This week’s episode is with Bjorn Olson of Homer. Bjorn is well known throughout the adventure community for his pioneering routes by fatbike throughout the state, often in the Northwest Arctic. He seeks more from his trips than self enjoyment, instead making a concerted effort to learn about local issues and interact with communities and residents along the way. We cover a broad spectrum in this conversation including :
-Growing up in a squatter’s cabin
-His first winter trip on the Iditarod
-The Donlin Mine
-His concept of instruments of adventure
-Playing and seeking out a sense of enjoyment in every moment
-The role of uncertainty
-Why he is attracted to the Northwest Arctic
-Where he has his eye on next
And much more.
This conversation proved to be a real treat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
