Want to explore some good fishing? Hop on a bicycle. From rail trails paralleling rivers to paths surrounding lakes, there are lots of opportunities to fish more good water – and bypass more bad, or at least unproductive – by taking to a bike. That’s one story we’ll be talking about here. Photo by Bob Frye Everybody Adventures.
So a lot of people have asked me the same question this weekend, namely, what exactly is Everybody Adventures?
Well, here’s the answer.
It’s a website, yes. On it you’ll find stories, blog posts and — very soon — videos and podcasts. There’s also an Everybody Adventures shop where you can buy gear and a “your campsite” section where readers can upload and share photos of deer, fish, sunsets, camp scenes and more (and we do want to see what you’ve got; it’s a big beautiful world out there).
But Everybody Adventures is also a bit like a magazine and a club rolled into one.
You can subscribe to Everybody Adventures for a yearly fee of $29.99 by clicking here.
What’s that get you?
First, you’ll receive a monthly emailed newsletter full of exclusive stories – unavailable on the website or anywhere else – about hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, paddling and the outdoors in general.
Each issue will include things like a main outdoors feature piece; a destination story highlighting a good place to hunt, fish, pitch a tent, paddle and more; a gear story where I’ll share what I’ve learned about new equipment I’ve tested; and a skills-type story, where we get experts to offer advice on how to be better at something specific, like, say, catching bass on topwater frogs, hunting from a ground blind, or cooking over a campfire.
You’ll also find recipes, tips, a calendar, outdoors do-it-yourself projects for children and families and stories that just talk about why we all love the outdoors so much.
That’s the magazine-like half of the equation.
Subscribing also gets you into what might be called the Everybody Adventures club. That brings special benefits.
Twice a year we’ll be sponsoring outdoors symposiums where we’ll bring in experts on everything from kayak bass fishing to archery deer hunting to backpacking. Subscribers automatically get two free tickets to each.
Subscribers also get entered into drawings for special outings. First up I’ll be taking someone on a sporting clays shoot at Seven Springs. (And no, it’s not true, as a wise guy buddy of mine suggested, that the winner of the drawing has to go shooting with me once, while the loser has to go with me twice. Ha! What a friend).
Lastly, all those who sign up get a free multitool – it’s this one, here, that we’re selling in our store – and coupons good for discounts on other items in the shop.
That shop is growing by the way, too. Expect soon to see products made not only locally – like fishing lures, game calls and the like – but in locations all across the country. We’ve been talking to manufacturers big and small at sport shows and other events and our inventory is growing all the time.
Sound like a good deal?
We think so. So I’ll keep writing and hope you’ll keep reading and perhaps even subscribe.
Maybe we can share some adventures together.
And in the meantime, if you’ve got additional questions, stop by the Allegheny Sport, Travel and Outdoor Show on Sunday. I’ll be hanging around our booth from 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., so stop in and say hello (and be sure to ask about the special show gift we’ll have for those who subscribe there).
