Hi! I’m Lindsay, the founder of the Women’s Adventure Club and I’m so excited you’re here!
I hope this community of women is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
Why did I start this Adventure Club? Here’s my story...
Before moving to Sewickley, our family lived in Anchorage, Alaska. When we first got there, I was immediately taken by Alaska’s epic landscapes and unspoiled beauty. But I didn’t know how to be outdoorsy in the winter... and we were about to enter six months of it!
I was intrigued by the nordic and alpine skiers, the fat bikers in the snow, the snowshoers, and hikers who embraced winter with such enthusiasm.
Could I learn to do these things? At first my answer was no. I’m not a skier, I don’t have the gear, I don’t know the trail systems, I don't want to encounter a bear, I’m not experienced enough to go out with those Alaskan ladies. This is the story I told myself.
And then I met an Alaskan-born, super adventurous woman. She taught me how to nordic ski and it became my most beloved way to experience the outdoors. If I was able to learn that, then maybe I could do alllllll the things!
Fast forward a few years, and there I was: reveling in all the outdoor adventures with some fantastic ladies.
Those seven years in Alaska taught me how important it is for us to push past our comfort zone, to get outside with a good group of women, and to connect with nature. Adventuring brings such joy, courage, peace, and the feeling of being connected to something bigger than yourself.
Now that I know this, I can’t keep it to myself. I want to share it with other women. I want to build a community that helps women push past their boundaries and emerge stronger and happier, with their own amazing stories to tell.
