Extreme Adventures are certainly not for everyone—you have to be prepared to face any kind of challenge, whether you are cruising at 40,000 ft., at mach. 90, diving with great whites or climbing the highest peaks in the world. No matter what your goals are, nature remains the ultimate benchmark of what we can achieve as human beings.
An Extreme Adventure reveals exactly who you are, demanding the most of your physical, psychological and perhaps even spiritual selves.

Tune into WRHU 88.7 today from 4:30 pm- 5:30 pm! Tim Healy, the host of The Profit Express, will be interviewing adventurer, Tom Fabbri, who has just returned from Antarctica. Tom will share the story of his climb to Mt. Vinson Massif!
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” and so does a 16,067 foot summit climb. In less than two weeks, I will be embarking on such a journey, but the preparations began about a year ago. Every mountaineering expedition has a season. The climbing season for Mt. Vinson Massif in Antarctica begins in November and ends in January.
Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa, is located just over 211 miles south of the equator in Tanzania. It is a great mountain to begin one’s quest for the biggest mountaineering challenge on Earth. It has three dormant volcanic cones named Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira that are often snow covered and not without its own list of dangers. This is where I begin my journey of climbing the highest mountains on each of the seven continents, otherwise known as the Adventure Grand Slam.
