Because sometimes the best adventures happen right around the corner. Where you live. In the city even. True adventurers know it's less about the exact location and more about having a good time wherever you may be. - Which is why we're teaming up with @yeti to bring you some of the raddest urban adventures out there. - Full video and info here: https://gearjunkie.com/p/yeti-great-urban-outdoors ☝️link in profile - #adventurestartshere

Looking for a boat you can take everywhere? The foldable Oru Kayak may be just what you need. - As our reviewer wrote, "The sheet of plastic is scored and notched, an intricate pattern that folds tight and packs up box-shape to fit in a backpack. Undo the package, crease the material at its flex points, and fasten the straps. Soon, a kayak will emerge." - Full review here: https://gearjunkie.com/pack-up-oru-kayak-review-bay ☝️link in profile - And big thanks to @theninoknowledge for the awesome picture and paddle inspiration! -

Congratulations @kilianjornet! - We knew he was a premiere ultramarathoner, but it's now proven he's tough as nails after winning the Hardrock 100 with his arm in a sling! - "The Hardrock 100 Endurance Race is a revered event. The mountainous trail race crosses 100.5 miles of rugged Rocky Mountain terrain near Silverton, Colo. Runners must cross 13 major passes from 12,000′ to 13,000′. - Jornet finished in 24:32:22, his fourth-straight Hardrock win, and he did it with an injured, apparently dislocated shoulder. He ran with the injury for nearly 86 grueling miles." - Read all about it here: https://gearjunkie.com/kilian-jornet-wins-hardrock-100-dislocated-shoulder ☝️link in profile

Wouldn't mind heading here for the weekend! - Adventurer @carleyc_az has us dreaming of an escape with this picture and description, "We were the only Havasupai campers to hike the extra 16 miles down to the confluence of the Colorado River, and as a reward we had this entire place to ourselves. One of the best days of my life!" - #adventureboldly #gearjunkielife
