Heliconia, the video production company behind the award winning tv Epic Trails, Facing Waves and Chad Hoover Fishing, is excited to announce that its newest series, Great Family Adventure, is set to premiere on Bally Sports Network June 26th.

Great Family Adventure is an exciting fast paced TV series that follows World Champion kayakers Nick Troutman and Emily Jackson on a epic family road-trip. The Troutman-Jackson family live on the road for most of the year, exploring the country while homeschooling their two kids (7 and 4 years old), meeting unique people, paddling wild rivers, exploring hiking trails, mountain biking rad single track, swimming in the ocean and camping out under the stars. Along the way, they experience new cultures and help their two young children discover adventures of a lifetime.

In the premiere episode viewers will catch a glimpse into the daily lives of this thrill-seeking, fun-loving, adventurous family as they prepare for their annual road trip. The episode introduces the story of how Nick and Emily came to be and why they have decided to pack up their belongings and live on the road nine months out of the year. As we follow the family, we see how Nick and Emily juggle and balance their own active, busy, competition-filled schedules while being hands-on parents raising two young children.  

“I don’t know what people think when they see us on the road,” reflects co-host Nick Troutman, “We’ve got this truck, trailer, bikes, boats, all sorts of gear… kids and dogs running in and out. It probably looks a bit crazy at times, but for us it’s just normal and we love it.”

There will be plenty of opportunities to catch the crazy as Great Family Adventure is distributed to over 100 million US households across the US on the 27 regional sports networks that make up Bally Sports Network as well as Outside TV. Between airings, viewers may access inspiring content on the Great Family Adventure’s Facebook page and Instagram account.
