This March, former NCAA Nordic Ski Champion Reid Pletcher decided to embark on an epic adventure around the globe. Starting in Sochi, Russia as a Paralympic ski guide for his close friend Jake Adicoff, Reid rollerbladed 800 miles through Europe, bouldered in Moab, Utah, built igloos on top of the Rocky Mountains, and hiked through the jungles of Peru. We asked Reid to take a GoPro camera along on his travels. Here is Part 1 of the TernPro Adventure Series with Reid Pletcher:
