Here I am at the base of yet another mountain looking up at a big and exhausting adventure ahead, yet this is when I’m most excited and this mountain is actually just a blank page.
Well I should start by introducing myself. My name is Jordan Skattum and I am a 17 year old outdoor enthusiast. I love all things outdoors, but am especially passionate about skiing and photography.
That slightly sunburnt face belongs to me. At that moment I was running on 4 hours of sleep, super dehydrated, rather hungry, and was preparing to ski the 6 miles of slush to get back to the car. But the weird part is that I am never more happy than when I’m in those moments.
You would probably call me crazy for saying that, and honestly can I blame you? I don’t even understand why that is fun to me.
I may have a dumb amount of motivation, but you can’t say I don’t get some banger pictures from it.
So why would I take time away from the mountains and write this blog?
Well simply put, I want to inspire others. I want to show that this is possible and that YOU can be doing what I’m doing if you want to. (I get it if you don’t though 😏)
I plan on discussing anything and everything that I can think of with this blog.
I may write a post about climbing a mountain one day, and why I love bananas so much the next day. You never know.
But one this will always be for sure, what I write here will always be here because it is something that I enjoy and I think will help or inspire others.
But for now, I hope you all make the most of your day and don’t forget to get outside.
