Mammoth Cave National Park Kentucky 2017

In 2010 we were denied entry into Mammoth Cave and left the park with the first ‘No’, of the two total, in Ahab’s traveling career. After many years of planning, we were granted access to this amazing place! In the process, we really got to know a number of the park rangers involved with the care of this park and have an even bigger appreciation and better understanding for the parks service because of it.


Sometimes in life you are not going to be able to accomplish your goals instantly and you have to work even harder to achieve those that are out of reach… even if it takes 7 years!!!

TEDxAkron 2017

I remember telling Ahab’s origin story in my dorm room to the first person who ever asked, before we had stories of our own to share. I remember the last person I told this story to, who heard about the fifteen years since. I also remember every single story in between. I remember the day we added the goal to speak at a TEDx to Ahab’s List, and how out of reach it felt at the time. Cheers to the people of Akron for supporting that our idea is worth spreading. I will always remember the day we crossed this goal off!
