Gear’s all sorted, plane is loaded and we’re off for our first attempt at base camp! 🤞If this goes as planned🤞, I’ll be back from the mountain in 3 weeks - and you can follow along with the 👆link 👆in my bio. ✨ Send good vibes! I’ll feel them! 💫
... I weighed in at 80lbs of personal gear all in (+ food and water) - with group gear divvied out on the glacier I’m expecting to haul ~120lbs. 💪

“Pain, I came to feel, might well prove to be the sole proof of the persistence of consciousness within the flesh, the sole physical expression of consciousness. As my body acquired muscle, and in turn strength, there was gradually born within me the tendency towards positive acceptance of pain, and my interest in physical suffering deepened.”

Soul. Heart. Body.
.
Lots of love for myself today. I’ve been spending day after day rebooting on sun and sweat and wholesome food and fresh air and deep sleep, mostly by myself, mostly in my body. It’s magic. I’m feeding a deep wellspring of energy and strength - from the sun, from the land, from the wind - reserves I’ll need very soon. I know I’m ready to embrace suffering as stimulation, to be back in my body but also beyond it. I’m headed into the Alaska Range tomorrow for a whole lot of growth and expansion of a soul in a heart in a body. There’s nothing to be conquered, not here and not ever. Simply a humble soul asking for grace, a full heart ready for communion, and a strong body capable to see this through. Don’t wish me luck, wish me love.

3/3
I want to tell stories that matter in ways that compel people to act. That compel me to act. Because they are so real and raw and spiritually overflowing that continuing to live how you have been living, is no longer possible. I want to craft stories that are complicated and painful, beautiful and consuming ... but not yet redemptive .... because it must be action that is the revolution defining who you might become. Action must be our deliverance: each time, every time.
.
I want to tell stories that matter in ways that seed service above all else. In service to those who grant me permission to share their story — a story that is and will always be theirs, not mine, with which I have been charged to share in order for their voice to be amplified : or : — a story that is mine, but never only mine, demanded to be poured out in order to extricate myself, to be laid bare in order to exchange the currency of power it holds over me, for me, for you. I debt to be paid for my freedom : or : — a story without human voice, when then it is a shared story of co-creation, co-existence, where you will find me in the echelons of the rivers and the wind and the birds and the beasts. Then the duty falls to us all to represent all that has been silenced and disenfranchised by the ugly ego of sentience blind to it’s own insignificant place in a cosmos composed of expanding matter that could care less who will bear the burden of our folly.
.
I want to tell stories that matter to hold power to account, to deliver the change that these peoples and places are in need of, the change that is needed in their way, in our words. Great characters situated within a misappropriated recounting of those facing inconceivable odds and triumphing in a daily resistance to endless neglect, faced with forgetting. A story that is theirs and deserves to be told, through which mine weaves, encircling and ensnaring the edges of our fate but from which I carry the burden of being out-from-beneath. The unbearable heaviness of a future that is not made for you, is not mine, but demands many things of me.

I’ll be traveling for the next several months, space (and time and money) that I have painstakingly carved out and stubbornly defended in order to determine if I have what it takes to follow a more authentic path, or at least a much scarier one, the one I daydream about too much. Several months ago I wrote the first draft of a manifesto. I’ve been re-visiting and considering it frequently as I work through what it means and how I might better align my actions and plans with my values and purpose - and I’m curious to see what, if anything, it costs me. Maybe not much at all, maybe everything? I’ll only know if I try.

I tried. It’s not for me. I’m not sorry for that. I was born traveling, and I’ve continued to do so by making every decision I can to preserve and perpetuate my opportunities accordingly. I love capturing the landscapes I adventure through, however posting beautiful yet reductive and benign photographs - trending towards a luxury holiday destination - doesn’t satisfy me. It’s not how I perceive, think about nor process the world I move through, nor is it what I want to be known for. These captures are disingenuous, that I am truly sorry for, and I have been struggling with why/how it’s been making me feel all kinds of ways for all kinds of reasons. It’s not authentic. This isn’t what I want to share with you, this isn’t how I want to use my voice. Where is the heart and soul of a place? There are stories to tell that matter.

Last year, in the middle of his world-record setting 117 day 7-summit speed circuit, @steveplain.project7in4 supported a wheelchair summit challenge to raise awareness and funds for @spinalcure. This year the park is replacing the stairs with longer ramp runs. Not a coincidence.

