their life learning through school or trade. The person then spends forty years working with the goal of saving enough money to retire at sixty five. At which time, they hope to enjoy some fifteen years of retirement before venturing into the everlasting unknown.
We modify life’s traditional arc.
The Adventure Possible Life borrows five years from retirement, dispersing those years in one year blocks about every seven years throughout the typical working years.
As a result, we create five or so distinct opportunities for adventure.
We work hard for about seven years, advancing career, making money, and saving money.
For those working years, we thrive, driving professional success while dreaming and planning the next adventure.
The adventure can be whatever desired. It’s personal. Backpacking. Cycling. Paddling. A sabbatical in a foreign country. Teaching entrepreneurship in a developing economy. RV’ing America. It doesn’t have to be dangerous, unconquered, far away, or even last a full year, as long as we get into the adventure mentality by pushing ourselves into new experiences.
Keep in mind. The Adventure Possible approach to modern life is not absolute. It is instead a model that enables you to build your own approach and plans for living a life of adventure.
At AdventurePossible.com, we focus on the experiences and practicalities of living the Adventure Possible Life. Planning adventure. Making Money. Saving Money. Exiting and entering the workforce. We focus on these practical topics so that you can apply them to the Adventure Possible model.
Let us bring you adventure every day.

Who is the Adventure Possible life meant for?
The Adventure Possible Life is for would-be adventures who find that their adventure dreams are suppressed by everyday responsibilities related to work, finance, and family.
The Adventure Possible concept emerged out of our own necessity to balance ambitions for having successful professional careers, building wealth, having a happy and healthy family, and embarking on epic adventures.
We often found these ambitions to be in conflict with one another. As career and family progressed, excuses and concerns about money, timing, and family smothered adventure travel dreams.
The Adventure Possible life helps make adventure an integral part of one’s life, enabling would-be adventurers to remove some of the most common barriers to adventure while minimizing the sacrifices related to work, money, and family.
