    Adventure Walking and Snowshoeing

    Sponsored by

    Step into the world of Adventure Walking and Snowshoeing at The Boston Outdoor Expo!

    Have you ever been out for a walk, felt the refreshing feeling of your leg muscles being worked, and wished you could do something as healthy for your arms? Adventure walking with poles is an activity that offers a way to boost the health benefits and overall quality of your walking—whether it's your daily stroll or an intense weekend hike.

    So, what exactly is this walking with poles? What does it look like, and how does one start? Adventure walking aims to achieve a more natural walking rhythm rather than an awkward one. To do this, the poles are medium height and lightweight, making it easy to swing them in an alternating pattern to what your feet are doing. To keep your balance on various surfaces, Nordic walking poles come with various tips: rubberized blocky tips for pavement gripping, metal ferrules for rocky or slippery trails, or large compressible tips for shock absorption.

    Visit the Adventure Walking area of the expo and test a pair of poles on our short track and again on the elements we prepared to simulate a trail walk. Adventure walking with poles will provide the stability to navigate anything on the trail or in the urban environment—curbs, no problem; uneven terrain, no problem; roots and rocks, no problem. You will also find demo snowshoes to test out on our simulater snow track.

    Speak with our Adventure Walking experts and Certified Personal Trainers to learn the health benefits of walking with poles.

    At the booth, you will find:
    • Adventure Walking Poles to demo
    • Test track to try walking with the poles
    • Balance elements to test with the poles
    • Registration to take part in a group walk around the convention Center with our certified personal trainer.
    • Registration for a kid's scavenger hunt
    • Demo Snowshoes on our simulated snow

    Even if you don't have any complaints about good old-fashioned, pole-free walking, you'll be surprised by how much walking with poles can add to an excursion. Beyond the better workout—adventure walking engages the entire body—poles can make steep hills and descents more manageable, help you find a natural pace and rhythm, and increase balance and stability on unstable terrain.

    We look forward to educating you on the benefits and fun of Adventure Walking and Snowshoeing.

    Paige Emerson is the founder of Chubby Hiker Reviews, a social media account where she reviews hikes in Maine as someone who is plus sized.

    Arwen Turner

    Arwen Turner

    Arwen Turner is a fat nature lover, an advocate for increasing outdoor equity, inclusion, and access and the Chief Imagination Officer of Thicket Adventure, a company making comfortable and high-quality true plus-size outdoor apparel. The idea for Thicket came after Arwen went on a body inclusive group hike, met a bunch of badass fat hikers and got really mad about the lack of gear and apparel for larger-bodied outdoorsy (and future outdoorsy) people out there. Arwen is also the executive director of Come Alive Outside, a non profit that partners with healthcare, public health, outdoor recreation, and local businesses to connect individuals, families, and entire communities to the health and wellness benefits of outdoor spaces where they live, work, and play. Arwen loves swimming in lakes, spooky things, woodsy walks, and chocolate cupcakes.

    Andrea Bailey

    Andrea Bailey

    Andrea’s journey in the human services field began during her teenage years when she
    discovered her natural inclination towards supporting and caring for others. As the friend who
    always offered a listening ear and a comforting presence, she realized that her passion lay in
    helping people navigate through life’s challenges.
    Andrea also became increasingly aware of the importance and power of nature and movement
    on the mind and body. She has completed numerous Obstacle Course Races, Spartan and
    GoRuck Endurance events including the Spartan Agoge. Andrea is a Licensed Mental Health
    Counselor, Reiki Master and currently the only Mindfulness Based Ecotherapist in MA. Out of
    the experience of the Agoge and Andrea’s formal education, she developed and guides

    Scott currently resides in Boulder, CO with his wife, Jenny, daughter, Raven, and son, Evergreen.

    Meg Stewart

    Meg Stewart

    Meg Stewart is an outdoor enthusiast who is passionate about making the outdoors accessible to all. Meg grew up on the ocean pursuing surfing, sea kayaking, lifeguarding, windsurfing and paddle boarding. It was only in her 20’s that she ventured North toward the mountains when it quickly became apparent to trust that it is never too early or late to start exploring.

    Immersing herself into the wilderness she discovered a youthful spark within that craved the depth of the outdoors in a different capacity. The mountains simultaneously mesmerized and fascinated her. They soon became a spirit cure all while the ocean remained a soul elixir. Now at 35, she has become a dedicated hiker and completed several rounds of the NH48 and NE67. She is working on her ADK high peaks, the NEU8 and continues to visit a few National Parks each year.

