The Adventures of George Mercado

Within these pages you will find documented blogs, photos and videos which define the journey of a simple man. A man who loves the great outdoors, loves to shoot photography and simply loves to explore every facet of his life. This is the journey of my existence, where it takes me I do not know, what I will find there is a mystery to me.  The desire to explore is my therapy, it is the pathway to inner peace. The passion of the journey fuels me venture forth from the madness of society, to the sanctity and simplicity of God & nature.

It is there where I feel the most at home, there where I yearn to roam, and there where I find serenity and calm. Those that know me, know where my heart is. Those that do not will never truly grasp my reasoning until they have walked a mile in my boots.

Adventure Blog

Every blog recaps our experience, every word captures the moment, every image defines the story. I try my best to share with you what we encounter. I do so, so that perhaps it will inspire you to begin a journey of your own. An adventure that you can share with us as we do with you. 

God puts people in your life

In these trouble times, it seems so many people are lost. So many people find themselves running around like a chicken without a head, trying desperately to fit in, to get their lives in order. I can honestly state that this is, as I feel like this ever so often. It...

The Rescue

Adventure Videos

Here you will find some of my videos, some of our memories and some of the amazing experiences we have had. I will say some may not be kid friendly, I will work on toning down my profanity in the future.  It is just that when you are driven by excitement and the thrill of the adventure. Well you merely blurt out that which comes to mind, not thinking twice of what was said. This is human nature, this is me and I will not sugarcoat it because it may offend some people. This is life, its raw, natural, uncensored and truly magically with its emotional highs and lows. Nothing is scripted, nothing is planned, and nothing is set in stone other than the fact that our time is limited on this earth. So we must truly enjoy every fragment of life that we can, every experience, every feeling of emotions and every journey.
