They have seen the wide open spaces as an invitation to explore, to create, to live. Their outdoors encompasses the city streets as well as the mountains, the oceans, the rivers. Their adventures have been real as well as imagined, the stuff of legend; a stroll in the forest; a retreat to the woods; a way of defying gravity; musical notes on a page.
Beneath the pavement, they realise, lies the beach. And inside the city the wilderness remains.
Some of these unwitting revolutionaries were simply sportsmen - young men exploring the boundaries of their freedom, dancing with the elements and almost by accident taking the human race further. But we know also their particular, maverick, creative, rebellious engagement with the mountains, the ocean and the earth gave birth to a way of seeing the world that resonates more strongly than ever.
Its this boundless aspect to the culture of the outdoors that The Acid Rambler celebrates – creatively imagining human engagement with the elemental forces around them – and redefining the meaning of living here, now, under the ceaseless sky.
