TTB 172: Walking 1,200 Miles for American Veterans Archaeological Recovery

TTB 172: Walking 1,200 Miles for American Veterans Archaeological Recovery

Josh Guerrero (@allaroundadventure) is walking across the entire state of Michigan! He's following the North Country National Scenic Trail (NCNST), for a total distance of about 1,200 miles which will be the most audacious physical feat that he's ever done! And he's taking this on in order to raise money to help his fellow Veterans through the American Veterans Archaeological Recovery foundation. 

Josh is the creator of All-Around Adventure, a travel blog and podcast through which he shares amazing tales from afar and the all-important life lessons that go along with them. He's also a former United States Marine, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, Archaeologist, and Adventurer who has now embarked on a whole new journey!

The Travelers Blueprint is an indie travel podcast where each week we like to bring you insight from travel authors, adventurers, conservationists, digital nomads, tour guides, and through our own personal experiences.

We came up with the name "The Travelers Blueprint" for two main reasons:
To provide information for you to draft your own itineraries or how to begin a career that takes you all over the world.
We both have backgrounds in engineering, architecture, or the environment, so we though a blueprint was an apt title to describe our intentions and end goal.

Why We Do It:
We both recently settled down with our careers and families, and can no longer live the nomadic lifestyle we both still crave. The solution to satisfy our overwhelming wanderlust is this podcast where we get to sit down with savvy travelers, globetrotters, conservationists, nature-lovers, or any other travel enthusiasts to peer into their inspiring lives. By listening to these fascinating individuals, we vicariously live through their experiences, and in turn share them with you.

You will hear the personal stories of extraordinary people who have “been there and done that”. Our guests share their unique wisdom and unpack valuable advice on how to plan your trip, what to do once you get there, and how to make sure you head back home (or not) with memories that will last a lifetime. Each episode’s discussion will range from a particular location, to discussing a travel-oriented project or conservation effort, and everything in between.

Occasionally, we take a break from hosting guests, and you will get the opportunity to listen to us divulge our own travel ideas and travel experiences, or maybe just exchange our thoughts on travel methods. Although we have similar worldviews and travel ideologies, you will quickly learn that we also have some very different travel expectations.

Tune in each week, and discover something new about the world, the fascinating cultures buried within, and learn how to draft your own journey from those who have traveled before you!
