I am currently on the road, hitchhiking around the world shooting a documentary, or twelve. I am hoping to inspire those around me through unorthodox, and sometimes extreme methods of living. I have decided that in order to accurately measure and also to enable the best possible footage I will not spend a single dollar on food, shelter, transportation or anything personal for the next full year, and only sustain on what has been generously and spontaneously provided for me.
After witnessing enough negative behaviour in complete strangers to complete strangers to last a lifetime, I have decided to set out to accomplish many things. Prove the world is not such a nasty place full of untrustworthy people, open the minds of society that anything is possible, and that a new friend or opportunity is just a conversation away. When common courtesy seems to have evaded us in 2010, I am setting out in search of the good in the human race. Where have all the good people gone?
I will use my social skills, resourceful thinking and life experiences to accomplish a highly controversial move; travel the globe on less than $500 and breakdown every sterotype and false perception. Its going to be tough sometimes, but I know that what is waiting for me will rock the socks off of everyone reading this. Just wait 'til you see the videos.....

27 e-mails, wondering if I was dead, alive or alive but almost dead.

Although my week deep in the Kootenay mountains was eventful, and among epic proportions, and despite it including I think 5 near death instances, I am happy to report I am alive, and quite content, at that..

I was hitching from Banff to Lake Louise, when I got picked up and a something better came along than a few pics of a frozen lake. I was offered to stay in a cabin deep in the Revelstoke backyards, in a canyon near a town called Beaton, British Columbia, that offered anything and everything a person could dream of.
Ive been back into town for 15 minutes, and miss it terribly. Its a good thing Ill be calling it home soon. I HAVE SO MANY STORIES TO TELL. Over 460 photos to go along with too. I have 4 days until my rendezvous with my camp/crew and Ill try to pump out all the fun details before then....

Oh, p.s., Revelstoke is paradise.
