Life in the outdoors is something I embrace and enjoy – but living in the outdoors is a whole other thing; which I would probably embrace and enjoy.
I mean – I’ve touched the void; camping, roughing it – but to commit my life to it seems like it could only be a dream.
That said, my good friend John shared this story with me yesterday, and it’s so much more than what you would imagine it would be. Which is why I feel compelled to share it with anyone who stumbles upon this.
Yes, on the surface, it’s a beautiful story about a couple of people roughing out their life in the wilderness of Alaska – but woven within the adventure, and the amazing scenery, is a story about love and being in a relationship where you rely on one another.
Some of the things Jean says, we all need to hear. This isn’t a chance occasion where two people cared about one another and went camping – this is their life, day to day, and her way of explaining it should be an eye-opener for most folks.
I’ve only watched about half of the documentary, but I am moved – and it is followed up with a sequel called “Arctic Son” . So, I feel like the lives of these people are going to inspire me a little longer than anticipated.
Thanks for sharing your amazing story, Jean. At the time of writing – I can’t wait to learn more about you and your family.
