The Path to Mastery is woven with chances for catharsis. In these last days of the year, we're seeking our door to the other side — it may appear hazily in a cave of steam, beneath the frigid splash of a polar plunge, or deep in a temple of the mind.

The Master behind our latest challenge, Ronald Tackmann AKA Ronny Boy, used pen and pencil to create other worlds that matched his desires and moods. "I’ve been all around the world—in my paintings.

In my paintings I’m there.” Now it's your turn. Accept the challenge and take us to your faraway imaginarium.

Ronny Boy became a distinguished prison artist, creating mesmerizing wonderlands he could travel to in his mind. This week's challenge, the Escape Artist, is to create your own imaginarium.

Just pick a faraway, dreamy landscape -- it can be real or imagined -- and linger there, as a scene unfolds. Join the challenge and let your imagination carry you away. ⁠

Friendship is a portal to adventure, daring and dragging each other to new and quixotic frontiers. But distance, time, and distraction can contribute to erosion, allowing even the strongest connections to fray. This week’s Challenge, the Long Lost Buddy, is born out of the idea that there is no statute of limitations on reconnecting. We’re gathering our resolve, and finding our way back to old friends. Head below to take the Challenge.

After hunting through closets and cupboards for unique items to trade in our big Switcheroo, we're looking to take in some fresh air. Voodoo Apples, our next Challenge is a fall classic, and all about unusual ways to experience and experiment with apples.

We picked the brain of maverick cider maker Andy Brennan, known for his "voodoo" theories on wringing potent flavors out of the apple cultivars. Take it on and you may find yourself up a tree, brewing at home, or even bobbing in a barrel.
