Dream trip reflection (video)

My dream is to travel & explore as many unique destinations while I have the energy to do so. Some are main stream but many off the beaten path and take some effort to reach. And in this one, crazy life I fully intend to reach beyond that which is normal and seize the opportunity to do the extraordinary.

Nature and exploration bring me an indescribable joy. Why don’t we all seek out more experiences that speak to our heart and make us yearn for more?

Five months ago I set out on a journey to disconnect and refocus. A wide open slate.

The fun details:

  • 94 days
  • 18 states
  • 23 national parks
  • 45 national monuments
  • 140 stops
  • 486 miles hiked
  • 9,911 miles driven

From the history of Mt Rushmore to the cliff tops of Yosemite NP to the snowy ledges at Mt Rainer NP to the red rock canyons in Sedona to the suspension bridge over the Grand Canyon floor to the stunning natural bridges in Arches NP to the mind blowing caves in Carlsbad Caverns NP….. there are so many stories to be told and gems to immerse in that I’m addicted to the great unknown.

I rarely do self videos but I was so in my element on my last, crazy 10 mile trek in the Sedona cliffs that I realized this adventure was even more impactful that I had even imagined it would be.

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
