No Huddle Life: Episode 3: What Is the Meaning of No Huddle Life? | 8 mins
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.

No Huddle Life: Episode 4: Indoor Rock Climbing at 60+ | 12 mins
I have always wanted to try indoor wall climbing. And thanks to Dave Hanson from Colorado Wilderness Rides & Guides and Movement Climbing + Fitness in Boulder, CO, I did just that! I started the adventure so cavalier. Brimming with confidence. That is until I got inside the facility and looked up at the walls. They were WAY higher than I had imagined they would be. And I was the oldest person there. All the other climbers looked like they were straight out of ad in Outside Magazine or something. Perfect physiques. My palms started sweating just taking in that vista. Somehow, probably because I had the film crew with me and I did not want to embarrass myself in front of my climbing coach, I got myself strapped in and went for it. You will see for yourself. It is not necessarily my best moment. But reaching the top of that indoor wall, even if not looking all that great doing it, was a big win for me. That is what NoHuddle Life is all about. Getting out of your comfort zone. Trying new, fun things. No matter what age you are or even if you are not in the best of shape (within reason, of course). I am definitely adding indoor climbing to my list of favorite adventure activities. And maybe even someday, taking it outside to the legendary climbing areas of Boulder, CO. Honestly, I have got a ways to go before I do that. I am working on getting my body to catch up to my adventurous spirit. Who is with me?

No Huddle Life: Episode 5: Newbie Humbly Learns Casting Basics | 10 mins
Part 3 of a truly epic trilogy: Backcountry E-biking in the Rockies + trout fishing a remote mountain lake. In Part 1, I got over my lifelong fear of motorbikes and went screaming down a single-track mountain trail. In Part 2, I caught my first fish on a Tenkara rod, minimal skill required. It this episode, I watch as the Colorado trout whisperer and master guide, Jack Bruner, makes a perfect cast and sets the hook, in one, zen-like moment. I then proceed to get my lesson in humility. I graduate to a fly-rod and reel and begin learning the basics of roll casting and back casting. An ah-ha moment is achieved. And fish are caught. But a realization is had. This highly addicting activity of fly-fishing is indeed a lifelong pursuit. Probably like golf, I imagine. You are not going to master it overnight. But once the sport gets under your skin, you will find yourself thinking about it a lot. Maybe too much. I have begun the journey.
