Hi everyone, my name is Erik. I am the creator of the Humble Expeditions blog. I aim to inspire people on this blog to get outside of thier comfort zones and try new things, and go to new places.
I started blogging knowing nothing about it and never having any interest in this sort of thing. I just loved to travel and go places and do epic stuff. I had several friends and co workers that had said I should start a blog to document all the places I go, and things I see and do, and that is how this blog started.
I love everything about the outdoors, be it road tripping through the states, living in my truck for periods of time, or finding a new crag to go rock climbing at. I have so many interests in the outdoors and to sit and list them all would quite frankly be boring. I will let the blog posts do all of that talking.
I have found too often people let the situations in their lives dictate where they want to go. It often slows people down from achieving everything that they have ever wanted. By living in fear and not playing with the cards you are dealt, you minimize your full potential and desires. If you learn to play with the cards you are given, in the long run you will win every time.
I scored a pacemaker when I was 14 years old, and I have realized that I don’t want that to be a controlling factor in my life, therefore I am always pushing myself and others, mentally and physically to accomplish what we want in life. It could be completing a difficult climb, or hiking to the top of a huge mountain, or learning a new skill or craft. Whatever it may be, make it happen because we only have this short time here on this rock, so why not make it worth it?
Currently I am Living in Phoenix, Arizona, working in a level one trauma center as an ER Tech. I am pursuing a career in nursing so that I can help others, and have a career that will allow me the flexibility and time to enjoy travel and other outdoor activities.
Whelp, there is a little bit about me, I hope I can help at least one person to get out of their comfort zone and get out there and enjoy every part of life!
Feel free to drop a comment, ask me any questions, and interact with me. I enjoy getting feed back about my posts, so that I can work to create more meaningful content and connect with my readers! Have a great day!
