Adventure is an unusual and exciting,
typically hazardous experience of activity.

Adventure is setting out on a journey (mental or physical) where you are not at all sure of the outcome. Oftentimes, the best adventures are the ones that are so “unknown” that we don’t even know how to define the “success” that we are hoping for. Some may even say ‘An adventure is simply a vacation gone wrong.’

If you have been around any YogaSlackers for long enough, you might have experienced one of their adventures. We strive to have adventures on a daily basis. Why? Because we understand that adventure helps shape you as a person. Adventures let you see who you are deep inside, without any filter. Adventures are a way to push the limits of human potential and discover who we really are. Ultimately, a desire for adventure is what every first-time explorer needs to embrace in order to take that first step.

On a historical note, before the YogaSlackers were teaching slackline yoga, founders Sam Salwei and Jason Magness were adventure racing as Team YogaSlackers. Now, the team races with the name Bend Racing. The team is an entity of its own and has become a name that keeps professional adventure racers awake at night.

We strive to have so many adventures, that we forget more adventures that most people have in a lifetime.

Road to Wanderlust Tour

After learning that their beloved Peace Love Car had less than a year of life, Sam Salwei and Raquel Hernández-Cruz decided to say their goodbyes with an epic adventure. They gave themselves 8 months to drive to all 49 US continental states (yes, including Alaska!) and 5 Canadian Provinces, teach a class and do an adventure. They succeed at both.

"Too Much Fun" Expeditions

“Too Much Fun” is the antidote to a shortage of time off. Andy Magness devised this expedition format to cram a year’s worth of adventure into a single long weekend. The expedition revolved around conquering high points with little rubber boats on our back, packrafts. Our strategy involved placing bikes at the river’s take-out point, then driving our vehicles to the trailhead to embark on climbing at least one mountain. Along the way, we added elements of technical rock climbing, thrilling ski descents, and challenging off-trail navigation wherever possible.

Our ultimate goal was to reach the river’s headwaters, where we would hike alongside it until it was time to inflate our packrafts. We would then paddle downstream, sometimes facing up to Class 5 rapids, sometimes utilizing hand paddles, until we reached the take-out point. From there, we’d hop on our bikes and pedal back to the vehicles, all in a race against the clock to ensure Andy Magness caught his flight home. It was a completely self-supported venture, which often translated to sharing three sleeping bags among five people and typically squeezing into a three-person tent.

Invariably, things rarely unfolded as planned, but that was part of the charm. Join us as we offer you a rare glimpse into the sometimes unforgiving reality of “Too Much Fun,” all captured and produced by us ‘YogaSlackers’ in these mini films.
