Eric Weihenmayer might be blind but he knows where he’s going. The SCARPA athlete, author and motivational speaker has been a busy man. Taking a disability and turning it into virtue has taken him adventuring all around the world, and he’s now leading others to do the same. On the road much of the time, his schedule is rife with speaking engagements or planning his next opus with Soldiers to Summit, an outreach program for disabled vets. We were able to get him on the phone for a hot second to talk about the current state of Weihenmayer affairs.
