I made this in hopes it gives me motivation to actaully edit travel videos… Very little editing went into this but its clips from my travels!!That all started with my first time on a plane…

It was a wild time… Besides being robbed 3 times, “2 hospital” visits, scammed and taken, an appendix issue, a major/minor crash, being held in an airport, and a mildly fucked up arm I would say it all went pretty smoothly.

Backpacking Wyoming’s Wind River Range and the Grandeur of the Cirque of the Towers
Presented by Roger Janezic
The majestic Wind River Range, located in western Wyoming, is a part of the Rockies whose dramatic scenery and challenging mountains have made it a major destination for outdoor adventurers. One such adventurer is Roger Janezic, whose 2016 backpack to this wilderness area will be the subject of Genesee Valley ADK’s November 7 program.
With the aid of copious photographs that he took on his trip, Roger will discuss the unique geology and fauna of the Wind River Range. One such feature that will get special attention is the dramatic Cirque of the Towers, a spectacular circular valley surrounded by steep granite mountains, some of which are 10,000 to 12,000 feet in height. And for those who may be inspired to experience this adventure for themselves, Roger will also cover his gear and the preparations he made for the trip. This is a program that you surely will not want to miss.
Roger Janezic is a father of three, an engineer and a resident of Rochester since 1988. He has backpacked extensively throughout the northeast United States as well as some stints in Wyoming and South America. He has taken his children backpacking every year since they were old enough to walk. He believes as John Muir wrote, “that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity”. His favorite historical person is Abraham Lincoln and his favorite contemporary person is his wife, Lori Bryce.

This video is a recording of the November 7, 2018 meeting of the Genesee Valley Chapter (GVC) of ADK. The meetings are open to the public. For more information about meeting times and previous recorded meetings go to: WWW.ADK-GVC.ORG

Couple Spends 8 Years Living the Van Life & Backpacking Around the World

Views:1378653|Rating:4.89|View Time:5:16Minutes|Likes:12771|Dislikes:276
Lauren & Craig are a couple of nomads from the UK who have been living the van life and backpacking on only $20 a day for over 8 years. They’ve visited over 50 countries so far and don’t plan to stop their long term travel streak anytime soon.

They typically work for 6 months, and then travel for 1 year using the money they earned. They apply for working holiday visas when visiting Western countries, which is how they manage to work while they travel.

They also buy camper vans when they visit countries where the accommodation is expensive, which allows them to spend next to nothing on accommodation while living in a van (they sell the van at the end of the trip to make their money back), and they also save money by eating out less and not going out drinking every night.

On average, the couple spends $10 each per day while backpacking and/or when living the van life.

During their travel time (when they’re not working), they go travelling and backpacking in countries where the cost of living is cheap, like India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, Central and South America.

We love this couple’s sense of curiosity and adventure, and are excited to follow their blog – Non Stop Travelling – and follow them on Instagram, to live vicariously through them while they explore the world.


Thanks for watching!
