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. read less

He began using MTN Ops Ammo to replace a meal a day and kept the rest clean. he used MTN Ops ignite to keep energy levels up.  He found some motivational people in Eric Chesser, and Weston McArthur (Rise and Shed) that were doing what he had always dreamed of doing. In three months he had lost 70 lbs, was sober and had finally spent the time in the mountains like he had always wanted to. He became obsessed, you could say, with shed hunting and began finding sheds he had always dreamed of. He somehow in this journey became a content creator.
