Bigger Experiences and the Meaning of Adventure
Ingman, Benjamin C.
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, v17 n4 p338-352 2017
This study is a phenomenological portraiture of an adventurer that explores the meanings of the adventure experience. Through interview and observation, I reveal four thematic meanings of the adventure experience for the research participant: solitude and camaraderie; escape; challenge; and living life. The implications of these findings for adventure education are discussed.
