I pulled my truck out of the garage, loaded my bike and waited for Tom and Jared to arrive… we headed out of town, took a right on Bear Basin Road, drove up past the corrals, through the four-way, and parked near the fork in the road.

You don't have to live in or visit McCall to live the McCall Life (though it helps). But, you do have to commit yourself to pursuing everyday adventure ... taking, no making, time to unplug, de-stress and focus on those things you dream about.
McCall Life magazine, website, e-newsletter and social media celebrates stories of folks around the globe who are pursuing the McCall Life - and, even better, trying to pass it down. So take a moment to start a subscription and, if you want to share, upload your story. We'd love to share it with others who are looking for ideas and inspiration to do something just a bit out of the ordinary, maybe even a bit scary.
