Steve Casimiro started Bike Magazine, ran Powder for a decade and was the West Coast editor of National Geographic Adventure from it’s beginning until it’s recent end. He also launched his own site, The Adventure Life, on January 1st, 2009. After a few minutes sifting through the site’s news coverage, travel stories, photos and gear reviews, it’s clear that TAL will soon be the online destination for all things outdoors and perhaps Steve’s most important project to date. The guy is a professional – you trust him, you want advice from him, you listen when he’s got something to say.
About a month or two ago, when Steve asked if I would do an interview for The Adventure Life, I quickly accepted before he had a chance to change his mind. Was he drunk? Starting a charity? Whatever the reason, my answers to his questions were posted earlier today, along with some of the kindest and most flattering words I’ve ever read. I am truly honored, and while I never take this whole blogging thing too seriously, Steve’s article makes it pretty tough to not want to keep going and going and going.
To Steve and everyone else who has been reading this rag for the past year and a half, thanks.
