This is as time-sensitive episode! In the next few days, Josh Guerrero of the All Around Adventure podcast sets off on a 1200-mile, multi-month, self-funded, self-supported trek from north to south across the state of Michigan. He’ll travel ultra-light, minimizing gear and nonetheless face fall and winter weather, uncertain conditions, and even the possibility of bears and wolves. Much more than just an epic adventure, Josh is raising money and awareness for a non-profit that supports American military veterans through involvement in global archaeological digs.

Josh Guerrero is on a mission to add value to the world.

I’m Josh Guerrero, a versatile traveler and adventurer making the most of my time on this wonderful planet. Traveling was not something that I imagined doing much of when I was younger. While growing up in a small town in Michigan, the world seemed small and simple to me. It wasn’t until college when I had first started traveling more seriously, with various road trips around the United States. Shortly before graduating is when I had my first international travel experience, a two-week study abroad to Japan. It was an absolutely amazing experience, with beautiful cities and landscapes, a wonderful culture, and loads of delicious food! After that I was completely hooked, and it left me with a burning desire to see more of the world ever since.

Since then I’ve done two stints as an expatriate. I lived in The Gambia, West Africa for two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer, and one year in England as a graduate student. All while trying to travel and experience as much as I can along the way. For me, travel memories and stories are more meaningful than any material possession. And I’ve been thrilled to have had some great adventures so far.  I’ve done shipwreck diving in Lake Superior, cycled 300 miles across The Gambia, floated on top of the salty water of the Dead Sea, and rode camels in the Sahara desert, just to name a few. Oh, and there was also that time that I ate a ram’s testicles, that was interesting!

Now I wish to share my stories with all of you!
