"Somewhere around middle age, Bob was living a life that had become characterized by stress, ennui and more than one bad habit. Inspired by the changes he saw in his young son after an Outward Bound trek, Bob decided that he wanted to experience the same revitalization. Having set his first goal, and ultimately achieving it, Bob opened the door to a lifetime of adventures that have energized, enlivened and inspired him ever since. <br> From marathons to triathlons to adventures of the heart and soul, Bob's quests take us from beautiful locales in his own backyard to places as far-flung as Morocco, India, Kuwait, Ukraine and more. Whether sea kayaking off Vancouver Island's west coast, climbing magical Machu Picchu at sunrise or zip-lining and whitewater rafting in Costa Rica, Bob's animated detail and charming self-deprecating humour show us that, whatever our age, means or circumstances, everyone can have thrilling adventures. <br>In the process, what Bob learned about himself, others and the world beyond will inspire many to do what he continues to do.
