Yvon Chouinard – Back to the Outdoors

Following my recent posts on Yvon Chouinard and Let My People Go Surfing I was contacted by Sara White of Timex Expedition, who are supporting the US Conservation Alliance on a project called Return to the Outdoors which hopes to reconnect Americans “with nature and outdoor activity”.

Now not something I would normally blog about but they have produced an interesting video of Yvon Chouinard talking about his love of the outdoors:

Ironically the video is shot in Argentina but it does make me want to take up fly fishing.

Makes me wonder if kids here in the UK spent more time in our wonderful countryside they might stop stabbing each other…
