We’re Paul Lieto & Susan Barrows. We started Downshift Adventures (formerly Dirty Good Co.) to chronicle our personal journey of adventure and wellness.

It continues as a resource to educate and encourage aging (well worn) athletes, and those who’ve struggled with depression / anxiety, to embrace circumstances -> downshift, get dirty and rediscover vitality.

About Downshift Adventures

We’re here to help you get outside. No FOMO, FKTs, or KOMs. Just a downshifted “do what we’re capable of doing” approach to adventure and athletics.
