I'm not really a gym kinda guy. Instead, I tend to use the "great outdoors" to keep healthy. Hiking, surfing, trail-running, that sort of thing. Check out this view from Point Mugu State Park in California! Way nicer than a gym...
Packing protein-rich snacks for energy on these adventures is key. Like the new Jack Link's Beef Jerky Beef Steak Strips, made with 100% real beef. How do you #RaiseTheSteaks and get your sweat on? Post a photo and tag me and I'll share some of my favorites! #Sponsored
Follow along as we head on safari in Tanzania!
There's nothing like that feeling you get after completing one of your goals! I think it's one of the reasons I enjoy climbing mountains so much. Tackling a tough challenge, and being rewarded for your efforts with amazing views and a sense of accomplishment. 😀
This spring I've teamed up with Jack Link's Beef Jerky, creators of a new Beef Steak Strip made with 100% beef, to inspire you to push your personal boundaries this year -- whether at home, at play, or in the office.
Show me a photo of how you #RaiseTheSteaks for a chance to win a box of Steak Strips for yourself! I'll share some of my favorites too. #Sponsored

Road trip time! Anna & I are driving down the coast of California’s PCH this week, trying to find all the cool spots.
Have you driven the PCH before? Have any tips for us?
My friends Amanda & Matt are leading a tour to Iceland this fall. Looks fun! One of my favorite countries.
Every year I like to challenge myself, and push my comfort zone. I decided to try some winter mountaineering in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains!
So I climbed Mt. Whitney, the highest mountain in the continental United States at 14,505 ft (4421 m) over the course of two days via the “mountaineer’s route.” It was a tough, but exhilarating experience!
To help fuel my adventure, I brought along new Jack Link's Beef Steak Strips made with 100% beef for a quick & tasty boost of protein when my energy was running low.
What are you doing to #RaiseTheSteaks and challenge yourself this year? Tag me in your post and I’ll highlight some of my favorites! #sponsored
The beauty of Africa, in photos.
Anna and I went on safari in Tanzania for our honeymoon. We saw Africa's "big five" animals, visited some beautiful places, and met with a couple local tribes. Here are some photos!

Our last day in the mountains of Kamchatka. We have to take the snowmobiles 110km back to the nearest town. Saw bear & wolverine tracks the other day...
Satellite again. One of our snowmobiles broke down. We’re 3 hours from camp, and the sun is going down. Getting cold. Every day is an adventure here!

Meet my new friend Snow White! She’s one of 1200 reindeer we met the other day here in the wilds of Kamchatka, Russia.
They live off grass growing below the snowpack, roaming free across a vast landscape with their nomadic Even herders keeping them safe until it’s time for culling some for meat & hides, as they have for a thousand years.
Craziest day ever. Traveled 60km over one of Kamchatka’s icy high plateaus. Battling 60mph winds. -39F wind chill.
We were forced to evacuate back to the village of Esso for a night, as we wouldn’t have made it to the next reindeer camp before dark.
Really impressed with everyone on our team. This was hardcore, and way more difficult than we were expecting.
Time to break out the vodka!
Today we hung out with 1200 reindeer! I got a selfie with one. Climbed a snowy volcano. Drank reindeer blood with the Even people. Normal day in Russia.
Welcome to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia!
Kamchatka’s largest city is surrounded by epic volcanoes. For the next two weeks I’ll be co-leading a photography expedition into this landscape.
We’ll be off-the-grid, traveling by snowmobile and staying with the indigenous Even people.
I’ll be sharing a few satellite updates (text only) until we get back to civilization!

Meet the Dik Dik! This super cute antelope is one of the smallest in Africa, at just over a foot tall. We found this pair while on safari in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park.
They mark their territory with their “tears” from that black spot at the corner of their eye. How cute are these things?!
