When Rafael Ortiz relocated from his home in Mexico to the Columbia River Gorge near the border of Washington and Oregon, it was with good reason. The region offers plenty of opportunities to participate in a greater variety of outdoor activities. And while we generally prefer a quality-over-quantity approach to sports, sometimes it's not a bad idea to pack in the fun.

That's exactly what Ortiz did on one day earlier this month, squeezing four adventure sport sessions into a mere 12 hours. See it all in the video below and check out his busy schedule for the day under that.
