“A lot of people used to ask me, you know, what would make it worth it? If you could go back and change your accident, would you? And I always try to tell them, if you can make a difference in one person’s life, then it does make it all worth it. You can look back and say maybe that’s why that happened. And so if Chad and I doing this show can really just reach even one person and they can get outdoors and find healing and they can get outdoors and find a new adventure, that’s going to make it all worth it.” — Ashlee Lundvall, co-host of Able Outdoors
