PSA: Winter/skiing/cold is here! (note, second vid is from a most epic opening day @altaskiarea yesterday❄️ ). Staying hydrated in the winter/cold can be challenging. First, if it’s on an expedition to subzero temps in Antarctica (first photo ) you have to melt all the snow. But, if you are like me, I don’t always feel as thirsty in the cold and can slack on dehydration prevention while skiing, winter/ice climbing/cold adventures. And if not hydrated properly, you get colder much faster, especially your toes/fingers/extremities. If your extremities are getting cold, hydrate more and see the difference! I have added @drinkdripdrop to my daily dehydration prevention and relief, whether skiing or at home shoveling snow or working on the computer. Hydration is key. I have to say, I would never promote a product that is not a positive enhancement mentally or physically, or an important tool for life or in the field. I have been using/testing @drinkdripdrop the last few months. I recommend trying this, it will change your game for dehydration prevention/relief (really ). We will also be taking @drinkdripdrop on our humanitarian expeditions to treat and prevent life-threatening dehydration where it is needed the most. Cheers to DripDropORS to advance human performance and health. Check them out to learn more, the amazing give-back projects they support, and the high quality ingredients with 3x more electrolytes and half the sugar of sports drinks.

It’s #worldkindnessday , it’s instantly obvious this should be every day, let’s hope this day will remind us to try and remember/be mindful/not forget kindness in this human madness and beautiful chaos and immaculate mayhem...kindness and love and gratitude on this unique journey. Going to share some words from my daughter @lilliana_libecki : In a world where we can be and do anything, be kind and do good. First photo in Nepal, second photo in India, both humanitarian expeditions of joy.
Of course, the most important part of an expedition equation is packing/prep. I suppose the same goes for life. And one of the most important constants is dehydration prevention/relief, without it, no summit, literally/figuratively. Hydration is key. I have to say, I would never promote a product that is not a positive enhancement mentally or physically, or an important tool for life or in the field. I have been using/testing @drinkdripdrop the last couple months daily and on demanding projects. I recommend trying this, it will change your game for optimum hydration (really ). We will also be taking @drinkdripdrop on our humanitarian expeditions to treat and prevent life-threatening dehydration where it is needed the most. Cheers to DripDropORS to advance human performance and health. Check them out to learn more, the amazing give-back projects they support, and the high quality.

It’s World Mental Health Day. Our mental health should be focused on every day. I am not sure what is more important for all of us than focusing on our mental health, especially in this beautiful and challenging chaos of the cosmos and immaculate mayhem of our society and world currently. I just want to say that I have mental health issues and trauma that I work on, and seeking help and support with family, friends and therapy is so important and so good...if we can all be open, honest and vulnerable with ourselves and each other, we can make our lives and the world a better place. I personally go to therapy and do all I can to focus on my own issues and trauma to be the best human, father, family, friend and global community member I can be. I hope we can all focus on mental health team work and find joy and peace on this wild ride of reality... ✌️😎✨
ANCHORAGE, AK! THURS., OCT 10! *** In effort and intention of integrity: I have received many negative responses to this post that basically say it is offensive.

That being said, to those this offended, definitely the opposite of my intention, and I apologize for that. The time is now, life is sweet, death and or old age is coming, no excuses...*** Presentation and Party to benefit Hatcher Pass Avalanche Center! Come hang with us for a great cause!

Scroll👉 Paintings by @amanda .charlton.art Art comes in so many different forms, entities and genres, and honestly art is one of the most important, powerful and emotional aspects of our lives in so many ways. Supporting art and artists is equally important and in my opinion part of integrity and a responsibility as humans. I want to give a huge shout out and bow-down-gratitude to my friend and artist @amanda .charlton.art. Her energy and soul is art. I am honored to have her art and friendship in my life. First painting: I asked her if she could paint a narwhal for my daughter’s ( @lilliana_libecki ) birthday, her favorite/spirit animal has always been a narwhal. And as you can see it is just wonderful and brings joy and a reminder of wild, beautiful nature and Earth daily. We just love it! And the mountains and sky though! Second painting: Just got it today! So happy! I also asked her if she could paint my two dogs/fur family, Scree and Glacier, white German Shepherds. Who pretty much live for being in the mountains/nature and are my best friends. They teach me about unconditional love and loyalty, to always go for an adventure, to live in the moment, and are true life partners that give until their very last day. So emotional! So much love! The detail of them in the painting captures their look, energy and character in every way perfectly. And also the capture of their connection to mountains 🙏🏻⛰. And love the little flower between the dogs that looks like a heart❤️🙂. And Glacier’s ‘party hat’ ears she has always had. Thank you @amanda .charlton.art you are one of the good, special humans. Your art will bring us joy every day! #art #emotion #narwhal #germanshepherd #supportart #artsupport
Mountains. Sanctuary. Home. After a decade of exploring the east coast of Greenland, my brother @andylibecki and I were able to climb the first ascent of this beautiful tower, the Polar Bear Fang...mountains, sanctuary, home. Gratitude for all. Always looking to the mountains literally and figuratively. The time is now... 🙏🏻 🌎 ⛰
Hey! Just a friendly reminder that we are alive! Embrace this beautiful, cosmic, incredible world and reality we have! The time is now! No excuses! Move forward with love and let go of fear! Be kind and do good! Be gentle with our planet and all on it! A rare and beautiful fog bow, also known as a white rainbow, somewhere off the east coast of Greenland with friends in search of unclimbed mountains and joy.
