Podcast Name.png

Interviews with extraordinary people who have forged their own way and succeeded, will succeed, or barely lived to tell the tale, people who have had unique experiences that the listeners can benefit from, people who aim high and go for it, who are neither afraid to dream nor to risk it all to chase the dream. Eccentrics are those that live outside the norms of society, that make their own rules, set their own standards, and design their own lives. I ask questions about how they developed the dream, how the got started, pitfalls they saw and avoided, how they developed necessary skills and knowledge, how they stay sharp and ahead of the game, how they plan to succeed or continue to succeed. It's all about helping us learn from their successes and failures. Remember, foolish people keep making the same mistakes, smart people learn from their mistakes and successes, and extraordinary people learn from the mistakes and successes of both themselves and of others. That is what Dream Chasers and Eccentrics is all about!

Ep. 38, Ryan DeLena, a Troubled Childhood Saved By Adventure

Ryan DeLena is currently studying at Northern Vermont University. He was pictured on the cover of Backcountry Ski Maps (2020) and has climbed and skied throughout the United States, and in Canada, Chile, Argentina, Svalbard, and Antarctica. Ryan is also a skilled rock climber and avid hiker.

As a child, Ryan had difficulty controlling his emotions and was placed in therapeutic schools that relied on detrimental methods of behavior modification such as physical restraint. Nothing helped, from a team of doctors to heavy medication. Then in 2010, Ryan was voluntarily committed to a mental hospital for further evaluation. His parents Rob and Mary Beth were counseled to place me in a group home. They refused.

Two years earlier, after an impulsive decision to take him skiing, his father discovered a different child than the version experts were so sure about. By his second day of skiing, Ryan was executing advanced runs, and with each conquest in the winters that followed, his father began to question the path laid by the professionals paid to judge Ryan. He later convinced Ryan's mother to fight the medical and educational complexes over Ryan's care and school placement, and together they fostered the freedom Ryan needed to pursue his dream of becoming a professional ski mountaineer.

We talk about out-of-bounds skiing in Vermont, becoming an outdoor adventure guide, learning to ski, skiing in Antarctica, how skiing changed his life, theraputic schools with restraints, prescription drugs, the book he and his father wrote "Without Restraint," skiing in Big Sky, avoiding drugs and alcohol, breaking the law in search of adventure, and healthy outlets for the same, finding contentment, fear, bucket-list adventure destinations, and more.

For nearly four decades, Jim Abernethy has been running large predatory sharks & large aquatic wildlife expeditions with nature lovers, film crews and professional photographers, while respectfully not interfering with the wildlife.

The interview achieved all my goals. When I went to the Bahamas soon after, I encountered a large hamerhead shark, and instead of being terrified, it was a fantastic wildlife encounter. Hopefully the interview will have the same effect on you.
