@andy_mann @ladzinski and @ethan_pringle bask in the orange glow of the Stronghold. With 15 poles and a finished height of over 6 feet, the Stronghold tent was basically our living room at base camp. We cooked in it, stored gear, watched movies, and basically just hung out in it to avoid the bugs. 🐜 It's a good thing that @mikelibecki had the setup process dialed, cuz it would've taken the rest of us hours to get it figured out😅⛺️ @mountainhardwear @dell @reddigitalcinema @alpinestartfoods #anythingfortheshot #expedition #tentlife #greenland

Cairns are simply piles of stones that have been used since prehistoric times for many purposes. As a hiker/climber/outdoorsman I use them not only to mark trails but as a sort of meditation. I love finding a cool spot and spending some time balancing and building these little rock towers. It forces me to slow down, breathe, and find a calm space. I spent a couple evenings in Greenland down by the shoreline making some of the more precarious cairns I've ever done. Conveniently, they served the double purpose of relaxation time and making a good lil picture😁📸 #anythingfortheshot #cairn #greenland #fjord #mountains #rocks @mikelibecki @ladzinski @andy_mann @ethan_pringle

Truly a crazy experience, Siggy is one hell of a boat captain, without him and Hans we'd probably still be stuck in ice out there😂 also if you look close at the end you can see me slide off the roof of the boat onto the bow😎 #He'llsinkher #toolit #Repost @ladzinski ・・・ If there is one thing I've learned over the years it's that adventure is completely diverse. In my many times to the arctic I've NEVER been stuck out at sea in a boat surrounded by sea ice. We spent about 6 days in the conditions you're seeing here. Breaking free at times but generally for small periods before the shift of the tide or a choked section of ice flow halted our progress. It was disconcerting initially, hearing the boat slamming into it ice and not knowing what the hull was capable of taking. Like anything. You eventually just get use to it. We were fortunate enough to have our Icelandic captain Siggy at the helm, a true Arctic legend and about as good as they get. He's no stranger to these types of conditions and has seen it all, from being stuck at sea in ice for well over a month to even sinking a boat after taking excessive damage! I gaged my fear on his demeanor and he never once lost his cool. @mikelibecki @ethan_pringle @andy_mann @3stringsproductions @dell @reddigitalcinema @alpinestartfoods @mountainhardwear

I knew going into this trip that a 6 week expedition to remote Greenland was going to be no joke. When @mikelibecki called me in preparation for the trip and asked me how I felt about the possibility of being solo in camp, with the high likelihood of polar bears around, I've got to admit I was pretty gripped. And even though we never had any bears in camp; the struggles of heavy loads on sketchy terrain, constant swarms of nipping bugs, and ever present homesickness definitely takes a toll. I'm more worn out than I've maybe ever been but I wouldn't trade the experiences I've had these last 40 days for anything. I can't thank @ladzinski and @andy_mann enough for giving me the opportunity to slog it out alongside them on this amazing trip.☺️Anyway, enough sappiness, here's a few goofy selfies I took along the journey in different states of haggardness😁 #1 is from our high camp just below the real rock climbing. #2 was a few days into being stuck in sea ice at the beginning of the trip. #3 Our stagnation day full of rain, snacks, and movies. #4 The haggard mane at high camp while @ethan_pringle crushed high on the mountain. #5 The current state of the mop on my head😂 Enjoy! #sweetnessoflife #anythingfortheshot #expedition #dellrugged #selfies

#Repost @natgeo Ethan had been frothing at the bit to pizza down a berg all trip and he finally got his chance😂it's been great getting to know this crazy dude🤣 #senditfortheboys #pizzascanfly ・・・ Video @ladzinski & @andy_mann / The hallmark of any grueling expedition is the ability to laugh along the way with your friends as much as possible. It makes the hard times tolerable and the good times even that much better. We just returned from a 6 week expedition to Southeast Greenland, a mission led by @mikelibecki, where @ethan_pringle and Mike climbed the hardest route in the country up an unnamed mountain. A burly first ascent on un-chartered terrain. On the long boat ride back to Tasiilaq, Ethan wasn't done with "firsts" and decided to ride an inflatable slice of pizza down a 300 foot iceberg, launching into the icy waters. This trip was peppered with moments like this, the ones that make you feel like a kid again and keep you and your friends laughing. Hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did in person 😂 @connor_seybert @3stringsproductions

