David AttenboroughA lifetime spent outdoors with nature, what more could you ask for? I would love to be able to spend the majority of my time outside; unfortunately, that usually isn’t an option. The societal norm has become sitting in an office building 40+ hours a week and spending copious amounts of free time indoors where the climate can be controlled. Whatever happened to the good ‘ol days of sledding until you couldn’t feel your hands and feet and spending summer running through sprinklers?

I can only imagine what a great journey it would be to travel the world developing a greater understanding of the plants and animals we share earth with. Nowadays, just going camping feels like an adventure if you happen to see a bird or insect you don’t recognize. I guess there’s just something about the feeling of being somewhere no one else has ever been and a sense of discovery that can’t be replaced by any artificial means. However, I suppose we can enjoy the next best thing – living vicariously through the lucky few who do get to travel the globe and bring home astonishing HD footage.
