We both know Travis from back in the day, same generation of snowboarding. I remember him always being a trail blazer and artist of his craft, standing out with powerful and expressive style. After podcasting with Lyndsy Dyer at her home in Jackson Hole we got a chance to drive over to Travis’s compound and have an epic chat. He had just arrived back in town after a trip to Utah...

LINES TO HAWAII 2017
Bonnie Paine May is multi-instrumentalist and the lead singer of Elephant Revival, a folk music group from Nederland, Colorado, formed in 2006. We met Bonnie Paine at a music festival called “Caravan to Wondergrass” in Ojai, CA last fall. Elephant Revival was the headliner of the festival and we were invited up there by our friend and producer of the festival, Scotty Stugthon, to celebrate Chanelles birthday.
It only took minutes after meeting with the band that we realized Bonnie was a soul sister. It was also clear to us that we were meant to connect deeper at some point. The next time we saw Bonnie was in Breckenridge, Colorado, our winter base the past 7 years. We got to take her snowboarding and she tried to teach us how to play the cello (it is really hard btw but completely heart opening)
She picked up snowboarding wayyy faster than we picked up the music - LOL. Bonnie is such a talented human and pours her heart and soul into her musical performances. Her voice is angelic and we are pretty sure she can figure out how to play any instrument you put in front of her within a few minutes. She can even make a construction saw sing!!
Most of all she is a kind, generous, soft adventurous spirit that is also in love with nature.
Our roadtrip from Jackson Hole, Wyoming continued and as we past through Breckenridge, Colorado we recorded a PRSNT podcast with Bonnie. When reunited in Boulder a month later and co-wrote the jingle for our show. Today we are so excited to share this deep dive where we get to know Bonnie even better with all of you...
If you are not one of the 150.000 humans who subscribe to her spotify each month already, if not maybe you will want to join the party and enjoy Elephant Revivals soulful music.
We first met Lynsey in Utah back in November, during the annual Protect Our Winters athletes Summit. The first day we all went to rock climb as a “get to know each other better” activity. We instinctively knew we were were meant to be friends with Lynsey as she also brought a fedora hat to the climbing gym. We quickly found out that we shared more things in common than the hats and we spent the next days connecting through our shared passion for protecting our winters and our environment in general. As she invited us on her Podcast we learned that. Her latest project, her podcast; Showing UP, can be found in the show notes. We also share interest in creative storytelling and film projects with a deeper purpose Lindsey was the mastermind behind and the producer of (and also skied in) the all girls ski movie Pretty Faces. Lindsey invited us out to visit her in Jackson Hole in December, so we packed up our summer home in California and headed out to Wyoming.
This episode was recorded on a fallen tree in the teton backcountry as we watched the sunset snacking on our hippie food and reflecting on life.
As the three of us are always seeking the abnormal experience, we decided to bring all our podcast gear out into the Teton Backcountry and record an adventure cast.
A global "adventurecast" bringing raw, mindful conversations, with leading experts in inspiring industries, to life. We seek to shine the light on diverse topics including health, travel, personal growth, outdoor adventures, athleticism, entrepreneurship, start-ups, women's empowerment, meditation, western and eastern medicine, science, environmental issues and solutions, sustainability, culture, arts and much more. Whether we are recording on a train, plane or automobile or deep in the backcountry, we invite you to join our unique conversations that will remind you of the power of the prsnt moment.
Our intention is to use our platforms as professional athletes to connect with humans that we find inspiring and bring them onto our nomadic stage. We intend to use our curious minds and growth-seeking spirits to get deep with both the guest and the audience.
With a playful, weird, wellness evangelically and authentic approach, we invite the listener to #BPRSNT with us as we take them on extraordinary adventures, with a goal to touch unfamiliar terrain within.
We seek to engage, empower, inspire and awaken people and their true spirits and be a collective voice as a force for good, both for human and planetary health and wellness.
