Women’s Live Adventurously Weekend

Live Adventurously is a theme DNK Presents has focused on since forming our business 5 years ago. The idea to try something new or something you haven’t done in a while with other like-minded women in the great outdoors. One of the reasons we founded the (“Live Adventurously“) Women’s Adventure Giveaway was that we saw so many women benefitting from our outdoor experiences we were providing. We offer the Giveaway once a year, but are working with sponsors and partners to be able to offer this unique opportunity more so we can help more women empower themselves, build confidence and strengthen their overall health and wellness.

The Women’s Live Adventurously Weekend for women to try some of the same things we offer during the Women’s Adventure Giveaway, only with even more to choose from! Think about going to a conference and choosing which speakers you want to listen to, only here choosing what workshop you want to be part of or if you want to take a hike, bike ride, yoga class or learn about wilderness medicine! We hope you will join us for this awesome outdoor summit!

What to wear: If you have mountain bike padded shorts, please wear them, your bum will thank you! If you do not have padded shorts look into investing in some or wear shorts, leggings or comfortable pants (not really baggy) that you wouldn’t mind getting dirty or wearing for several hours on your bike. Look at the forecast, wear and bring layers, rain gear, and extra dry clothes just in case.

Women’s Adventure Getaway: Laughter, Challenge, Reflection

By Hannah Kelling

Our Getaway Weekend was the gift that kept on giving. Whether we felt ready to admit it or not, each one of us participants (and maybe our guides, too?) needed a break from the onslaught of the daily grind. Mothering, schooling, moving, and bounding over the hurdles of life in a seemingly endless routine had worn each of us down to a point where we didn’t really recognize ourselves anymore. That began to change when we arrived at the Lula Lake Land Trust on Thursday evening. Like it or not, we had to let go of that routine which was both demanding and comforting, tiring and reliable. We were blown away by a wonderful set of gear and then promptly set out for destinations unknown. Arriving at the overlook where (unbelievably) we would spend our first night, the demands of the “real world” started to fall away. We had no responsibilities beyond setting up our hammocks and being present for each other. We were asked only to listen, to laugh, to reflect, and to engage mindfully with the beautiful scenery and extraordinary company we’d been gifted. One by one, little by little… We let go. We allowed ourselves to be surprised. We lost control, and found adventure.

The weekend continued in a series of grand and little surprises. An incredible salmon dinner. A couple four leaf clovers. A rafting adventure on the Ocoee. A chance to read our nomination letters. You would just catch your breath, and then it would be taken away again by another incredible gift. We told each other stories, tales which seemed to illustrate exactly why we needed to be there. Stories of challenges and survival, sacrifice and generosity, loss and discovery. I grew to really genuinely love everyone. Chelsea for her good listening and kindness, Bridget for her vivaciousness and strength, Kristen for her generosity and gentleness. And our guides and hosts… How could we ever thank you enough? How could we ever put to words how much that meant to us?

Driving back home, I didn’t THINK much. My mind wasn’t occupied with trying to plan/control my future or ruminating on the mistakes of the past. For once, I was just wrapped up in a feeling. Something like contentment, but spiced up with real joy and playfulness. The feeling that I really was the luckiest person on Earth.
