Adventurer Timmy O'Neill's Idea of Wild Love

Aug 28, 2012
Outside Magazine

Of course adventurer Timmy O'Neill's musings about love include phrases like the "karmic boomerang of love" and have him talking about the color of the line between the black and the white in the yin and yang. O'Neill, who travels the world slacklining, kayaking Class V rapids, and climbing, has a reputation as a goofball, a do-gooder, and a free thinker. The latest video from the Wild Love series gives a solid look into who he is.

The schedule page of also sums him up pretty well. There are two things that reveal his personality. The first is a schedule packed with adventures, do-gooding trips, and speaking engagements. The second is a picture of O'Neill sitting on a plane reading a book, while dressed in superhero garb.
