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.....

I don't know what I'm more bummed about, the brutal weather, or the fact that my camera wont allow me to show you....
I awoke pretty fuzzy eyed, after finally seeing Avatar 3D. I think I might have been one of the last few people on the planet who had not seen it. At least that's how it felt.
My opinion? Overrated. People were telling me it was life changing. It was a groundbreaking film for sure, but it wasn't what I was expecting. It was actually kinda lame and I fell asleep towards the end.
So yes, I awoke a little groggy this morning. I really had to rub my eyes when I saw the sights that awaited me outside. It. looks. like. Christmas. There are big fluffy flakes whirling aimlessly outside, dancing in the harsh wind. There's half a foot of snow, and it only looks like alot more is coming.
Its pretty crappy weather to be hitching, but I'm going to take the gamble. I didn't go out last night due to the ice(which was a good decision; lots of accidents) but today is the 9th, and I need to get on the road. I have a place to stay in Sault Ste Marie, a girl replied to my couchsurf request. Ther'es even surfers in the Sault! I'm trying to get out there sooner than later. I'm also pretty excited thinking what awaits for me on this journey. Should be some more crazy times.
I wish I could put up a photo, but just picture white. And then add a decrepit tree and more white.
So the verdict is; I will be starting this trip and hitching today! Ill just have to bundle up..
