Episode 13: Aar Jay Soria and the Fool’s Traverse

Almost There Adventure Podcast

Jun 2 2020 • 47 mins

In this episode, fools, tunes, traverses, and the power of beer. We talk to Ricardo “Aar Jay” Soria, trail runner, hiker, peak bagger and organizer of the “Fool’s Traverse.”

The initial interview was recorded pre-pandemic, so we did a follow-up chat with him to learn how the Fool’s Traverse and his own adventure plans have been impacted by COVID-19, that appears on after the initial interview.
