What is Finding Adventure? Finding Adventure is a Very Local original series about unique outdoor adventures in cities across the U.S. Join host Kinga Philipps as she travels across the country to help individuals break out of their comfort zones and explore the outdoors. Along the way, Kinga challenges each guest to try new things and to experience how stepping outside of the norm can be scary, but ultimately amazing and transformative.

Glenda Macatangay has conquered her career and is a single mom to four kids. But when it comes to being comfortable in the outdoors, she isn’t as confident. Kinga meets up with Glenda in Sacramento, California, to introduce her to the wonders of the wilderness.
