Hello everyone, and welcome back to the Success InSight Podcast

Today's episode of Success InSight is another addition to our Outdoor Adventure Series.

It’s a pleasure to have Scott Leuthold return as our guest. Scout is an adventurer, and Founder of 4xpedition. For more than 30 years, Scott has been exploring the natural world on foot, driving and riding off-road vehicles, riding touring and mountain bikes, and paddling watercraft. His adventures have taken him to the remote corners of the world.

This past week I reached out to Scott and asked if he would like to join me here on Success InSight - Outdoor Adventure Series to discuss how to prepare for an outdoor adventure?

In today’s episode, Scott shares his recommended Health-related Essentials and Vehicle Recovery Essentials. We hope that today’s episode will help you prepare for your upcoming outdoor adventures, either solo (with your pet too), with loved ones, and with friends.

The list below is an initial one that Scott shared on his Facebook page, and which we discussed. There is much more to the preparation thought.  Click here for a link to Scott's recommended hiking equipment, and click here for a link to Scott’s list of recommended Health-related Essentials & Vehicle Recovery Essentials.
