Ep. 14 - David Lee - The Passionate Peaker

July 15th, 2019

When our next guest saw pictures of alpine climbing in National Geographic as a kid, it sparked a deep fascination with the mountain. While a lot of canoeing happened in between (aka the Passionate Paddler), David Lee rediscovered his desire to climb mountains in his forties (aka the Passionate Peaker). From his first forays into winter camping to heading out to climb Mt. Rainier at 14,411 ft, David reveals his journey exploring remote peaks while still holding down a full-time career.  A drive to keep gaining skills and take on new challenges fuels him to keep pushing his boundaries when most would be happy to just relax at the cottage with a beverage in hand. Give a listen and gain some understanding of how it’s possible to have a lot of adventures while still having a successful career.
