Thinking about this place, and the animals and people I met there.

I was lucky enough to be asked by the awesome folks at @moment to design a look for their awesome new video app @rtro that just launched. I needed it to look true to me, so we went to the desert and filmed dirt bikes on an iPhone to start it all off. I hope you’ll give it a try, and thank you again to everyone at Moment for letting me work with them on such a cool project 🤟🤠

Yesterday @rmfwc called me to give me an update on all of the work they’re doing on our home on four wheels, and I couldn’t be more thankful to them. These guys can do anything. I plan on making a video about how @claire.mankins and I use our camper soon, and the way that it makes camping more about spending time with the people you love in places you love, which is really what it’s all about. These photos are from just one night in the camper, a night that will be in my mind always. Swipe to the last photo to see Claire and Penny’s album cover.

From a very long time ago with @montanalex. 1, 2, 3, or 4, and why?

For the new The Call of the Wild movie coming out, 20th Century asked me to talk about how I answer that “call,” and I actually just want to be real about why this stuff is so important. Spending time in wild places activates a better version of myself. When I’m at home or traveling it’s really easy for me to get caught up in all of the endless problems we face day to day, and I sometimes struggle to separate myself from those problems. When I’m able to get out, and get away from it, there’s this initial resistance, the voice that says “you might miss an email,” or “you might miss __________” - but what I find is that when I DON’T make time to be in nature, that’s when I’m missing out. Wilderness has a way of putting things in your life into perspective, and while we can’t all go live in the wilderness all the time, staying in touch with it and our true selves in those moments can lead to a much more enriched life. We can take these glimpses home with us and apply them into our “normal” lives. Like I’ve said before, you find out that time and distance distills all, and what’s left matters all the more. The Call of the Wild comes out on 2/21 @callofthewild #CallOfTheWild