    Meg obtained her MHA and has spent almost two decades in healthcare leadership. During that time, she has dedicated most of her free time focusing on wellness and outdoor education. In her undergrad years she modeled her thesis on reducing plastic use and spent her time in and after college teaching people how to minimize their everyday toxin use in personal care products by familiarizing themselves with ingredients. Meg is a Wilderness First Responder (WFR), volunteered on Search and Rescue, Backcountry and Trail Steward, Leave No Trace Certified, Certified Yoga Teacher, DEI and human rights advocate. Meg loves to help people find hidden gem locations and give people the confidence to head into the backcountry with skill and prepare them with what to pack and what to bring to ensure safety while not overpacking. Her mission in healthcare has always been to provide access to care and she feels the same in the backcountry setting with access to the outdoors in a way that is feasible.

    On the trails she discovered many in need of help and is always happy to learn from others as well as share her knowledge on how to stay safe in the backcountry and minimize the risk of common backcountry injuries (put those selfie sticks away!). Mental health advocacy remains of paramount importance to Meg as she experienced postpartum depression with her first child and went through a divorce. Hiking has been a walking meditation aiding in alleviating stress, fostering an environment of healing and clarity, and elevating endorphin levels. Exploration isn’t always finding the ‘right path’, and sometimes it means we stumble in the darkness, but choosing your own path and making it uniquely your own is how she embraces each day. Hiking and rhythmic movement allows the senses to show up moving the labyrinth of thoughts in the mind to transform into wisdom, presence, and consciousness in the body.

    Meg’s favorite hobbies include ultra-hiking, trail running, cycling, helping children’s groups become assured in their camping and hiking skills while teaching the model of leave no trace, yoga/grounding/breathwork, and paddleboarding. Meg practices Nordic cycles with hot and cold immersion and grounding work as yoga and nature she has found to be the most restorative practices. She is most passionate about spending time with her three little humans and her not so mini goldendoodle (Pemi) who also thinks she is a little human.

    The kindness on the trails and the lessons she’s learned have made her enthusiastic about helping humans of all ages feel safe and prepared in the wilderness. Meg is a self-proclaimed map nerd and states she can be just about mediocre at anything with her most useless skill is that of a human pedometer. Her goal will always be to learn more, teach more, spread more kindness, and grow more while staying connected firmly to her roots as the bold oak tree does.

    Meg is the owner of The Wander Inn, NH (Instagram @wanderinn.nh) and adores listening to her guests’ desires and helping them find their dream hike or finding a remote spot in the wilderness to enjoy and create a unique lifelong memory during their stay.

    Cyril Derreumaux

    Cyril Derreumaux

    French born, now American citizen, Cyril Derreumaux considers himself a citizen of the world. Fluent speaker of 6 languages (and counting!) Cyril is attracted to learning and discovering new cultures and places all the time.

    This natural curiosity of people and places led Cyril to backpack around the world at 25 for one year. With $7,000 and a can-do attitude Cyril embarked on this life changing experience that permanently changed his outlook on life and how he wanted to live it.

    A move to California following his profession in the wine business led Cyril to begin exploring the world of outrigger canoeing and kayaking and reignited a childhood passion for windsurfing and all things water related. He soon began pushing his limits further and further in ultra-endurance water events. A serendipitous find of the Great Pacific Race which advertised “you don’t need to be a rower to row an ocean” led Cyril to embark on his biggest challenge at the time, rowing in a team of 4 men from California to Hawaii which resulted in in a Guinness Record for the fastest ocean rowing crossing of a team in 39 days and again changing Cyril’s perspective on what was possible.

    Always a dreamer, Cyril soon found himself thinking about his next expedition. Inspired by the stories of maverick ocean explorers, Cyril began to plan his biggest expedition to date, crossing the mid pacific on a kayak with solely human power from California to Hawaii.

    Despite delays and a failed attempt, Cyril accomplished this goal in September 2022 reaching Hawaii to become the first 100% human powered kayaker to accomplish such a feat.

    As a member of the famed Explorers Club Cyril continues to dream big, thinking of his next big adventure and encouraging others to do the same. Advocating to “live life to the fullest,” Cyril hopes his adventures inspire others to find their own dream and go after it.

    Cyril is currently working on a book and a documentary chronicling his kayak crossing.
