Video: The Thousand Year Journey from Oregon to Patagonia

This video might hold the answer to it all …

Jedidiah Jenkins quit a job that he loved to ride his bicycle from Oregon to the southern tip of South America. Filmmaker Kenny Laubbacher joined him for his month-and-a-half long journey to find out why. This video explains it all, eloquently.

A few good quotes:

“The routine is the enemy of time.”

“I am going to do something radically different; and I am going to do something that scares the crap out of me… and see if that changes my brain chemistry.”

“When you’re a kid, everything is astonishing, everything is new. So your brain is awake and turned on … once your brain establishes a routine, the alertness goes away. The fascination with the way the world works.”
