2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year. Voting for the People's Choice Award will close on Wednesday of this week (January 18) with the winner being announced in a few weeks time.
In case you have forgotten who the nominees are, you can meet all the adventurers, and get a rundown of their amazing accomplishments, by clicking here. And after you've selected your favorites, you can cast your vote (once per day!) by clicking here.
I'm not going to reveal my personal pick for Adventurer of the Year, but I can tell you that this is a particularly strong group of candidates. I also like that they represent a variety of outdoor pursuits ranging from mountaineering to paddling to long distance hiking, and more. This diversity makes it even more challenging to select one overall, which is why it has been great that we can vote more than once!
It should be fun to see who ends up coming out on top.
