While camping in Peru we heard a bullet ricochet off of a metal tower less than 20ft from our bikes. A serious wake up call, they wanted us off their land...clearly we had no clue. Five guys approached us, we thought we were going to be killed, but they were happy to see we were harmless travelers and let us pack our gear and buzz away

Most of the HOLY SHIT moments were probably in Alaska. In the Clearwater mountains while bushwhacking and wading through mud and mosquitoes, we found ourselves stepping on fresh grizzly tracks (about the size of my head). A very "in tune" moment, knowing that shit could get very ugly...very fast.

Getting shot at in Peru was also a wake up call: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1ld1dh/we_are_two_friends_who_bought_oneway_tickets_to/cby12xh

I'll be honest, the most profound and thought provoking idea was very simple (for me at least). Now, more than ever, I am happy to appreciate that the quality of my life is no further than my four walls. Who do I live with? Where do I sleep? What do I eat? Where do I walk?
