The Adventure Post, launched in August 2011, is a website community of active travelers and outdoor enthusiasts who inspire others to explore the world. The site is home to a broad network of veteran outdoor writers, photographers and adventure travelers posting accounts of their latest journeys, including insider knowledge on where to go and what to do. They also deliver the latest travel news, and review products for travel and outdoor recreation.
“With a diverse group of bloggers, we cover a wide range of experiences, so the site appeals to all types of people who enjoy the outdoors and love to travel,” said Wendy Geister, co-founder of The Adventure Post. “We reach out to people of all ages, abilities and levels of experience.”
But the website does much more than merely push information to readers. “The visitors to The Adventure Post are a critical part of the community, and we want them to join in the conversation,” said Marcus Woolf, co-founder of The Adventure Post. “Through social media and other forums, visitors can communicate with each other and engage our bloggers.”
Together, Woolf and Geister have more than 30 years of experience working as reporters, writers and editors for outdoor recreation, sports and travel magazines and websites. Over that time, they have built excellent reputations as skilled, thorough journalists who understand the demands and needs of today’s outdoor enthusiasts and travelers of all types
“People want inspiring stories to spark ideas for their next trip, and they want personal recommendations on where to go,” said Woolf. “They also want first-hand knowledge on what to do, and gear, clothing and shoe reviews from people who are honest, thorough and actually use the stuff.”
Visitors to the site will see stories covering the full breadth of travel and outdoor recreation, from touring Australia to hiking the Great Smoky Mountains, to reviews of the latest products and news on issues affecting U.S. and international travel.
“We established this site to inspire people, and to give them practical advice that helps them plan their next trip,” said Geister. “When they read a post on our site, we want them to say, ‘Wow, I wanna go there!’ And we want them to come away with insight that will help them actually get there.”
