We are “Gentleman Adventurers”. Men who hunger for travel, adventure, discovery and exploration. In this modern era, many thirst for the stories and adventures similar to the likes of Hillary, Scott, Shackelton, and Morgan. There are some who seek out the big adventures still, but we would offer, why wait for only those big or once-in-a-lifetime moments?
Adventure and exploration can come at any time in your life. For some, the hunger for adventure comes on early, but it can start at any stage and for any means level.
The Gentleman Adventurer’s Club (GAC) celebrates taking initiative and creating our own adventures. As products of a modern age, the desire for adventure and exploration lurks just below the surface for many men. The GAC is dedicated to promoting, creating, and most importantly taking part in, adventures of our own making. And in these pages, presenting the journals of those adventures.
The GAC wants to encourage you through example. Push you toward your own exploration of our world. Mark Twain famously is quoted, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”.
The GAC will bring you along on our adventures, present and past. Some big, and some small. And some, we will experience from our armchairs, like a great glass of scotch or a finely turned letter from a friend. Regardless of scope, the GAC invites you to follow along. We hope to inspire you to embark on your own adventures. “Adventure is not outside man; it is within” – George Eliot.
With our toasting box open, we raise a glass to adventure and exploration, to salute those that inspire us to explore, and in some way, follow in their footsteps.
Welcome to the Gentleman Adventurer’s Club.
