These books, along with an insatiable desire to explore, led me down an unconventional path to world travel, exciting (and sometimes insane) adventures and an active lifestyle that I parlayed into a career as a Backroads Trip Leader. So which stories have inspired me to explore, seek adventure, change the world for the better and do so confidently? Here are my top five.
About: Ash Bocast
Originally from Northern California, Ash now considers her passport and duffle bag the staples of home life. Whether immersing herself in the dynamic cultures of Southeast Asia, hitchhiking across Central America or exploring her backyard in the good ol’ U-S-of-A, Ash is driven by an insatiable need for adventure. “My rule of thumb is to always say ‘yes’ to whatever life throws my way. Free solo climbing in Red Rocks Canyon? Okay! White-water kayaking for the first time on Class III rapids in New Zealand? Sure! Taking 13 teenagers on a three-week camping trip? Bring it!” When she isn’t leading trips with Backroads, Ash is seeking single track with her mountain bike, Huck, and her dog, Finn, while living in her converted campervan.
