Sometimes it can feel like our fears control us, but feeling the fear and going for it anyway can make you feel unstoppable. When I was a kid, I was fearless.

This past week my family and I took a 3-day trip hiking into Zealand Falls Hut in the White Mountains.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough – at 82 years old, Dale is working on setting the world record to be the oldest person to complete the mission.
