PODCAST

Reckoning

Brittney Long

Welcome to RECKONING. Where we stoke a campfire and have real life conversations with old friends, new friends, professionals and shoot the shit. RECKONING is a place for those that want to explore the world. Where friends, professionals and wanders gather around a campfire. Reckoning all things from our outdoor adventures, traveling, hunting, cooking, health, wellness, entrepreneurship, life & more. It's all just a RECKONING. REAL life chats, where we shoot the shit. We have real conversations, ask real questions and get real answers from professionals to our laid back personal conversations too! Where our listeners get to escape to their favorite fire setting through audio with the fire crackling through their speakers. All while they learn, laugh, and/or be inspired to explore.I feel that by hearing real, raw conversations and teachings from others that made a leap to chase their dreams, or go on their adventures, they’ll be encouraged to step out of fear and into faith — and have the tools to do so. Knowing they aren’t alone! Our “unique” time together in the outdoors, the experiences and memories we’ve been able to create by connecting together in nature is what inspired the gist of the podcast. After so many conversations with others, and realizing other people don’t have this with their family, or connection with themselves. Whether this is because us, or our kids are so enticed by technology. I’m unsure, but think this contributes. Maybe it’s that the outdoors: hunting and fishing are becoming a thing of the past (deep eye-roll), OR simply just because someone wants to be out exploring but doesn’t even know where to start. Growing up I would have been considered a tomboy, I love(d) sports, dirt, camouflage, hunting . (Bowhunting was my first love and is still my sweet spot. ) I was lucky enough to have my dad take me on all the hunts! Oftentimes being the only female in camp. . . let alone a little or teenage girl. He took me with pride and confidence in me. I’m no expert but I’m here to learn with you, bring on the experts and ask the questions. Through RECKONING, I’m here to help break the mold of what some may consider to be a thing of the past, and who that person is. To help people connect to themselves and others by stepping away from their technology, fears, intimidation, and into nature. We are the RECKONING.

Solo Female Motorcyclist, Nikki Chamberlain goes across America while camping and discovering what it means to live in each state!
On this week's episode we chat with Nikki Chamberlain, who goes by the alias Kiwi Cruisette on Instagram, she has just wrapped up the trip of a lifetime. After losing her job as part of company wide covid layoffs, she turned this devastating year into an unforgettable journey of discovery, embracing the uncertainty and following a pipe dream. She has spent the last 6 months riding solo across America on her motorcycle, camping in forests, taking the backroads and discovering what it means to live in each of the 48 contiguous states. As an immigrant, she was curious to know what life was like for Americans from all walks of life, so she interviewed locals along the way, asking them for their take on the American Dream. Her interviews, daily vlogs and educational videos are published on her instagram and youtube channel, Lunch Cutter Productions. (We learn what a lunch cutter is!) By sharing her journey and learnings along the way, she hopes to encourage other women to ride and explore - and consider taking up motorcycle camping (aka motocamping) as a way to do both. After all, if you see it, you can be it.   Read the blog & Show Notes.   SHOP Britt & the Guests Favorites!  Mentions in this episode:   NIKKI AKA Kiwi Cruisette on Instagram Youtube channel Hottie AKA Hot Water Bottle with a Sweater!
