They’re some of our most inspiring Alaskans, the outdoor athletes who remain active and even competitive in their 70′s and 80′s. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’ll be talking to elder athletes, finding out what keeps them going, and what advice they have to the rest of us to be where they are when we hit that age. It’s a community inspired show, with guests pulled from listener nominations.
