What retains you from making an attempt a brand new outside journey?


Tell us what motivates or prevents you from taking up a new outdoor activity

(Heather May | For the Tribune) Adventure awaits, but what’s holding you back? Take our survey to let us know what motivates you to try something new, or what stops you.

Do you feel that itch? It’s the one that makes your skin tingle every year at that time when the sun is shining, the shorts are on and summer is officially on the calendar. It’s the itch to step outside and get away.

But maybe you’ve hiked all the short trails in your area and want to go a little further, maybe even do an overnight trip. Or maybe you’ve been riding your peloton all winter and are now answering the call to see a landscape that isn’t projected onto a screen. Perhaps your goal is to paddle the Great Salt Lake before it becomes a mere puddle.

What, if anything, is stopping you?

We want to know! Tell us by taking our poll here or below, the results of which we’ll share in an upcoming story. And while you wait, keep an eye out for a pumped list of outdoor recreation stories coming to sltrib.com this summer. They will be perfect reading while recovering from climbing Mount Olympus or just putting off mowing the lawn.
