It's time to think seriously about getting out! Slowly but surely the world is beginning to open up again, and we are trying to make the best of it in 2022! For big adventure we've got trekking in the Mustang region of Nepal, hiking the Inca Trail, or seeing all that Croatia has to offer. A little closer to home is Big Bend, offering a week of packrafting on the Rio Grande. Check out the full list of adventures we have planned for next year and beyond. Have a destination or an adventure you've always wanted to experience? We're putting together private trips for those of you who have family or friends itching to get out. Let us know soon if you have an idea- our calendar is filling up quickly! We are making plans that balance safety, financial risk, and the desire to get out. Hope you will come join us outside!


    Wow, our PPS friends are such generous people! We know we say this often, but we are so in awe of what has been made possible by your support and what you have contributed to this worldwide community. It's difficult to express how grateful we are to have you in our lives. Thanks to your help, this year we've been able to offer over $95,000 in support of our friends around the world! See the report HERE. But the need for support goes on and gets bigger. Our Kili guides and porters are looking to buy land for their farm, and Lake Eyasi is in need of a daycare to keep the children in the area safe. Click HERE to contribute to Yusuf's Kilimanjaro Projects, Lightness' Womens Projects, or the Yusuf, Guides & Porters Scholarships through Journeys of Solutions. If you prefer, we could direct your donation to where it's needed most. We'll be updating you soon with more details. Thank you for all you have already done!


    In spite of the limited ability to travel over the past year, we've been able to get out and explore beautiful places with wonderful people. We've savored the opportunity to adventure in small groups, sometimes with only 1 other person, in areas we love. The pleasure of time with friends and the experience of the outdoors have been heightened in the contrast of social distancing and restricted travel. Like the Arctic packraft that finally happened after being rescheduled multiple times- it gave us the awareness to find beauty in every moment. We are grateful to have had so many moments this year- the rainbows bright against the clouds in Alaska, the sunrise lighting up a desert cliff in Utah, the glittering surface of the ocean on a rare calm day in Maine. Reminders that the sun does shine even in the darkest times. The clouds are beginning to break in this pandemic- check out our upcoming adventures to find your chance to explore as the sun starts coming out again!
