The four adventurous Texas A&M graduates challenge themselves against weather, terrain and personal conflicts through a 3000 mile epic journey from Mexico to Canada with 16 mustangs from the BLM adoption program.
Two professional climbers take up paragliding and set off on an adventure down to Mexico. Gunho and inexperienced, have they taken on more than they can handle?
A group of kayakers journey to the remote jungles of Papua New Guinea to attempt a first descent of the Beriman River, a daunting 40km run lined with sheer limestone walls and no way out but to ride to the ocean.
An Australian rock climber explains what it takes to climb one for the hardest routes in the Blue Mountains. A small team of riders travel to the remote Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan on a world first mountain bike expedition. How can one of the best freestyle MTB riders, in the world, come from the flat lands of Ohio. We go back to where his true passion for riding was born - at home.
