What is adventure? We think that many things could be called adventure. Trying new culinary recipes, learning new yoga postures, changing your everyday route to the office is adventure, because adventure involves exploration. In the process, you should learn more about the world around you and more about yourself.
Today we want to share an unique adventure of our cool friend Laurel and her group, which was organized by Camp Widjiwagan. They have spent 42 days and traveled 450 miles in the Arctic, pushing themselves to the limit, building confidence, and exploring extraordinary places.
We hope that the Q&A story Laurel shared with us will inspire you to go places.
K'UL: tell us about your experience of eating K'UL bars on the trail?
Laurel: The chocolate was incredibly helpful during our 42 days in the Arctic, on so many levels. First of all, nutritionally - we would turn to the bars when we needed quick and long-lasting energy. They were a great supplement to lunch, and an energizing snack throughout the day. Even more, the chocolate lifted our spirits.
When the weather was rough (we experienced many 30 or 40 degree days, and lots of rain and wind), snacking on a K’UL bar really improved our moods. It was also very special to know that your family is connected to Camp Widjiwagan. Eating the chocolate reminded us of the camp’s broad influence, and how lucky we are to be a part of this strong, multi-generational wilderness tradition. Finally, chocolate was something we all would simply look forward to. Even though we each swore by our favorite flavors, we enjoyed each and every bar immensely.
