Finding Freedom in 74sq Feet - Overcoming life changing challenges and exploring the world with Kirk Williams
In this episode we interview Kirk Williams who's explored the world in his van and wheelchair. Growing up in Ashland VA, Kirk fell in love with mountain biking with the help of someone unexpected - his friend's dad. When it came time to apply for college Kirk didn't search for the best school in the states. He searched for the school with the best outdoor community in the states, which landed him in Colorado. Enthralled with his new home he couldn't get enough of the outdoors, but one day that all changed. While riding a trail he gave way to an approaching rider, which turned into a freak accident that left him paralyzed. At some point during his rehab Kirk made the decision that his accident wasn't going to define him - or his adventures. He took on a new perspective, got the proper equipment, bought a van and decided to take on the world as he originally intended. If you've ever wondered why mind over matter always prevails then this one's for you! Tweet us and let us know what you think of this episode! @illuminecollect
