Over the years I've been enthralled by the outdoors and the relationships that it's brought me. One of the most significant has been with my best friend Chad Kendrick, with @treelineoutdoors. He's currently losing a battle to ALS and we are about to drop a new GoFundMe where I'm calling on everyone to help save this beautiful man's life. For his newborn son, his lovely wife, and for himself. If we do this, earth wins. It's better when he's here. Details coming. Huge thank you! . The 'giant bearded' man in this footage is him, and the music.. small beard is my cousin @davi_smiles ha! Anyhow the amazing song was written for our film Still Wild, that IS real and coming out so soon. We need you all, and can't thank you enough. More soon!
Spiritual. A glorious word that describes this quiet moment between myself and this giant. For me he is the soul of the forest and symbol of strength and resilience. As he faded into the forest like a ghost through darkness, I couldn't help but feel incredibly connected to this earth. Much like our ancient ancestors once we're. Humbling
Witnessing the world like this just fuels my addiction for the outdoors. Silence then a good ol adventure yell, yeww!! Humbling
Standing amongst giants... More like crying amongst giants. Who's with me?! Be strong now.
A technique I use to really zone out and absorb a moment... I write a list of all the sounds that I hear. It's pretty surprising what makes up a special place, it's never just visual.
I'm out here in the gorgeous Oregon desert. This place is littered with these giant explosion craters or volcanic maars. Believed to have formed some 14,000 to 18,000 years ago near an ancient basin lake. Check this OUT! "Basaltic magma intruding near the surface flashed ground water to steam, which blew out overlying rock and soil, along with some juvenile material. As material slid into the hole formed, it closed the vent and the process repeated, eventually forming the huge hole." SO RAD! . Can you see my truck?
In the last 4 years I've covered over 200,000 miles of roads all shapes, sizes, in all conditions. That includes my Jeep almost going off a cliff with me in it, snow covered dirt roads reaching almost 3 feet, and miles and miles of empty desert track in the newish Tacoma. It's the vehicle that is just one of the many stages of adventure. I'm so grateful for all my experiences out here and the memories that are piling up. See you out here!
