In August of 2013 The Provo Bros traveled deep into the Bolivian Rainforest with 2 goals in mind: To find fresh powder in the Andes Mountains, and to catch a Golden Dorado in the worlds largest river, the Amazon. Lets be honest, these are not the goals of a mere mortal. If you are not familiar with the “Provo Bros”, Ian and Neil could be the coolest brothers on earth. They have dedicated their lives to pursuing their passions, and continue to push the limits in both the fishing and ski/snowboard industries. Luckily for us, they carry a camera along on their adventures.

In a guest article for Goal Zero, Neil talks about the fruition of the trip. “At first I thought Ian was crazy, but the more we looked into it I was quickly convinced. Soon enough the plan came to life, and we were on a small bush plane headed deep into the Jungle. The trip evolved into something much more then just a fly fishing and ski trip. We learned so much about local people and places they lived. Being the first time traveling outside of the country for me, it was an eye opening adventure to say the least. All that is left are the memories created and the videos and photos to remind us. I am more fired up to go travel to far off places, not only to go ride or fish, but to see the way people live outside of our little box called home.” - Neil Provo

Going on a crazy adventure is not always about finding the freshest powder, or the biggest fish... Sometimes its just about the experience. The people you meet, the places you get to see, and the journey itself is what will be remembered. When it comes to adventure, set your goals high, bring a camera and sunscreen, oh and also a badass brother if you have one.
