Microadventure Brainstorm: Stand Up Paddleboard Across 26 mile Lake Dillion, CO USA

lake-dillon-reservoirI’m excited to announce I have another #microadventure turning it’s wheels in my head. For those of you who are part of the Microadventure community (and if you’re not I urge you to join!) and for those who love the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding, I think you’ll get a kick out this.


There’s a lake in Summit County, Colorado (this is where famous ski resorts like Vail and Breckenridge can be found). It’s maximum length is 26 miles long. Of course, it only makes logical sense to SUP across it, right?! Right.

SUPing has been one of my favorite sports since my early twenties. There’s something about going the distance by paddle, standing tall, looking outward before you, as you watch the world slowly drift by you.

Being I’m spending a large part of the spring and summer in Colorado working on a few other projects in the pipeline, I of course have to bring a few of these microadventures into my own backyard. That’s what got me into microadventure in the first place: I had just moved back to the US after a year away in China in 2010 and my wanderlust starting to get bad – real bad. I needed to move. I needed to go. I need to get the hell out of Dodge. Microadventures satisfy that craving. They’re visions quests. They’re mentally and physically exhausting and stimulating and empowering. They make you test yourself and push yourself. And they allow for time to slow down so that at least every now and then in this crazy, busy, hustle-bustle world we live in we can get present and take the world in every now and again.

I’ll of course be documenting and sharing the adventure with camera and film.

Would love to hear any of you upcoming microadventure ideas, including those that might involve Stand up Paddleboarding.




About Lauren Rains

Life gets pretty f*cking nuts sometimes, doesn't it? Every day I wake up more to myself and more to this world. This website is an expression of that.

Space Travelers is multi-layered exploration of our existence here on this rock we call Earth. We're going to talk about the matrix, UFOs, and astral travel, and explore our awakening into the divine masculine and feminine. We'll discover our bodies both the physical and subtle body. We'll contemplate the sacredness of mother earth and the concept of who/what the hell made this place in the first place?

I also aim to keep this website rooted and grounded, referring to topics that are effecting us in the here and now, such as fighting against the oppression of women worldwide, pealing away layers of social conditioning greedy capitalists are using to turn us into consumers, and navigating this insane technological revolution before the AI take over. I can geek out on consciousness up in space all day, but life happens here on the ground and this is the time we were born into.

This website is about integrating into our full human experience, aligning with ourselves and with each other, shedding skins and transcending into the unfolding layers of ourselves.

My wish for you, and for myself, is to unfold and evolve into our highest selves. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We need not sell our souls to the status quo.

I'm on the journey too. I write this blog to speak to others who are waking up, or who desire to wake up. Because we can't do this alone.