Queen of the Hill. First to top out of the day, it’s a self-anointed position who’s primary responsibility involves abdicating upon descent. ⠀

When Dad says, “go help your Mother.” Help her get outdoors, help her be brave, help her smile wider and laugh louder and leap further… because you’ll always be there to catch her. And then, once everything is covered in mud and sweat from a day spent “helping”, help her with the laundry.
. 
Don’t get me wrong, I am all about helping mammas out – all the humans acting as mothers out there deserve all the kudos and praise. But I also have two brothers and in my house, there was never much question as to who was expected to help who. The same was true at school. So before you tell a brilliant and capable little girl to go help her mother [insert traditionally feminine task here], I ask all the moms and dads and brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and grandparents and godparents and babysitters and youth group leaders and teachers out there to set the example and do it with her, because we all pitch in. Because there’s no such thing as women’s work.
.
@salomon launched a contest-driven campaign to deconstruct clichés about women in the outdoors. And well, it’s damn inspiring to see all these woman kicking ass and taking names so I figured I’d pitch in some free marketing as well. Cheers to all the #salomonWMN.

Admiring mom is a family value. Let Mother Earth be your role model!

Our children deserve a future on this planet with clean air and clean water – a future that we grown-ups have been charged to protect and (childishly) continue to disregard in favor of $shinier$ things. It’s not even the future anymore, it’s already here.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
.
I champion all the little girls (and boys) out there who want to be princesses, ballerinas, school teachers, nurses and mothers, but I sure as hell will fight for their right to change their mind to become dragon-riders, mountain-climbers, soldiers, computer-programmers, astronauts, and Presidents. Coincidently, I also am running for the very important and historic role of Dr. Astronaut-Princess President. Oh, you’d like to be my Chief of Staff? Qualifications include SQL and EQ.

The only classroom you've ever needed:
Biology: marine ecosystems
Physics: transmission and refraction of energy wavelengths
Geometry: wave patterns
Trigonometry: over-the-horizon navigation
Statistics: Prey-Predator Modeling 
Astronomy (meteorology): tides, currents and prevailing winds
Conservation: protected marine zones 
Business: ecotourism, food systems
Law: of the Sea
Art: color theory and composition
Literature: Verne, Melville, Chopin
Poetry: rhythm and movement stirring your soul 
Philosophy: persistently feeling insignificant
Faith: sunrises, sunsets and big storms on open-ocean
Mortality: being in the middle of that big storm, (irrational) fear of #sharks
.
I could go on... We are students. 
Everyday should be #earthday

Bommie⁣, derived from Bombora. ⁣I’ve learned lots of new words and phrases down in Straya, but remain fairly skeptical of ‘arvo. ⠀

Every afternoon it rained. Some days in the mornings too. Scattered tropical showers across an expanse of ocean that melted into the horizon. Blue on blue. Sometimes blue on blue-grey or green-blue on green-blue-grey. An infinity of blue. A harmony of blue. A symphony of blue. Blue walls of water on the wind. Blue-green rivers of water under the surface. Blue-grey glistening, glittering heavy raindrops dancing across wetness to wash over you, to push on you from the heavens. Tides and currents pulling you from the depths. There's life in the water that falls from the sky, pushed by the wind, absorbed by the ocean, evaporated by the sun. Weightlessness becomes thickness. Water calls to water. A homecoming. ⁣⠀
.⁣⠀
I love being on the ocean in rain. Heavy raindrops on eyelids, streaming into mouths and noses and ears, blanketing hair and hands, thrumming on hearts. Finally enough to drink for a thirsty soul like mine. ⁣⠀

It's doesn't feel like swimming. It feels like flying. Soaring. Take a breath, hip hinge to dive down, a single underwater pull into a long even rotation from the hips through the toes. Point them. A whisper of your breath outward into a world of quiet, slow, rhythmic suspension, seamless, flowing, centered and supported. Bubbles. Eyes roving. Ecstatic life. Let your arch pull you to the surface. Bright light at your crown. Exhale like a whale. Blow. Inhale. Repeat. Endless fascination. ⁣⠀

It’s that time. Time to say thank you and goodbye. Time to put everything on my back and leave. I’m grateful for the time here, but most grateful to go again. Anyone who knows me know these portraits are my portal home, home to the wide open spaces where my spirit roams free.

I love the creative process and expressive platform this stage permits me. Artistic and technical, iterative yet open-ended, balancing color and format and content. Choreographies micro, macro, meta but also generative, self-reflexive, both seamless and suffered over.
.
Lately, vertical composure driving diptych visual storytelling, and time capture, and experimentation. Tempo and motion and atmosphere.
