Four years ago today, I lost the best dog that ever lived. Freedom was much more than a dog. He saved me from self-destruction. When i did not want to live or get out of bed, i got up to take care of him. He gave me purpose, direction and companionship on the lonely island of learning to live with a disability. He was the smartest, yet laziest dog you could ever meet. He wanted to sleep til noon and would look at me despairingly at the concept of running, but could get beers out of the fridge, differentiate between my driver’s license, keys and phone amongst a pile of treats and just seemed to understand complex concepts that he was not even trained for…
In a compelling tale, rich with images and video, Jeremy sets the stage to take a deep look in the mirror with the story of climbing and skiing, Bloody Couloir. He shares what motivates him and whats coming next with his adventures, the advancement of adaptive sports and The UnPavement Tour.
Jeremy is redefining what it means to be a challenged athlete. In 2012, he climbed and skied Bloody Couloir, a 2,600 foot backcountry ski route in the Easter Sierras, all without the use of his legs. The DROP IN film project documented the expedition, and a full-length feature film was released in 2014. Jeremy’s next challenge? The UnPavement Tour.
This bike has taken me on many adventures. It has gotten me off the pavement and out into the wilderness, seeing places i never would have without it. I seriously can NOT imagine my life without this new-found ability and now i want to help others find the same experience.
I started Sport-ON USA with that in mind. Being able to explore obscure little corners of this world is what its all about for me...and this bike will take YOU there
