Jo fondly recalls family summers on a remote lake in the Mallee. It was an oasis in the middle of a desert and where her love of the outdoors, especially water places, began. It resonated strongly with her as a place where she could explore unrestrained, and experience total freedom.
The stunning coastal town of Mallacoota is now her home with an incredible abundance of adventurous opportunities at her doorstep to sustain her. As her own family grows, Jo is discovering time for micro adventures or ‘adventure snippets’ as she calls them. She has ambitions to make these longer and recently ran self-supported from Mallacoota to Eden over two days.
She is most excited about taking her family to wild places. Her experience so far with lightweight gear and on small journeys with them has inspired her. They, like her, desire the freedom, wonderment and simplicity of life experienced in natural spaces.
