Here at ExWeb, when we’re not outdoors, we get our adventure fix by exploring social media and the wider interweb. Sometimes we’re a little too plugged in, and browsing interesting stories turns from minutes into hours. To nourish your own adventure fix, here’s some of the best links we’ve discovered this week…

One Say More: Everest season may be over but that hasn’t stopped the ongoing analysis of the overcrowding. Writer and alpinist Mark Jenkins suggests some practical solutions.

Moulin Route: Well-known ice climber extraordinaire Will Gadd explores the murky inner workings of the Greenland Ice Cap.

One Small Step: As we approach 50 years since arguably the greatest expedition of all time, the first moon landing, the New York Times canvases the latest books on this famed event.

Women to the Pole: A Smithsonian Magazine podcast on the first all-female, full-length North Pole expedition.

An Extraordinary Life: A look back at the life of Knut Haugland, Norwegian resistance fighter and member of the famous Kon-Tiki expedition.
