I hope you enjoyed this first on-location video!

If you want to see more involved projects like this more often, be sure to check out the sponsor (Squarespace) with the link in the description. They truly made this possible and they're a committed sponsor. I've also used them for years before they became a sponsor so all the praise I give them is 100% true.

Ayyy I live in Vermont, it sucks, it’s literally Canada in the US. Cold as fuck, and only woods and forests. Oh and a bunch of heroin.

What did they do before planes?

I saw an add for a TSA officer position in Barrow. The annual salary was $60,000 a year. Considering the median household income in the city that's not so impressive.

Why does America exists? That’s the question the entire world is asking, why bother, the world should finance the construction of the border walls to keep Americans in!

Barrow is the northern water tribe?

so let me get this straight. Insanely cold climate, half the year is constant sun and the other is constant darkness, groceries cost at least twice as much, and theres pretty much nothing to do. Buying my tickets now, I'm movin to Barrow!
