L. Renee Blount believes in “endless curiosity.” That guiding philosophy led her to come up with the goal of trying something new every month. When Blount told us about her challenge, we thought, Now that’s something we can get behind. So she and Outside teamed up with the folks at Topo Designs to bring you Beyond Familiar, a video series about “the journey, the joy, and the try.” Follow along as Blount explores activities that she’s never tried before. In the first episode, she learns to ride a Onewheel board amid the redwoods of Santa Cruz, California. Learn more about Blount in this recent Outside article.
