LongTreks on Skate Decks Episode 11: Adult Decision

Welcome to Episode 11 of the Peru y Boliva long distance longboarding trip. Almost being seen by airport security, Adam, Paul, and Aaron decide to make the adult decision and not run across the Cusco International Airport. Getting out of Cusco proves to be hard and muddy but it is done and conquered. The crew pushes through strong headwinds and summits one of their highest passes of the trip 14,222 ft to be greeted by a alpaca convention at the top. The next day the team reaches the Alto Plano and is surrounded by beautiful rainstorms and rainbows.

NEMO ambassador Alison Gannett never stops. Whether she’s rippin’ it up on the slopes and teaching other women how to do the same or teaching members of Congress how to save money and energy while reducing the Nation’s carbon footprint, Alison is always moving and learning. Recently, she left her home in Crested Butte to try her hand at farming in Paonia, CO. The Denver Post covered the story here.
