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.

Jesus Christ! Must be like living on pluto. One question.....Why would anyone want to live there? This place is suitable for polar bears and those in the witness protection program and thats about it.
