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.....

Oh, Hi Mr Blog, how are ye?

Excuses, excuses, I know.
Ive been away from maintaining the blog for so long, but I promise its only been with good reason. A) was treeplanting, but we all know how that ended.(I did keep a journal for the most part) B) was me taking off down south to the Okanagan where electricity was scarce, Internet even more elusive. C) My side trip to SF, and now....my new job!

I am currently working as an assistant guide for a mountaineering expedition company, and we've been hired by a German outfitter to take on one of their groups. My first day went swimmingly well, we hiked the Balu, near Rogers Pass just outside of Revelstoke Ntl Park. They were all quite keen on seeing their first bear, and although they had been spotted in the area, we weren't so privileged.

Holy snap, just saw the time. I'm off to bed, tmrw we are climbing in Kokanee Glacier Ntl Park. Photos and in depth recap of the last 3 days to follow.
