NBSV 083: Mountaineer Jason Addy on being vegan since 1992, and his self-propelled mountain treks



Jason Addy is a mountaineer living in Powell River, BC. Vegan since 1992, he enjoys doing fully self-propelled mountaineering trips from home to home. I.e. from home to the mountain (usually on a bike), scaling said mountain, and then cycling back home. Jason is a life-long cyclist, and he’s currently writing a guidebook to the mountains north of Powell River.


Here’s our discussion:

Important topics and points you don't want to miss:
