This week’s Trail To Adventure! has Gerry’s rendezvous with Ron Vining from the ministry of Polestar Outdoors. This is a group that takes young people on hunting and fishing trips in lieu of their parents, who have no idea how to do outdoor activities, yet the kids want to get started. This ministry was started in Powell, Wyoming where Ron lives, but has expanded to other areas and is making a difference in the lives of these young folks, as the program is set up to present the Gospel and mentor attending youth. Also, they will include the parents if they want to take part and learn how to do these activities, so one day they can join their children on the adventures. Ron shares a story of how there’s been life-changing decisions, and young people benefit with the relationships from adults they connect with.

This week’s Trail To Adventure! interview is with Dr. Danny Faulkner at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky as he shares about  Answers in Genesis ministry’s Planetarium. This museum is a great way to evangelize those who come to visit with you as it’s an apologetic ministry focusing on the importance of the first book of the Bible. Danny is the resident astronomy expert and shares with Gerry and the listeners on the vastness of the Universe, giving an easily understood example to wrap one’s mind around. He also puts a wrench in the gears of those conspiracy believers who say we never went to the moon. Fact is that because of the Apollo Lunar Missions, we now know how far we are from the moon and that the distance is expanding. It is this information that allows us to do backward math calculations to realistically consider the age relationships between the earth and its moon.

This week’s Trail To Adventure! was recorded in the middle of Lake Michigan and was a first time experience for Gerry. The guest, Captain Dan Keating shares his life story with Gerry, as the two motor in after a fine day of fishing on this Great Lake. Dan tells about how he rebelled against God and his family values; and what took place that eventually brought him to pray, asking Jesus to be his Savior. This story includes becoming a charter captain on Lake Michigan and writing a book about salmon fishing. From that book, he did a DVD on fishing, which included his testimony and eventually wrote the book, Angling Life, subtitled "A Fisherman Reflects on Success, Failure, and the Ultimate Catch." The program calls on listeners to do some kind of outing where they bring and pay the way for another else!

On the Trail To Adventure! Gerry is joined by the Heislers, at the tail end of the Family Fun Fossil Hunt that God’s Great Outdoors does in Ohio near the Creation Museum each year. Jon & Deb reflect on a time in Canada each summer at Rushing Wind Retreat Center in Ontario, an hour above International Falls, Minnesota. They share how they’re ministered to at the event, even with the special attention required because of Jon’s health issues. This includes full access to time out on the water in God’s beautiful Creation as Jon’s health has him using a wheeled walker. The couple tells how the owners of Rushing Wind, Arnie and Dee Wolf have a fleet of pontoon boats, so everyone can be out on the water. Jon also tells of a wounded warrior (style) event there that is helping Vets find Jesus and heal from PTSD.

This week’s interview is with Mark Looy as he shares about the Answers in Genesis ministry and Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. A great way to evangelize those who come to visit and Mark relates about this apologetic ministry focusing on the importance of the first book of the Bible. The two also talk about the Ark Encounter located 40 miles away from the Museum in Williamstown, Kentucky.

These attractions are an hour’s drive from God’s Great Outdoors Family Fun Fossil Hunt’s in August. This happens in Ohio and Dr. John Whitmore, who teaches young earth geology at Cedarville University comes and shares with the fossil hunters, discussing the proof Noah’s flood.

On this Trail To Adventure! God’s Great Outdoors Fun Family Fossil Hunt is the topic of the program as Gerry interviews Dr. John Whitmore about this adventure. (The location is stroller and wheelchair accessible as well, it clearly is open to the entire family.)The event takes place annually in August, and those attending can keep the fossils that they find. How hard is it to find these fossils? Dr. John Whitmore, who teaches young earth geology at Cedarville University, has even had two blind students take his class and they are able to find fossils at this Ohio location. The two discuss all the evidence of Noah’s flood, and how there are scientists who misinterpret many of the facts of this biblical event.

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Gerry is visiting with Dr. Richard Swenson in Wisconsin and the two are talking about Intelligent Design on this week’s Trail To Adventure! The truth is there is more chance mathematically that your car happened by accident over hundreds of millions of years, then just your eyeballs having evolved and how they works with your entire body? This is just one of the things that Dr. Richard Swenson shares in the interview with Gerry as they discuss this topic and Dr. Swenson’s book, “More Than Meets the Eye”. Having taught surgery at the University of Madison, Wisconsin, and having minored in physics, this interview is jam-packed with information that declares that we have a Creator God.

The topic on this week’s Trail To Adventure! is on Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Gerry visits with Billy (Catfish) Parker and his wife Laura at the C’Meer Deer booth during the annual Archery Trade Assn. Show that was held in Indianapolis, Indiana in February of 2015. Both of these outdoor recreationalists share stories of the adventures and the battle that is encountered by a tiny insect at least eight months of the year. Ticks! Laura has been infected with both Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, but early detection helped in her treatment being a quick ordeal. Billy however, went a number of years before his Lyme Disease was discovered causing extended and daily treatments that lasted many months. Their hope is as they tell this story; is it will help keep others from having to go through the same mess they experienced!

A family tragedy is part of the story on this Trail To Adventure! as the guest will give the listeners real safety thoughts to consider. Kenny Ratliff begins this interview by describing great times in the outdoors with his dad and reflects on how he introduced him to spending time afield and stream. This later in his life became where he directed his vocation and passed up opportunities to wear a suit and tie to work. Kenny then goes into the story of how on Father’s Day some years back, and at the same time, the family was celebrating his dad’s and his youngest brother’s birthdays, something terrible happened. Kayaking on an area river, both of these two loved ones were taken home to be with the Lord because of a boating accident. A sad event to be sure, but one we can all learn from to be safe in our future recreation on the water.
