That’s right, folks. I’m hitting the road again for season three of Live Outside and Play, and this time, I have a special someone for the ride!

_MG_2790Meet Adam Ritter, the Logistics Coordinator and Brand Ambassador for Live Outside and Play. Adam is the perfect copilot, my personal partner-in-crime, and possibly the best ambassador a brand could ever ask for. He’s thru-hiked both the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail in just under 200 days, never shies away from an adventure, and lives life to the fullest. Help welcome Adam to the program, and follow along in his own ramblings on his Instagram account @ajr1tter.

As if having a partner this year wasn’t exciting enough, we are also psyched to announce that we are venturing beyond the Blue Ridge this year to the wild state of Colorado!! This year, Blue Ridge Outdoors has partnered with our sister publication, Elevation Outdoors, to bring you our first cobranded festival circuit. You can find Adam and I at 20 outdoor events and music festivals all around the Southeast/Mid-Atlantic states, as well as throughout Colorado. We’ll be east-side in the spring and fall months, and out west in the summer, so keep in touch! We’d love to meet up with you on the road, give you a tour of our van, and most importantly, go outside and play.

A big thanks to our awesome sponsors, without whom this program would not be possible!
