No Huddle Life: Episode 1: Hiking The Colorado Royal Arches at 60+ | 16 mins
I moved to Boulder, CO about a year ago. I was recovering from a physical thing. And hiking was my main form of physical therapy. Still is. The mountains are the greatest “health club” in the world – for beginners up to experts. But I met my match with Royal Arch Trail. Cut me some slack, as I wrongly call it Royal ARCHES in the video at least 5 times. And I can not seem to get my story straight on how many times I previously tried to reach the summit… (this last attempt was my third). It must have been the oxygen deprivation 🙂 This hike kicked my ass.

No Huddle Life: Episode 2: Why EVERYONE Should Try Zip-Lining! | 8 mins
I do not think this video conveys the extreme fear factor of my zip-lining adventure in the Rocky Mountains over the pines and roaring creek. It was my very first time. There are all sorts of panic when you leave a 65 ft.-high platform and fly through the air at 45 m.p.h. into the unknown. Plus, it was shivery cold. When the sun goes behind the mountain, the wind starts whipping through the canyon, a snow begins to fall, and you are screaming down the line—I was shaking for more reasons than one. I know you will notice the guides were running around in regular shirts and were so nonchalant about it all. But they do not count. There are people who are X-Games types and those that are not. I am not. But, rise above the fear I did. There is a total rush to overcoming something you consider dangerous. I suppose there is a real element of risk. But I am pretty sure the elation comes from winning over your personal obstacles. And yeah, I will be back! I checked out other zip-lining experiences on YouTube and there's a world of amazing adventure out there. That's what NoHuddle Life is all about.

In this episode, the meaning of “No Huddle Life” is revealed. This YouTube channel’s name is deep with symbology. For me anyway 🙂 Somehow, the name ties the purposes together: A life wake-up call. Reinventing yourself. Conquering your bucket list of outdoor adventures and beyond. Living a longer, healthier, more fulfilling life. And having some just plain fun. Lemme know if this video does the trick and brings you an aha moment of what the !@#$ No Huddle Life means. I really didn’t mean to be esoteric! This YouTube channel is from the heart. Check out this book: Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley (https://amzn.to/2r5TfAx). Highly recommended. It was an inspiration to me in starting this channel. You will recognize parallels. Bottom line: it is much better to be active than sedentary.
