Team Member Summer Adventures: Joshua Fogg
Catch up with PSIA-AASI National Team members as they share their summer adventures and how it keeps them on their game for winter. Here’s how PSIA Alpine Team member Joshua Fogg spent his summer.
What’s been your big summer adventure?
My wife and I spent three weeks in Mongolia on a 10-day mountain bike expedition and a five-day fishing trip. In between tours, we visited Buddhist monasteries, museums, and cultural landmarks, including spending three days in the capital city Ulaan Baatar for their national holiday Naadam.
It had been two years since they celebrated in person, so it was a huge event for the country. We attended the opening ceremonies, which were similar to a Olympic opening ceremonies and included speeches, musical performances, acrobatics, fireworks, demonstrations of horseback riding games, and more. The national games included a 40km horse race, a two-day wrestling competition, and archery.
Why was this on your to-do list?
We originally planned the trip for summer 2020, and it was delayed for two years. Mountain biking was a great way to see the countryside, visit with locals, and spend time together. The group included my brother-in-law and people from Thailand, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.
