I didn’t even think it was physically possible, when the Higginbotham brothers @byhandproject told me they were going to prone paddle from Alaska to Mexico...unassisted, virtually unsupported, no corporate sponsors, just each other and a goal. Not only did they accomplish their mission but they documented the process, the good, the bad, the hilarious, and the heavy. The objective was to survive the hectic journey, but what they found was an even deeper awareness of who they are- which is the best part of any adventure. My good friend and director Kellen Keene are seeking to share it all with us through their film.
.
Their film is almost finished and needs a final push from people that still believe in good old fashioned storytelling. Check it out at @byhandproject and learn how you can help out!

@codytownsend So bad ass.

@roam An absolute adventure!

Our happiness is so cheap. What I mean by that is that despite the often overwhelming waves of praise we seek out we tend to focus on the one negative thing. Social media is a great example .. when you share something near and dear to your heart, possibly even opening up about something personal- instead of seeing all the good, we tend to hone in on just the negative comments or those that may not agree.. as if everyone is supposed to? This happens so often in life as well. You can go to great lengths to have a perfect day.. amazing breakfast, favorite music, exercise.. whatever -  And the first person to cut you off in traffic steals your attention and your “happiness”. Just something to think about as you go about your day looking for positive, rather than negative.

Oh and this photo .. I just like it.

Can tripods be better? I have always had a love/ hate relationship with tripods. Two years ago I sat with my friend Peter discussing all the issues I I found with the bulky modern day design & he told me about an idea he had that at the time I thought was impossible. Well today is the day, The Kickstarter for the completely revolutionized tripod is here and I am psyched. I have been keeping my lips sealed for the last few months & I’m so stoked to finally share what I have been using the last few months.
Get to know @peakdesign ‘s completely rebuilt from the ground up tripod in my bio link.
Smaller, lighter with about a hundred more improvements.

I find great peace knowing there are cultures where things like morning rituals & friendship are still a priority. These two fisherman were here well before the sunrise simply talking & prepping tackle like it was another day, paying no regard to the beauty of the sunrise over Mt Fuji. . 
It felt like a good personal reminder to myself, someone who has prioritized work and chasing beauty like this over friendship for many years.

@cristinamittermeier The idea is to avoid having your picture taken with a captive animal. Check out @natgeo story on the horrors of this trade

Komorebi -translates to “sunshine filtering through leaves.” Few languages give such attention to detail and description as Japanese. That word sums up this experience climbing in the Japanese forest pretty well

@kpunkka Nice one 👍🏻

Hokkaido is the snowiest place on earth. Attempting to surf in this region is a mixture of luck and near perfect planning. 
We sadly found neither despite driving 48 hours to find it. The sea ice was the barrier between nonexistent surf.

@prana @ericarobbin That sounds delicious 🍧

Never envisioned when I was 16 years old I would meet the love of my life. Thanks for being the alpaca raising, kid wrestling, horse & animal loving wife/ mom that I always dreamt of. For never letting me choose the easy path... and supporting my crazy hair brained ideas. Definitely the only good thing I took away from High School. 
Love you @brea_face Happy Mother’s Day. 
PS - this picture is always my favorite because you are 6 months pregnant with Jeremiah & glowing
