The Out Living it Project Create Your Own Adventure platform is all about creating stoke and embracing a lifestyle of outdoor adventure and connection! When you register your adventure, you gain access to resources like training plans, gear discounts, vetted outfitters, lodging info and other exclusive FD deals.

You can dream big or start small – it’s up to you! Take on that backpacking trip you’ve always wanted to do or just gather the First Descents community for a day of hiking or kayaking. While you spearhead the planning, we’ll support you to make the process smooth, safe and fun.

Interested in joining an existing adventure? Check out the adventures the First Descents community is already planning below to find one near you. This is a simple and fun way to gather the FD fam and take out living it into your own hands.