Well after a month in remote Greenland, I'm back in civilization! It was a hell of an experience; from being stuck in sea ice, to clouds of biting bugs, to camping on a ledge 1600' off the ground: it kicked our asses but was so totally worth it! Now the team is all back in Tasiilaq, Greenland enjoying the comforts of civilization again. We'll be returning home in a few days to sort through the massive pile of amazing photos and video we got! If you're not already following @ladzinski @andy_mann @mikelibecki and @ethan_pringle, you should, to see all the amazing stuff from this awesome trip! @mountainhardwear @dell @reddigitalcinema @alpinestartfoods #dellrugged #greenland #expedition #anythingfortheshot

Well I decided to go off book for this one so hey, Joey here! When I camped in sequoia national park there were tons of great hikes and on one I found this little guy, a Golden-mantled ground squirrel. He was just enjoying his lunch of mushrooms when I stumbled onto him and I must say, was pretty brave compared to all the other animals because I got pretty close! #wildlife #nationalparks #squirrel #sequoianationalpark #anythingfortheshot #hiking #adventure #camping #wilderness

Being away from my lil pups is hard, but I know Gus wouldn't keep up in Greenland.😂 He barely get around the block before I have to pull him along by his leash. #puppy #pup #slobber #cute #blacklabsmatter #dog P.s. Sorry for not posting for a while, this last week has been CRAZY! - Joey

Slacklining is a sport like non other I've experienced. It takes a relaxed focus,; relax too much and you don't hold the body tension to keep your balance, focus too hard and you become too tense to feel and react to the line. This days goal was to rig a waterline between two submerged trees in Eldorado Lake. My @gibbonslackline wasn't quite long enough to rig out in the lake as planned, but I managed to find a little lagoon to rig over anyway. #slacklife #slackling #slack #kansas #anythingfortheshot #gibbon #balance #adventure

Our family Florida trip was a cloudy one so any brief window when the sun popped through the lizards of St. Augustine would scamper out and catch a few rays. They made good little models, not wanting to leave their patch of warm sunlight. #anythingfortheshot #wildlife #florida #goexplore #lizard

Hello from Greenland! But not really😬 @joeydefore and @aaronvplummer are taking over my feed till mid August! Hopefully they won't wreck my feed too much😂 In all seriousness though there are very few people I'd trust to take over my instagram. Being a photographer I take insta pretty seriously as it's kind of my constantly updating portfolio. I know the guys will do a great job and I'm stoked to come back and see the awesome original content they post! I shot this picture on the final day in Florida and the only day we were able to catch a sunrise that wasn't totally socked in with clouds!🌅 Seemed like the local wildlife was stoked to have some sun too😁🐦 #anythingfortheshot #florida #takeover #sunrise #ocean #goexplore #birds #morning #clouds #cloudporn

Well, this time tomorrow I'll be in the air headed for Greenland with @ladzinski, @andy_mann, @mikelibecki,and @ethan_pringle! Im beyond stoked to get out there and crush it, but I'm definitely gonna miss my fam and friends so much! Speaking of friends, @joeydefore and @aaronvplummer(pictured) are going to take over my instagram while I'm gone! They'll be posting some archive stuff of my work and some of their own stuff too, so be on the lookout! Also! Thanks to everyone in my life that has taught, helped, and encouraged me to do the things I love! I wouldn't have the amazing opportunity to work with awesome people and do cool stuff without you! #anythingfortheshot #travel #fire #longasscaption #thanks #night #stars #trees #explore #bonfire
