The Trip

 

It all starts...

On the 13th of May, along with our 4 crew members, my brother and I will embark on an 8 day trip through Germany. Our goal is push ourselves further than we have ever gone before. We will be competing in an 18km obstacle course organised by Tough Mudder, kayak the world famous white water river Loisach and summit Germany's tallest mountain, Zugspitze. The Tough Mudder race will force us to work together as a team and face challenges like mud slides, barbed wire, and ice water. Having never kayaked before, the Loisach river will test our ability to adapt and learn quickly under pressure. Summiting Zugspitze will require us to scale vertical cliff sides using rope, navigate a glacier, and ascend nearly 3,000 vertical meters in 8 hours. Determination, confidence, and a goal oriented mindset will play a key role here.

So why do we want to take on all of these physical challenges? We believe that extreme situations like the ones we will put ourselves in can literally be life changing if we succeed in anchoring them to important values and beliefs. The core of our trip and documentary revolves around making a conscious decision to begin finding out what we want to do with our lives. What do we want to achieve? How do we want to be remembered? Once we find answers to these questions we will begin working on bringing them into reality. What kind of person do I need to be to get there? What is holding me back? How can I turn my weaknesses into strengths? We have spent enough time dreaming, now we want to do something about it. We believe that we can inspire others to begin the same process in their own way.
