Another year full of adventure is drawing to a close! This year we’ve spoken at 62 conferences in 8 countries (Australia, NZ, Fiji, Vietnam, Dubai, Greece, Canada, USA) and clocked up a ridiculous total of 216 flights between us in 2013. Its been great to finish off the year with Jonesy presenting on the main stage at the Banff Mountain Film Festival with Aleks Gamme, and Cas presenting at TEDx in Athens. It blows us away that our presentations are still getting such a positive reaction from audiences. We’ve also just about to launch a new website dedicated to the speaking work that we do. More details on that soon!
We’re also stoked to announce we’ve recently teamed up with Yakima roof racks which has been an awesome partnership that has enabled us to load up our cars with all our outdoor toys. Awesome racks and gear…but even better they are a great crew to work with!
We’ve still managed to get out into the outdoors at every available opportunity!. In May we competed in the TNF50 & 100 (LINK: http://casandjonesy.com.au/tnf50-tnf100/), plenty of overnight hiking trips, canyons and for Cas a bucket load of rock climbing. He’s now climbing harder than ever before (thanks to having moved up to the Blue Mts 15mths ago). Mid year, we filmed a super exciting pilot for a potential TV show for National Geographic in the USA, but for now that’s all we can say! More soon.
Aside from outdoor adventures, we’ve always believed that adventure is relative and can happen in all aspects of life. Jonesy is stoked to have proposed to his girlfriend (and she said YES!) and Cas has celebrated his sons first birthday.
As we’ve hinted on Facebook, we’re busy preparing for our next BIG expedition. These plans will be released early 2014. What adventures have you got planned for 2014? We’re keen to hear! Drop us an email.
