Start at our Groove Life headquarters in Spring Hill, Tennessee, and head due Northwest. Travel over 3,320 miles and you’ll land in beautiful, remote, and rugged Alaska, where it all began for us.
You can imagine the journey and culture shock it must be to go from southern, warm, green territory to snowy, cold, uncharted Alaskan wilderness.
Did you know Groove Life started out of a freezing garage in Port Alsworth, Alaska? Groove Life Founder Peter Goodwin worked relentlessly to design and create our very first silicone ring.
Fast forward 6 years to Spring Hill, Tennessee, where over 250 people are now employed by Groove Life, and you’ll find yourself in the middle of one of the fastest growing businesses and one of the funnest places to work.
So, you might be wondering what took us back to Alaska this summer. Well, for one, the Tennessee humidity.
Well, we can’t tell you yet. But we did capture some amazing footage from our insanely talented team that took themselves along for the ride with Peter himself.
Check out what they had to say, immerse yourselves in the stunning scenery, and keep your eyes peeled for what’s to come. You won’t want to miss it!
"The journey makes you respect the destination all the more. Flying for nine hours to get to Anchorage, looking down at the glacier covered mountains, to getting in a 9 passenger propeller plane and flying two more hours through a windy mountain gorge, to touching down and taking a forty minute boat ride to a remote island lodge... I truly felt like I was on a journey to where few men had been before."
-Ben Godley, Video Director
"There's nothing like getting to experience how truly remote this place is and how much planning and logistics go into being able to live in the Alaskan bush. Being in a place like this removes the illusion of control that we have in our day-to-day lives."
-Scott Harrison, Director of Photography
"Alaska is untamed. It is time agnostic. Alaska demands that you conform to it. That is a humbling, yet glorious thing."
-Peter Goodwin, Groove Life Founder
