Hi! I’m Joey Rivers, the coordinator for SOS ADVENTURES. Let me first thank you for visiting our site, and taking time to learn more about us!

A little about me… I love being in the awe-inspiring beauty of the great outdoors. It’s where I go to be inspired and challenged. My favorite places are usually in the mountains, but you’ll also find me at sea-level, and every place in between. I have a passion for outdoor adventure and really enjoy: fishing, hiking, camping, biking, kayaking, and outdoor photography. Now I’m not an adventurer in the modern sense, (think GoPro commercial), but I do consider myself at least an adventure enthusiast. Actually I’m passionate about it! Does that make me a fanatic? Probably!

SOS ADVENTURES was originally created in 2004 as a military/survival-themed summer camp for teens. Years later, we began offering basic wilderness survival instruction for both youth and adults in our community. Initially, this site was created as a means to provide information regarding our Basic Wilderness Survival classes to participants. Unfortunately due to the pandemic, a decision was made to put all classes on hold temporarily. As a result, the website has currently evolved into more of a personal blog style site, with emphasis on outdoor adventure. As COVID restrictions continue to ease, we hope to resume classes in the very near future!

Let me encourage you to get outside and explore remote and wide open spaces. If we can help you better prepare for your next outing, please contact us!

Keep chasing that next adventure and remember… “Life’s an adventure so don’t just survive it, live it!”
