boating is adventure

Uncle Roy E. is not a relative, but a friend who’s now long since passed over the bar. Roy loved boating and, at least to look at him out on the water, he was a fisherman. But not really. Roy was much more than that. On any given day, you’d find Roy and his lady out among the fleet, a line dropped, trying to catch what was running. But if you idled up alongside and asked how he was doing, instead of recounting tales of the one that got away or giving you a count of keepers in the box, he’d just smile the biggest smile you ever saw and tell you: “We’re drifting and dreaming. We’re living the dream.” Roy knew what was what. Our annual Adventure Issue, which you have in…

seychelle hattingh,

Stand-up paddleboarding is not just about Zen-like paddling and yoga moves — this sport has an adventurous side. Just ask Seychelle Hattingh, a Florida Keys native who has racked up an impressive list of records, including the Guinness World Record for the greatest distance paddled in 24 hours and the “Fastest on Earth” female SUP title. So, you tackled a Guinness World Record for SUP? Yes, in December 2015 at Benderson Park in Sarasota, Florida. I paddled a 5-kilometer loop 38 times, which added up to 110.47 miles. It was the greatest distance on a stand-up paddleboard on flat water in 24 hours by a woman. Technically, two paddlers have gone farther, but they haven’t gotten approved by Guinness. They make it really hard. In 2016, you also were a “Fastest in Florida”…

wonders of wildlife museum

On September 21, 2017, Johnny Morris, the founder of Bass Pro Shops and White River Marine Group, cut the ribbon to the Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, Missouri. It was the culmination of a fourdecade quest that, some might say, was the driving force behind his development of the world’s grandest outdoor sporting empire. The 350,000-squarefoot complex housing the museum and aquarium features more than 1.5 miles of trails through realistic wildlife habitats and 1.5 million gallons of freshwater and saltwater aquariums. The Wonders of Wildlife contains 35,000 live fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds displayed in their natural habitats. “This facility is really all about sportsmen and women, hunters and anglers in our country that have meant so much to conservation,” Morris said to press…
