Some guys hone their skills so well they are able to perform amazing feats that other mortals have a hard time imagining, much less imagining doing themselves. Such a man is Danny MacAskill. The guy is a Scottish cyclist who can ride a bike anywhere — jumping fences, riding on top of fences. He can bust moves in a city over concrete in ways that you have to watch two or three times just to understand.

Meanwhile, that’s all well and good, but what about outdoor adventure?

We stumbled upon a new Danny MacAskill video that is just too good not to share: Danny MacAskill: The Ridge. It is freaking amazing. First, the cinematography is great, and second, the crazy skill and joy he exudes is something else, too. So what’s the “ridge?”

The Cuillin Ridgeline somewhere near the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Beautiful country . . . and some wicked cool moves that many of us couldn’t do in a pair of hiking boots, much less on a mountain bike. Check it out:

Just get outside and do something. Start there. If you're already passionate about one thing, great -- start doing more things you haven't done before. Use the seasons as a guide -- winter sports in winter, bikes and motorcycles in spring, fish, camp, backpack, hike, climb, paddle in summer, hunt in the fall -- you get the idea. More kinds of experiences, not just one again and again. You'll be surprised at what you can do, what you never thought you would like, and you'll appreciate your world more than ever before. Heck, you'll be a better person -- part of Earth instead of just on it. To get a hold of me, take a "firstnamelastname" guess at
