Lonnie Bedwell - Without Sight, But Not Perspective - Lonnie Bedwell is a veteran who's overcome a severe injury and come out the other end a better version of himself. A hunting accident instantly took Lonnie's sight. Rather than become a shell of his former self, Lonnie took on the blindness like it was a gift. He was named National Geographic's Adventurer of the Year in 2015.
He's kayaked down the world's craziest rivers, skis her most challenging mountains and smiling the whole time.

Pete A Turner chatted with Lonnie on BIDS and asked, could he have been where he is today, without the accident? Is it possible that losing his sight actually unlocked the best version of himself?
