First Exposure to the Outdoors

I was exposed to the outdoors, thankfully by my parents at a very young age. My brothers and I were introduced to the outdoors camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, all sorts of outdoor activities. So I got introduced to that at a very young age. We're talking like elementary school, single-digit years old. It's been with me pretty much since I was born.

Advice

I think the main thing is to have a passion for it. I've seen a lot of people who want to start a blog about X, whatever that might be. Maybe it's the outdoors, maybe it's auto repair. But really they need to have a big passion for it. Where when you're not doing your day job, you're thinking about how can I do this thing that I love to do, whether that's doing it with friends or going out by yourself or exploring a new place you haven't been to, or just reading books and other websites on it. So that's the biggest thing. Find where that passion area lies. Because then you'll stick with it. You'll always find new material and you'll just find it fun.
