Recently the first #LiveAWildLife twitter chat went live! It was such a great turn out! Teton Sports, known for hosting the super popular chat #HikerChat, was awesome as co-host. I want to thank them again for helping to get the word out! I love bringing together such an awesome community of outdoor adventurers from all walks of life.
