To the Wheeler family, friends, and readers who want to learn a little about a man who gave so much... Today marks the two year anniversary of the passing of MSG Josh Wheeler; our hearts and thoughts are with you.
We live in a world of a 15 minute attention span... but the examples of Josh’s heroism, courage, sense of humor, and professionalism will remain with those who knew him well for generations. Over the past several years we've taken many good friends to a place we dedicated to Josh's memory. His story passes along to commemorate his courage and sacrifice, then a waterfall rappel commemorates his life and adventurous spirit.
For those that are unfamiliar with Josh's story, there are a few great articles for you to check out.
First, Esquire.com and Ford wrote an amazing article about Josh in ,"The Toughest 2015" http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a40361/the-operator-joshua-wheeler/?src=social-text
And, in Popular Mechanics, another great article,
In addition to what you will read about him, Josh was a professional in the areas of mountaineering, rope access, and rope rescue. He was incredibly proficient with a, “just rappel faster and you wont fall as far", mentality, a philosophy that suited him well.
We've also found companies on Instagram keeping memories alive and supporting families left behind like @forcenetworkfund and @cxcfoundation, check them out and see what you can do to help....

Afternoon workout! If I would have known how much time to workout, and do basically whatever I want, I would have retired years ago!! Also the stringer doesn’t cover much, EXCEPT my not yet ripped abs...which is why I like it!
