A Q&A with the Founders of Blue Ridge Outdoors
Each of us seeks out the mountains and the waters of the Blue Ridge for a different reason. Whether we’re searching for solitude or community, a challenge or peace of mind, the outdoors offers a place to individually and collectively connect with something larger than ourselves.
For 25 years, it has been Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s mission to provide inspiring stories from the outdoors for free. What started out as a guide to locally exploring the area surrounding Charlottesville, Va., grew to cover the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions. For our anniversary issue, we talked with BRO founders John Blackburn and Greg Easley about the early days of the magazine and the evolution of outdoor recreation over the last quarter century.
