Jedidi­ah Jenk­ins is as leg­endary as his name sounds. Born by two par­ents whose paths crossed while walk­ing across the Unit­ed States, adven­ture was in his blood from day one; a trait he would say lives in all of us. At 27 he came across a quote that plant­ed a seed in his soul, that seed qui­et­ly sprout­ed upwards over the next three years to man­i­fest itself into the begin­nings of a mon­u­men­tal journey:

“I am los­ing pre­cious days. I am degen­er­at­ing into a machine for mak­ing mon­ey. I am learn­ing noth­ing in this triv­ial world of men. I must break away and get out into the moun­tains to learn the news.”-John Muir

On his trav­els from Ore­gon to Patag­o­nia, Jenk­ins gets asked one reoc­cur­ring ques­tion from the peo­ple he meets along the way—But why do you do it? Take a moment to watch Jenk­ins on his incred­i­ble jour­ney that rede­fines his life, rewires his brain, and re-inspires him to engage in the world around him then ask your­self ‑Why not?
