48. Ben Davis - Navy SEAL, 100 Mile MTB, Veterans’ Advocate

Our guest for Episode 48 is Ben Davis, a former Navy SEAL who uses his love for the outdoors, military and combat experience, and finishes at the Leadville and Shenandoah 100 mile mountain bike races in his current position as Executive Director at VOAG - or Veterans' Outdoor Advocacy Group - to advocate on behalf of veterans for the use of outdoor activities as accepted, funded and prescribed therapies to mend the mental and emotional scars affecting our veterans after a 21 year war on terror.

It’s a great conversation where we talk about the differences - and similarities - between BUDS training and Leadville as well as get details on a harrowing night spent at 14,000 feet on Long’s Peak, unable to descend until morning. So sit back, or lace ‘em up, and if you’re ready for the show, crank it up, and let’s go.
