I’ve never shot a gun. I never had any plans of shooting a gun. I’m generally pretty against guns. But in Svalbard, people carry rifles to protect themselves from aggressive polar bears that roam the island. There are 300% more polar bears than people here. Here’s the thing: I would never shoot a polar bear. I really don’t think I could. In a place like this, we’re intruders on their territory; we’re nearly at the North Pole. So it almost felt like a farce as I knelt on the wrong knee, held the gun up to my eye with the wrong hand on the trigger, and happened to hit the bullseye on my first-ever gunshot. Rifle education, informing about flare guns, bear awareness, food varieties, and learning how to set up our expedition tents for the first time…in an absolute whiteout-sideways-blowing-blizzard, with partners we barely knew, an hour’s snowmobile ride up a foreign glacier. Geeeez. #SFTVsvalbard

janna_bishop : @spring_harrison is that your jacket up there?
dinorah360 : ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
bjarnesalen : Thank you for 3 awesome weeks buddy!!
caswell666 : So then maybe you didn't deserve to be there if you can't stomach what it takes to survive.
davidhildreth : Great job, what caliber? .308 or something more powerful?
alyssalarson_mt : ๐ŸŽฏ
ryandaythompson : And then there's @reubenkrabbe who looks like that gun belongs on his shoulder. All this is missing for him is a double double and a mickey...
hernamefreedom : Sounds intense.. Must be amazing.

3 weeks ago I landed on Spitsbergen, the only inhabited island of Svalbard, with a team of people I largely didn’t know and an objective that was, to me, quite vague. The small town of Longyearbyen—the capital and only true settlement in the entire autonomous Norwegian nation—welcomed us with strong winds, low temperatures, and complete whiteouts. For the remainder of March, we were to create a short ski film as the first known crew to attempt doing so during the height of the Arctic winter. Now, allow Instagram and me to tell you the story of how it transpired, and how my toes feel after wearing ski boots in a consistent -40 windchill. #SFTVsvalbard

I just hopped off the northernmost commercial flight on the planet. @salomonfreeski has invited me, along with @codytownsend, @bjarnesalen, @chrisrubens, @reubenkrabbe, & @anthonybonello, to the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world: Svalbard. It's a sizable island, dwarfed by the immensity of the sea in which it sits, halfway between Norway and the North Pole. It's also where we are spending the next three weeks camped on a glacier, climbing and skiing mountains under our own power. I likely won't be posting on Instagram until I return to Internet at the end of the month, but I will be able to satellite-share short Tweets and Facebook updates. Friend and Follow 'Brody Leven' to learn how excitedly scared I am of polar bears, what it feels like to be truly cold, and how suffocating it feels to not have Instagram for multiple hours, even DAYS, at a time. #SFTVsvalbard is my first of what I hope to be many expeditions with the experienced Salomon crew. It just happens to be in the Arctic Circle, feature polar nights, and make Google Earth rotate a direction you didn't even know it could rotate until you typed "Svalbard" and pressed Enter. Talking with you is what makes this lifestyle worth it for me. I'm already looking forward to our conversations and catching up on the pictures you'll post and the experiences you'll have in March. You're awesome.

Walking the thin line is sometimes the only way for me to achieve what I know, inside, is possible. It isn't easy.

hydroflask : #firstupfirstlight @brodyleven
teton_dirt : In that zone things are simple and make sense Brody Leven. Don't fall down, one foot in front of the other. No static, no errant thoughts to the complicated realities we'll soon rejoin.
