This is one day where I wish I could spent it entirely outside. Fall weather can be awesome! If you’re inside and need some outdoor inspiration, here ha go. This week’s Weekly Stoke!

A Canadian man on a long-term wilderness adventure in northwestern Quebec got more than he bargained for after a bear trashed his campsite and ate all his food: Three months in the bush, and rescued in the nick of time.

Despite the risks, wilderness adventure has its rewards. So says this writer in the Adventure Journal.

Another one from the Adventure Journal: A list of 14 scary things you might encounter in the Amazon.

We’ve got two daily doubles in the Stoke. The fist of two from the Wall Street Journal: How to get into mountaineering when you’re over age 50.

No. 2 from the WSJ: A graphic which shows the difference in how men and women tackle marathons.

And finally, this thoughtful essay about learning when to cool your heels when it comes to training for big races.

Enjoy your weekend, folks. Race hard, climb high and go far.
