The Stoke the Fire 1.6 back on June 5 sparked some really interesting discussions.
- Marissa of The SpokenCoast Project asked how folks make a living out of adventures. “How do you pay your bills? Is it selling articles to publications? On your blog? With videos?” I offered my response in the form of another blog post called 6 Things I’ve Learned About Living Off My Lifestyle.
- Marissa also asked, “Have you ever had a favorite “outdoor” organization resort to aggressive mail & telephone spamming for your dollars? She was referring to her own experience with the Sierra Club.
- Kurtis of Spindrift Photography commented on how the party scene in some of our mountain communities is getting old. “Do you move to the mountain town to get crazy and party while you’re young or do you move there to Zen-out and live peacefully with the animals and mountain air?” Secondly, he asked, “Is there such a thing as an authentic lifestyle in the mountain culture or is it trendy?” Marissa and Meghan offered their responses. I also redirected to another post on the definition of an authentic mountain community.
