Format: Kindle Edition
I first met Frosty at a program at REI in Boulder. We are both from Michigan, over 60 and have had many outdoor adventures.

His make mine look like I never left my couch.

His well written book will provide the motivation, the skills, the perspective and the wisdom to live a life of adventure at any level you wish.

I only read the first four pages to learn that inadvertently, I had made a good decision when I left Port Huron MI for Boulder, CO. Living here allows me to walk out the door and create my own adventures.

I have said to friends that on most trips outside, I see/experience something which 95% of the population of this country will never see. You can, too.

So get off the couch (after you have read Frosty's book) put your feet in a trout stream, on the dirt or snow, or your butt on a bike seat.

We will all be better for it when you do.

Format: Paperback
John Stchur is a successful novelist whose books were singled out for unsolicited praise and endorse-
ment by none other than Stephen King. He is also the holder of two world's records in weightlifting
in the master's division. He has spent a lifetime in absolute awe of Frosty Wooldridge's drive, deter-
mination and "lightness of being."

While Frosty Wooldridge's How To Live A Life Of Adventure is absolutely amazing in its detail, all-
encompassing depth and ability to inspire, it is imperative that first I say something about the man.

Equally amazing.

Now come on . . . who amongst us upon hearing the name "Frosty" wouldn't conjure up an image of someone extraordinary in all the most positive, sun-shiney ways? Well, Frosty Wooldridge actually exceeds those expectations. I guarentee it, and I've known the man a lifetime!

What he won't tell you in this book (too modest) is that in all his travels people naturally flock to him,
surround him whenever possible, and somehow he manages to make each and every one of them feel their very
best about themselves. He is also very deep, very spiritual, in his interpretation and appreciation of his experiences, and that part does come across in the book, in a way that amplifies every adventure so that
one feels it in his or her soul.

There is adventure here to be sure -- from actually getting arrested in Mississippi for "having too much
fun" to facing down an Alaskan grizzly at such close quarters that he could actually smell its breath to
bicycling at an oxygen-starved 16,000 feet in the Chilean Andes and glancing sideways to discover a giant
condor with a twelve-foot wingspan accompanying him just off his left handlebars, there . . . IS . . .

Format: Paperback
My wife always says, "You're actions speak so loudly I can't hear what you're saying." This is, of course, a brief critique of a person's life that is not congruent. In other words, saying one thing and doing another. This is not the cloth Mr. Wooldridge is cut from. This book is a commentary of Mr. Wooldridge's own life. In other words, he doesn't say one thing and then do another. This book, this man, is the real deal. A class act.

If you've ever entertained the thought of doing something you've never done, gone places you've never been to, or contemplated amping up your life in any one of a number of outdoor adventures, you need this book. Learn how to dream and live large. Expand your awareness of the power of nature and see the world through brand new eyes. Soon, your thoughts will change from, "I don't know if I can?" to "I know I can do this!"

Mr. Wooldridge teaches you how to see the world around you through the eyes of a child. This book is a reflection of the awe, suspense, and grandeur of being fully immersed in life. You won't be able to put it down.

Format: Paperback
The number one thing I admire about this author is that, not only does he believe in the things he writes about, but he ACTS on them. It's easy to jump on the bandwagon and talk about doing this and doing that, but Mr. Wooldridge is a person who genuinely shares with us actions that he incorporates into his own life. He's the real deal. This book, in particular is mind-blowing. Whether you're into the types of adventures he's into or not, it doesn't matter. What matters is that Mr. Wooldridge knows this and realizes that it's not about everyone doing what HE likes, but rather, each of us finding our OWN passion and acting on it. This is why this book is absolutely for EVERYONE. And, it's not like some books that throw out a bunch of advice at people, with no real plan or program. Mr. Wooldridge offers constructive ideas that are basically foolproof, as long as you are willing to go on this journey with him. Trust me, if you're looking to change your life and find a "You" that you didn't think existed, buy the book and hop on for the ride of your life. -Susan Szollosi

Format: Paperback
This is a great book, whether you're one who has already been adventurous or whether you're one to start today. Frosty writes this book describing many of his own adventures. It's fascinating and will keep you reading. All along the way, he gives you great advice on how to plan your own adventure. I highly recommend this for all who want to add adventure to their lives and for those who may just want to read about some wonderful true stories of exploration.
