Two-time alumnus Bob Foulkes may have been a little late discovering Outward Bound, taking his first course at the age of 46, but nevertheless the experience opened the door to a lifetime of adventures that have energized, enlivened, and enthused him for more than 20 years.
Bob has recently published a book called Off the Couch and Out the Door. In the book, Bob traces his many escapades back to his first adventure with Outward Bound Canada in 1995. Since then Bob has added marathons, triathlons, grand fondos and international travel to exotic locations around the world. The experience is one that many of our alumni can relate to and so we wanted to give each of you the opportunity to purchase Bob’s book (available at the link below, proceeds are being donated back to OBC) and reconnect with your own journey through his story.
Bob recently spoke about the book at a book signing in Ottawa on Monday, March 24th, 2014. The Ottawa Citizen released this great article about the event and published this letter from Bob foulkes after the event.
