Burma's incredible journeys are chronicled on Instagram, of course, where an astonishing 27,000 people follow his exploits.
But perhaps even more incredible is the journey of Burma's owner, Stephen Simmons.
Returning from the Iraq war in 2008, Simmons, like many veterans, found the transition to civilian life difficult, Mother Nature Network reports.
His coping mechanism?
An emerging school of thought linking high adventure to therapy.
"My friend and therapist Chris Fadness, a Gulf War veteran, is on the cutting edge of PTSD therapy," Simmons told The Huffington Post. "He taught me that PTSD is very much a biological function - it's not just in our minds - and that we can do things to positively impact how our bodies respond to stress and anxiety. 'Adventure therapy' channels your biological symptoms to work in positive rather than destructive ways."
And so, to the far and rugged reaches of America!
