life in vertical

Long nights this time of year in the Northwest. It’s funny to me that this became such a trend - I started doing this as a way to get a little bit of relief from the constant gloom of winter, it’s good enough light to allow me to read or write in my journal, and it sure is comforting. 

A year ago today my buddy Garrett Danz and I left our homes in Oklahoma with about $800 and the hopes of getting to Washington for a month and making a little film about it. That month turned into seven, and after 21,000 miles of driving and camping - all the way to the Arctic Circle in Alaska and back, leading to a complete lifestyle reevaluation and change. Thankful for all of the blessings I’ve been given in life, and for the family and friends who saw more in me than I knew was there. Always learning.
